    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.

Overall, seems great and for free I can’t complain...

    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.
