1972 Weber Gas Barbecue Kettles Catalog

Groovy gas grills in black, red, and puke green, three different mounts, and two fuel options. Prices starting as low as $99.95. Lots of accessories available ranging in price from $2.45 to $37.95!

What’s interesting to me about this catalog is the simplicity of the cover photo. Unlike other catalogs of this era where Weber arranged elaborate scenes of grills, bountiful food, and a group of people in a real backyard setting, this one seems to have been done quickly and cheaply. The background is a large photographic image, there’s artificial grass below, a sad looking turkey on the grill, few accessories, and just two people gathered around the grill.

I love the clothes and hairdos! Hope you enjoy this blast from the past!

Best,
Chris

Groovy! Thanks for sharing.

To your point, it would be interesting to know the history behind that choice for the cover photo. I assume I'm seeing the canvas sprawled on the ground covering.

Re: the woman's clothes. I don't remember those from the 70's

But I do like the man's hair. His shirt, ok, color of the grill, yes!!!!!! ;)
