Greetings from a Kettle in Canada!
« on: October 11, 2020, 09:39:43 AM »
Hi All,

   Just a quick hello and intro. I have a Weber Kettle from I'm guessing the 70's/early 80s (Not sure exactly when - I need to look up the age guide) that my grandfather purchased new at the Army and Navy store in New Westminster, B.C. Canada. Since then, it's been used at least 4 times a year for family events, and when Grandpa passed away in 2010 I took the Weber and have continued using it. It's built like a tank, and has always been cleaned after use and stored inside. This may sound funny, but it's a family heirloom at this point. Anyways, just wanted to say hi. Happy grilling!

Jay

Thank you! Currently cooking the Thanksgiving turkey in it :)

(Looks like Grandpa bought it in 1978...)

Thank you all for the warm welcome! Looking forward to browsing the forum. The BBQ is a year older than me, but we both have the same round profile... :)
