Well, my nephew brought down my Craigslist find last night (Wisconsin Rapids to Oshkosh for those of you in Wisconsin).

I waited until this morning and then looked closely at what I had.


One-Touch Silver kettle (new enough to have plastic handles)
Weber Kettle rotisserie
Four generic BBQ skewers


Pretty decent shape overall, but I still took the wire disk on my angle grinder to the racks and had to get rid of a bit of rust on the counter-balance.

Took some dish soap and fine steel wool to the lid, ring, and body.

Looks nearly new.

All cleaned up.

A small amount of elbow grease, and this grill looks new again.

OK....the wire wheel took the place of elbows for the racks. :boxing:

The chicken holders and freebie skewers.

With the ring installed.

And, yes, that's a Weber rotisserie.

Throw the lid on that bad boy, and we can officially call it a SCORE!!!!!!:clap2:
$60 for a 2006 OTS and a rotisserie combo that, from the looks of it, really WAS used "a few times."

Of course, I greased her up, have some charcoal firing, and will do some bacon-wrapped tenderloins for supper.:grin:

nothing wrong with this ! i know i'm a picky guy but i suggest getting into the rotiss motor and tightenings things up especially the wire screws. also lube up the shafts and gears with a very little bit of white grese. on my motors i have found loose wires and siezing shafts.

nice. I saw that on CL too, but it was too far of a drive for me. Great pickup.
Good looking grub as well.

I would love to find a rotisserie with a kettle. And the grub looks killer. Nice score!
