    '69 Cado 22

    So I picked this 1969(?) Avocado two tone 22.5" BAR-B-Q Kettle up last week on CL for $35.00. It was originally owned by a man who lived in Arlington Heights, IL. His son brought it to Colorado. They called it their Turkey Cooker. Based on the frozen vents, I believe it smoked many turkeys...

    Most people mention the Smoke EZ in this discussion. If you don't need the legs from the Cajun Bandit.

    Smokey Joe: How old ???

    So the answer is 1972 or 1973. Thanks to Marty G, here's a picture from the 1973 Weber Catalog. Here's a shot of the cool handle and the speckled vent.

    Smokey Joe: How old ???

    I picked it up today. Here's a shot after some cleanup. The Enamel is cracked and missing around each leg attachment. However, the holes all look pretty good. I plan to upgrade the hardware to stainless to prevent any further rust.

    No longer looking for a new charcoal grill as I bought a................

    Congrats on the new grill. That charBroil sure looks very similar to my Atlanta Stoveworks Q Cart. Especially the side shelves and the lid. Is it an aluminum sheet wrapped around cast iron end caps ?

    Thanks. If I brought one of my cookers in the house, the boss would have a heart attack.

    Performer Lid

    My SS Performer is the perfect charcoal grill compared to a OTS or any other Charcoal grill. Simply move your head to the right a bit while you grab your beer from the table and you can see the food next to the lid. "It's always something", Roseanne Rosanadana.

    Probe Wire Mod Done....So Next Question???

    I have the same mod on my performer. Definitely don't leave probes outside. All the folks who have had problems with the mavericks seem to mention getting the probes wet.

    Which charcoal grill is best?

    My Ducane gasser is very lonesome since I got my 12 year old SS performer from CL. I keep waiting for the propane tank to need a refill. If I added a Cajun Bandit or Smoke EZ, i would have the best single weapon available.

    older performer upgrades

    I have a 2000 SS Performer. Hmmmm. I guess I have never put that much charcoal in my charcoal bin. I added a grommet to use a thermo probe without crimping the wire with the lid.

    Finally finished my gasser restore

    I can pick up one for 40 on CL without the side burner. Always wanted a redhead. Thinking about it.

    Rib Rack Recommendations Needed

    The weber looks great. However, I can't see paying 30.00 for it. Now when target unloads them in the fall, it may be worth a look.
