And they may be few and far between depending on the market.
I use an Android app Craigslist Notification that helps but it seems to be a little delayed. I suppose it may be fetching listings from an archive or cache of some sort since Craig does not like other programs to search Craigslist.
I'm near Chicago and the Weber market is pretty big, though some consider it off season at the moment. Right now there are no WSMs, Performers or 26ers listed at all. (I got lucky and found a 22" WSM in December for $150
) There are two Ranch kettles though one has been listed for a while at $950 and was just reduced to $900. The other is at $500 and if I really wanted one, I'd jump. There are usually lots of kettles and Smokey Joes and it's just a matter of waiting for one close and the desired style/age.
