    Bruce, Have you heard that the inside of the firebox when stripped to the metal releases a toxic chemical?

    No, I had not heard that. But then why did you strip yours down to bare metal?

    Did not know this until after I did it. But no one else seems to know about it?

    I guess I personally wouldn't worry much about it. What does a new one look like? Is it precoated in carbonized beef or something else? Like someone else said in another thread: "Just super cook a cheap piece of beef in it before you use it for cooking food to eat"

    Have never heard about it either, and can't say that I would believe it. Take it to bare metal, spray with some PAM or put some cooking oil on a paper towel and give the surface a thin coat. Then turn the grill on and crank up the heat to "season" it.

    I just lubed up the manifold valves on my Genny 1000 following Dave's how to video which was based on directions from LMichaels. I had one that would stick most of the time and not turn at all. The other two just didn't turn easily. After the lube, they all work great and smooth. Thanks.

    Nice. Small correction, I believe it was Chris's video.

    Welcome and we love photos of old grills.
    Some people rescue dogs and cats. I rescue Webers.

    This is everything I was looking for and more. Thank you for putting this together. I just picked up a Genesis 3000 Redhead and canít wait to get to work restoring her! https://imgur.com/a/eDri4
