It is polished stainless. I think it may have to be a BBQ gun. It certainly shouts BLING to me. I actually have another Delta Elite coming that I back ordered 6 months ago and forgot about. The LGS said it's here so I'm gonna buy it cuz I did order it. I just happened to buy 2 more while waiting. Can't have too many of these boys anyway IMO. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
