We’ve always been forward thinking, but it’s never been truer than in our new Genesis E-310 series gas grills with front-mount control knobs. We moved the control knobs from the side table to the front panel for full-on heat control and gave you two extra large stainless steel tables for all of your grilling needs. And we did it without compromising an ounce of the cooking performance that makes Genesis a legend. The Genesis E-310 gas grill comes equipped with an electronic ignition system providing you with quick and reliable ignition. The enclosed cart discreetly hides your LP tank (tank not included) and a precision fuel gauge lets you know exactly where you stand on fuel at all times. Porcelain-Enameled cast-iron cooking grates retain heat evenly and sear foods beautifully. The black porcelain–enameled shroud has a built in center mounted thermometer and the steel doors and aluminum end caps are also black.
Weber Genesis E Series Gas Grills
Excellence from Every Angle
You'll love cooking up a storm on this glamorous grilling stunner. The Genesis E series gas grill comes fully equipped with front-mounted control knobs, porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grates, and porcelain-enameled Flavorizer bars to effectively hold and distribute heat as you grill. Now your skills can rival those of the world's greatest restaurants and steak houses.
Weber's Original Gas Grilling System
Notice how sturdy the shroud feels as it opens smoothly on its hinges? See how the burners roar to life on the very first try? Delighted by how simple it is to achieve a mouthwatering meal every time? It's no accident. Weber spends countless hours perfecting the grilling systems on its gas grills, assuring easy assembly, an evenly heated cooking surface, and precision controls so you can tone things down or up to the perfect heat level for direct or indirect cooking.
Cookbox and Shroud
The cookbox houses the components of the cooking system: cooking grates, burner tubes, Favorizer Bars, and the grease management system.
Made of cast aluminum, Weber's gas-grill cookboxes are durable, efficient, require minimal care and maintenance, and can withstand the heat needed to grill at any temperature. In addition, the shape of the cookbox, when combined with the shroud, allows for the proper circulation of heat around food for even cooking whether you're using direct or indirect heat.
Weber gas-grill cooking grates come in three exceptional materials: porcelain-enameled steel, stainless steel, and porcelain-enameled cast iron. Each type retains heat evenly and sears food beautifully. Porcelain-enameled steel cooking grates are durable and easy to clean. Stainless steel rod cooking grates make lovely sear marks, hold heat very well, and clean up with ease. Porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grates combine the ease of porcelain-enameled with the superior heat retention of cast iron--no need to season and easy to clean.
Weber's burners are made of high-grade stainless steel, which will stand up to the small amounts of water found in liquid propane and natural gas. The burner tubes are made of a singular piece of steel with no welds, making them stronger and more resistant to rust and burn-through. And while they are protected from grease drippings and food by the Flavorizer bars, Weber cart gas grill burner tubes can be cleaned easily by gently brushing with a Weber stainless-steel grill brush.
Controls for each burner give you the ability to grill by the direct or indirect method. Even more, the burners are spaced to provide heat across the entire cooking grate, and the burner valves have infinite control settings, so you can fine-tune the heat levels.
The innovative Flavorizer bar system, originally created by Weber, is designed perfectly to perform a variety of functions on the Spirit , Genesis, and Summit gas grills. Angled just right, the Flavorizer bars catch drippings that smoke and sizzle, adding flavor to your food. Any drippings not vaporized by the Flavorizer bars follow the slope of their unique angle and are funneled away from the burner tubes, down into the grease management system. Not only does this help prevent flare-ups inside your grill, but it also protects the burner tubes from becoming clogged.
Made of either porcelain enamel or stainless steel, Flavorizer bars are durable, long lasting, and easy to care for. Periodically brushing them clean with a Weber stainless-steel grill brush will help keep Flavorizer bars performing at their best.
When juices drip off the meat, they funnel down to the Flavorizer bars, and then what doesn't vaporize into wonderful smoke goes down into the grease management system. The grease management system consists of an angled grease tray and catch pan. The grease tray rests beneath the cookbox a safe distance from the burner tubes to prevent the grease from catching fire. Grease is channeled down the grease tray and into the catch pan. Both the grease tray and catch pan are easy to clean. The tray easily slides out of the cabinet for cleaning, and when the catch pan starts to fill, simply remove the disposable drip pan, toss it in the trash, and replace it with an empty pan.
A fuel gauge lets you know exactly where you stand on fuel at all times.
Sear Station Burner & Side Burner (Model E 330 Only)
Maximize the heat without minimizing grilling space. This high-powered sear burner is designed to step up the heat on demand for searing. Even more, a flush-mounted side burner lets you multi-task while grilling.
Genesis E-310 LP Gas Grill
As part of the Genesis E series, the E-310 gas grill has a front-mounted control panel with three stainless-steel burners and an individual electronic ignition system. The unit offers a 38,000 BTU per hour input, and its total capacity consists of 637 square inches of cooking space (a 507-square-inch primary cooking area and a 130-square-inch warming rack). The unit also includes porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grates, an enclosed cart, and a porcelain-enameled shroud with a built-in thermometer. Even more, it comes with porcelain-enameled Flavorizer bars, porcelain-enameled heat deflectors, six tool hooks, two heavy-duty front-locking casters, and two heavy-duty back swivel casters. Requiring an LP tank (not included) to operate, the gas grill measures 30 inches long by 60 inches wide by 64-1/2 inches high. Weber covers the grill with a five-year limited warranty.

