Default My newest oldest grill

I recently picked up a 1966 Sazco Kamado. It's the first kamado to be granted a US patent. It was stored in a barn for 25+ years and is in excellent condition. I polished the aluminum lower damper door, replaced the cracked ceramic top damper with a Kamado Joe daisy wheel, replaced gasket, and patched a few minor cracks in the fire box. I also drilled a holle for the thermometer, talk about being nervous! It works great and you'd never know it was 45 years old.

Here is a brisket on it a month or so ago.

Its grate is 18" and all together it weighs about 170lb.

Just turn your head to the left. It works out.

What did you pay for it?

I've been eyeing my local craigslist for a used Green Egg; they show up now and again but are expensive.

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I paid $150 for it on Ebay and drove about an hour to pick it up. They're were a few people bidding on it but shipping was $200 bucks or something crazy. The guy from the Naked Whiz contacted me and would like to buy it if I ever decide to part with it.

Its actually bright orange, pic doesn't show that very well.
