Weber Grill Hunting on Craigslist- A Field Guide

Discussion in 'Charcoal Smokers' started by omega 3, May 29, 2014.

  1. Craigslist is a great place to pick up used Weber kettle grills for cheap. However, folks selling them often don't include the specs, i.e. 18.5" or 22.5" models. I've developed this Weber kettle "field guide" that includes the important field marks to differentiate the two models. It's basically a time saver so that you don't have to send messages and make phone calls if you're looking for a certain model. If anybody finds any errors with this, then please post.

    Happy shopping!

  4. I thought I'd post this Craigslist ad because it contains so many false claims that people on this thread might appreciate.  Numerous errors in the ad. Is the seller intentionally selling snake oil, or does he have no clue?  However, I actually like this grill because it is truly vintage, wood handle on top and metal side handle, and looks like it's in good condition.

    Here is the photo and text since the ad will eventually go away:
