So yesterday we were doing set up for a luau themed party we host every year. We sport the whole thing including drinks/food/festivities. I have/had 2 $25 grills that I use for events like this. One fell apart while moving it. Can't complain, lasted at least 5 years I can think of. Fast forward later in the evening, I find out my neighbor is moving after 40+ years in the same house. Guess who has accumulated too much stuff? So he asks me if I want a propane porch heater...
YES! YES I DO!
Looks nice on my porch right?
As I'm walking it through his yard I spot another gem. And ask what his plans were with it. He says he was going to pitch it
Major score!

Free stuff is awesome!  Nice score Chad!


I helped my good friend move into a new house 8 years ago, he gave me his "old" side by side refrigerator/freezer, it still works great to this day and I just pulled out a pork butt to smoke today from it.

Your lucky day.  A gas porch heater is always nice to have, and that grill looks brand new.

Would have been cheap at twice the price.

Free is my favorite Kind of stuff.

Nice score.

That looks how I got mine a few weeks ago. 2 new handles....a temp gauge....and an upgraded ash pan got me a nice unit for 45 bucks.

Ya I will need to put new handles on it but other than that it's good to go. Now I'm thinking about all the accessories...rotisserie or maybe a vortex. Decisions decisions

Pitch a Weber kettle?  No way!  All parts are available for a rebuild or ongoing maintenance. Webers never die! b
