I was shopping at my local big box Wally World store today, and saw this floor model of the Weber 14.5 Smokey Mountain. It was marked $154. No instructions. No cover. With a couple of scratches here and there on the lid. It was the last one in the store. I said how low could you go? The outdoor manager offered $99. I said sold. Except I was out on a run, and didn't have my wallet. Told him I'd be back in an hour and to hold it for me. I came back, found the cover laying on the floor over by another Weber grill, and he ringed it out at $89. Bottom line, check your stores for closeout prices on floor models if you're in the market. You might find an incredible deal. I added a Nomex gasket kit from an online store for $17.50 and an Unknown BBQ hinge for $44 and I have a nice new tool to use. I already own a MES 30", but wanted to start playing with charcoal. It's just myself and my wife, so to me, this is the perfect size for 2!
