Weber Genesis 1000 Rehab Project Day 2

Classic @webergrills Genesis 1000 Restore Day 2. Fired Up First Click. 550°F in eight minutes. This grill is about 25 years old and built better than most Grills built today.

Parts are readily available and because Weber stayed true to the form for a long time the parts are inexpensive. I went to @fosters_grill_store and Boots Parsons helped me identify the parts I needed in minutes.

That’s why you buy from your local Alliance dealer. Because the big box stores can’t just look at your grill and rattle off the part numbers you need and have them all in stock like they do at Foster’s. I picked up this grill last night at 5PM. Had the parts I needed to fire her up by 9AM this morning!

New grates and we’re ready to cook!

Weber Genesis 1000 Gasser Rehab Project Day 1- The Acquisition

She has good bones although she’s filthy. I’ve cleaned far worse Weber Kettles into things of beauty. I can get this one pretty nice as well.

The grill grates are roached. The drip pan needs replacing. The burners look OK. The flavorizor bars are iffy. The wood is in decent shape, need sanding and stain. The frame is solid.
