I don't think I've seen this color before.  Anyone know the official name of the color?

I'm gonna call it, "red." Like this: http://weberkettleclub.com/forums/weber-gas-grills-electric-cookers/genesis-junior-restore/

Only, NOT like Marty's! :)

Seems an odd type of seller who would know the grill is relatively rare but not lift a finger (besides taking the garden hose to it) to restore it. And then ask for hundreds.
It's the iconic symbol for the backyard. It's family/friends, food and fun. What more do you need to feel everything [is] going to be all right. As long as we can still have a BBQ in our backyard, the world seems a bit of a better place. At least for that moment. -reillyranch

I've never seen that deep of a green before on a grill.

I suppose so. To me, the picture looks like a bad picture of a red but I can see brown too now.

It's red.  That model Genesis came in red and black.  That's it.  And that one is red (look at the second picture that shows the back of the lid)

I've only seen one or two chocolate brown Genesis. Haven't seen one in the Jr model. This one appears red to my eyes. But I could be wrong...
