The Galley Que was around as late as 1980?  Wow.  If I find one, I'm going to get a sailboat for it.

^Nice!  I've seen the blue type before but I've never seen the type that looks like an old SJ with a galley que mount.  Very, very nice.  I'm surprised that they don't show up more often.

Thanks for sharing this! Looks like for 1981 (CBG-81)  the 26"ers were only available in black. I also noticed that it subtly explains the rolled edge ash pans as "sturdier than ever" and the "hold down clips" so "it won't blow away" now that accounts for why the rolled edge ones came with clips. I had a non clipped straight edge twist pan turn up and blow off one of my kettles during a windstorm this fall. Makes sense.

Thanks for posting this Neo...

It's AMAZING to me how many really NEAT kettles and accessories were available as last as 1981.

Like a Seville....    :o
Interested in ANY offset handle SJs you may have.

Very Nice! Thanks for sharing it. I wish there was a section on this site where all the old catalogs such as this could be displayed and seen.
Chinese made Weber Genesis II now on sale at Dollar General stores.
