Christy and I finally retired our old Charbroil Grill that served us from day one of House.0
He’s been on his last legs for quit a while now. Lid dents that prevent closing, Handle bars that rusted out, Flame shields disintegrated, Chintzy racks, and Burners that don’t heat so evenly.
We listed it as give-away on craigslist, and she was off to a new home within a couple hours.
In place, we got something that was built to last and more importantly built to cook a bad-ass meal. So after careful consideration we settled on the Weber Genesis S-330. Yeah baby!
I ordered it online from Appliances Connection because it was $100 cheaper than anywhere else. But it probably also took twice as long for delivery too. Nonetheless, this baby showed up on our doorstep yesterday and we immediately went to work to assemble it.
Here’s a photo timeline of the 3 hour process…
That was phase 1, which Christy worked on herself while I was finishing up some work. I then popped in for phase 2, and started by snapping some detail shots showing off the quality of the materials used on this baby.
This grill is all-stainless, all-the-time. And the good 304 grade stainless steel, not the cheaper less durable 303 stuff most manufacturer’s outfit their grill with. It was a good experience assembling this grill because having your hands on each piece reassured you of the quality product you just bought.
After making sure everything was screwed in good and tight, we did all the finishing touches like putting on the knobs and grates.
Then it was time to wheel that puppy out to the backyard, and take some Glamour Shots.
Now, let’s see what this baby can do. I turned on two of the burners and sear station and to my delight the temp starting rising quickly. It was like watching the speedometer on a fancy sports car just keep climbing. Dominance!
The side burner wooshed on with some power as well. Best woks ever coming soon.
So far, we’re real happy with this grill and think he’ll be the star of many outdoor grilling sessions to come. Now I can’t wait to get him to 700 degrees and cook a pizza on it. Life is good.
