Great picture of the grill courtesy of our friend Ed who is a fellow vintage BBQ enthusiast.
The great thing about what we do is that we get the chance to meet a lot of great people. Mel and I met a really nice couple named Steve (decorated Vietnam Navy veteran) and Sharon (fellow antique dealer) when we recently purchased some antique rifles. While we were there, Steve showed me around his property and we came upon this barn find.
Mel loves that this grill has hairpin legs. It is such a cool little unit!
I am going to have to disassemble the whole unit, strip, and paint all the surfaces. I haven’t decided what color to paint it yet. Per my post about the Royal Chef grill that I restored, there aren’t may color choices for high temperature paint.
I assume this is a storage area.
This area of the BBQ is meant to house grill utensils such as the tongs, spatula, fork etc.. It also has a tray for matches and other items.
I need to find a lid for the grill portion on the right. The two holes in the middle are meant to hold bowls for sauces. I am planning on crafting a removable semi-circle cutting board on the left side.
Our friend Ed has the same grill, but he also has this owners manual.
This one is very similar to ours except it is set up for a rotisserie and has a condiment tray on the back of the unit.
