Do you realize....
« on: June 12, 2013, 07:06:37 PM »
........ at this June meet up in Chicago, this may be one of the first ever and largest Weber kettle collections in history.  I'm not normally hokey about this kind of stuff, but it's true.  Why would anyone ever have a grill show and swap meet get together anyhow.  This could be one of the most extensive Weber collections ever assembled....Just saying....

Yeah, I was going to point out how obvious this seemed to me........

glad you spoke up on this perspective.....there may be more in actual quantity of WSM's at some of the big comps, but nothing like this for diversity & sheer cool !!!!   & KETTLES !!!!

Was thinking about who & what all people would bring ~~ different items, to ramp up the hip factor, but I see your question in the other thread......
"If you want it fancy there is BBQ spray paint at home depot for that. "
    Covered, damper-controlled cooking.....IF YOU PLEASE !!!

I don't think I have any unique grills but guess I can throw a couple in the van for road trip.

Doesn't have to be rare, just bring your favorite, or something you like or just to be part of it....It's like a car show..not necessarily rare just favorites it's about participation.....

I'll be bringing a green 22 OTS and CGA. ;) And some Black Walnut logs to see if Brian wants to use them for woodworking. Not sure if I'll have room for any more. If I did, I might consider bringing my first Weber - an 18.5 kettle. Maybe I should make a couple trips. I'm about ten minutes from the meetup. Of load up the trailer.   8)
kettles, smokers...

I submitted my family portrait to Weber's website....they never put it up. There's other peoples grills on there. I wonder now if its because I have a mini WSM in the photo?  ???

I am sure there will be a dedicated thread for this meet up. I can hardly wait.  I will be in Canada fishing with my sons. Can hardly wait to see pictures when we get back.
