In researching for the Smokey Joe History page, a WKC member supplied us with these photos. This is the earliest Weber Smokey Joe we have been able to document to date. Clearly visible are the trademark metal handle attached directly to the vent and the early tripod leg configuration. An amazing example of one of Weber’s kettles from the 1950’s!

That’s actually a 1960’s model. The fifties had a Chef’s Hat decal on the lid. I did the research when I owned the one pictured above.
Thanks Duke. The Smokey Joe history page has been updated accordingly.
