Things are still kinda slow here at WKC with the cold winter going on but the forums heated up quite a bit this weekend. An original Weber Westerner- a 1960’s brown and white 26.75″ Weber kettle with two longhorn bull heads printed on the bowl showed up on eBay this Staruday! For many Weber lovers, this is the ultimate kettle grail due to it’s size and unique porcelain pattern. It’s a prime specimen in good shape and even includes what looks like an original Weber 26.75″ rotisserie kit and period correct cover. This is also the only 26.75″ roti kit we’ve ever seen.
This is the only Westerner that has been on sale/auction since Weber enthusiasts have started to congregate online at WKC and other bbq forums. Bidding is past $1000 already with over 5 days to go. If you want to jump in and guess how much it goes for, place your bets in the Westerner speculation thread. The owner has been nice enough to share additional pictures and the kettle’s story with us in the Trading Post. Check out the official eBay listing too. Since the kettle was in California or storage for most of it’s life, the porcelain and welds are in good shape. The only minor flaw with this kettle is that the wheels aren’t original.
