Scored a Redhead!
 
Saw this Weber 18.5" Bar-B-Q-Kettle at an outdoor antique yard back in the winter. At first sight it looked in pretty sad shape covered in snow so I just looked at it quickly and moved on, but after some time went by I started thinking about it again so I had my dad stop back in there to see if it was still there. It was, and he nabbed it for me for 20 bucks! Even came with the vintage stainless utensil accessory! He brought it by recently and I spent an hour or so cleaning her up, and after that I just had to re-christen her with some good old American food- BURGERS! Did a reverse sear of some ribeye burgers I ground myself, added a chunk of cherry for a kiss of smoke. They were outstanding, and it was nice to see lil' Red smokin again instead of sitting sadly in an antique yard with snow on her!
