Nice job getting your Dad's kettle back on it's legs.  Great example of the WKC motto -  Rescue, Restore, Respect.

Awesome RRR Steve Austin would be proud
Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill

Great job on the RRR!
I’d be concerned about the galvanized steel junction box cover in my kettle.

AZ2FL thanks for the heads up about the zinc plated j box covers. It never crossed my mind, I know it can be nasty when welding. I did some research and looks like it does not give off fumes until 390F. I built a nice hot fire in another kettle and checked temp where legs attach and it was never more than 180F.  Still I think it best to either strip zinc off and paint w high temp paint or use another piece of painted steel.  Anyone else have thoughts on this?
