  1. How to Fix a Gas Grill

    Save that beat-up old gas grill from the garbage dump and restore it to new condition for a fraction of the cost of a new grill. Virtually every part on the grill can be replaced, restored or repainted at relatively low cost, putting your grill back in use for many more seasons.
