The Original Weber: George’s 1952 Barbecue Kettle

George's Original Weber kettle

Original Weber Kettle Grill

The one and only original Weber. The one that started it all. George Stephen’s “home run”. This rare kettle is safely held at Weber Stephen headquarters in Palatine, Illinois, but arrangements were made by MartyG for a magical outing on a sunny day in May 2014. Pairing it up with George’s brick barbecue that once graced his backyard (sometimes referred to as his “foul ball”) made for a unique opportunity to re-create history. The year: 1952.
