Good Score

Been looking at the 22.5 Weber Gold series for several weeks. Local home stores are around $148.00. Amazon around $132.00 with free shipping. Best ebay auction was $96.00 plus $30.00 shipping. Karen found an Ace Hardware super store web site based in Ft. Lauderdale selling it for $119.48. I pick it up tomorrow.

Yes, I got the black. Didn't see the need to pay extra for green or blue.
Have you seen the price on that ranch kettle, $1299.00! If I had that kind of discretionary cash, you can bet I'd have the large BGE. Heck, I could get a Lang Pit for that money.

You'll get to do some good stuff on that baby. I have the silver version and it's really easy to use.

Yes the grate is hinged, which I believe is standard on these units. I also got a cover for it. They didn't offer the charcoal holders for indirect setup, but the local Home Depot stocks them.

I was going to post a link to an ebay auction, but the bids are already at $103.00 with just over a day left. The shipping is $30.00, so by the end the total will be more than Amazon. I can't believe people will bid on the thing without considering the freight into the final price.

Congrats on the new grill. Fire bricks will work for holding back charcoal, too... if you have some laying around.

This is South Florida. Finding fire bricks would be like having snow in winter. If they were locally available, I'd have built the wood burning oven I want.

Picked it up and had it assembled in less than 1/2 hour. Now I'm looking at the accessories. They have a grate with a removable center with CI grate insert and/or CI pot.

You might want to consider getting a rotisserie for your new Weber as well. I recently got one for my kettle and I'm glad I did.
