Dang, I had a fine example of a Red Mist that I passed on. Memory fails and I don't remember the date code.

Here's a question I've always wondered.  Why did Weber even makes fades?   We see them on grills as early as the late 50s- early 60's on some Wooddale Chestnut Coppertons, Westerners, and "White Whales".  Then through the years with Avacados, Brownies, then into the reds. 

Why, why, why???  :)

Here's my 18" L (1989) and my SS Performer N (1991). Unfortunately, neither have a fade... but they're still beauties!





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).

Because they could? And it looks cool? :)

A Chestnut Copperton is on the bucket list... Those are either more "pepperoni" or "Canadian bacon" depending on the amount of misting they did..

Not much range in my sample but might help confirm all fades for 99?...

Not a two tone, although it may look as such. This is a 1995 red master touch.
P code on this one


Tell me boy, what is the riddle of steel?
