I originally passed on my grandparents avacado cuz the leg sockets were broken. Helped throw away the metal wheels, legs and sockets. After that i found this place and its pretty much been my biggest kettle regret since

I've mentioned this several times in other threads, so sorry for those who've seen it.

A couple years before joining the WKC, I was at a flea market & saw a Weber grill where someone broke/lost the triangular grill attached to the bottoms of the legs and rigged it with some sort of  homemade triangular pan.  I liked Webers since I was a kid, but I didn't even bother go close enough to take a closer look.  If I had, I might have noticed that the pan was not homemade and way too coincidentally the right size to have been rigged.  Pretty certain it would have been dirt cheap too.

I got a deal on blue nitrile gloves, so I bought a BOX (case) for working on the lawnmower. snowblower, etc.  Also for grilling to keep the raw food germs off your hands so you can go back into the house without leaving salmonella on the doorknob. 

I often forget to use them until I already have salmonella, dirt, gas or grease on my hands.

Hal

Unlike everyone else, I don't like rare meet.  Medium to medium well for me.

Wow I also had a similar incident about 3 years ago before I was a member here.  I stopped at a garage sale and spotted a weber kettle for sale the sign taped on it said 60.00.  The first thing I noticed was it was greenish colored... Id never seen a green weber before.  The next thing I noticed was it had metal handles on it including the one on the lid.  the last thing I noticed was it had a weird solid metal triangle pan that I thought someone must have fabricated  in their backyard.  Needless to say I didn't buy it because I thought to myself... man that seems like a lot for an old bbq!  Oh well what can I say.  That was before I was infected with the Weber virus.

I was at a garage sale summer before last & the old immigrant (perhaps Polish) who was having it had a grill outside with a very nice VINTAGE flower design Weber grill cover where the cover was in superb condition.  It was away from the stuff he had for sale, so I just asked if he had a bbq grill for sale.  He said no.


I know what street is it on, but don't recall exactly which house.  I try driving by it often during garage sale season, hoping for another shot.  This time, I'll comment on the cover and say how my wife likes flowers, ask if he minds if I look at it.  Maybe offer to buy a new one for him as a trade.  Anything to get a peek at what is underneath it.  I think he moved it outside the garage, just to get it out of the way.

Hal

Nice!  Man if the vintage cover looked that good than you know the kettle thats under there must be just as nice.

I have cooked on a kitchen cooktop twice this month, and that is a three year high. Only on long rainy days that I just wanted to get things done and over with. (Shrimp scampi and Breakfast for dinner for those meals.)

My oven is full storing cast iron and graniteware that I use on the kettles. I haven't used my oven for a long time.

One of my habits upon visiting Youtube is to scroll to the bottom of my subscriptions to check if there is a WKC video. I curse the days when there is no WKC video.

I usually don't check Online Finds, or Member Sales & Trades. Sorry about that, but I'm happy with other's fellas getting the kettles.


I should toughen the hell up and get back to grillfella business.

- not taking in anymore kettles unless it is SJ I do not have( Grey or Ivory non taco) or 18" Lime mbh.

- added bunch more kettles into cooking rotation last year, but have a lot more new and never cooked lookers that I want to cook on this year and maybe into next year.

- have done some cool kettle projects and may have few more if I can find time to do them.

- love all Weber kettles, but consider myself a Master Touch, Performer, and non-Weber kettle person.  :D
