Burgundy. ..Plum...Idk
« on: March 08, 2017, 01:26:22 PM »
Picked this up today...cleaned a little, thinking it was burgundy, but the more I look, them more I wanna say Plum
EI code Mt


It's rough, but it'll make a decent cooker either way.
The pictures don't show the purpleish hue I see.

Looks exactly like the EO Burgundy MT I recently grabbed. Awesome find!!!  Does look like Plum in fluorescent light.

Yeah those don't come up often. The color I believe IS burgundy. They offered them in 1997 but it sure about before or after. Jeff K has one too. I love this color MT.
Every kettle has a story.

Not to hijack the thread but this makes me wonder if my MT is red or Burgundy. It's a P code, what colors were offered in '93?

Nice score! Burgundy color is lot different than Red or Red mist MT.

This pic is  from The Weber Master Touch History.  Red on the left and the burgundy between blue and green.

I thought burgundy and plum were the same, plum being a nickname like brownie for copper mist or lime for, well, lime.

No, there is a distinct difference:

@Jeff's grills as I don't know what we decided the names of them are.

Brick Red and Crimson are easier to differentiate in pictures.

@pbe gummi bear;  Help !!!

From our Performer History pages; "... the SS performer had an integrated, removable  thermometer located in the lid handle.  Colors offered in Gen 1 include Black, Red, Red Mist, Dark Green, Dark Blue, Plum, and Grey.  "


From our Master Touch History pages;  "In addition to green, blue, and black, the Master Touch was also offered in red, red mist, copper mist, grey and burgundy. The model was only offered in the 22.5 size. Weber produced the Gen 1 Master Touch in the US from 1992 until 1999, at which time both the BAR-B-KETTLE and the Master Touch were discontinued."

Uh, I'm not the best person to ask for this because I never had the patience to track the nuances of when these colors where available when and for what model. It's the source of much debate! I definitely have seen a Plum SS performer and a burgundy Master Touch but I don't recall seeing the vice versa. Plum IS available for regular OT 18's and 22's. I believe the grill in the first post is a burgundy/maroon and NOT the plum/purple/aubergine/eggplant color.

@pbe gummi bear  I hear you.  I now believe that either our documentation needs a review or Weber played fast and loose with their nomenclature.  My SSP is called plum in our doc's, but it looks like the light burgundy of the later MT.  Of course, the fruit plum comes in both burgundy and purple based on variety :) .  In any case, that's all of the conjecture I can handle this late at night.
