It’s not uncommon to encounter a rusted-out screw hole when restoring an old Weber gas grill. How do you repair a rusted-out screw hole?

Here’s a quick tip: When you purchase any herb, spice, rub or pantry ingredient and you care about the freshness of that ingredient, simply write the month/year somewhere on the bottle or package as a reminder of when you purchased it.
Now you can easily check any ingredient to see how old it is. I replace all my ground spices every two years; whole spices like peppercorns and nutmeg every four years. Baking ingredients like baking soda and baking powder I replace annually. Salt is the exception—it never goes bad and doesn’t need to be replaced.
If you can’t write directly on the side or lid of a container, apply a sticker to the container and write the date on the sticker.
I recently made meatloaf burgers using a recipe from Cook’s Country magazine. In the Cook’s recipe, you make a meatloaf mixture using typical ingredients, then form into patties and sear in a non-stick skillet on the stove top over medium-high heat for 3 minutes per side. Once you’ve got a crusty exterior on the patties, they move to a wire rack over a rimmed baking sheet pan in a 350°F oven and cook for another 15-20 minutes until 160°F internal temperature.
I adapted this recipe to the Weber gas grill by searing the patties in a cast iron skillet over medium heat on the grill, then moved them to a wire rack over a rimmed baking sheet pan on the grill and continued cooking until reaching 160°F internal temperature.
