On some of the forums I peruse people say, if on a budget buy a cooker on Craigslist.
Fine & dandy but where I live you never hardly see a cooker I'd want & the few you see are 80% or more of new
Well new years nite I was watching the Fiesta bowl & while bored I looked on Craigslist & they had a WSM for $100. I'd never seen one ,but knew they are $300 new.
I called the man , he said he'd gotten a BGE for Christmas, the cooker was in great shape & I told him to consider it sold. I'd had to work this holiday & my wife went to New Orleans Sun AM to go to the Saints game & see the children.
Got the WSM Sunday after work, it had very low use, I'll mount a thermometer & it'll be fine.
Mom's coming back tonite & I'm going to soon have to fess up or move a cooker to hunt camp.
