I'd say Nay personally. A 15"x31" cooking surface is kinda small and that lid's got some serious gappage.

^ agree (for me). The 15 inch dimension is really limiting. On the positive side it looks like 11 gage (1/8") framed with angle and that is pretty good for that style cooker. Maybe a lower offer to see how motivated the seller is?

Just another ceramic cooking knucklehead ......All I see is a whole bunch of metal to heat up (waste fuel)

Nay at that price. I'd need to see it in person to gauge how well it would hold heat/air. Looks like it would make a nice grill in a pinch.

It looks well constructed and the dimensions are correct if it where bigger it would be a deal but Size Matters

Yea, when I looked this morning it was 15.5"X20" and $290. A 20"X36" is a pretty nice sized pit. Don't know if I would spend $325, but it does look like it is well made and reasonable thickness steel. Can't get it out of my head that I've seen that design somewhere on here a few months back?

Never listed anything on CL, but can you see how many hits your ads are getting? Perhaps linking it here got him a bunch of traffic resulting in him bumping the price.
