Hello from Gainesville Florida
« on: April 03, 2020, 07:33:32 AM »
Hello,
I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona (Bear Down) and moved to Gainesville, Florida in 2009.

I’ve been cooking and smoking on Weber Kettles since 1986.

Several months ago, the wife wanted to buy gas grill. Having never used a gas grill or owned one. I search the internet and found WKC. Long story short I found a 2004 Genesis silver two burner grill for $25 on CL, it was a four-hour round trip. Now the wife has a like new gas grill, she’s a happy griller.

Current Weber collection:
22” Black 1978 (excellent condition)
22” Black Uline (less than a year old)
18” Black (18 months old)
22” Blue “C” (curb find, I used it for many years as my daily grill. It’s now a rehab project)
22” Black “DE” (currently a fire pit on 6” legs)
22” Black “DA” (project or parts kettle)
22” Red “C” (I purchased this Red Kettle a few weeks ago, it’s in great shape for a “C”
14” Smokey Joe black
14” Smokey Joe  black (nib)
18” WSM “DA”
22” WSM “AA”

Cheers,
Robert

Hello and welcome.  Nice looking family.  I spent many unproductive years in Gainesville!

Hard to tell from photos but the blue C code is pretty rare if it has double rivet bowl handles.

Were the unproductive years spent at UF ?

Blue C bowl handles are a single screw and lid is double rivet.

I see you recently moved from Jax to Ashville, NC, wow you have a nice collection of weber kettles.

I picked up the black '78 Wednesday morning.  I hadn't noticed she was off 120 degrees while cleaning the grill today. LOL
