In 1979, my wife and I were shopping for a new grill. We came upon a Weber Summit 450 that I really liked, and so she talked me into buying it. At that time, you could buy a good old car for what that grill sold for. Long story short, I just recently retired my 16 year old Summit and replaced it with a new Genesis 330. The cart was still solid, the firebox only had 1 little spot on the back and still had the original burners(replaced crossovers once) Needles to say I have been a big cheerleader for Weber products. Also, kudos to Gina(?) in customer service. The paint was bad on the firebox of the new Genesis. Replaced it with no questions asked and had it in 24 hours. Now that is service!
