Grill Updates

The new Weber Genesis E-310 arrived yesterday. Its still in the box in the garage. I’m not assembling it until the cover arrives later this week or next week. I’m going to build it directly on the patio so I don’t have to a) lift it up steps and b) drag it through the muddy grass. In order to build it on the patio, I need to wait for the cover due to all the recent and upcoming rain.


I ordered new air vents for my trusty Weber Charcoal grill today. I had to call Weber customer support directly. Apparently not every part is available online but you can get them if you call directly. I took off the old vents today. I still want to clean it and do any touch up painting it needs. I have Rustoleum High Temperature Black spray paint ready to go. Apparently I can’t replace the lid vent because its attached with a rivet and not a screw. Weber support didn’t know what to go. She was surprised to hear that the grill is around 15 years old. I should have it ready to go by Memorial Day.

    Interesting about the vent cover. I have a pop-rivet gun and rivets and we should be able to reattach the top vent cover.

    Thanks Stan. That may work. The top vent is in pretty good shape. If I can get it off and clean it up, reattaching it may be perfect.
