Here's a different one made by the same manufacturer-

Notice the handles resemble the BBQue Kettle (Sp?)


@brewtownbeatdown has one like that

I've been looking for a Buddy L Sunburst for a bit. Same hinge & leg design as my Structo.  Find 'em real rough, or way overpriced.

Yeah, it's a fingerprint magnet though...really tempted to use a softer cupped wire wheel to make a swirled finish. I think it's called "Engine Turned"

Just like mom used to say, "Stop touching it". My Bremer's lid is the same way.

Before you change the finish, you might wanna consider a couple things: It'll either turn out awesome, or be ruined + Curves/angles will affect uniformity of the finish. If you are gonna attempt, I'd use an emery sanding disc on a low rpm 90degree die grinder. Wire is too aggressive on aluminum.

Sorry for bursting your bubble!!!  Needed to be "Debbie Downer" to save you the (possible) heartbreak.
