Weber Hard Rubbish Find

  • Driving home today I spotted a familiar shape amongst the hard rubbish outside a neighbours house. It was filthy, still full of wet ash, missing the lid, had a bent leg and the lid stand was hanging off. But a few hours of cleaning, a couple of minor repairs and a lid I’d picked up when I considering building an UDS and she’s back in service smashing out some chicken nibbles.


    Amazing what people throw out.

  • Good score mate ,:clap:

    I picked one up off gumtree for 10 bucks a few days ago - had to hide in the back shed so the missus didn’t see next to the other two I already got ;):bbq:

    I know what you mean. My wife response when I pulled it out of the car was “why do you need that dirty old thing?”

  • Very jealous of that find. I'm always on the lookout but now that Brisbane council has cancelled kerbside for the next 2 years it's gonna be a lot harder.

  • A lot i'd say. I found out a while ago my father took a MBH brown Weber to the dump about 4 years ago. From looking at old photos of it, it was in perfect condition and was at least 40 years old. I'm kicking myself now that i wasn't into this type of bbq back then as it would be a killer bbq.

  • I once went to Perth to pick up 3 webers I spotted on Gumtree.


    Got 3 Webers for a total of $100.


    However, it was a long weekend with double demerits. I lost 2 points and got fined something ;(like $200. Ended up expensive second hand Webers.

  • Just found a vintage yellow Webber on eBay in Vic for $20000 I’m sure it’s a bargain.

    Wouldn’t find that on the footpath.

    How the hell did you manage to wind up the old Patrol fast enough to get done for speeding?? ;)

  • G’day

    Sorry for any confusion. It’s actually a 2007 kettle. The handles were burnt and buggered so I made a set of new ones from a bit of tassie oak. Much prefer wood handles reminds me of my old Weber from the 80s.
