Default My best CL score yet!

I checked Craigslist after a long day of work and BOOM this was posted for free. They said it was going to be sitting on the curb. I couldn't find my keys fast enough!

It has this styrofoam stuff in it to make it look like ashes. So I think it was a store model and never used.I opened up the "oven" door and there was the original rotisserie motor.

Has anybody seen one of these?

Not since I was a kid.

Very cool! We had something similar when I was a kid back in the middle of the previous century. A piece of history! (I don't think ours had the oven - just cylindrical hood.)

Oh, yeah. If you grew up in the 60s, you have seen a grill like this. That style of grill was very common back then. You rarely see one like that, today.

The rotisserie was part of the package. That, and cooking grate that you could crank up and down.

On the downside, they tended to rust out faster than you could wear one out cooking on it. I think my dad may have possibly gotten two summers out of one -- barely.

Even though they suck, it is cool to see one for the memories.
