    My niece & her boyfriend were just here…..and I gave him my BuddyL cookbook from 1965. I’m trying to get them into the Retro mindset & must say it’s working. He loved the little cookbook 🙂 – who would think you could cook Rabbit on the grill? Or liver & onions?

    Heidi, grilling is what we do when there’s major reno going on, when the kitchen gets too hot, when we’re at camp, when there’s a power outage. But we don’t have that beautiful Partiocart. I have a jillion recipes for thinks normally put in the oven or cooked on the stove top that can be done on the grill in foil packets, on a grill wok, etc.

    Please let us know when your kitchen is done! We can’t wait to see it.

    Hello,
    I am trying to find out more about the Kenmore grill with the rotiserrie above #2. My neighbor recently bought one and we are curious about its history and current value.

    All help is appreciated.
    Thank you,
    Brandt

    Do you know where I may be able to buy a vintage grill such as some of the ones you have listed in the above article?

    I found one of the first ones, the Kenmore and man its so cool. Mine is very clean but the top chrome part is dented. The top has a bunch of little ranch brands randomly drawn on it.

    Just picked up a Salmon colored Caloric G100 at an estate sale. Would love to get a manual for it but they do not seem to be around.
