Hi All,

I've talked to this person and have a tentative deal worked out for this WSM on CL.

https://raleigh.craigslist.org/app/4424598267.html

I was wondering what is a good price for this smoker?

So that brings me to this question, is this worth buying if I have a barrel smoker already? I'm getting better and better cooking on the barrel but I've seen so many good things about the WSM.

Buy it if you need, want, and can afford it. I got 2 barrels and a weber and only 1 gets heavy use. I am OCD about having crap sit around my house that doesn't get used enough. I don't want my yard looking like a hell hole like so many others I see around this town. But from what I have seen on these forums most these guys need an army of cookers. It's your money so enjoy it. :thumb:

I just sold a 2 year old 18.5" WSM that had been cooked on less than 5 times. All the parts were there, no rust with a cover for $225. $175 seems like a decent price for that one. All depends on how bad you want it.

I sold my 22.5" for $200. I think $175 is a little high based on the description, but that is just me. $150 feels right IMO.

I would offer 150 as well, it looks to be in good shape, and rust on the charcoal grate is normal and wont hurt anything.

It depends if it still looks like that. He say's it's missing the heat shield for the bottom in the description but it's on in the picture.

I bought my 18's for $80 and $60 on CL, but they weren't in the kind of shape that one in the picture is. If it's nice and you really want it half price at $150 isn't bad.

Check Raleigh CL a little farther down there are 2 WSM 18.5 for $125 each. I'm out in CA for a few more weeks or they would have already been gone.

We agreed on $100. After reading all of the responses, that seems like a really good deal.

Just a secondary question, Should I have gotten a PartyQ for my drum or the WSM? The cost is roughly the same.

I did check it out and bought one of them. Thanks for the info.

They had been sitting under the house for awhile so I was wondering should I pressure wash the entire inside and then re-season it? What are other recommendations to cleaning the inside since it's been sitting for awhile?

It depends on what it looks like inside Sometimes a good burn will clean it out for you

Market rates for the 18.5" WSM are usually in the $150 +/-$25 Range in decent condition. They pop up for less sometimes but they usually get scooped up quick. In the bay are a $125 WSM on CL will only last an hour or two. Good luck!
