Things We Love:

Base model Weber Genesis gas grills are among the most popular grills in the world. The iGrill-ready Genesis II 3 or 4 burner grills are well-built gas grills at an affordable price point.

The tried and true Weber Cooking System is great at providing even heat distribution and minimizing flare ups. The Genesis II features porcelain-enameled cast iron cooking grids. If you would like to upgrade to the 7mm stainless steel rod cooking grids,the Genesis ll Stainless Lid Models are a great upgrade. The grills also has a tuck-away warming rack, that cleverly folds down when you aren't using it.

Under the grids lies the triangular-shaped Stainless Steel Flavorizer Bars with a flame view window. These shield the burners by catching drippings and turning them into smoke, adding flavor back into your food. Weber pioneered the Flavorizer Bar in 1984, and since then they've proven to do their job extremely well, which is why they're still preventing flare-ups on all Weber gas grills today!

The Genesis II is powered by stainless steel burners that get more narrow towards the back of the grill. This shape reduces heat in the back, producing more consistent heat across the cooking surface. The burners are lit by a reliable push button infinity ignition and produce around 13,000 BTUs per burner on the 3 burner models, and 12,000 BTUs on the 4 burner models.

All Weber Genesis ll Gas Grills come pre wired for the iGrill 3. The iGrill 3 Smart Grilling Thermometer (sold separately) is the ultimate grilling tool that makes it easy to achieve grilling perfection. It mounts to your grill allowing you to monitor your food straight from your phone.

Every Genesis ll is available in black, and the E-315 is also available in copper. I love that the E-330 series grills are also available in copper, crimson and smoke.

The E-330 and E-335 series come with a 12,000 BTU side burner, and a sear station with a 9,000 BTU burner. The sear station creates a high heat zone on the grill that's hotter than other areas of the grill, creating restaurant quality sear marks on your food. The E-330 comes with and an open cart design underneath the grill with ample storage, and the E-335 models come with an enclosed cabinet with two shelves, perfect for storing dinnerware and utensils. The Genesis ll Gas grills also save you valuable storage space with its propane tank storage area, located under the right side shelf. This area conveniently allows you to connect and mount your propane tank underneath the side shelf and features a handy gauge which allows you to monitor your fuel level. As an upgrade the SE-335 comes with an enclosed cabinet with two shelves giving you ample storage, perfect for storing dinnerware and utensils.

With over 50 years in business, Weber Grills customer service is as good as it gets. They have a 10 year warranty on the grill body and on the burners. They have reputable service and quickly handle any service or replacement part situations.

As a Weber Alliance Dealer we also offer the Popular Weber Genesis ll Special Edition which comes with thick 9mm stainless steel rods and a motion activated handle with lights perfect for nightime grilling.

Things To Consider:

The Weber Genesis II does not score well for high heat due to a low maximum BTU output, when compared to other grills in the same class.
