Well, I am the proud new owner of a Weber Genesis Gold B. Got a good deal on "last year's model" which I imagine is very close to this year's model. I've put it together, and I'm ready to go.

Quick question: do I need to put lava rocks in the grill? (I remember my parents old gas grill had lava rocks.) Anything else I should do before I get grilling?

Well at least you got a Weber. No, you don't need lava rocks, it has flavorizer bars. Now what are you doing wasting precious time posting when you have a new grill to drive? :D

You picked a good one. That's a grill you can grow old with. Take care of it and it'll take care of you.
Do you have a charcoal grill or a smoker to keep it company?
Gas for the week/ Charcoal for the weekend.
If it aint broke, Break it!
Then rebuild it better.

This is simply NOT true. It's charcoal during the week, and lump/wood on the weekend. :wink:

I can assure you this was an agonizing decision. Ultimately, I took the advice of many on this board and splurged on the gas grill. My fiancee has promised me, though, that I can get a less expensive charcoal kettle grill in the future.

For us, it ultimately was a weather decision. We live in DC, and we want to grill year-round. While it doesn't get brutally cold here, the thought of lighting up coals in January scared us off.

Thanks for your help. Hoping to fire 'er up tonight. . .

I don't know - standing by a hot bbq in the middle of february is a nice way to keep warm!

Good going. I even think that the older model Weber grills are better than this year's stuff.

Don't forget to get the How to Grill Book - it's the deal breaker.

Reidmid: I had "How to Grill" before I even had the grill!

My fiancee is a little worried about me. After I put the grill together on Saturday, I spent all weekend staring out at the grill on our deck.

Airfoils, personally I haven't been using gas or charcoal lately. Its been all hardwood. The gas for the week, charcoal for the weekend mantra is a good way to get people at least making a break from their gas.
