That's my thought too. I had originally planned to just 'fix' this grill up a little and give it to someone when I was done. The only parts that HAD to be replaced in this grill were the flavorizer bars ($35) and the grill grates (as little as $35). The burner tubes were ok but not great. The grill can be lit without the ignition system, but for $12 I figured what the heck. This grill was $500 new and their current model of it is that same price. Since I have decided to keep it I might as well be happy with it at the same time :)
