    Default Weber Grill Repair

    The side shelves on my Weber finally bit the dust. My grill is old,
    it has the wooden slat shelves, the wood was so rotten that ther ewas
    no way to reattach with new screws. The new shelves are some sort of
    plastic. I called Weber and they wanted $30 for each side shelf in
    plastic.... with the bottom shelf and the swing-up shelf they wanted
    just under $200 + shipping... I said phooey on that. For under $3
    worth of treated wood lumber from Lowes I sawed and replaced the slats
    on both side shelves in under an hour (there was nothing wrong with
    the metal brackets), I had to add a few screws as some of teh
    originals had fallen out and are lost... that's how I realized there
    was a problem, I noticed a couple of screw on teh ground.

    Look how rotten the old slats:

    Better than new:

    fawns, this is their third year:

    Grill + deer = hmmmmmm?
    Just kidding! Nice job on the Weber. We have a resident deer herd also but
    they don't get that close.

    It took me a minute to see the OLD slats in the background!
    I was thinking, "If he's bitching about those, he's got some serious
    perfection issues!"

    Nice repair job...

    It really is! I have a job to do to take apart an old gas grill so I can
    put it out for the metal pickup. It's beyond the type of repair that
    Sheldon did.

    I will assume your *rotten* slats are those things I see in the
    background.

    They look better than the originals, Sheldon. Nice job.

    How high a fence does it take to keep the deer out of your garden?

    When we lived in New England we had a 50x150 foot garden in the field
    behind our house so we were able to grow almost everything in enough
    volume to share with the critters.

    One year the woodchucks got greedy in the corn so the following year we
    built a 6 foot high wire fence around the corn area. To our surprise,
    they soon tunneled their way under the fence into the very middle of the
    corn rows.

    My husband and a neighbor solved the problem with two lawn chairs, a
    hose, beer, and two shotguns. They sat in the chairs, flooded the
    tunnels from the far side with the hose, drank the beer, and fired the
    guns as the ugly critters came out into the corn. (For those who have
    never seen one, a woodchuck looks exactly like a gigantic rat.)

    We still found whole corn stalks with the corn stripped off, abandoned
    in the field and nearby woods that winter. Raccoons. Somehow we didn't
    mind sharing the crop with them. Raccoons are cute and very smart.

    Nice series. :-)

    Do be careful tho' of that boy deer when he finally goes into rut!
    One reason we went into wildlife rescue is because we could always count
    on critters to be just what they were...

    We expected to get clawed and bit. <g>

    Deer will be deer. Never make the mistake of anthropomorphizing them...
