Default Old Schoole Weber Ranch Kettle?

All the pictures I've ever seen of the Weber Ranch has the solid square tubing frame under it. How long have they been making the Weber Ranch and did it have a normal 3 leg system at one time?



Everything sure looks like a Weber and a Ranch Kettle at that but it's just the frame/legs that threw me off. Anyone seen one like that before?

Thanks,
Trent

I think its legit. just the old style. FYI, I believe that guy is a member over at the bullet site and I thought he had a post talking about how he got it for 125 or something like that very recently. I think he is just flipping it

Thanks for the tip! I was going to low ball him anyways because I'm going to catch hell if I bring it home regardless. At least if I got a deal on it I could feel a little better about myself. ;)

Back in "73" I had $200 in my pocket, not like the $1 bills I have now.

That 200 dollars in 1973 would be worth about 1062 today. So, with the extreme reinforced support upgrades, and a current MSRP of 1299, it hasn't really changed much.

Yep, that's old school ranch.

Used (3) in my catering bidnez back in the day. They were stars of the show when it came to whole beef tenderloins (pismo) and boneless turkey breasts. My best recollection is that they ran $800 - $850 circa 1985.
