Found this sitting by the curb with the trash.  I haven't had a chance to look at it to closely yet, but it seems like the only thing wrong with it is it's missing its gas line and regulator. Tag says its an LP grill, anyone know how to tell if its been converted to natural gas? Overall it seems to be in great shape!

Hook on a tank and regulator hose and fire it up. 
If it has nice blue flames you are fine.  If it has crazy
6 inch high yellow flames, it was converted to NG. 
Is the floor pan in the cabinet a rusty mess as you
will typically fine on those?

Nope, from what I've seen there is no rust anywhere.  It looks really clean.

Nice!   I had a similar experience.   A guy down the street got a new Genesis 2 and put his old 3 burner Genesis Silver B at the curb.  I wheeled it home and cleaned it up.  Sold it a year later for a decent bit of coin.

Im trying to decide if I want to keep this or not.  Im thinking its to small for me though. If this was a 3 burner genesis I I would keep it in a second.

This looks pretty much identical to my gasser that I've been using for 15 years or so now. Original burners and igniter still too. The only thing I've had to replace is one set of "flavor" bars so far. Tho the aluminum drip pan tray (the big thing that catches all drips inside the grill, not the small catch pan) has deteriorated a bit and should probably be replaced. I'll never get rid of this one.

Anyway, it's a solid grill - hope it serves you well.
