Here’s The @WeberGrills O Code ’92 Redhead Kettle Restore Live Blog

Featured Image -- 367427

Northeast BBQ

10/16/16 The subject:


Condition: lots of rust on the legs/triangle. Missing ash sweeps rusted in ash sweep bolt. White paint dots on the faded lid.  Usual cruddy bowl.  Missing handle.  Rusted/oxidized lid vent.  Missing ash pan.




Tackle the bowl with dish soap/water razor scraper/steel wool/sponge/paper towels.


Next, what’s left of the old ash sweep system is rusted in place.  Break out the oscillating tool and cut off the bottom nubs that went through and it broke free.


Now it’s time to clean the bottom of the bowl using the razor scraper/steel wool.


Having the legs removed start sanding them with 150 grit sandpaper using long strokes just as is advised in the Weber Kettle Club restoration guide, and then moving up to 250 and then finishing with steel wool and then polishing.

Legs and triangle before-


A finished leg on the left and an unfinished on the right-

Well you can cross the classic @webergrills Redhead off the must have list

Northeast BBQ

Thanks Km Smith For Picking It Up a For Me.

It’s a 1992 O Code.

Picked up an oscillating tool to lop off what’s left of the one touch system in the bottom. There’s one of the wooden handles missing. The legs will clean up fine I’m thinking.

A few chips on the bowl.

She’ll be a cooker for sure. Probably spring for a new ash pan, ash sweeps and sand and spar varnish the handles that are on there. That’s the plan for now. I’m super anxious to see how much of the original color I can get back. She’s faded some but I’m thinking with some love and care it’s going to be gorgeous.

Butcher Block Cart Restoration With Tung Oil

The first cart restore I used Spar varnish and got great results. I wanted to try something else this time mostly just to learn the differences.

Here she is as I got her-

The updates yesterday-

Lightly sanded the butcher block cart and now about to apply a Tung Oil Finish. I don’t consider myself real handy so we will see how this goes.


First coat of Tung Oil applied. Went on easily. Now I’ll let it set up for a bit and apply a second coat.



After letting it set up overnight a third coat-
