Patent pending Avocado 🥑
« on: May 05, 2018, 02:10:15 PM »
I was heading to pick up a Craigslist 73-75 18.5 red kettle.   As I’m loading it up, he says he has “other” kettles.  I ask if I can look and he shows me his patent pending avocado in decent shape.  I make an offer on the spot, and he accepts.  My lucky day!   Just got it home.  Needs some love but nothing our club has not taught me to do.  RRR.

Wow, that's an outstanding haul.
It's the iconic symbol for the backyard. It's family/friends, food and fun. What more do you need to feel everything [is] going to be all right. As long as we can still have a BBQ in our backyard, the world seems a bit of a better place. At least for that moment. -reillyranch
