Happy Wednesday! Do you have an outdoor grill that has seen better days? After nine years, mine definitely had! Come see how I gave it new life just in time for grilling season...
This girl loves to fire up the gas grill. However, despite frequent cleaning and keeping it covered, several parts were about rusted through. Since it still worked, I hoped to replace the parts and extend its life. I thought maybe I could find parts online, but was pleasantly surprised to find them at Lowe's! Here you can see the heat tents that needed replacing.
The parts were adjustable and easy to assemble at $5.99 each.
Replacing the grill grates was a little trickier. None of them looked like the originals, but after measuring and a second trip to the store, I found another adjustable solution. Three pieces fit just right--these were $11.99 each. I really like that these are lighter weight and much easier to clean. All together, I spent about $58 and it feels like a "new" grill! Plus, I am saving by improving what I already have. I've tested the new parts...
Pork chops anyone? Come back soon for my fresh herb rub--perfect for grilling! See my Herb Grilled Pork Chop Recipe.
