To buy or not to buy this WSM package?

    So i found a guy near me selling a 22.5 WSM.  He used to compete and has had the WSM since April.  He said he used it about 5-6 times but took good care of it.

    With that he is selling a stoker with three probes, from https://www.rocksbarbque.com/.  And an upgraded 10 cfm fan.

    He is asking $600.  I was looking to spend $300ish on a WSM so this added item has thrown me off.  I think I would pull the trigger at $500, but dont think he will go for it.

    What do you guys think?  Overkill?

    I would let him know that you really aren't after the stoker, but if he will take $500 for the whole thing you can do that, if not offer him $300 for just the WSM. The WSM runs fine without the stoker IMHO, but some folks do love their gadgets. [​IMG]

    Or just offer him $300 for the WSM and then use the $200 to load it full of MEAT!!
