Alex was encouraged by friends to rescue this cast-out vintage (about 1995) Weber grill... and some sister parts, he found on the streets of Charlestown, MA where he lived. Like our Jeep Wrangler '95, this was the end of a heavy metal era while the upgrades are impressive enough and the size just right for Old Farm. Although Alex began the restoration, Christian was able to complete the project before our Labor Day family picnic here.
Most of the parts came from internet sources since restoring these grills has become a cult club it seems. Christian made the wooden pieces he sealed though to replace the plastic slats, which is a wonderful look I think. This was a complete disassembly and rebuild with some upgraded parts, and utensils from Ocean State Job Lots. The propane tank was another free find.
