Yup Got it. It's at home and I'm on my way back to the airport. It's an ER - 1996. Perfect condition. I'm done - done I tell you! (where have we heard that before?)

No cleanup whatsoever yet, but here it is. Won't take long to bring it back to near mint. Oh, and the Koa handles are going on this one Brian! Like the 22.5, seems like this used once and put back in the garage, where it sat for 17 years.
 


And here's the new family - all of them showing up magically like they were meant to be together all along. Feels like I'm living in Weberville USA now! No room for a Ranch, but then again...



More and better pics down the road. I'll be adding this chapter to the 22.5 story, and will post on the main page soon.

If they find a way to put any more liquid in meat charcoal grilling will be an underwater sport.

You can add that Black Sears model on Ebay to your collection while back in Philly.

WOW!  :o , Lets see a '79 black, a '76-77, black, a '96'er 26"er................all in a week!?  What kind of kettle karma are you taking and can I get a hit on that!?  :D
I really like the old flat top lid designs on the 26"ers. It's funny what we're all doing here, we've got guys here that are discovering the colored kettles and their appeal and those of us that are finding an appreciation for the black ones. Thats a nice family you got there, Marty!

Congrats, Marty!  Unbelievable.  And it couldn't happen to a nicer guy.  Can't wait to hear the rest of the story.

Wow! That was quick. I must be snoozin'.

Congrats to Marty - great looking grill! (I've got one like it so I don't really need another.  ;) )

I just checked my CL app and see that I missed some kind of blue Weber with side table for $50. Blue Platinum? blue Performer? I wonder if Marty got that one too.  :o
kettles, smokers...

Not me, I'm on a CL sabbatical until I get these two cleaned up. Gotta plan a cross-country road trip so I can get 'em to a place I can use 'em - likely the week before the 4th of July. Trouble is, those redheads of mine are starting to feel like mis-fits. Gotta find a black SS Performer now to complete the family. My Mom has an old SJ that I might swipe next time I'm up in Wisconsin. And Mike, I wrote Chapter 2 last night. I'll try to get it on the front page next weekend.
