Restoring My Father's Grill
« on: June 10, 2019, 03:49:42 AM »
Happy to have found this group! I was searching for an ordered replacement wood handles for my father's grill that I inherited when he passed away over a decade ago. On average I grill once per week. More in the warm weather, less in the winter. I've never owned a gas grill and while I imagine they are convenient, I find the process of prepping the coal gets me into the zone for cooking. Similar to hand chopping food rather than using a food processor. :)

Looking forward to restoring my father's grill for Father's Day this year!

Welcome from Chicago.

I bought a gas grill once.  It was maybe a Thermos brand or something that was clearance at the end of the season at Target.  It sat at my old house for years without ever getting fired up.  Eventually, the black paint peeled off the aluminum & I just brought it out to the curb. 

The first Weber that I bought was a Smokey Joe at a garage sale that I brought off to college.  I bought a cheapie chimney & would light the coals & then walk over to a nearby store to buy a piece of meat to cook on it.  When I got back, the coals would be good to go.
