    Did you replace the flavorizer bars? I'm curious about using angle iron for those ....

    You know what, if there had been 5 of them, I probably would have at least tried them out. But, since there were only 4 and since I have never used a Weber grill like this, I wasn't confident in whether I could tell if they were working OK or not. So, I replaced them. I refurbed it for resale anyway and figured that having a redneck set of flavo bars would detract too much from the resale value...maybe, maybe not. Anyway, I still have the 4 and it wouldn't be that hard or expensive to make a fifth. It would be nice to know if it would be a viable alternative to the standard bars which cost 5x as much as a few feet of angle iron.
    Probably the biggest difference would be that it would take longer for the grill to heat up as the angle iron is about 4 or 5 times as thick as the standard bars. I am not sure how long they would last being regular steel, but I would think they would hold up quite a while since they are thicker.

    The hack job grill grate is definitely a no-go however. I can't believe anyone would try to grill on that thing.

    Thanks I was really curious about the angle iron! And yes, I wouldn't want a keeper grill, or even a resale one, with those grates! Looks like the last act of a desperate grill!

    Agreed. If you look at the one photo of the angle iron, notice how they tried to patch holes in the burner tubes with metal tied in place with wire. They had that on both burners as well as the crossover tube...
    I started the grill when I got it home and it lit up but was a total crap show of flames.

    It made me wonder how their last few BBQ's turned out. hahaha

    I'd say well done, but I must admit in my past I have been a tin foil repairman. Suppose with age does come wisdom. Funny how that works!

    That's interesting, I always through that condiment rack meant it was a Spirit as i've seen so many of them with Spirit written on them. Now i know, older Genesis Grill(2005 only?) can have them also.

    I removed the firebox from the frame today. There are zero issues with the frame and even the screws on the right that don't need to come off came off with minimal resistance.

    I'm degreasing it overnight. Here's a quick peek:
