Sweet! I scored my first brownie today as well.

Nice!  A little more vintage than mine.... might have seen that one FS in NC for $100.  I’d have bought that in a second if I were standing there!

That's the one. Also came with condiment rack and tool holder. I was able to get it for $75. Colored kettles don't show up in my area often, so I was glad to secure this one.

That's grate and a good price too I'd say.  Not sure if you're into full restoration, but I tell you what - the instructions on this web page are spot on.  I never knew that you could scrape these with a flat razor blade and get all the gunk out, following up with weber grill cleaner and 000 steel wool and they darn near look new inside.  And for the legs, fine sandpaper sponge squares and 0000 steel wool will make them shine and look new again. Drill and a wire wheel will clean up the nastiest triangle too..... 

Enjoy that brownie!

@JonesBBQ glad that thing went to a member!  Thought about it but it's a bit of a haul for where I'm at.  Looking forward to seeing some clean up pics and cooks!  Enjoy it!

It’s one of the new pans from the group buy here.  There’s no way I could make the old one shine like that!
