Cafe Globe
« on: May 19, 2017, 02:31:57 PM »
Just picked a freebie Cafe Globe gas kettle that was listed on CL. Literally a 45 second drive from my job. The burner is warped, which is why the guy was getting rid of it. I see a lot of possibilities.....

Can't beat FREE.  Is that a metal table?

SS. Legs are SS but the cart is plastic. Doesn't feel too sturdy, but the guy says he had it for about 15 years. Pretty cool shelving system. I'll get more pics posted later.

That's too bad. My wheels started turning right away. If it woulda been, that design would make an awesome prep table.  Coulda mounted some angle iron under handle opening to slide a rectangular garbage can into.

22" bowl... maybe WSM cart. I'm getting a Performer Platinum soon. Maybe the table will fit that.

I picked up a Sunbeam several years ago that shares alot of design features with yours Bob. The tops are green porcelain like the lid, the burner is super heavy duty with a shelf under the kettle that holds a grease bucket and junk. After making a new heat diffuser plate and replacing the hose & reg it worked great, both times I used it.

Seems like a fairly well built cart, I'v dragged it in & out of the brush, that grew up around it, a couple times and its still sturdy. It was in the line up for a little while but after a couple days I planned on having a guest and hauled it into the brush so they couldn't see it. I used it to make some bone meal, sterilize sea-weed & chicken shit and put it back in the brush. It cleans up quick & easy too, I could be flippin burgers in 10 min.



This ones almost easy to find around here, but I'v never seen one like yours.

No idea how the burner on this one got warped... it is definitely a beast. I've got a few other projects going right now, then I'll see if I can get this one going. If not, i'll see about mounting a Weber on it.
