We are about to begin restoring a 1985 Genesis 2. What kind of wood would be most accurate to what was used originally? We’ve been told redwood or cedar. Does anyone know which it is?
Thanks Chris! I looked at these ads yesterday and thats the conclusion I had come to! Thank you so much for finding and posting these ads! They have been very helpful in my research!Heather, cedar would be the original wood. "Cedar work surface" is mentioned in the 1985 Weber Genesis ad called "Well Done", second image shown in this thread:
I found these two 1985 Weber Genesis 3 print ads on Pinterest. Note that these grills have the rarely seen wide wooden slat shelving. Also, the Weber phone number is 800-000-0000...perhaps these were early design comps. Genesis 3 shown here came with the side burner as standard equipment...tvwbb.com
