I never think of it but my cousin always reminds me,
My home town has a spring and fall clean-up collection; i.e. you put what you do not want tires, mattresses, grills, air-conditioners on the curb and the city picks them up.
You are limited to four items.

Well I have seen them but never though many people put grills, in good condition on the curb as you cannot put them in the garbage and the dump charges to get rid of them.
I have seen Green Egg and similar items on the curb but I am never in town early enough to get it in my head to grab one.
Many people put stuff out days to weeks in advance as often it is gone long before the city picks it up.
My cousin talked to some of the people putting stuff out, including lawn mowers, roto-tillers and snow blowers and many of them work fine but they do not want to go through the hassle of trying to sell them and just want to get rid of them as they take up space.
This fall I am going to try to make an effort to see what is out there I want.

If I do not like it , I can put it out in the spring to get rid of it.

We got our latest grill just before I had my last cancer surgery, which was the day the President was inaugurated. I believe I used it maybe once or twice then didn't touch it for a year, too darn sick at the time. It is a Kingsford that we got at Walmart, already assembled.

Lori had a thing that was supposed to be used in the oven to drain grease from whatever, but she didn't like it and I use it to put the charcoal on. It fits the grill just fine, and the bottom of the grill isn't burned a bit, because there's no fire on it. I also use a Charcoal Chimney, which uses two sheets of newspaper and no charcoal fluid, so there's no charcoal fluid taste. It works great, altho I'm gonna have to get a new one for next year. I've only had the one I'm using for about 8 years or so.....I'm thinking about a stainless steel one with a latch that opens the bottom, making it easier to distribute the coals.

had pork but on sale yesterday for 99 cents a lb so I bought 40lbs to make some bratts and sausage. Kept a chunk to cook low and slow on the grill today to make pulled pork. Usually use the smoker but its not worth dragging out and setting up for a small chunk of meat like this.

I built my wife a grill back in the '70's. I kept putting her off until she threatened to hire another welder to build one so I used up a very long day off to build it. 1/4" wall piece of pipe about 30" long with a hinged lid, a piece of line pipe for a vent, sliding plate to regulate the air, and expanded metal in the bottom for the coals to lay on and in top for a rack. Typical oilfield grill made from drops but a little fancier than most. I even made steel wheels from pipe and added a handle to push it around with. We used it for quite a few years and then went to a gas grill and my daughter grabbed the old one and still has it to this day. My son-in-law likes to cook and he's good at it. I've eaten a lot more meat cooked on this old thing since my daughter took it than I did while I used it. I've lost count of the number of expanded metal bottom pieces I've cut for this thing and I was recently warned it's getting close to time for another. I think the top piece has been replaced four times. That's a lot of cooking and my SIL still says it's the best grill he's every used. I used mesquite in it but he uses charcoal.
