5mph was heaven since you at least moved:wacko:

Was looking for a WGA and whoa!!! Picked up a WGA date code "P" 1993 and a Smokey Joe Go Anywhere :confused: date code "K" 1988 for $40.

Now some Weber Pron

I have no need for a SJ or a WGA, but if that deal cropped up on my CL, I would have been on it like white on rice.

Great score!

Thanks. I plan on using the wga to replicate Korean bbq as my first cook.:biggrin1: He actually posted it a day before I picked it up yesterday. There were a couple of gas wga's last week but wanted charoal.

I feel ya. I didnt need the Smokey Joe since I scored a nearly new 2011 free a while back but had feed the addiction. Looks like my cousin scored my 2011.:-D

Thank you sir!

Well, there were two posts on CL by the same guy for the two grills. The wood handles got my attention. He wanted $30/each but I was intersted in the WGA and we agreed on $20. I got there and was greeted by the poster who was about a 60 year old really nice German guy. So we got the talking a bit and he said they opened the boxes to put them together but were turned off or tried to figure out the whole grill portability thing and just put it back in the box and it sat there. I got the WGA and looked at the SJ and thought man that thing is cool and I love the wood handles so I asked him how about the SJ? He said just take it for another $20. I said very well and since I battled this traffic to get here might as well. Rest is history.:biggrin1:

Nice find. LA and NYC are the only places that make Chicago traffic look not that bad. Although in Chicago, the bumpers of the cars would be much closer to each other going down the road! :-P

I dont even doubt it Chris. I actually paced myself at that instant to snap the pic and it was also at that moment we had luxury of speeding through at 5mph. Otherwise it was bumper to bumper. 2 and 1/2 hours to drive 60 miles and only 50 mins to drive same distance back home.:biggrin1: I love Weber wood handles that much.

I feel your traffic pains I drive the 405 everyday. But when the goal is to get a couple great Q's it's not as painfull. Great Score.

I don't need them as well but if I did come across those units for that price....no brainer!
My buddy Dennessey picked up a SJ oldie as well last weekend...I don't think it's as old as yours but it does have wooden handles and a retro box that it was sold in.
Maybe used only once.

Ohhh the 405! I feel better about my drive already. I consider anyone on 405 a hero.

Youre right though. I was focused on the kill so I mentally blocked evrything else.:twisted:

Exactly how I felt Phu and the magic you do on it.
