Weber Go Anywhere. This one is powered by gas, not charcoal. Its a rectangle, portable grill.

so was outside taking a closer look and found that this grill was used once.
looks new inside except for a few drippings. the spark tip wasn't even near the tube so the spark starter never worked. i adjusted that, put a can of gas on and it fired right up. good heat. amazing. i wish these gas ga's could be dated but no way far as i know. pics to follow.

Hummmm, never occurred to me to check a second hand store for BBQ equipment. Thanks for the inspiration.

Brother in law has one, if you cook really greasey cheap burgers you can turn the gas off and run it on fat :-). Does that make it a Weber FAT GA ??
