    Found this on craigs list they want $40 for it.
    Thinking about buying it. Should I bother looking at it?

    For $40.00 why not. As long as it's not rusted thru that a good deal.

    How far away is the determining factor. $40 is cheap, and probably worth close to that in scrap. But it might not be worth another 40 in gas.

    Just check the bottom or wherever water may sit. It's gotta be worth 40 if it ain't swiss cheese!

    It looks like the back of a Charbroil Silver Smoker.. For $40 I would buy it fast.

    I got my CharGriller side box for $35, NIB.[​IMG]
    Walked into WalMart a couple of years ago just in time to hear them announce that everything in Lawn & Garden was 50-75% off (clearing out for Christmas merchandise).
    I figured I'd go check it out and see what kind of junk they had left.
    The smoker caught my eye but it didn't have a reduced price tag on it yet, asked the guy how much, he checked his paperwork and said $35. It was a display model, kinda dirty from sitting outside all summer and the thermometer was broken. Figured I couldn't go wrong at that price though. I told him I'd take it but I'd have to go back and get my pickup haul it home. He pointed to some unopened boxes on the floor and said "We still have three new ones, will that fit in your trunk?". Yes it did. [​IMG]
