Used WSM + Goodies, $100. Good Deal?

  1. Hey Guys,

    I ran across a craigslist ad for a WSM 18.5" in good condition (3-4 yrs old), along with a cover, rib rack, heat resistant gloves, remote meat and smoker thermometer, and a "good quantity" of smoke woods... all for $100.

    This is a good deal, yeah? Obviously depends on the brand of all the other goodies too, but I called the guy relatively late and he didn't know the brands off the top of his head, so I didn't make him go check. Mainly cause I figured the smoker itself was decent at $100.

    I wasn't planning on buying a WSM really... but it just seemed like such a good deal, and I figured I would eventually dive into charcoal smoking... so I already made the deal [​IMG]

    I'm picking it up tomorrow morning... hopefully the wife doesn't rip my head off cause I JUST bought a brand new Weber kettle as well [​IMG]

    Let me know what you guys think... haha.
  2. Holy cow he just e-mailed me back, it's a Maverick ET-73.

    I always knew I needed two of these... [​IMG]

    You did very good. I looked forever on CL for one, never did find one. I ended up with a new one.

    Yeah, you scored! Nice haul for even double the money.
  7. Yeah, definitely scored :)

    Picked it up this morning in the rain.

    WSM is in good condition, ET-73 works well, Weber rib rack, a Kingston charcoal bin filled with cherry wood chunks, another bin filled with apple chunks, and a bag of alder.

    Can't wait for the rain to stop so I clean out this badboy and smoke something!
