Quick question, what year did Weber introduce the curved back leg kettles and also stop production of them.

O itís a 18Ē chocolate brown Bar-B-kettle exactly the same as your black one (speck wise).

Can you see if it has the one touch cleaning system? Then it is probably an E code. The c code has 3 daisywheels.

No itís definitely a Bar-B-kettle, the 3 temperature vents on the bottom of the bowl, I suppose itís a silver.

Yes, the black 18Ē and the green 22Ē are c-code. De green one has a double rivet top handle and the one the only single screw bowl handles. The black 18Ē has 3 single screw the one the only handles
