On my way back from fishing on the Connecticut river, I saw a Weber Performer with the stainless steel table on the curb looking all sad and lonely. I turn around to check it out and the home owner pops out of his garage. He says the previous owner left it with the house and he didn't want it. So I loaded it on the truck strapped her in and brought it to it's new home. It came with a full load of Kingsford briquettes in the hopper and it was nice and dry, score! I run to the local hardware store get some #00 steel wool, a razor scraper, and some simple green. I scrape off all of the built up crud built up on the grill, then spray it down and scrub the hell out of it with steel wool. After a few hours of this and couple of cold ones I ended up with this beautiful green SS Weber Performer. I already have a black one with the plastic side table, but I just couldn't resist. :D

Nice. I see stuff like that (well, perhaps not that clean and nice) often, but without a truck, and of course my back being so bad. ain't no way I can get it home.

Steve I never pass up a Weber grill. I always stop to see if they're worth the effort for me. Now I need to find me one in RED

Awesome! Found a nice Weber a few years ago that needed a few parts. Gave it to my buddy, he loves it.

Last year I found a Weber Genesis gasser. Looks like the owner didn't want to be bothered to clean it. Cleaned that one out and gave it to step daughter when her and her fiance bought they're house.

Nice!   Do those SS models not have the table mounted propane adapter and igniter?  

 

I've got a blue performer and matching blue gasser (both cheap CL finds) but that green is my favorite weber color.

Yes they do, but the one on this is missing parts.

It looks great! I too am quite jealous.

Good score.
