AZ mini meetup
« on: April 08, 2015, 05:25:41 AM »
I just happened to be in the east valley of the Phoenix area, and had the chance to meet up with a couple of grillfellas.  @jcnaz and @AZ_MIKEY were at John's house when I pulled up.  Of course, the first thing I saw when I got out of the car was a very impressive collection of kettles in the carport:





Of special note were a couple of thumbscrew kettles including a 60's 22.5, and a Wood Dale 18.5.  The very cool "stealth" SS performer was proudly representing the black-themed collection of jcnaz.


AZ_MIKEY had a special surprise for us as well:





What a beautiful kettle and such a cool color!  I remember this one when he first acquired it and it is clear that Mike has put some significant work into restoring this 60's Galley Que.  The kettle still gets cooked on as well!  I finally got to see a close up of Weber's first one touch system - great info for the Smokey Joe history page:





John and Mike are very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about Webers.  Both have great collections that give me a serious case of kettle envy.  They are great guys to hang out with and I look forward to my next visit!

^^^Thank you for providing the finishing touch for the Wood Dale. I will introduce it to the forum soon!
It was great to meet you and I look forward to seeing you again.

Careful what you wish for  ;)

 There are plenty more opportunities for me to meet up with the Arizona contingent coming up.  I am sure our paths will cross soon!

"...You guy's did cook something right?"

Sorry, I know that it is against custom, but this was a quick meetup on short notice.

The next one will be planned out better!  ;D

Ron - you will be seeing me frequently.  I took a job with a company in Chandler and am spending a good portion of my time there.  Would love to plan a get together with you and the other AZ members soon.
