Bad enough I had to miss this meetup. Now I have to wait for pics, stories, food shots, door prize winners, and who know what else! Looks like the weather was good, but I'm sure it would have been great rain or shine.

We need a people group shot ASAP!

Lets start by saying, the weather was 100% amazing.  Sunny and in the 80's  I want to thank Brian and his wife Jenny for hosting an awesome event.  What a perfect house and yard to host such an event.  While the turnout was lighter than expected due to having to reschedule this event, it certainly didn't lack for fun and amazing food and meeting some great new people, and having somewhat of a Weber celebrity being able to attend.  Kevin Kolman...Weber's own Grillmaster.

Well....first things first.  Once I got there, I had to unload a few of my grills I brought.  I wish I had more room to bring more.




The newfound and unused grill found 3 days ago...just in time to show off!

Now that's a meetup! Thanks for the pics Jeff. Sounds like an awesome day all around. Still waiting for Brian's double-trouble II creation. Is it done yet?

And introducing the newest grill to my collection.  I found it a couple days ago.  Its never been used.  I can't say I've even seen a brown Go Anywhere before.




Here is Mesa Azul...getting ready for a long day!






The famous, and WELL traveled Custom!



Even more Wooddales!

I think the wheels on the brownie 26 are my favorite plastic style.

And that Seville, love that!

And what was the oldest kettle to visit the party...member Einrej (Ernie) traveled down from Milwaukee with his wife Betty, and cute puppy Judy!  Thanks for coming down and meeting us.  What an awesome grill!  Notice one vent in the bowl!  No marking on the top damper.  No exact age for this kettle, but most like mid 50's...shortly after the original '52 Bouy!







Here's the 26 red sporting a rotisserie!



The Brothers Seville came together too!
