So, what do people have?

Mine are mid-90s and younger.

My oldest is a redhead thumbscrew.

I've thinned my collection and I prefer the older daisy wheel models. My favorites are thumbscrew years. Just something about it that I love.

Not exactly sure, Fleetwood or offset handle SJ would be my guess.
Could someone help me figure out ages?

Patent pending is my oldest and lately I prefer One Touch OTS redheads. I haven't cooked enough with a wheeler to get comfortable and the ash management kind of sucks.

Find yourself an Internal Ash Pan and ash scoop if possible.  Complete game changer in regards to using three-wheelers.

BTW, let me buy you a double-rivet handle for that old red MBH.  Let @Zavodd44 know what you want and I'll PayPal him.  🤙🤙🤙

No leg sockets when I got it but I'm guessing it's at least 69-71? Small bowl and vent tabs

Currently it is a patent pending yellow probably late 1972.

That is very nice of you Charlie. That ol' girl is a bit beat up but she made killer ribs for us on Monday. Thanks again to you and the crew for that one. I'll get with Brian.

By the way, leave the car out and put the grills in. Insurance can find you some new wheels but they can't replace your MBH collection.
