Hello from San Diego
« on: January 31, 2021, 10:10:30 AM »
Hey everyone! I have been reading the content on the Weber Kettle Club for over a year now soaking up all of the amazing information. I got sucked into Weber a couple of years ago because my wife wanted to get me a new gas grill for my birthday. When I went away to college, my dad gave me his old red Weber gasser. It was since abused through the years not receiving the care it deserved. I couldnít bring myself to replace it and decided to restore it. I started researching how to restore and stumbled upon the Club. The restore process took me a long time and I was without a way to grill. This lead to the purchase of a green Weber SSP. I learned a new way to grill and have since been addicted to charcoal grilling/smoking and collecting these beautiful kettles. My grail is a thumbscrew Caribbean. I picked one up a month and a half ago and have since been restoring it as best I can. The leg sockets have some significant rust and small holes and my OCD just canít take it, so I will continue to search for one in better condition. My newest acquisition has been an N code grey. It will be the next project after the Caribbean. Anyways I decided I should introduce myself and say thank you for all the helpful information, and the positive moral all of you have provided via your posts. It has helped tremendously to have some positive connection and a new hobby through COVID.

Cheers,

Teej
