I already reconfigured the gas lines in my basement and started another line to feed her. Tomorrow I should be able to get it through the block wall, under the porch crawlspace (spiders, eww ) and up through the deck.
And then it's trying to decide what to cook on her first. Maybe a hot dog
Oh how quickly we forget those who have gone before...
She's beautiful, Pac! Congrats! Here's to a long relationship!

Ooooooo, shiny, shiny bright metal.

Looks like you got a really nice one! Congrats!

Which model is it? What's the burner config? What is the cooking grate made of?

C'est la vie. Joe could have been a great friend.

Technology triumphs again. I know you'll enjoy your new gasser. With the natural gas feed it will be very convenient to use for many years to come.

Congrats

Thanks! I hope it's my last relationship. As the saying goes, I'm getting to old for this...

Thanks Andy. It has three main burners running front to back with a dummy flavor bar in-between the right one and the middle one. It looks like a burner is there, but just fills the space. Kind of odd I thought. And instead of another dummy flavor bar like some have, this one has a searing burner in-between the left and middle burners, which is really just another regular burner (with a smaller knob) to give you a lot of heat on that side.
It's an S330 Genesis. It has the SS grates and aluminum box.

And I'm hoping to buy my last one!
If this one gives out after 8-10 years I'm going to invest in a circle of rocks on the ground.

Thanks .40.
Of course technology triumphed. Like I said, I didn't need a charcoal smoker or grill because I already have two things that cover that.
I did look at the Acorn while I was there. The ceramic in your KJ make yours seem like the better do everything grill if I get so inclined to go that way.

Thanks again everyone.

Nice Grill! Looks like she's part Borg on her mother's side.
