Wow!  That is a beautiful collection!  I'll let my wife take a peek at this to let her know that I'm not that bad!

Wow, helluva collection Greg, well done!  My fave in that group will always be The Chief, but that Genny 5000 (or whatever the moniker was for the glass-doored gasser cart) is a close second.

Fantastic collection.

I would love to one day build a collection like that, especially through hitting local ads and thrift shops etc (but that ain't gonna happen here).

What a great setting to have them in too.

Was lucky enough to get a sneak peak at these photos. Just as impressive now Greg!

Thanks @OGlenn! It is actually a 5500, I believe. It is an awesome gasser. The thermal couple is a PITA, you can't fire up the Charcoal starter without having the box going... Chief was the start to this, so it is special.

Just want to say thanks for all the positive responses. I have other shots, but I am not a @pbe gummi bear or @MartyG.

This hobby has been therapy for me. It is not all the grills shown, but the ones that have been gifted or passed on that are most important to me. Tomorrow would have been our sons 25th birthday. i do this in his memory, but his brothers will carry on the legacy.

I think it is a 5000, the 5500 was the built in version (It had a plinth under it rather than wheels). And it is fairly easy to remove/bypass the Flame check valve, which also lets you turn off the front burner if you wish, keeping the others on.

But hay...what a collection you have. I stand in awe.......
