does anyone know their trucks? What year is the truck in that photo?
It's a mid to late 90's Ford.



Agreed on the Ford. That's the Pic of the one in St. Louis...How long where the Flat Top Handles made? My EZ SS has the flat like the above.

At the Schaumberg Weber Grill, one of the murals had this shot. Looks a little colorized to me, but could have been an early red ranch or two there. The sides of these look like they may have been add-on rings of some kind - is that a rotisserie motor on the one up front?

Those were black. They added the color for the mural.

That red Budweiser ranch would compliment my red Budweiser Smokey Joe.  ;)

My ranch at one point in time was for sure red.  I believe what has happened to it, was people had sanded and painted it many times over many years.  When Stu did the original work to it he stripped off all the stuff people had done.  There are very small areas of bright red enamel.  I'll get a picture....

Brian, does the bowl have red enamel spots like the lid? 

Also, the Budweiser lid has black handles brackets.  I think if they were painting a lid, it would all be the same color.  The handles brackets should red not black.

Holy crap. I never would have guessed it had been red until seeing your picture.

Anyone got any other photos? All the old links don't seem to work.
I think I might need a bigger backyard soon...

I was offered the opportunity to buy a red Budweiser Ranch from a guy in the St Louis area. At the time we tried to find reasonable shipping rates to Seattleland and $650+ was a deal killer. But it was a Red Ranch and he got it from a guy that worked for Anheiser-Busch
