Grates look rough, but I put a full price offer in last night right after I posted it here, you know an hour after he posted it on marketplace, and he said it is pending. I will find the right kettle for me, but for right now it is the WSM 14 that is getting used like every other day.
Jim,Be patient. I missed a few deals that I thought would not be beat. Ultimately, I ended up with a NIB, "Crate & Barrel Green" Performer for a price I really felt a little guilty about paying. It was worth the wait, even though I drove almost an hour each way to get it. Similar, though not nearly as good luck with my Genesis. In both cases, I decided it was something I wanted, but didn't need, and I'd wait for a good deal. Turned out to be over a year of Craigslist browsing, but all good in the end.
