Here is the Wooddale that I got from @Dale Benson   and wound up passing on to @Winz.

So I am a former member of the mob.
And now all of my pictures are sideways...

I love this little grill, and the fact that @Dale Benson gifted it to @jcnaz who subsequently gifted it to me makes it even more special.  When I was living in NORCAL, I sent JC the hooks for him to rebuild the ash pan, not knowing that I would eventually move 10 miles away from him and end up with the 49er in my hands!


Heres is what Dale bought:



He cleaned it up, JC fixed the ash pan, and this is what I received as a gift from JC:





For the record, it cooks a mean steak:

I can't tell what makes a wood dale a wood dale and I couldn't figure it out by researching this site either.  How do you identify a wood dale?

The vent will be stamped with the WOOD DALE, ILL. city name. There MAY have been some early non-stamped vents for kettles made in Wood Dale after the move from Chicago, but it's hard to verify.



The vent-code cheat-sheet is a work in progress, but this version is close to final. Handy to have a copy in the glovebox for those sudden curb-alert finds.



For those wondering, the very first tabs were welded onto the vent as a separate piece. After that, the tab was stamped out with the vent itself. Note the shape of the vent tab also changes, and I need to update the chart to reflect the reality that WOOD DALE vents are square - at least some are. @Craig would know for sure what years went with what tab style, but we keep learning new stuff as some of the old kettles resurface.
