I've had two Weber grills in 31 years. What's more unique than the longevity of the grills is that I'm in the military and have moved 24 times in those 31 years. Packing, unpacking and shipping are hard on household goods. I could get away with replacing the inner parts of my current Weber Spirit, but elected to treat my family to a new grill ... so we just purchased our third Weber, a new Weber Genesis. Thank you for such an awesome product line and commitment to high standards! I'm a Weber customer for life.
