You really should use craigslist for this grill, there are bargins every where for a smokey joe. http://boston.craigslist.org/nos/grd/694450068.html $4 bucks

No smokey joes but a few webers in your area

Gator is right. The 14.5 inch Silver has an air vent directly on the bottom, with a small ash catch pan. The 14.5 Gold has side vents and a locking handle to make it portable. And the 18.5 inch Platinum has side vents and locking handle also which makes it portable.

I thought Weber quit making the Platinum about a year or so ago, but maybe they resumed production since they seem to be on the market again. Maybe someone with more Weber info than I can chime in on that.

According to those in the know, the SJP has been discontinued.
http://tvwbb.infopop.cc/eve/forums/a...3/m/9590060845

18.5" Bar B Kettles are much nicer IMHO.

I was looking for a discontinued Cast iron grate holder for my Performer and Weber CS said Ace and True Value usually have stockpiles of Weber products that get discontinued, I had no luck finding one. Call around, someones bound to have a display model at clearance price.

Gator, I forgot I have an Ace Hardware on the way to work also. I will stop by. Is there a price limit you want to pay if they are not on sale, or do you just want one? I think they are usually $50 to $80 and the Memorial Day sale is probably over.

To get the rebate you had to purchase by 5-26 so I am out on that one. I hope they still have them for $39 though. If not, then don't worry about it.

I just bought 2 today. They were still $39 and the store in Bartow still had 1 left. PM me and we'll get together or I'll ship it.


If anybody else wants one, let me know and I'll go pick that one up also.

If for some reason it is gone, let us know and I will start checking around.

Should be cheap shipping too!

Congrats Gator on the new grill, and great of you to do that John!

Well, there is 1 more left there and it's a small store that doesn't get much traffic. If anyone else wants one let me know. Or I may just go by and pick it up for the potential spare parts since its a Discontinued unit.

Yeah, I went looking for them after reading this post to take camping with me and the family. Better than draggin one of the WSMs and they're more compact.
