Some years ago I had a Broilmaster grill. It was wonderful. High heat, porcelain coated cooking grates, flavor-saver-rocks, etc. It was built-in and used natural gas.
When I sold that house I was tempted to dig it out and take it but instead I left it. Since then I have had six or eight grilles; Webers, Charbroils, whatever Sears sells, etc. They were all dogshet.
A new Broilmaster is now about $1800. I wanted one very badly but I just couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger. So then I saw one for sale on craiglist for $50. A P3 head, which is the top of the line, and in Hunter Green, which is the rarest of the rare. So I e-mailed and e-mailed and heard nothing back.
After about a week I saw another Broilmaster for sale on craigslist for $50. It was a #4 head - one size smaller - but what the hell? So no response, no response, no response from the P3 seller and I arranged to drive the hour to get the #4 head unit. It turned out to be a D4CP (Deluxe 4 Cart Propane) which is the top of the 4-series line. So it comes with two covers and every accessory that Broilmaster sells. So pay the guy, load it all up, and am literally still driving home when my cell rings:
Hi; this is the guy with the P3 Broilmaster for sale.
So, even though it was 1 1/2 hours in the opposite goddamned direction, I went and got that one too. <g>
I put new burners in both of them and converted the P3 to natural gas - and Man they do work great!
My son caught some 200+ lb. tunas last weekend so when we weren't eating it raw we were grilling it rare.
I had a point to make with this story - but whatever it was; I have forgotten it now. <g>
