Just thought I'd share a few pics of a few of my Vintage pre-date stamped Weber kettles.

22", 26.75" Bar-B-Q-Kettles and a Smokey Joe.

I modified the 26.75 with a Summit grill thermometer and bezel in the lid.

I love cooking indirect on this, the grate is lower than the new OTG's, but the lid fits perfectly on my 85 gallon Drum Smoker!

I attached lengths of expanded metal to a pair of charcoal rails and can get quite a bit of fuel without reloading.

Very nice. Are those Mojo Bricks in Pic #4? I bought a bunch of them for the store because the guy said they were easy to break a piece off of, but found out that wasn't the case. If they are, I'd like to know more about how you use them.

Good eye! Yes those are Cherry Mojobricks.

You have mail.

You know they are vintage when they get that silver patina about them.

I always thought that they were sun bleached or something, they could be? but there sure are a lot of grey ones out there.

none of them have date stamps so they are all pre 1979 kettles. I have since re-homed the 22" kettle.
