The New, Easy "Basket-Way" to Barbecue
« on: February 11, 2019, 01:53:53 PM »
Found this in local thrift store. Not a Weber but still pretty cool. Patent applied for in 1958. Will christen with my old school 22 Weber rotisserie.

Sweet score! Even though it's vintage, it looks just like the baskets you can still get from OneGrill. That old Big Boy Basket is going to be fun to use! Congrats!

I found a brand new round basket that was from the 60s or early 70s (don't remember which).
It also just has a card inside like yours & the card has a pre-printed price on it, no other packaging.  Thought that was interesting.
  I haven't used it & wound up getting a used rectangular one a bit like yours when buying a grill & rotisserie, so I might just bring the round one along to a meetup one day, just to see if I can get anything that I'd be more likely to use.  Unless, of course, I get around to trying the rectangular one & like it.
regards,
Hal

You know that's old when the paper inside says, Frankfurters or "Hot Dogs", as if that name was new. :-)
