Re: Thoughts on a Grill

Nothing last forever.

Stainless about 5 years with use

Really? I have a Genesis Gold I bought in April 1993 from Amazon. I literally haven't replaced a single thing on it yet, except for the aluminum foil drip pans. It gets used April through November or so. No cover on it and it's been outside since day one.

I did not know Amazon was around that long. Back in 1993, my school was still using the Apple II computers. The Internet did not become a household staple until 1996 or 1997. I first got online back in 1997 when I first got WebTV.

Amazon.com went online in 1995.

Ouch. 2003. Sorry about that.

That being said, I was on the internet in the early 80s. Well, what became the internet I suppose--ARPANET in college from '83 to '87.

I bought a Huntington Rebel Model 612064 two years ago this June. It's made in the U.S.

See »New LP grill? for how I "re-engineered" the grill,

and »Recycling a BBQ grill frame for how I recycled the old grill into a prep table.

It's been an excellent grill, and still looks and operates like new. I periodically re-season the grates occasionally with cooking oil and wipe them off after each use. I also seasoned the porcelain coated burner deflectors to make them easier to clean.

Stuff doesn't stick nearly as much as the porcelain coated grates I had on the previous grill, although I use aluminum foil for basted BBQ.

In 1978, I was in College. While most all the students used punch cards, I was one of the few that used the Decwriters and Tektronix terminals (and teletypes). I ended up on the ARPANET and was connecting to a computer that did mathamatic formula calculations. The system was called MACSYMA at MIT.

Ah, those were the days...When you cared where the system you connected to since this was all new stuff.

In 1971 Our EE department used IBM 3101 terminals to dial into Lewis Space Center's ARPANET. It sure was amazing to watch the text magically stream at a blazing 180 baud.

We even had an analog computing system we used to generate graphs of differential equations, and Wang calculators that could calculate numerical values for trig functions in as little as 30 seconds.

Our EE's IBM 360/20 and Physics lab's 1401 systems were state-of-the-art back then. *sigh*

Just think, a few years later that turned into what started the whole thing. Pretty cool.

I still remember the punch cards. Also was running a BBS back in the 80's.

Grilled the first steak on the new grill.

MUCH better than I expected. The tru Infrared worked exactly as described. The steak was nice and juicy and did not burn. It was also evenly cooked.

Cleaning was easy too. No messy drip on the burners and I just removed the pans and washed it in the sink.

It's not a Weber and I'm not a Weber fanboy but so far I'm loving it.
