I didn't know that, thank you!

Since I've linked them here, it's only fair I link y'all to them.
If you're into fast, cool cars, check them out. >Here's the thread on the Pro-Touring site<.

I love my Weber! But, does being assembled in the U.S. using Chinese parts still qualify as made in the USA? Did I tell you I LOVE MY WEBER!?!? I bought my very first Weber ever this year and researched a lot of info on it before I bought it. I almost didn't buy it when I heard it was assembled in the U.S. from mostly Chinese components. I started leaning toward Broil King, made in Canada, after all, the lesser of two evils, right? But, I know there are companies who source from overseas yet keep very high quality standards and I’m hoping Weber is one of them. But it still begs the question, is it “Made in the USA”. I also ride a “Made in the USA” Harley assembled from foreign made pieces ……. Did I tell you I LOVE MY WEBER!?!? And my Harley!!!

How many of the others are truly “Made in the USA” ??

They must be pretty good, yours is the third mention of their name.

Frog - Good question. But a question that could be analyzed until the end of time.
Much like, "What is the definition of an American car".

Ok fellas. This thread just got real cool. The fella on the car site added hyperlinks to the entire list y'all created, so I thought I'd share his hard work with the folks that came up with the list in the first place.

----I sure wish I could edit my first post, because I'd add the list to it, so in the future folks wouldn't have to wade through four pages to find this awesome list.

As we add to the list here, I'll add it there too.
To give credit where it's due, "Andrewb70" on the Pro-Touring.com site did this:


Yoder Smokers
Weber
Jambo
Lang

Wow, y'all are still adding to the list as fast as I can update it.
I think I'll let some dust settle and come back in the morning.

Rock on folks, I think we've got an awesome thread going!
