Unfortunately, it's not all that exciting. We go "home" to WV every year for deer season / Thanksgiving. We got there Saturday and my wife was telling her mom about my recently diagnosed "Weberitis". Mom in law said to my wife "remember that grill you talked me into buying at an auction a few years ago?... it's up in the top of the barn still. We never did use it.  It's a replica of some type... it might be Weber."

Y'all wouldn't even believe what she paid for it. The receipt from the auction was in the grill.

Might be worth contacting Weber and seeing if anyone there can say how it's made.

Because if it's actually porcelain enameled paint, cook on it!

I sent an email w pics to Weber. Haven't heard back yet. I'll let y'all know what they say if I do.

If they offer you the new red for it tell them you’ll take one when they fix all the production issues.

Danger! Danger! Red Flag!

Can a spouse who has firsthand knowledge of such an artifact but keeps it from her spouse --- for years! --- be trusted?

I'd be surprised if Weber wants it, seeing as how they have it in all of their restaurants, and at their HQ. I guarantee there are a boatload of WKC Grillfellas who would love a shot at it, though.
BBQ:it's what's for dinner. Grails ISO: Red SJ & a Yachtsman (18" yellow).
