Default My Restored 20-Year Old Weber Genesis 1000 Grill

My first new thread! I just finished restoring my ancient Weber Genesis 1000 gas grill and I thought you folks might like to see the results.

The grill was totally rusted out internally. I disassembled and cleaned everything, sanded, primed, and painted with various gloss levels of high-temp paint, depending upon where each piece went. New parts include ss burners, igniter, ceramic-coated cast-iron grates, aftermarket heavy-gauge ss flavorizer bars, and home-made grease catcher. I refinished the wooden parts by sanding, staining, and applying ten coats of spar varnish.

Total cost was right at $200; I figure I now have me a grill that is better than it was when new.

So far, I have cooked rib steaks and a spatchcocked chicken. I'm pretty happy with the results!

Now, on to the UDS build!

Killer restoration - I'm impressed by the amount of effort I know went into this, but the results are worth it!

My parents have a couple of those at their cottage. They don't look that good but its pretty amazing how well they have held up considering how old they are.

Great job! I too am a happy owner of a 20+ year old genesis. Years ago I upgraded (or so I thought at the time) to a SS Jenn Air. That grill couldn't even compare to the flavor of the old Weber. I recently gave away the Jenn Air to make room in the Smokey row line up for the old Weber again. After a little tlc...new wood, grates, flavorizer bars and some cleaning its back in service. So glad I didn't trash that grill years ago!
