An appeal to Weber
« on: May 13, 2014, 10:51:08 AM »
Dear Weber Stephan Products,

First, let me thank you for making wonderful products that allow me to put food on the table with great enjoyment.  Weber is, and will always be a key part of get-togethers with family and friends. 

I have a request.  In honor of your great heritage as an American company and our collective great heritage as a country, please consider offering this kettle to your customers in the U.S.  I can think of nothing better that burgers, dogs, and steaks coming off this grill every 4th of July, Veterans day, and Memorial day.  I would be proud to have one in my back yard, and I know a few friends that feel the same way.



Respectfully,

Winz

Winz, Thanks for asking Weber Stephan Products to produce a red/white and blue kettle. I would like to have one also!

I'd be on board for at least one star spangled kettle.  Would be even better if they made it 26.

Make it as a Master-touch and I would pay $250 and I never buy new.

P.S. Please also utilize handles made of wood. A thermometer on the dome would be nice. I also like cast iron, seasoned steel or stainless steel cooking grates--hinged and with the Gourmet inserts if you please.
It's the iconic symbol for the backyard. It's family/friends, food and fun. What more do you need to feel everything [is] going to be all right. As long as we can still have a BBQ in our backyard, the world seems a bit of a better place. At least for that moment. -reillyranch

It's a great idea and would be easier to implement if only Weber could claim 100% Made in USA these days.

In my letter to Weber, paraphrased in the OP, and mailed a couple of days ago, I did not place additional requirements on the product (e.g. M/T, wood handles, etc).  My thought was to make the request simple and let Weber decide what model features would give them the highest return and chance for success.  Besides, many of us here would want to customize whatever is produced anyway.

I just really want a stars and stripes kettle - it is spectacular!
