Default Craigslist Fathers Day Score. Wait 2 scores 1 Fathers day.

So Ive been looking for a nice Weber Genesis for a couple months after consulting with the Brethren here.

My wife said If I found it, it could be my fathers day gift. So Ive been looking on CL most everyday looking for one. Now fathers day was a day away and I hadnt found one. She was getting nervous because she didnt have anything else lined up. Then low and behold last night, 2 genesis' one silver, went up. 1 for $50 and two for $75. I called and said Id take em both. Unfortunately when I got there, the silver, which is the one I really wanted, wasnt Propane. It was NG

Offered $65 in hopes of converting it. But really wanted one that was ready to grill. He offered to throw in another 3 burner. I went for it.

$65 for the lot.




Then Fathers day I woke and checked one more time, then there was the one as looking for the whole time! A 3 burner Silver Genesis.

Even came with a Cover, two tanks and one was full!

$100 for the lot.


Now I need to figure out what to do with all the spares.

I'm confused. Did you end up with three or four grills and was it $100 total?

Either way, three or four for $100 is a great score! Clean up the other two and sell them!

Jet that red 3 burner is the best one to cook with as it has a deeper pit
and twice as many flavorizer bars gives a more even cooking temp and awsome indirect cooks with the 2 outsides on middle off

nice pick -up i see my Goodwill has 2 sitting outside might have to check them out

That's like one those logic questions: If Bob had 7 apples and gave 3 to Suzie and 2 to Billie, how many does he have? That would be 3 grills for $165. lol
