New from Big Island Hawaii
« on: April 27, 2021, 03:10:11 AM »
Aloha! My real name is Levi, I am 27, married, no kids, love to grill/smoke until as of late with a wood chip vertical smoker and propane 5 burner grill, and suitcase size mini propane grill (for the beach)...I recently was going to scrap an old falling apart dirty charcoal grill someone left on a property I purchased and my friend (Weber enthusiast) over the phone informed me this was a 1979 18.5” redhead..apparently 30,000 series, so I am cleaning it up and learning how versatile and underrated these babies are, and then come to find out theres nothing short of an occult following of these guys which I think is great 8)
    Looking forward to talking to everyone and hopefully learning a whole lot about weber kettle grills and all their history and versatility.

Update*
Thanks to Crowderjd I now have the app and can post some photos of the condition I found her in.

Thanks to @Red_5_Wrangler I got all the parts I was lacking. Wheel push caps, ash pan, and the third leg cap.
Thanks again bro

Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill

Welcome to the forum. It’s a great place to learn a lot and share pictures and stories. Send pictures of the redhead when you can.

That's a sweet grill!  Looks to be in great shape especially once you get the triangle on.

Welcome from Santa Clarita, CA. Nice BBQ and looks to be in really good condition. Shouldn’t take much work to clean it up.  Inside the lid there’s a hook so you can hang it off the bottom bowl to keep it off the ground.
