Mark has done an excellent job of nursing it along for the past year or so but it's really had the biscuit. We bought it in the spring of 2001 and it's almost completely pooched. It was not an expensive one but it was practical. He's had to replace the burner on it at least once and the brick things a couple of times. Since we had natural gas brought to the house (shortly after we moved in back in 2005) we have talked about either getting a new barbecue which can work with natural gas, or purchasing a conversion kit for our old one. Given how decrepit this old one is, we're probably going to get a new one this weekend.
We use it a lot so it'll be nice to have it on the natural gas line and not have to bother with propane. I just hope that the weather is nice this weekend so we can assemble it and get using it. It would suck, big time, to buy a new one and be rained out!
