The Weber Story

I don't know if anyone here has read these, but they are really interesting. They are salesman reps stories from the 60s and 70s. Here's a link..

Great story. Weber sure outlasted Famous Barr.
It's the iconic symbol for the backyard. It's family/friends, food and fun. What more do you need to feel everything [is] going to be all right. As long as we can still have a BBQ in our backyard, the world seems a bit of a better place. At least for that moment. -reillyranch

Fantastic story! 
The only thing better than BBQ is more BBQ

There's a quite a few good ones on there. Another one about the guy who worked for a Monkey Wards and he got a job working for Weber because he did a great job demo'ing a riding lawn mower for George Stephen when he took the mower to his house personally to show it because he was too swamped to help George out when he was in the store looking.
