Cleaned her up, new legs, wheels, grates, ash catcher, and wood handle

Nice 18"  I have a Pat number 18, so this is even cooler.
What are the odds you still have the original legs/wheels/ash pan/etc...
I've always had gas...  And now a bunch of kettles because of this place.  Thanks!

I was driving in Chattanooga today, and saw a billboard for Coca-Cola.  It said something about 'summer', and featured a redhead Weber kettle.

Truly, an iconic image.

Didn't have an ash catcher when I bought it.  Unfortunately I tossed the wheels and legs.

Idahawks new Red MT gives the thread a bump.  Here she is awaiting her little trip up north. I have given her a little cleanup / minor tuneup before she heads to Idaho.  I just can't let be humiliated by all of the others who are cleaned, de-greased and polished.





49 replys and counting:  Red is the new Red !!!!   ;D

Yes it is. It says "Schmidts" was made for Landmark Brewery for their grand opening. No longer in business. It is just odd, so it fits into the collection.

I have a Redhead MT (EZ) will have to get some pics of her to post here. The front handle is bent at an angle, not sure if it can be bent back easily. I will hunt through the restoration threads to see if anyone else has tried the same.

Ken a rubber mallet will do wonders on it. Just a few taps and it will straighten out.

So you're saying that being straight is like 'their home'?
