My New Weber Grill!
The former owners of our home left us their Thermador natural gas grill for our backyard deck. We got good use out of it over the past four years, though we just parted ways with it. It was manufactured by BSH Home Appliances, a german company, which also is behind the high quality Bosch and Gaggenau brands. Our grill was stainless steel and built well, but it was 15 years old and needed replacement parts, like new grates and igniters. Because the Thermador outdoor grill line was discontinued, parts were rare and expensive. For example, I found an appliance warehouse that had replacement grates, but the cost was $500. I decided it was time to spend just a little bit more than the cost of replacement grates and invest in a new grill. I cleaned off the Thermador and gave it away.
Enter my new Weber Grill, the stainless steel Genesis S-320.Â I purchased it online from HomeEverything, whose price was about 20% less than any of the major local retail chains. The only surprise when it arrived last Friday was that it required assembly. No big deal. Julian and I got up early Saturday morning and assembled it in time for a lunchtime cookout. Assembling and Christening a new grill is important, so I tried to capture a few moments with my BlackBerry’s camera.
