Default Weber Advice

Hey guys I need some advice. I need a second gasser for the lake house and I found a guy with a 3 burner Weber Genesis for $35. He says all it needs are new flavorizor bars, and it will be ready to go. What are your experiences with these things, what else should I look for when I go look at it.

Burners can be replaced. If not rusted out that is a very good price

Jump! The Flavorizer bars are in stock at HD here and they are easy to replace. I'd grab it at $35. That's a fairly new model too. 5 or 6 yrs old I'd say. I've had mine for 7 or 8 yrs and it has never let me down.

Pull out the large grease tray at the bottom and check to see if the rails that hold it to the main grill are rusted out (not the small grease pan holder that hangs down, but the large drawer like pan). Typically that is the only trouble spot on those that is not obvious. All other parts can be replaced if needed. Other than that looks like a great deal, scarf it up before someone else does.

Mine is 10 years old at least, load that sucker up before someone else figures out the price. Look at the price of a new one, you shouldn't even have to think. The burners are stainless, bars are cheap. That is all the parts that you would replace.

Thanks for all the advice guys. I grabbed it for $30. New flavorizer bars and a little cleaning it will be all set to go. I threw a propane tank on it last night and it fired up nice and hot. Now I see the popularity of these models, this thing is well made.

Are their new models as well built as these? I may be replacing my gasser at home too….

Absolutely grab it at that price! Mine is now 13 or 14 years old. I've replaced the cast iron grates once,, the burners once (2 years ago) and the flavorizer bars once or twice over the years. Still using the original ignitor, although I almost never use it these days, except to store my Eggcessories

The original wooden slat shelves on mine finally gave out and I replaced them with the new plastic kind. Works just like new.

If you take reasonable care of them they'll last a good long time!
