Default Check out this classic Buddy L

My brothers are in the Mustang restoration business. I was up at their place today walking around the back lot and came across an interesting kettle.

It is a cast aluminum kettle. About 3/8" thick aluminum. Dampers on top center and bottom. Ken said he pick this up from someones trash and liked the way it looked '70s.

The original color is almost a dead ringer to his Grabber Orange Mach1. It is all there. It still even has the sunburst grate. He loaded it up and took it to his house from the shop and said he would redo it.

I spent about 20 minutes with Google and found a little about it. Found several news paper ads and a Popular Science product announcement on a gas version. The ads I found place it '70 - '74 vintage.

Ad from Cape Girardeau, MO:

Ad from St. Petersburg:
http://news.google.com/newspapers?ni...g=3413,2243327

* Note in the St. Pete ad there is a rotisserie like one we have seen here on BBQB.

Sure is, but the prices on other items sure are depressing when you look at what we are paying now for the same chit.

Kind of my thought, as well. Though if you consider the rise in median income in the interim, it doesn't hurt so bad. My dad made about $14,000 per year in 1970 or so, which is doing pretty well for a middle class family. Our 7 (yes, SEVEN, though one was used as my dad's "shop" and the other as his "office") BR house bought in 1969 cost $54,000.

Has anyone else run across one of these? I have one that I inherited from my father-in-law . It cooks like nobodys business! And I'd love to find one like it for my son , but they seem to be almost non existent.

You can tell a German anything, but you can't tell him much.
