    The sun was out and I got to drive out to the country to pick up the bbq this wekeend. The gentleman that was selling it was the Estate Manager (as in looks after his UK homes) of the (42yr old!) US Hedge Fund owner who lives in HK, this was his one of his holiday homes and so the grill has had very little use, it was kept outside though.

    And some pics













    And in action





    Unfortunately, the rotisserie motor was not available, I'll have to look to buy one but the the parts were.

    I need to decide whether to keep it indoors or out, it does have the cover.

    Thanks for looking.

    Wow, that is one of the nicest Summits I have seen. Not sure what you paid for it, but it looks like a great find.

    Nice grill! What is that cooking in the perforated pan?

    Really nice score. If you have the option to store indoors I would do so. The cabinets on these grills are cheap painted steel and love to rust over time. Dry storage helps to prevent rust. The covers are nice but tend to trap moisture underneath since the grill cannot breathe very well. This will also cause rust.

    Stefan has some good advice on how to prevent premature rust on that grill.

    Don't store it over concrete or if you do put some kind of rubber mat under it to keep the alkali fumes and moisture from the concrete collecting on the metal

    Thanks noted. I'll keep it in the garage in that case.
