Default scrapyard find - gloat

I found 7 weber 22.5" kettle lids at my local scrap yard. Couldn't pass them up at scrap prices. Some are a little banged up, and the handles are gone, but it's obvious they've never been used. All have AU date codes which is pretty new i believe. The scrap guy didn't know where they came from.

3 of them will go on UDSs of mine and a friends. i'll probably sell the rest on craigslist for others to use on UDSs.

Other than that, i don't know of a use for them. Too bad i didn't find 7 kettles, and 7 sets of legs.

Sure, but shipping to TX would probably be more than they are worth...

You could always call Weber and tell them that your Kettle, legs, triangle, wheels, ash catcher, cleaning system, charcoal grate, cooking grate and handles just disintegrated.On your.......ahem......7 grills.

Nice score! My WSM was purchased new in June, and also has the AU code, so I'm guessing those lids you found are fairly new.

Asner Iron and Metal down in the West Bottoms. It's the only scrap yard i've found that will sell to the public. Most places don't want to carry the insurance required to let you browse.

I was down there looking for bits and pieces for a insulated cooker build.

What were you looking for? I might have saw it.
