Decided it is a good time to get a new grill, and a decent one at that. Shopped around and read up on gas grills for a while as charcoal is a bit dangerous out here. Found a nice sized piece for our place and needs. Weber Genesis II E-310 with igrill 3 capability. This thing is solid. Decided to buy new in box and put it together myself...glad I did that as it was easy and fun.

Grill boasts some new technology with the burner design keeping the entire cooking surface the same temp for even cooking. Also has nice porcelain coated cast iron grates and heavy stainless steel construction. Disappointed that Weber is making shit in China now, but this thing is rock solid and great quality from what I can tell. Still has the Weber warranty and build quality. This grill also has a trick little propane tank hanger and gauge to let you know when the tank is low. Got a couple grill tools and infrared laser thermometer to up my grilling game. The warming rack on the grill also collapses down for easier access to the back of the grill. Big fan of that feature.

First thing I got to grill are some dry aged ribeye steaks and making some twice baked potatoes as well. Bring it on summer, I am ready.

Awesome! You're going to love it. I bought my first Weber 3 years ago, still works like new. I'll never buy a cheap one again.

I opted to pay more up front since some of you guys have good experience with Weber and they are just well known. When feeling all of the other brands at the store, the Weber was the best build quality hands down. I am going to try to put myself in a meat coma tonight. Got 2 dry aged ribeyes and a bone in ribeye. Trying to convince my wife the dry aged is worth it so I can get those dry age bags and take up a chunk of the fridge for a while and make my own steaks. Will report back with the final product.

You will have that grill for many years. :toast:

Like I said in another thread, if the grill is exposed to rain, it's a good idea to cover it. If not, just keep the pull-out grunge and drip trays clean and the rest should be good for a long time. When you eventually need them, you can buy parts online. I have replaced my grills and flavorizer bars so far.

I did opt for the Weber cover that fits this model. Figured it was a good investment with the intense sun out here.

Jelly...

Problem is, I can't justify anything this nice. I don't take care of anything.

Good choice. My first Weber lasted 15 years (replacing a few parts of course) and the newest one similar to yours still looks new after 5 years.
