I just spent the last half hour perving on that Kettle....and I still canít get over itís beauty
Brilliant job on getting her back up and running. Have you got grates for it yet?
I'm only 2 or 3 kettles away from being that creepy guy down the street with all the Webers

I bought my first Wood Dale several years ago from a retired fellow by the name of Don. Don was an accountant and one of his clients in the 1950s and early 1960s was Weber Brothers Metal Works. Don spent quite a bit of time at the facility.

Don told me in the early years of kettle producing there was a lot of experimenting (porcelain coated legs, ash pans,  utility pans, triangles, unique custom lids and bowls, multi color combos to the "splatter grills").  At the time this info was passed to me, many people discounted it as a "foggy memory". However, over the past few years everything he told me has been proven true.

You mentioned you only bought a lid and a bowl. I do know that Weber made a very limited number of "splatter grill" Travelers. I think its at least a 75% chance this was originally THE ELUSIVE CUSTOM
TRAVELER...

BBQ:it's what's for dinner. Grails ISO: Red SJ & a Yachtsman (18" yellow). Not a grail, but also looking for a Brave (18" brownie).

... I'm glad you choose that color.

He had a CHOICE?
It's the iconic symbol for the backyard. It's family/friends, food and fun. What more do you need to feel everything [is] going to be all right. As long as we can still have a BBQ in our backyard, the world seems a bit of a better place. At least for that moment. -reillyranch

That was an attempt at humor.  Obviously, I'm not very adept at it.
