I worked for Brad Holland in the early 80's when he was building the grills in his welding shop. I have one of the original Reunion prototypes and within the next week, will have the grill completely restored. I have been cooking on the grill since 1983 and it is still going stong. REUNION'S RULE...

FINALLY, finished the restoration of the Reunion this past weekend. Gave it a trial run by cooking a Boston Butt on Sunday afternoon and as you all well know...YUUUUMMMMYYY. It looks and cooks as brand new...actually it is brand neqw...AGAIN. I will post pics later. You will see the obvious differences in production from the pics. I will be glad to answer any questions that I can.

Hey Gray was wondering my burner may need replaced after all these years of faithful service where did you get yours... If you replaced yours... Seen on at local hareware store but not sure if it is the same

Kevin

Hey Gray can you pst pic and can you tell me where you got the replacement burner for your reunion

Thanks


Gray Adams

This Reunion has been fully restored, saneded down to the Aluminum, new burner, nuts, bolts, etc.

Gray Adams

As you can see the drip pan is totally different from the new designs and much, much harder to take out. This is a real pain to remove and install by yourself.

Gray Adams

Kevin I bought my burner from a local dealer in Clearwater, FL. If you search for your local dealer in your area, you should be able to purchase one around $45.00. It will have a "Holland" stamp on top of the burner. The burners they use now and the old burners are completely different. There are many changes to the new production model, especially for taking apart and cleaning. The drip pan on the new models is much easier to remove, actually a breeze, as the old ones take a lot of errort as you can see from the attached photo. The stacks are different on the new grills and the overall design is now made for ease for the customer.

Gray Adams

Kevin, one other thought...the burner they now use will work fine and will bolt right into the existing screws on your grill. Let me know if I can help in any other way.

Sorry for the delay in getting this information posted, but I travel a lot and don't get to "play" on the computer very much.


Kevin

Gray do you know why they changed the stacks from your modle to mine I like your design better looks like it is a lot more stable then the pillars on mine
