Grillin' Like a mug..
on August 30, 2009
Almost bought several different lower end grills. No looking back. I'm a Weber believer.
Spirit E-320 is not commonly found in stores. Think they like to push you up to the Genesis line to gain the side burner.
Assembly, smooth and easy. Great packing too. Took about 2 hours. But I enjoy these projects. Would rather assemble it myself right the 1st time then have some 16 year old kid do it cut corners.
Great overall design, perhaps a little small on grilling space if you are cooking for a big party. But for 99% of my needs (family and small groups of friends) its is perfect. Temp controls are very good, and cooking over the whole grill is even. Food sear marks are a thing of beauty.
I don't know for sure but I would swear it is way more efficient burning fuel. Tank seems to last 2x+ compared to my old sunbeam. Perhaps it cooks so much better that you don't cook food as long?
Side Burner: Works great, set in low prevents wind from blowing the heat away from the pot/pan
Cons: Placement of the burner knobs makes for very limited work space on the right side. And especially if you are using the left side burner. Casters are a little small if you move your grill a lot.
Recommendation: Buy the Weber cover to go with.
