New to me genesis silver
« on: August 18, 2019, 06:42:30 AM »
My neighbor told me he got a new Weber grill for his birthday, so of course I asked what happened to the old one. He said it was 15 years old and he just wanted a new one so the old one was mine if I wanted it! Cant beat free and not having to get the car dirty to pick it up.

He told me everything worked so I think this will just be an easy clean up. Cover, grates, and flavor bars are already ordered. My wife is excited to have a gas grill around finally.

Thanks Dave, I do have a quick question. On the exterior of the hood there is some sap or sticky wax substance. Can I use a razor blade like I would with my kettles or is this painted? Any suggestions on what to use?

Here are a few more before photos:

Same porcelain is used on gassers as kettles.

Razor blade is fine for removing the crusty stuff.

Just don't razor blade the aluminum parts of the cookbox or sides of the lid.

cleaned up the lid and bowl enough to cook on. It wont be a show piece but it will work. Went with stainless flavorizer bars from qulimetal. They seem pretty nice. Also did stainless Weber grate. I like stainless. I tested the starter and it has spark so thats cool. I need to pick up a tank and I should be good to go.



Question for anyone that has experience. I found a green lid on craigslist but the guy isnt around until Monday so I dont know what he wants for it. What is a reasonable price for a lid? I was thinking of converting this to green to match my kettles.

Old grills such as this that need work and parts should be available for about $40 or less, and the things they, the cheaper they should be.
A grill such as yours, you would likely want to give about $25 or less for.  So use that as a guide.  If the lid is in nice shape, $25 would not
be out of line at all.  If you REALLY REALLY want that green lid, then the skies the limit.

The old genesis is alive. Baba ghanoush for the first cook.

Thanks for sharing your story. I love these old genesis. If the porcelain on the green one is good, I'd get it. You won't be disappointed. Check for fit though if it's only a two burner. I'm not sure they're interchangeable with the the burner. Maybe someone could come in on that?
