Genesis Red Head
« on: September 07, 2019, 11:37:00 AM »
Picked up this gem this morning. I believe it’s from 1998. Going to need new grates, igniter and flavorizer bars. A good clean up and this’ll be in the regular rotation. Wife be be excited to be able to grill again as she is too impatient and unwilling to cook with charcoal.

 A classic.  IMHO better than Weber gassers made today.  Enjoy the restore.

That will make a nice addition, getting your wife involved in outdoor cooking makes it priceless

Replaced the wood slats with some new ones. I used mahogany that I already had in the garage.

That thing looks pretty nice Tom! Congrats. I broke the handle on mine while I was trying to put it on top of the car lol.

Thanks. Wife likes it and is anxious to fire it up. Need to get the propane tank filled (it has the quick connect fittings) or get a new regulator hose to use on a standard tank. All the new parts I ordered will be delivered tomorrow so hopefully we can grill something on it soon.

Looking great. My wife and I have been loving our recent accusation of a silver genesis. Wish it was a red head wood slat but I liked the price of free so can’t complain. Looking forward to seeing some cooking photos on this one!

Got my replacement parts in today.

New grates, flavorizer bars, igniter, and warming rack. Also got the propane tank filled.

Going to cook something on it after I burn off all the new parts.

Grilled some chicken on the genesis tonight. Didn’t take any pics but the chicken (boneless breasts) turned out great and the grill performed flawlessly. This thing cooks really well. Very even heat. I’m really impressed and happy with this old redhead!

I need to get my tanks filled. Having a gasser is convenient for when its late and you need to get dinner going fast. Also cooks hotdogs perfectly lol
