    Genesis Redhead 1100 "Diamondplate Edition" Restoration

    This is my first Weber grill! After owning several Walmart specials, I decided it was probably time to get a decent one. While researching new models I stumbled across this forum and was hooked! I found this Genesis 1100 earlier this year on OfferUp. It was $100 which may have been a little...

    Heat Output/Searing: Early 90's Genesis vs newer models

    Hey all, new member here. I'm gonna post some of my Webers soon and show off my cooks too. In the meantime, who was an older "Redhead" Genesis and a newer (say late 2000s to current years) Genesis and do the old ones not have as much power? I did a resto on my Redhead and the first cook was...

    1987 Genesis II Redhead

    With the help of a longtime Grillfella I was pointed to a Weber redhead with wide wood slats, which he told me indicated a first generation for Weber. I had zero prior interest in a gas grill but when I heard this was probably Weber's entry into gas grills I got real interested. The grill was at...

    Redhead Restoration - Help!

    I thought I would jump right in to the world of restoration, and found a sweet Genesis (model/age unknown, no serial) for a whopping $20. I was so excited until the lid fell while loading into the car, snapping off the connectors on the end caps. Now I'm wondering where to go next. Ive already...

    Genesis 1000 Fans - your restoration project is calling you!

    :redgenesis1: I grabbed a Genesis 1000 from the curb of an unloving owner. This grill is complete, minus the flavorizer bars. One of the Valves was broken, but I have the brand new Valve. Pics are available, AND I will deliver it within a 25 mile radius of Wilmington, MA. This is your chance...

    Mating a red top 1000 with a 2002-3 Silver B

    Hey guys, this is my first big post on the Weber bulletin boards and I've been cooking with Weber's for about 20 years now. I have a Weber 3000 1997 in storage and I drive for a living now so I don't have much time at home. On the road one day I saw a red top on the side of the road with a free...

    Craigslist Link Just saw this redhead on Craigslist. I just got one but this would be a great rehab project for someone on the forum. Good Luck. Only $25.00. Someone has to get this.

    My first restore - an Ol' Redhead Genesis 3 from the 80's

    The Weber forums have been an excellent way for me to learn about grills. I was just looking to replace my crappy CharBroil because I really didn't know or think there was much to a grill. Heck, I was still saying that I BBQ'd.. even though it was all NG or LP, see I'm already learning. Once I...

    Weber Genesis 1000 Readhead from Long Island

    This story started with a search for a cart frame to rebuild a blacktop Genesis 1000 that was given to me recently. I posted a want-to-buy Craigslist ad looking for cheap or free parts off of forgotten about Webers. I unexpectedly received emails from two awesome Weber lovers within hours of the...

    My Genesis 1000 rebuild (its a redhead now!)

    Hi all. I got this old genesis from a family friend a few years ago. I used it in poor shape for a long time and loved it still. I recently started lurking around these forums getting ideas. My Parents asked me what I wanted for christmas this year. I shopped around and around for a decent...
