I have a Ducane which was made after they were bought by Weber.
It's an interesting story.  Weber wanted to start making grills in China,  but didn't want to risk their reputation while working the kinks out of supply chain and quality control.

 Ducane went in big debt to expand just as a financial crisis hit and people stopped buying their high end/high priced grills.  They were bought by Weber, who used the Ducane brand name to work all the kinks out of the Chinese supply chain.  After they had suppliers and quality control they could trust they switched the name on the grills to Weber Spirit.

I got mine on clearance after the brand name was discontinued.  It's been a great grill.  I've replaced the heat distribution plates with stainless ones.  Other than those it's been bulletproof.

No pic = no grill


My Weber has been great but Houston is killing it.  Got it for $100 from an estate sale 10 years ago, repainted the wood, and it performed beautifully in San Antonio.  Now Iím replacing the burner bars every year and the frame is rusting through.  It wonít survive another move, which is a damn shame as I can fit a huge turkey in there after I found out a 25lber doesnít fit in my oven. 

Now i just wrap the rust holes with foil and see how long I can milk it.

I grill approximately once a year and not very well.  Mine's a char and it's on the back porch covered and yet somehow the tire melted flat and it's got rust all over it.  Didn't grill this 4th so I probably need to clean it up before fall.

So, I switched jobs today.  Been hustling like crazy on the walking and online seminars to bump up my points, and cashed in the last of my Amazon gift card credit from the old gig.  Had all of 3 points (equivalent to 3 cents) left when I was done.

  :lol

Got an original Xbox component cable and bottle of Tide coming.

Got Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 (Switch) today for $3.75. Best Buy sent me a $10 gift card for using their credit card, and there is some strange ďbirthdayĒ discount that didnít make sense to me, but it took off another 5%.
I really like this game. The first one was great. Very Draculaís Curse-like. Looking forward to more of the same.

Not a freebie, but it's cheap and in our wheelhouse:

https://slickdeals.net/f/14201858-walmart-hyper-tough-77-piece-electronic-repair-kit-with-storage-case-3-50-reg-13-94-in-store-purchase-only?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1

Walmart seems to be heavily discounting their hyper tough line.  This kit has all the usual game bits as well as cell phone tools and such.  Picked mine up when I picked up a prescription... it was locked behind the hardware case and the discount price was not marked but they rung up correctly.

Canceled that component cable order, turned out I had hard wired a mod to put my Xbox into composite output mode like 15 years ago.  Was actually very handy back then when I was hauling it back and forth to my desktop to access the FTP.  So, snip that wire and all my component problems went away.

Dreams on PS4 finally got PSVR mode, and Amazon put it on sale, so THAT is my final free PS4 game from all this walking.  A fitting end.

That doesn't seem like the kind of game one would want to play in psvr.   I mean maybe after you've already built something but making a full game in vr mode ugh...  They pulled all the Mario and Zelda stuff too.

Just a heads up, the Vasara collection (obscure shumps) is on the switch eshop for a dollar.  I think they are in mame, but the collection features a new 3d mode with up to four players so that's worth the price of admission.  Had some coins so I got it under a buck.

Thanks for the heads up.  Always glad to add free racer to my collection for my racing cabinet that I never have time to finish.  ;)  Most of the good xbox freebies are already dead unfortunately.  I think I missed Destroy All Humans by a few hours.

picked up a nice old little china cabinet for free to place on my covered porch next to the 6 tap keggorator I also got for free yrs ago.
The deck is attached to the porch.
I keep my glasses, plates, silverware, napkins, ice chopper, coozies, ect in it for when i'm eating outside.
mostly with kids or alone but sometimes guests show up.

Not free but some online company called Cynch is doing propane tank exchanges to your porch for $10.  I used a promo code - summergrilling

Not sure if theyíre burning venture capital or hoping Iíll pay full price (ha) but damned if I didnít get a fresh tank for $10.

My Gamestop crap came in today.  The pac light was underwhelming but dat soundwave shirt......  ladies better stay at least six feet away from me for fear of accidentally getting pregnant.  I feel like a 6 year old grown to adult size via some bad 80's plot device when I wear it.  9 dollars well spent gentlemen..... 9 dollars well spent.

