Red Ranch kettle Question
« on: February 21, 2013, 08:44:51 PM »
I heard that George Stephens only made two red ranch kettles.  I know there is an old newpaper article with a guy that uses a red ranch for catering, and Brian has one that looks red.  There was one that had a Budweiser logo, but it was only a red lid. 

What can your collective memories recall about the elusive red ranch kettle?

I believe Brians was an original red. I think weber made a few. Why wouldn't they? It was obviously Georges favorite kettle color.

Interesting then that the caterer's appears to have wood handles but Brians does not.  (I understand they could be aftermarket - after all the guys does not have wheels either.

I wish I did.  I thought it was odd that only the lid was red, and the bowl was still black.  I emailed that seller about that grill twice, but never got a response.

It's a mid to late 90's Ford.

Looks like early to mid 90 on the ford, unless it is f250 or 350, they kept the style a year or so longer.
