Here is a 1970, 18.5″ Copper Mist “brownie” colored kettle. These were nicknamed “The Brave” by Weber back in the 1970s. The current owner is Craig from the WKC. This is a “patent pending” grill that features metal bowl handles, twist on ash pan, 3 daisy wheel vents on the bowl, and plastic wheels with rubber tread on the wheels. As you can see its in “like new” condition. Chances are this is one of the finest 18.5 Copper Mist’s you’ll find.
Update: This 18.5 changed ownership from G to Craig back in January ’14.
