    Genesis 1000 redhead (1992)

    Neighbors of 20 yrs moved out recently, saw them throwing this away was very pleased to wheel this into my backyard and add it to the colection cleaned up the outside with some steel wool used some citrus de-greaser on the inside, I plan on restoring the wood, already got some rcplane Stainless Steel flavorizer bars ordered on on its way. The top is flawless I was very lucky to score this for free....



    also going to replace all the hardware. This is an 1992 model genesis

    Nice pick up! My brother and I rescued one just like that (except in black and setup for ng) from his boss' curb a few years ago. We cleaned it up and took it out to our families lake house and hooked it up. Its my go to whenever I'm lucky enough to get away for a weekend there. Last season the flavor bars were looking very thin, probably gonna need some new ones this year and take a hard look at the burners.

    Now that I think of it the storage at the bottom on ours is wood slats like the side table. Some of which the brackets supporting them have rusted through so the slats are falling off... Sounds like a project for next time I'm there.

    Enjoy the new addition!

    got her torn down today going to prep the surface and paint 2mrw, got some guests comming over today for a BBQ so the paint must wait untill tomorrow, overall the BBQ was in great condition, going to take care of the rust and paint the outside of the box with some high heat black paint. The burners look good dont think I need to replace them.


    The sides of the hood are nice and black with no oxidation so as far as painting them i'm opting out of it, besides the grill is 21 yrs old cant look too new. Hope to get 21 more yrs of cooking on it

    Overall she looks pretty good, and you sure can't beat the price!