Yeah, so, Kroger sold me some moldy organic basil 2 weeks ago. I complained via their Facebook page and email. And got $30 in credit. So my hurricane prep consisted of having cases of water delivered.

Hey I just wanted to pass along a really good deal on velcro cable ties:

https://slickdeals.net/f/14299847-50-pcs-reusable-fastening-cable-ties-amazon-3-99?p=139910708&utm_source=dealalerts&utm_medium=em-i&utm_term=4983116&utm_content=u6168884&utm_campaign=tu#post139910708

50 for 4 bucks and if you read the comments someone posted a 100 pack for a dollar more.  I think I'm going to get a 100 pack and put them on all my controllers and cables.

There's a killer coupon on ebay right now.  $25 off $25.01 or greater via the coupon code HAPPY25

I threw some random crap in my cart to test and it seems to work fine but ymmv.  I'll pick something out tomorrow.  I'm sure I can find something on ebay worth buying.

I just got an email in regards to the ebay credit and it's for their 25th anniversary with the email reading "thanks for being with us since the beginning" so it's a coupon for dinosaurs like me that have been doing the whole ebay thing at least 20 years ago considering I didn't have an ebay account until 1997.

So, a couple months ago, I spilled shrimp juice in my car.  Consequently, I needed an odor killing cabin air filter shortly there after.  I got one for $9 from Rock Auto that included a $5 rebate.

Who turns in a rebate form for $5?  Youíre looking at him.

So I got this worthless prepaid debit card, and PayPal has thus far resisted my usual trick of bouncing a gift back and forth to get it to my bank.

Amazon offered me $10 to add a debit card to my account... and this one worked!   :lol

Nice.  A couple of cheap-o offers:

Club Nintendo is starting to do physical rewards again.  It's Xenoblade and Splatoon stuff right now so I'm not interested, but the stuff is around 500 platinum coins (which are the free ones that are easy to get) plus shipping.   Also apparently Starlink stuff is showing up in dollar trees.  I don't know if I want to risk it as I figure a Dollar Tree would be covid central around here, but I might call my local store to see if they have any and maybe stop by when they first open.

So I forgot to post this one... been doing it for a couple of months.

https://slickdeals.net/f/14313383-cheez-it-snap-d-stream-watch-8-hours-select-content-earn-5-cheez-it-credit-and-5-prime-video-credit?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1

Every month you go to the sign up page.... click enroll and then "watch" selected videos.  And by watch I mean add them all to a prime video list on a tablet, turn the volume off, click play and walk away.  You'll get a $5 cheez-it credit and a $5 digital credit.  Here's the thing though.... the digital credit seems to be really picky about what you can use it for.  Thus far I haven't found anything that I can apply it to.

Been lagging behind with updates.... sorry.  For my monthly gamestop purchase I again decided to not buy a game and got a super metroid t-shirt and a uv reactive giant metroid.... I think the total was around $25. 

For those of you that have amazon prime, Jay & Silent Bob:  Mall Brawl is free on prime games this month.  I thought I would mention it as it's not a 30 year old neo-geo game for once.

Anything good happening with coke?  I keep chunking the codes into a bag.

Noticed Pepsi gives you about 19 cents per 20oz bottle on some weird pepcoin thing.

Still need to figure out something to buy with this $5 debit card.

No all coke has on their rewards page are places you can donate to.  I'm about to throw my caps away but the last time I did that is when they started giving out gift cards again. 

Wendy's has a rewards thing now but you have to either go inside, which I'm not comfortable doing during a pandemic, or order via their app, which I just find off-putting.... I want to yell at the lady in the speaker box than you very much. 

Bing has unbanned my microsoft account.... so I promptly turned that in for another $5 amazon card.

Prime day is the 13th I believe, so maybe there will be some offers soon.

Looks like mynintendo.com is going to go full in on physical rewards again.  In addition to the Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem stuff now they have stuff from games you might actually want.  There's a three poster set for mario 3d all stars, a lanyard from Mario Kart and some other junk.  You buy it with platinum coins, which are the ones you get for playing games and stuff.
