Hi, I just joined.
I saw an ad on Craigslist for what looks to be a model 50 smoker for $150. The add says it "works great". From research on this site, that seems like a great price if its functional, but looks like replacement parts for this 15+ year old model are expensive. What would be the most important things to check when I go to look/buy? I assume it's reasonable to ask owner to put a chunk of wood in and set it to 225 before I come over so I can confirm that it's working, not leaking smoke badly, holding relatively steady temp etc. Other than that, what are the common things on this that fail or need replacement?
