« on: July 17, 2017, 06:54:15 AM »
Any help would be appreciated. Picking it up this weekend. No markings in photos but handles are hauntingly familiar....

Thanks

Sorry. Could have put this in grill talk.

Mods can move. No worries.

Thanks.

It's a Structo grill.

Thanks. The handle appears much like the one on my Happy Cooker. Any relation? I also noticed when googling Structo Grills that the parts etc seem to be linked to Sears and Roebuck. If there's a connection; possibly the Unarco Co. as a manufacturer, would it be conceivable to say this predates the Happy Cooker...

Still poking around.

Thanks again.

Looks to have been manufactured by the Thermos Corp.

@brewtownbeatdown can probably get you some good info on this.
BBQ:it's what's for dinner. Grails ISO: Red SJ & a Yachtsman (18" yellow).

“The real secret to the unique flavor of grilled food is not the fuel, but the drippings. As these complex chemicals combust, they coat the food with a panoply of aromatic and delicious compounds.”

@SteveMBH hit the nail on the head. It's a Structo, which was a division of Thermos Corp at that time. Having issues with Tapatalk, so I'm just including a link to one that I posted. It's #3 in the thread.

Thanks for the help. We're very much looking forward to getting her home, checking her out and using her.
