You guys made history today. I am really proud to be a WKC member along with such a great group of guys. I just wish I could have come and gotten to know everyone better. I really hope to visit Chicago in the near future. Hats off to you all! :D

Awesome.

Looks like a great time at a great setting. I participated vicariously by cleaning my new-to-me "B" kettle. It looks great!

It's unbelievable to see some of the grills y'all have. I thought I had some nice ones.

Nothing, NOTHING compared to what y'all have.

I am not worthy!
I've got Webers. 10 - WSMs, 5 - 22.5" kettles, 2 - 18.5" kettle, 2 - SJS, 2 - SJP, 4 - WGA, 1 vintage Coolie Pan

Wow, what a day.  It was great to meet everyone, observe some classic webers up close, and eat some great food.  A special thanks to Jeff and Jean for hosting and Marty/Weber for the cool swag bag.  Looking forward to the next one.....

I had an awesome time today even though I had to bounce early. Thanks for hosting us, Jeff and Jean!
Kudos to those who drove hours to get to the meet! It was def worth it.

There was a ladder involved for some picture taking. The kettles are in semi random arrangement since we were just mostly hanging out. Taking pics of so many kettles was fun and interesting. There are also group pics, food pr0n, rare weber kettle pics, stacks of Brian's Inventory, weber paraphernalia, and more general awesomeness all afternoon. I will try to work on the pics tomorrow morning. I have to run to the airport in 2 hours lol.

Regarding the one in between the two yellows:  is it black?  It looks dark brown.   ???
That's my '74 Kettle. The brown color is from a fine patina of rust (that is too stubborn to come off.) It was a lot lighter until I sprayed it with Pam to retard further rusting.

Hank, that was a beautiful kettle with a great story. I appreciated you bringing it out to share with us!
