Need some help identifying this rescue
« on: October 29, 2017, 04:06:51 PM »
So I grabbed this from the backyard of an abandoned house next to my crosswalk at the school I teach at (yes I am positive the house has been abandoned).  I really wanted it for the handles and grates but on closer inspection, I see that it looks just like a Weber with some slight differences which can be noted in the pictures.  Without seeing pictures @Bob BQ thought it might be an economy kettle that Weber made for Sears years ago.  The vents dont have anything to identify them as Weber but they are stamped with a K.  It is an interesting little caddywampus kettle.

No grate straps and plain diary wheels = Sears-by-Weber?
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

Yup, it's a Sears, made by Weber.

Here is a thread of mine . Unfortunately the pics are pooched .  I ended up selling it .

I have the pics still and could upload them if you like ?? .

Mine was also an 18" K code .
