I made the trip to pick up this Char-griller King Griller. About 2 hour drive each way.
Since I have a Tom-Tom, I entered the address of the seller and went. Of course, the Tom-Tom never gained access to a satellite until I was on the return trip. I had to rely on what I remembered from checking Mapquest. Got their with no problems.
Picked up the grill, paid for it, tied it down good, and made the return trip.
The grill is a bit worn, but looks decent. A good bit of surface rust and such.
Did I make a good deal? Well, the grill was $150.00; I spent $66.40 on gas and $35.81 on food for this trip. Not too bad.
BUT, my truck is not running, three trucks I asked about borrowing from friends were not available. I promised the seller I would pick it up today, so broke down and rented one-a 2013 Ram. Didn't get as good gas mileage as I thought I might. So, adding all up I spent a little more than I could have got an Akorn at Lowes-
. The only difference I see in the King Griller versus the AKorn is the top air damper is not as tight as I saw in the Akorn I looked at.
Oh, well I got it! Would have been a decent buy if I had not had to rent a truck.
