24 June 1957 “Barbecue 1950’s Style”

newbarbecue If many of you are like me, you like to find and use vintage items. That is why I love to have a catalog of what was available so it is easier to identify items as I come across them or to know how to look them up to find them. As Summer is officially started, I thought I would share these fun Barbecue items with you. Happy hunting!barbecue6This electric smoker looks interesting and might be waiting for someone at a yard sale this summer or in Grandma’s back potting shed.

barbecue7 The electric ‘bellows’ is a bit much, but does show the move to having every convenience available to you, especially if it was powered by electricity, once a rather trip source of power, though not so now.barbecue9 I think we have all seen these coffee urns, they were such a part of any social function from school, the club, church, you name it, it was there standing sentential with hot tea, coffee, cocoa. Here, however, it is a ‘new thing’.

Now, to go along with that fun new grill, some great vintage recipes. These are certainly relevant today and sound rather easy. Enjoy them.

Now, let’s close with Ward Cleaver’s take on ‘Women’s Place’ to son Wally. I think, however, we can see that at the time it was taken tongue in cheek and that though women were primarily at home, I don’t think Ward means anything degrading by it. And I love the punch line, with the asbestos gloves.
