Some years ago our neighbors in Clove Valley sold their wonderful farm, pulled up stakes, and moved to a family home on Martha’s Vineyard. When they left they dropped off an old Weber Grill that they had used for years. It was a little rough around the edges but worked fine. From time to time a few things broke or dropped off. you can see the new wood handle I fashioned and the black paint on the sides and a few interior parts I replaced, but it is cast iron, heavy and will not give up! I occasionally look at those fancy models of different makes that they sell at Home Depot but give me an old cast iron Weber anytime. And yes it does use propane, it’s only weakness.
