Default CL Score Weber Performer 2009

Well yesterday I was surfing CL and listed was a Weber Propane Grill for $120. I clicked on it thinking it was going to be a gasser and to my suprise it was a Performer.... and the reason they listed for getting rid of it, was because they bought a "better" grill.

So I texted them and went over there after work and picked this bad boy up. I tried to haggle but they were firm at $120, which I still think was a steal. It was in great shape.



They said they bought it a couple years ago. I guess 4 years is a couple of years. It's a 2009


The grates were in good condition, won't have to buy them.



Only defects was a missing washer/bolt on the lid holder and a ding in the lid.



It came with a cover which is in rough condition and will be replaced and an extra propane bottle. A little bit of oven cleaner and elbow grease and this guy will be nice and pretty.

Even though I felt bad for haggling but I might as well try. This was a steal at $120.

Nice find.

Coincidentally, I found the same generation Performer today on CL, 10 mins after it was listed, for $100. It looks great. So far, I have resisted the temptation. I have 2 SSPs. I cannot justify another Performer!

Here it is. Hopefully a Brethren will grab it....SOON!

Yep exactly. The nice thing is that it matches my 2005 performer. I'm tempted to sell my 2011 performer that is the newer style to a friend that wants one.
