Things To Love:

The iGrill ready Weber Genesis II Special Edition gas grill is an upgraded version of the iconic Genesis II base model. As a proud Weber Alliance Dealer, we can offer you the Genesis II Special Edition, which is not available from most other Weber Grills dealers. Choosing this grill means premium features, including a handle with motion-activated lights and thick 9mm stainless steel cooking grates, which are a nice step up from the porcelain-enameled cooking grates available on the base Genesis II models. The Special Edition comes with a 10-year warranty and is backed by Weber's industry-leading customer service.

The tried and true Weber Cooking System is great at providing even heat distribution and minimizing flare ups. Within the durable cast aluminum housing, are the triangular-shaped stainless steel Flavorizer Bars with a flame view window. They shield the burners by catching drippings and turning them to 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 Special Edition 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 are lit by a reliable electronic infinity ignition.

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.

The Genesis II Special Edition SE-335 comes in black.

The Genesis II Special Edition grills are packed with features. The SE-335 comes with a side burner with a 12,000 BTU 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. Like the Genesis II, the Special Edition saves 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 customer service is as good as it gets. They have a 10 year warranty on the grill body and stainless steel parts parts, like the cooking grids, burners, and flame tamers. They have reputable service and quickly handle any service or replacement part situations.

Things To Consider:

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