Issues during assembly(2): 1. Door height needs adjustability to make them line up (for us OCD customers), 2. the parting lines in the front panel casting needed to be filed down to fit. Screw would have broken out casting wall if assembled as received.
I could have actually bought three of that sale-priced, flimsy, chrome-wonder for the cost of this grill ... and I'm glad I didn't!
The quality difference is extreme, but more than that is the performance difference. The grates are thicker (I prefer the iron to the stainless), the firebox weighs three times more, the thermometer is more accurate, there are finer burner controls, and even the side shelves are sturdier.
This thing is built to last, and if you keep it covered it truly will.
Here are some of the features that you'll enjoy:
+ There is a simple (therefore sturdy) scale arm that you suspend the propane tank from which will give you a good idea of what's in the tank.
+ There is a disposable drippings tray down in the bottom, underneath the grease shelf.
+ The grease shelf is actually angled so that liquid moves into the dripping catcher! What a concept!
+ The magnets on the doors actually hold them shut.
+ The burners ignite nicely each time.
+ There are simple tents that are spaced out under the grate to protect the burners from fallout. Because they are sharply raked, nothing collects on them, but rather ends up down in the grease shelf where it belongs. Flare-ups are very unlikely.
+ The grates get hot and stay that way because they are nice and thick.
+ The firebox gets hot and stays that way because it's nice and thick.
+ You can finely control the heat inside the grill because of the grates and box, allowing you to use it like an outdoor oven. I've made roast turkey breast, whole chickens, and even baked potatoes in addition to the standard grill fare. I was never able to pull these off with my old W-mart special.
And here's the downside that I can find:
- Costs more in the short run.
Honestly, you should buy this grill if you're thinking about it enough to read this review. It will change your mind on the value of the other "bargain" units, and you'll genuinely enjoy outdoor cooking more.
If you're thinking of the model up ... I'd try to dissuade you. Stainless grates are over-rated (they don't hold heat as well, and won't stay pretty like that forever), side burners are pointless (you're never actually going to have a sauce simmering next to you ... the sauce will be plenty hot enough once it goes onto the cooking food), rotisseries are unnecessary when you have good burner control allowing for indirect heating.
If you're still on the fence, go to a store and feel the difference, then come back and buy the gold one here. It looks stellar in the dusk sun. ;)
This grill is fantastic.
My old weber gas grill, and other gas grills I have used are great because they are easy to get started, and you have some control over the heat. But this one really works beautifully and a lot better -- and I realize now that one key feature is the grease trap. In the old grill, even with somewhat regular cleaning, grease and other bits would build up, creating a kind of fire pit under the grill -- flaming grease turns out to not be ideal (who knew?). In the Genesis, grease easily flows to the catch pan, and that's very easily removed and replaced (also, the trap and pan are enclosed so animals can't eat the grease and destroy the aluminum pans).
So, without the threat of 3-alarm grease fires, I can actually use the three areas under each knob separately. We often grill vegetables along with meat or fish and just throw them all on at once (man cooking). Weber talks a lot about the "indirect method" which never really worked whether for charcoal or my old weber gas grill, because heat was so uneven or hard to control that I never got it right -- it's a snap with the Genesis. Gas isn't charcoal, to be sure, but the whole "flavorizer bars" bit works pretty well. It's not barbecue, it's grilling.
I feel like I have gone from cooking on an uncontrollable open flame, to cooking with the smoky flavor of grilling but with control over the outcome. My kids used to laugh at the "very well toasted" grilled chicken ("blackened"?) I would make, especially when I was in a rush after work. Yeah, ok, so I really should have cleaned the other one more often. But I didn't and it was a pain. The Genesis seems more flexible and less prone to my laziness. Proof: kids were actually complementary more than once (and these are teenagers, so, that's saying something) with meals.
It's a really solid build and heavy duty. I feel like it will last for a good long time.
The enclosed section also keeps the propane tank, which is great. The old grill had the bottom exposed, and the tank got splashed with dirt and would rust quickly from rain -- this one is neatly hidden inside. Good for keeping animals out from the grease pan which they liked to chew and mangle.
The one thing I may have to get used to are the cast-iron grill racks -- the old grill had the tubular steel ones (you might be able to get them for the Genesis), and it was easier to get under delicate foods like fish, especially if it was sticking a little since they were smooth and straight. The cast iron ones are a little rough, and also have bars going both directions so spatulas will get stuck occasionally. This is a minor quibble, and probably just will take another few months to get used to.
I ordered this from Amazon and it arrived disassembled. It's pretty heavy in the box, so get some help unpacking. Putting it together takes some time, but it's really not hard and the instructions are very good. They provide most of the tools you'll need, but it's a lot more convenient if you have a basic socket or box-end wrench set. I always like a good project, and my 15-year-old daughter did most of the work, so that was fun and a good experience.
Bottom line: worth every penny.
