Red face I couldn't help myself, it was too good to pass up (redhead find)

I know, I know, I just sold my redhead right? Yes I did, but it was in horrible condition when I got it, I refurbished it with parts I had and sold it for the money I had in it to someone that will use it more than I would.

But I was checking craigslist this week as I always do, and came upon a 18.5" redhead, but in excellent condition. This is only the second redhead I have even seen on CL here (I bought the first one) and I wanted to take a look. It is almost like new, I was told it was used 3 times, and I would believe it. It's an "L" stamp (1989) like my last Redhead, but this one has lead a much more boring life. Even the original stock wood handles are like new and the charcoal grate has charcoal rails which I was surprised to see. I couldn't say no.

Here she is.













I'm not sure what I will do with it. I almost don't want to use it. I'd probably part with it if the right offer came along, but I just couldn't pass it up.

Grats! That looks like the same one I saw posted on one site, that I then cross posted on another. If it'd been anwhere close to med, I'd have snagged it.

Get you a round piece of glass and make a table out of her. That pretty thing should be inside.

Or fire it up and cook some steaks.

They're removable, they just 'hook' into the charcoal grate. I got a set with one of my last kettle scores.
