Hey Troy, I figured as much!  Let me know if you want me to help compile any other similar pages. 

If I think of other good reference material that might be useful, I'll post it and you can add it as a main page or ignore it.  :)

I love having this here.  Very easy for me to find.  We should take it back older that this too, try to figure out the BAR-B-QUE KETTLES.  I have a bunch of old grills I can take pictures of the vents, as well as other people here.  Maybe we should try to get a picture of every vent wheel we can.  The old ones right through the date codes.  Might be cool.  I'll take pictures tonight.

 Brian, that is EXACTLY what I wanted to do.  (I can't help in this regard of the older vents as I have no specimens, but can of course help compile and fill in gaps.)

Thanks for this.  Just found out my Weber is 10 years old.

Okay here's a start.  I'll get these pictures to troy so maybe we can have these on the main site as a permanent record.  Just went out in the backyard and here's what I got in chronological order....

pre-patent pending so it is between 1963 and 1967?

Everyone go look and see what holes you can fill, we need a picture of every year.  I even want a Wood Dale wheel.  I saw a metal handle around here a few months back.  .  I might have an 85' but I took it off my 26".  I kept the wheel somewhere,  I' gotta go look.
