E-coded dream of a kettle - New member of my BBQ family
« on: February 09, 2018, 08:19:07 AM »
Hi friends,

today morning I was on the road again :-)
300km and 3.5h to get what I never expected to get in Germany.
A Brownie and unused for 30 years.
This E code was bought on a trade fair in late 1983 according to the guy who sold it. His father bought it once because he was fascinated of the indirect grilling and he decided to get it for is weekly roast.
Unfortunately (for him, not for the grill) his father died due to an accident a few years later and has not used the grill as much as he should. Since this time the grill was untouched in a corner of a garage for more then 30 years.
The price was very high but .... as I saw the first pics ... money? Who cares!
Something inside of me said "Get it!" "Go for it!" "Make it yours".

I did and here are some impressions:










You can still see the glue of the price tag on the lid vent - no joke !!

What a beauty!  I would pay a lot of money too if i ever come across a kettle like that.

Great pics of a beautiful brownie. I hope you’ll submit to the calendar.  The handles say it all! 

Congrats, and thanks for sharing.

Haha... I am not sure I will ever cook on a bowl which looks like this after 35 years.
Hard decision, man, hard decision :-)

Best regards,

Congrats! If this would be mine it would stay a looker, never a cooker.
