Default Possible bubba keg trade

Friend of mine has a lime green bubba keg. It is definitely older, and he said he would probably trade it for a weber ots (I'll probably get one off CL). Its definitely a bit older and the cooking grate is a bit rusty. Is it worth it?

I don't remember the original Bubba Keg coming in lime green? If it really is a Bubba Keg, it is worth quite a bit more than a Weber OTS.

If its a Bubba keg - grab it! Might need high temp silicone around the top and bottom vents.
Its definitely a practical and efficient cooker.

I'd grab it in a heart beat. Webers are a dime a dozen.

So, has anyone ever seen or heard of a lime green Bubba Keg?

Yeah, its wierd, it says bubba keg, but it doesn't actually look like a keg- more like a grill dome. But it did say bubba keg on it.

Edit: Never mind- the bottom looks like the keg, but i'm not sure if the top has the indentation at the handle height. It might have just been painted green by him. He said his brother gave it to him.

Yeah, I did. I like it, and the fire ring is a tank, but I do think I need to get off of the Kingsford blue (I haven't used stubb's or Kingsford comp in a while, I've been using lump). Also building a Mini wsm, so this will be a lotta grills/smokers. I can't wait to be "that guy" in my neighborhood.

Is it insulated metal or ceramic?

I'll take a pic when my buddy gets back- my phone had to repeat the second grade a few times and isn't all that high tech.
Are the grates for these easy to find? The grate on this is cast iron and is fairly rusty. I might be able to sand it down and reseason it though.
