    Last year for wood slats and lid handle?

    Found an older 3 burner Genesis with a flip up table. My question is...what was the last year Weber used wood for the slats and lid handle (wood, not the gray durawood)? My dad used to have one in the 80's and from what I recall, I didn't them like that in the 90's.

    Do Some Weber Kettles Cook Better Than Others?

    As I did my final cook yesterday on my brother's "G" code OTS survivor kettle before completely disassembling and cleaning it last night (he's taking possession of it next weekend) I pondered: Do some kettles cook better than other ones?

    How to date a Weber Ranch Kettle?

    So I am trying to figure out exactly how old my Ranch Kettle is. Its definitely 3rd generation, but I can't seem to find a letter code anywhere on it (as the vent is black). The handles don't look exactly like the new dark gray Weber handles and there is no writing on them (but they look...

    Weber Grills: Why Do You Have What You Have?

    We are all here because we like Weber grills. But I was thinking today: why do you own the grills that you own? Specifically, I am curious why you own charcoal, gas, or combination of both? Why do some own one grill and others have many? Some people collect Weber's; some like to restore them...
