Hello from the U.P of Michigan!
« on: April 23, 2020, 07:31:21 AM »
Hey all,

   I've been grilling on Weber Kettles for about 15 years now. I have two Weber original kettles, one 2004 that I use for grilling only and my main which is a 2008 that I use for grilling/smoking, and one smokey Joe. I found this site through some YouTube BBQ'ers that recommended it while surfing through smoking videos. Once I discovered there was a whole community dedicated to collecting and restoring Weber Kettles, I remembered a family member had an old kettle sitting outside their house for years and they no longer used it. So I called them up and asked them if they still had it and if I could come get it. Using the age guide on here, I was able to determine it is a 1975 model and overall, in pretty decent shape for being 45 years old and left outside. I'll be looking to restore it as best I can without modifying it. I'll make a separate post for some advice on that though.

Here she is!



Regards

Troy
