Look what roadside Santa brought me!!

So my neighbors were out for a walk and spotted this and I darted over and picked it up… rusty inside but overall pretty clean. Will need new grates. I’ve had as many as 4, 18in WSM’s over time never saw a water pan like this? It’s a 2010 and I’m sure mine were mostly older. I see this larger water pan in the schematics on weber.com .. when/why did they go to the deeper water pan. ( I haven't used water in a pan for years just some crumpled tinfoil and cover with more tinfoil to catch the drippings)

Roadside Santa? That must be Regular Santa's cooler cousin! LOL
Your neighbors sound pretty great too.

Congrats - nice score.🤩
I have a 2009 and Weber must of really changed the design... Mine does not that large water bowl - door handle- plastic lid handle or temp gauge?
