Here's a cool find...

The April 1959 issue of Popular Mechanics magazine featured an article titled, "Unusual Modern Ideas for Living Outdoors". Included is an interesting piece about the latest "covered kettle type" grills which "cook with no flame and can be used indoors as well as out, since there is no smoke." Really?!?

The article includes a photo of an early Weber Brothers Metal Works kettle grill. Also of interest are the DIY concrete block grill and the indoor hooded brazier attached to the fireplace wall.
