Me too, Alice! It's a really cool grill, I would love to hear what they say about it on Antiques Roadshow. I would think a Texas Longhorns fan would pay a pretty penny for it.

Screengrab from the Weber Kettle Club The Westerner you see featured here has the metal handle, so Harley Spiller's must be even earlier. The Westerner doesn't appear in the 1962 catalog, so perhaps it from 1963. Check out more catalogs at the fantastic Weber Kettle Club website. Continue reading

This is my friend Harley Spiller's rare Weber. He has recently taken it "into the shop." I have asked him to keep us posted on the project. Note the metal handle, which is what they used before they switched to a wood handle, because wood doesn't get as hot. This was told to me by Weber expert Matt O'Brien, a curator at the blog Weber Kettle Club, which is absolutely fantastic. The Weber was purchased by Harley's father, Mortimer Spiller, who sold grills himself. Continue reading

Buffalo Forge Grill expert restorer Adam Gibson has bought this Canadian-made Buffalo Forge blower on ebay, and has plans for it. Adam writes: "I recently purchased this for my collection for 46 dollars from a lady in Vermont on EBay.

I'll keep you posted on the maple leaf and red transformation. Should be pretty special when it is all done. I was thinking about outlining the letters... Continue reading

Adam Gibson's son Brady workin' some nice-looking chicken on the Broil-Air on a warm day on the Lake Erie lakeshore. Adam recommends Chiavetta's Barbeque Marinade, which I haven't tried but will. And there's a take-out location in Lockport, NY. That chicken looks really good, Brady! Continue reading

I am glad I have this, evidence of Dad playing golf at the officer's course in Hawaii. I love the pink color. Dad says there were special parking spaces for the colonels (Dad was not a colonel). You can watch a little film about Dad and Mom's stay in 1950s Hawaii here. And you can watch a film about my friend Brenda Lo, a gifted 1950s Hawaiian fashion designer, here. Continue reading
