Default CL semi-score? Old Country Vert Smoker?

This look like a decent deal? Been looking for an offset, never thought of a vertical though. Trying to find this model online, but have not been successful. Thoughts?

That's the same configuration as a Bandera. I've got a left handed version (BSKD) and it's my favorite cooker.

I'd try to haggle a bit, but I'd also take it for the asking price.

make sure that price includes help loading it.

Academy Sports used to sell NB and OKJ smokers including the Bandera even though most other places had them discontinued. These Old Country smokers appear to be the current version of some of what they used to sell. I think vertical cookers are best, and in general, $150 for one built like the Bandera seems like a good deal. How thick is the metal? What are the dimensions? Important questions. It looks like two of the wheels are missing on this item, so subtract $10 from asking price at least. It's also missing the 1/4" NPT plug, so there's another $5.....

Thanks. Yeah noticed it looked a little lopsided. And the obvious big hole in the front. Thanks for the input. We shall see how it goes tomorrow!
Thanks again for the advice.

It's also missing a thermometer on the vertical side. Check the inside carefully since he didn't show any pics of it.

I'd start at $100 considering the missing pieces.
