Default Is this a good deal on CL?? White Weber Kettle

I've been watching CL like a hawk for a deal on a weber kettle. This one is white. Does Weber make a white one? Guessing he painted it. Not that I care about the color really since I could always repaint it.

So that is another question. Are these easy to paint?

It depends on the condition of the grates inside and the lower vents. Personally I would offer him $30 for both the white and the red next to it :) $25 for the white seems a better price to me.

Right, the inside is important. I sent him a message and he asked if I wanted to take a look at it later today. He doesn't live far so I may go check it out. I asked if $40 was the bottom price so I'll see what he says. There were some others on CL in better shape, but an hour away. I'm guessing he is wanting to keep the red one :).

I'm gonna see if he'll come down on that price. New 22 kettles are only $69 so $40 seems a little high for a used.

Whoops I misspoke about the price. New 22's are $89. He texted me he would drop to $35. I may bite since this is so close.

He said he bought it white. Never heard of white ones.

Go there and then offer him another ten to throw in the red one.

You can find them on sale, new, for about $70. I'd say no, not that old... $10, yes, perhaps, but you can spend a few dollars getting the grills nice/current. Again, I'm thinking new.

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

Well, I just did a google, amazon and a weber supply dealer search and came up with no such thing as a white weber. There are blue, red, black and green, but no white. I'd be cautious of it being an authentic weber. Check the air vent stamp on the top to see if it has weber stamped on it. Not saying it isn't authentic, but you never know!!!

Yeah I couldn't find a white one either. He said he bought it 2 years ago. He said he would do 35. Its just tempting since I haven't seen one this low this close to me

Well, the pics give it the appearance of a Weber. Like said before, if the grates are to bad off, I would pass, but if it's just surface rust, those are easily cleaned with a little brillo pad and heavy duty oven cleaner. If they need replaced, you'll end up spending as much for the replacement grates and grill as it would cost to buy new.

^^^ that's what I was trying to say. The pic to me looks like they've spray painted a black one. So, the first question is: Did they use a very high temp spray paint? If not, they've ruined it (IMHO). Then there's the grates thing. For me, I'd rather pay $70-$90 and get a brand spankin' new one than drive across town to pick up a nasty need-to-be-rebuilt one. IMHO. By the way, I have 2 of them; they're very versatile. I love 'em, but I'd rather you save a few dollars and wait to get one new or in great shape than get something in this condition and not be very happy...

Ditto. Even with high heat spray, they've ruined it. High heat paint wont last very long.

I agree. Luckily he is close and I'll take a look at it tonight before I buy. I asked him about the grates and he said they were good so we will see.
