WKC auction - Pat Pending Avocado. starting March 15th
« on: March 01, 2017, 06:13:17 AM »
The Weber kettle club has had a kettle donated to the club to fund special projects for 2017.

The kettle is a Pat Pending Avocado

The kettle is in good shape considering that it is 48 years old.  Please review pics, it is in good condition but a little more RRR would really make this sparkle.

This kettle will fund the cost of making handles that are for the 5th anniversary of the founding of the WKC.

These handles cannot be purchased but will be given away at special events through out the year so stay tuned.

The winner of the auction will get one of these special handles once they are in production.  *Please note, the 5th anniversary handle will not fit on this particular grill.

This will be an ebay auction starting on March 15th.  Below are pics of the grill.



























I am not a collector, but I do have a small collection.

That's a nice looking '70-'72 Cado. It will make for a nice Cooker while going for a good cause.
Every kettle has a story.

For us new guys, what's the best guess on a fair-for-all price on this? I understand there are variables and ultimately it's worth whatever someone will pay. But what's your best ballpark guess? Thanks.

Wow. I would go, say...$200 without even seeing it in person. That isn't something you are going to pull up all the time on Craigslist. Hey! - see how easy that is when you aren't bidding for reals?
