'70s Groove
« on: November 27, 2016, 06:34:18 PM »
Scored this beauty at a yard sale this weekend.  Found an old post on here with one that was identified as a 1970 Structo.
All I'm sure of is that's very "Groovy"

Is that cast or sheet metal? Looks like a low-res Weber kettle.

Gummi, it's stamped Aluminum I believe.
About the same thickness as a weber.
Has a HC style internal ash pan with a single daisy wheel on the bottom.

Cool find.  Is the finish raw metal or is it painted?
Wanted: Burgundy 18"

Finish looks to be raw metal. It has a kind of faded hue to it, like a weathered aluminum stock pot, and it may have been cleaned with an acid before, @brewtownbeatdown , got me thinking about that. I'm not sure. the lighting in these pics kinda sucks.
the internal ash pan was sitting all the way to the bottom, blocking airflow. I raised it a bit with some McGuyvered spacers and did a test run last night. Held 300ish with a compact chimney full of briqs. Super lightweight, pretty darned cool.

The grate is about an inch bigger than a 22.
