Rescue-Restore-Respect: Saving This Puckerbutt 1995 @WeberGrills Outrider

Whoever bought this poor grill back in 1995 (it’s an EO vent code) installed it’s legs upside down making it look very strange and making it’s footprint incredibly narrow and dangerous as it would be pretty top-heavy loaded with lit coals and meat.

History of the Smokey Joe Platinum (AKA Jumbo Joe or Outrider) – Introduced in 1990 from the Weber Kettle Club

After unsticking the rusted on bolts with pb-blaster and replacing all of the hardware with stainless bolts, sanding down the wood handle and applying three coats of teak oil, adding side vents and cleaning her up she’s looking mighty spiffy.
