20 years ago my parents bought their first house in America. Shortly thereafter they invested in a black Weber Genesis 1000LX for our home. That grill fed our friends, family, and neighborhood kids countless times and it still sits proudly on our deck 20 years later. Now I continue my parents' tradition of providing food for my loved ones on my own Weber Grills. My stainless steel Performer and Weber Smokey Mountains are my favorites. I also enjoy restoring the colorful vintage kettles that are older than me. I plan to pass some of these bbq's to my own kids one day. Thanks, Weber for the 60+ years of creating quality products with amazing customer service!
