Yes I was, white shirt and grey pants this time. Next time I'm going to color code to the kettle you guys always think I wear nothing lol. I'm in the country out in tn but I would get shot outside without a shirt on. They would be trying to take down an extremely pale skinned blob that I am!

Chasing_smoke, that's an awesome brownie you scored! Mid 70s? The two tone looks deeper than some of the others.

Thanks craig! I think it's mid 70's too from my research on it. Since its not lettered and has a pat number the only guess is 70-78 on it. The two tone does ride up the lid a bit higher than some I've seen. I'm very happy with it, I may have to fire it up today for dinner!

That looks like a BBK vent. Small tab top and large tab bottom. Just like the black I picked up. In that case, I think we are looking at 75/76. My gut feeling is the BBK vent continued after they started using the weber vent (still used in Europe), but I have nothing to back that up. Interesting to see the new wheels on there. That kettle is sharp!

This is the brownie that Danny C tracked down for me.  Come closer...


I cleaned the lid and bowl.  They are spotless now.  Both wheels have some problems, and the chrome on the triangle is coming off everywhere, revealing rust underneath.  But I wanted to get this guy put back together, so I reshaped the wheels, and sanded, steel wooled, and polished the triangle.  i sanded and polished the legs and put them back on.  Frankly, it looks pretty nice, and since i like keeping things original, I dont mind the "patina".  But I will probably replace the legs and triangle if I find better condition original wheels.





The handle is nice, and not really loose.  For now I am keeping it but I do forsee a Zavandle in the future.
