    Genesis 1000 Blue restoration

    Hi All! I’m very impressed from a lot of restoration that I saw in this forum. I bought and old Weber genesis 1000 in Blu for less than 100€ and now I’m dig in a restoration project ( for sure I would not reach levels that I saw 😢). Apart from the huge amount of grease inside the box it look...

    Genesis 1100 Redhead Restoration Project

    Hello All. I just joined the forum and this is my first post. I purchased a Genesis 1000 in 1997 and still cook on it once or twice a week. I kinda got the bug to buy another one because we're having a new patio installed and I plan to do more BBQ cooking. Last weekend, I saw another redhead on...

    Starting to restore a Weber Genesis 2 redhead. NG to LP conversion.

    Many years back, my brother and I decided to go big on either a father's day or birthday gift for my Dad and bought him a Weber Genesis 2 redhead from Home Depot. My Dad didn't do as much grilling as I do, but it got some good use, over the years, including the family BBQ's. Now, my parents have...

    First ever grill, Weber Genesis Silver B, and need help restoring it!

    Hello! I’ve never owned a grill before and found a free Weber Genesis Silver B in black. It looks well taken care of for its age and came with what I think is the original protective cover, a tank of propane, some bbq utensils, and the manual. Overall, seems great and for free I can’t complain...

    Hi, first time posting here though I've really appreciated some of the information I've gotten from this forum. Big thanks to PaulD for compiling the restoration guide, and to Chris Allingham for his video on YouTube for repairing a control valve! I just finished cleaning and greasing a stuck...

    I purchased 2 Webers to restore or refurbish. Need advise.

    I purchased 2 Webers to restore or refurbish. Need advice. This is my first post, so bear with me. After spending $600 on a Broil King 3 years ago and putting it out on the trash recently, I decided I didn't want to spend that much on another throw away grill. I began searching the internet...

    My First Weber and First Restore Project Ever

    So I've never had a Weber before, and never understood the love for them. I've also never restored anything, so this was a project I was intimidated by and excited to tackle. After looking around for a strong propane grill to have on my patio under my deck, I knew I needed to get my hands on an...

    I have been looking to pick up a gas grill for a while now, and while I originally was looking at the newer model Spirit and Genesis models, browsing this forum recently has given me an appreciation for the older model Weber grills and the various restoration threads here are a really good...

    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...

    I was lucky enough to find a Redhead Genesis in really good condition. Everything was original, missing Flavorizer bars, rusted burner tubes (expected) I Dismantled the cook-box, hood and frame, sanded it down, sprayed it with Ultra High heat Semi Gloss. I wire brushed the burners but...

    From Drab to Fab - Putting together a "How-To" Restoration Guide

    In an attempt to "do it right," I've been browsing the restoration threads on this forum. In doing so, I thought it'd be prudent to collect all the various bits of knowledge into one single "how-to" guide. While no single guide can be perfect for everyone or every grill, the idea is to capture...

    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...
