LP Weber Kettle?
 
1 Attachment(s)
Has anyone seen a propane Weber Kettle? This is listed on Craig's List. I wasn't aware of a LP kettle. Worth it for the wooden handles alone? :decision:

For $20, I would buy it just to see what it is. Get a picture of the box and see if it came from Weber. I does have the Weber shape. I don't see any vent holes in the top though.

Here is a site that shows a gas kettle from the 70's. I am not sure when they quit making them. Go to the '70's and there is a picture there.

I am wondering if the stand is still with the bowl.

I wonder if the seller has the rest of it?

Looks like you can still get a burner.

Rare find Bob13. My brother picked up one almost identical to yours for a mere $3 at a yard sale for me. My lower bowl only has 2 holes in it. The large center one and only one smaller one and the handles were metal. The charcoal grate is much larger than the current ones made for the 22 1/2" kettles. There is also an reinforcement bracked on the grate.

The cool thing about the lid is this.
It has a wood handle. Had to make a new one.
No daisy wheel. Had to drill some holes
Large enough in diameter to fit my open drum with a 1/4'" wiggle room.
It has 4 metal legs that would sit on the lower unit raising the lid by 1/2" . Thus, no daisy wheel required. I just bent them over for a tight fit and drilled four 3/4 " dia. holes for the vents.
I love that lid.

My uncle had a propane weber kettle. We used it when we built a hunting cabin. On the virtual weber bullet they have a cookbook from the 70's that shows how you could use the gas kettle for direct or indirect cooking. I cooked many steaks on that old gas kettle until it "gave up the ship" about '95 or so.

Bob13 10-02-2012 10:33 PM

Right on fellas. As much as I love Weber, I'm afraid I'm going to have to pass on this one, unless I decide to just get it for the handles and pass the lid and bowl on. Funds and storage space are limited right now. So it goes... :frown:

wonder what happened to it

Funny this thread popped up from the dead, I just saw this on Craigslist today and was wondering about it.
