How old is your Weber kettle?

Post by 12x7 » Wed Sep 27, 2017 5:01 pm

Great resource from Weber Kettle Club.

If your grill was made from 1979 to 2014, the top vent on the lid will have one of these serial numbers which is a one or two lettered date code listed below.

A:1979 G:1985 N:1991 EI:1997 DT:2003 DE:2009
B:1980 H:1986 O:1992 EZ:1998 DH:2004 AD:2010
C:1981 J:1987 P:1993 EE:1999 DO:2005 AA:2011
D:1982† K:1988 EH:1994 DD:2000 DR:2006 AU:2012
E:1983 L:1989 EO:1995 DA:2001 DI:2007 AT:2013
F:1984 M:1990 ER:1996 DU:2002 DZ:2008 AH:2014

Beginning in 2013, a serial number was added just above the two letter date code. As of 2015, Weber has switched over to these individualized serial numbers that begin with a two letter prefix. 2014 was the last year for the two letter code system. See below.
CN####### = 2013*
CS####### = 2014*
CU####### = 2015**

*: Used in conjunction with date codes AT and AH respectively.

**: Used exclusively. There is no two letter only date code in 2015.

†: There are no true “D” code only kettles or WSMs known to exist. There are examples of 1981 “C” code Weber’s that have been seen with a small “D” stamped near or on the opposite side of the “C” stamp. These examples are believed to be the actual 1982 kettles and WSMs.

Your 100% correct, I save them in a folder and enjoy looking though them when I have a morning coffee sometimes.
