Default Potential CL score...

I have a WSM 18.5 that I bought for $100 on Craigslist a bit more than a year ago. I have been jonesing for a 22.5 but nobody lets these things go down here in BBQ country. Today a NIB 22.5 showed up on CL for $260 and I am torn as to whether I shoudl go after it and then list the 18 to try to recoup some of the cost. Is $260 for a NIB 22.5 a score? I probably don't have more than one day to make up my mind.

That's a $400 unit - $260 is a STEAL and you should grab it RFN!

Really, you ask that question to a bunch of Smoker addicts on here? Move it, Mister and pick up that WSM.

This is the photo in the listing, but it's probably just stock.

I made an offer of $250, no reply so far. He also has an 18.5 NIB listed for $200, but I already have one of those.

Why does this guy have two NIB WSM's?
I'd be leary and double check everything.
