Dave inspired me to post this photo. I bought my first gas Weber in 1992 or early 1993. I passed it on to my son-in-law when I upgraded to a new Genesis in 2008. As you can see in the photo, he has been a good steward of the grill. This photo was taken when my family was visiting in HI while he was deployed to Afghanistan. I was soooo happy to see how he has taken care of it, and for me to be able to use it in his absence that I had to take a photo to commemorate the occasion! My son-in-law is now home from Afghanistan......we are thankful for that. He is thankful that he can fire it back up again! My family will only allow Weber products to grace our homes!
