My family gave my husband this grill in 1995 to celebrate the completion of his PhD. It immediately became a treasured family member! When we built our house in 1997, we had a grill nook put into our deck that was just the right size for our old friend. Nineteen years later it is still going strong! In our house, Saturday night is steak and martini night and my husband, Rob is quite the expert chef! Every fathers day, my three kids, now teenagers, and I engage in "reha-grill-itation". We clean it, repaint the black parts, and replace parts as needed. This year all that's needed is a new cover . Thank you, Weber, for making replacement parts available year after year!
