I'm actually thinking about getting this:

https://charlotte.craigslist.org/app/5386954082.html

Is this a good find?  Would it fit in a new performer deluxe table?  I think it'd be cool to have a redhead in a performer.

Dude you HAVE to get that. That's a sweet redhead for $25 bucks.

You have 3 options for getting into the performer frame.
- let it sit on the handles
- make some brackets like this
- cut the old brackets off a donor performer bowl

Roger that!  I'm waiting to hear back from him.  He's only a half hour from me so I'm all over it if he responds ;)

Here is another redhead from offerupnow in your general area.  I little more expensive but it appears to have a fade and looks to be in better shape. 

OK I admit it, I have no idea what a fade is.  What is it?

When a color isn't quite the same throughout the grill.  Usually gets darker around the lip of the lid.  Some kettle have a fade you can see all of the time, but some just fade or change shade when they are hot.  My 96 SS Performer for example has an even tone of red that gets much darker when its hot.

Ah I see now what you're talking about.  So this fade is a good thing?  Why?

They are just harder to find.  I'm really not even sure what causes a kettle that always has a fade.  It think the ones that fade when hot are due to minerals or elements in the paints that weber used.  I believe there was something in the red paint that is either really expensive, hard to find, or illegal now which is why there haven't been red kettles for a while.  I might be totally wrong about the lack of recent kettles in red, but I think I read it somewhere on here and if I am remembering correctly it was @Troy that mentioned it.

You can add a gas assist to a bowl if you are handing with a dremel and drill. I've added them before and did a write up on it. Red kettle would look sweet on your SNS cooks.  :)

Damn! I would buy both red kettles!  Seems like most of the kettles on AZ Craigslist are green or black.

And if there are reds, they're kinda pricey...

If you consider the redheads collectible, though, isn't a little extra money worth it?  Or is it all part of the hunt?  The goal is to find a collectible kettle that someone is selling cheap because they don't know what they have: ;)
