Here is my 2448 AKA "Holy Smokees"
Here it is loaded up on Saturday for my little ones Bday
Mine was not bought from Ritch, I found it on CL about 6 months ago. It was on the side of a restaurant being neglected. The previous owner said it was too hard to cook on and he was just using it like a charcoal bbq. Except the clown was dumping the coal on the tuning plates instead of using the charcoal grate.
After some extensive refurbishing and clean up. I added some things to it that Ritch puts on the new ones and this is the result. I still need to paint it but I figure I can do that anytime. On a side note, I emailed Ritch when I first got it regarding its age. Ritch got right back to me and also sent me all new decals and a Gator emblem for it. He was really willing to help me , even though I didnt buy it from him.
