I think I have pulled off a good deal. !999 VC Encore used two seasons $500 ( Hunter green) I have inspected it and it appears to be in decent shape. I know I need to replace the griddle gasket, probably the cat or at least clean it. Very few chips in the ceramic, no warped or cracked plates inside. I plan to pick it up this coming weekend, then I will take the time to go threw it before putting in in service. I will be selling my 3 year old Resolute Acclaim. The final piece of my installation will be purchasing the 6" flue collar plate.
