Anybody recognize model number 441970 18 ots It seems like it may be a logo?
Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill

Usually If you have never seen it before it's most likely a logo of some sort. If it's a good deal and it's bnib grab it and hold onto it to re sell next season

441971 is a black Sam Adams 18 ots if that helps at all. 
Its amazing how quickly one weber kettle turns into more than a dozen!  Always open to grabbing something interesting so let me know what you've got!

I wish we had a database, just like we have one for the SJs.  I find that really interesting

I was amazed to find the list of smokey joes since I never could find anything for kettles in general.   This past week alone I could've used a nice comprehensive list of model numbers!

I'm also always curious to know when Weber changed their packaging.  I often see grills in boxes (not necessarily new but still with a box) which are marked with the old "bar b kettle" as opposed to "original premium kettle" or whatever it is they say currently.  Anyone know when they changed that aspect of it all?

I'm trying, but it's hard because it seems logos are often won or if you spend a certain amount somewhere you get one for free. I got my kraft bnib before I knew about all of this I'm so mad at myself for ditching the box and everything. But I have a few numbers saved in my phone. 441975 is a Budweiser 18. So I'm gonna go on a limb and say it's a beer one. Would be awesome if it was a bud light carne asada

I think thats why a nice list would help.  When people "win" one of these logo grills they often never wanted it and eventually sell it.  Then they dont really know what they even have!  I got screwed by that recently.  Saw a BNIB kettle pop up on craigslist and it had a unique number.  I found one old post on this site referencing it (it was 1248998) and said it could be a blue sam adams.  I'm a huge Sam Adams fan so I was hopeful it might be and I started another thread here asking for info.  General consensus (you guys are all awesome by the way!) was that at the very least it was something other than a standard black 18" kettle.  But before I got any responses I had the audacity to ask the seller if it might be a blue sam adams grill.  She got all pissy with me and said it was obviously a regular black kettle just like the picture on the box. So I lost out on it as she then refused to respond to me.   Fast forward a week, and the same exact grill shows up on Ebay (I actually just wont the auction) and there is a slightly better picture of the box with that model number....and underneath it clearly said "18" orig kettle dk blue sam adams".

Cliff's notes:  Sometimes people are idiots and cant read fine print; so a nice comprehensive list of model numbers might help those of us with weberitis!

Thats the ebay auction I won @GrillGuyMosier .  Its 1248998.  The others were talking about a 1248999 potentially being the bud light carne asada.
