Default My first CL score

After a year plus of looking almost everyday....finally came across something worth pulling the trigger on. I didn't even know there was such thing as a 18.5" One-Touch Platinum. $50, picking up after work on Wednesday. I'll post some more pics after I get it home.

I had no clue they existed either. That's a great size. Great color too!

What's the date code?

Just saw this posted, not 5 mins ago. Was actually about to post here about it, since I'd never seen or heard of an 18" performer either. Wouldn't have been the right fit for me, but a great score; glad it went to a Brethren! Congrats!

Anyone know if the Pro Q Stacker for the 18.5 WSM will fit?

There are a lot of things that can be cooked on an 18 inch weber. I think they make the greatest steak cooker on earth.
