Here is my known oldest grill.  The Galley Que.  1960 about or so.  I do have a red 22 Wooddale that's in restoration, but not sure if its older than 1960.  Craig would know for sure!

Wow.....I've never seen that one before.  I love it.  What's the story behind the markings?

somewhere around 1975, and possibly in the best shape of any kettle i own.  i like the mojo though, it gives them personality and char-actor.  ;)

i'm fixing up my neighbor's 69-70 but he hasn't said it's mine yet.  i will wear him down so long as he stays the hell off of craigslist...
I only use kettles with lid bales.

Plastic wheels, small bowl tabs, if patent number, most likely 1972-74. Sweet red!!  :D

I'm pretty sure this is my oldest. Patent Pending Avocado. My son bought it for me for Fathers Day 2013. It looks a lot better now that it's all cleaned up and restored.

I've got Webers. 10 - WSMs, 5 - 22.5" kettles, 2 - 18.5" kettle, 2 - SJS, 2 - SJP, 4 - WGA, 1 vintage Coolie Pan
