My best was a WSM for $20, next up was a Genesis Silver C with tank for $75.

Of course, I did score my first WSM at a neighbors garage sale for $10. Turned out to be the World's Oldest WSM.

How about a Good One Rodeo for free. Check the link in my signature. I still haven't gotten it fixed up but for what it is it's still a steal.

I'll let you guys decide.

18" WSM barely used $150

Smokey Joe Silver $10

Towable Stickburner $400 Needs some modding.


Massive 12' Stickburner that I then put on a trailer that I got for free from a friend. $1500 Super Heavy Duty!!!

Weber Ranch that needed some metal work done.$200

My vote is for big boy.

I'm gonna have to say it was my Whalen 37.5 inch King Kettle that was used 5 times and cleaned up like it was almost straight out of the box for $300. it's not a fuel hog and is fantastic for indirect cooks.

I've had a couple:
Brand new in box wsm 18 for 50 dollars (win at a golf tournament, don't need it I have gas). icing on cake-1 mile from my house.

A funny one.
I found a Performer on cl for 150, the thing looks to be in perfect condition (it was). Decent deal there, but it got better. I get to the neighborhood without my gps and get a bit lost. As I am driving around trying to call the guy, I drive by a house. At the head of the drive with a free sign is a ratty old-you guessed it, Weber Performer. Also it has a rotisserie ring! Knock on the door, say thank you, and load it up.
So what to do? I drive to the other guys house and say hi. I tell him the tale. Told him I will still take his but only for 100. Sold. 2 Performers for 100, 1 hasn't been used 10 times. I kept the rotisserie gear and gave the old one to a friend.
I woulda gotten away with it if it weren't for you meddlin kids and your dog!

Best Score we think is our Pre 1979, no date code, Red Head for $15. This photo is AFTER ALOT of elbow grease and restoration, but man it cooks like a charm!

Another good score was our 18.5" WSM, like new, 2004 date code, with all new grates for $115

22.5" OTG - 18.5" WSM - Weber RoTo - SJ Rescue
