I have owned my Weber S320 for approx. 6 monthes now. This is my first real grill. I must admit that it took a little bit of time to learn not to burn things on it, but even the “over cooked” meats were great. If I had it to do over though, must admit that I probabley would not get the burner on the side, as I’ve only used it once. The S.S. grates are easy to clean, and really like the propane level indicator. The first couple of times I used the grill, it really got HOT! 750*. So one must keep an eye on the temp. And the temp. guage is A1 quality as well. Also had a grease fire once with flames shooting out from under the grill at the top of the doors. No damage! I was impressed.
I thought I’d list some tips I’ve learned for those like myself who are not familiar with grilling, or at least grilling on the Weber Genesis. It truly does have uniform heat. I heat the unit up to 450-500*, slap the meat on the front half of the grill and quickly close the lid. I then turn the front two burners down to low, leaving the rear burner on high. This keeps the temp around 430*. I have the timer set for 7 minutes; once it goes off I reset the timer for another 7 minutes, flip the meat over and close the lid. I do not open the lid during the cooking and let my heat escape. Once the timer goes off for the second 7 minutes, I reset for 5 minutes and remove the meat and let it “cure” for 5 minutes time which allows the cooked flesh to reabsorb the moisture. I have found this time of 7/7/5 works on all thickness beef, pork, and skinned/boneless chicken breasts. Perfect every time. I also like to marinate the cuts of meat for extra flavor.
The Weber Genesis is top notch and it will not disappoint any purchaser in it's grilling capabilities. After seeing mine, my neighbor bought one and is also extremely happy with his.
I bought a vinyl cover for it, but never use it as I got tired of being shocked by static electricty every time I pulled it off and touched the grill. But being the better quality S.S., it weathers great.
Weber Technical Support was A#1 as well. Needed a little advice on the set-up, lost a bolt and they got me two more out ASAP at no extra cost.
American Quality survives!!

So far, we are not very impressed. The first burner doesn't light. It has been slow to heat up and to hold the heat. Grilling has been nothing special. For nearly $1,000, we expected more. Perhaps we just need to give it more time to work everything out.

parts list took sometime to sort out but once done the grill went together easily and quickly. Seems well make and heavy duty. It fired up with no leaks the first time. Took sometime researching the grill and it appears to be a really good one. Hayneedle offered a good price with free shipping and no tax. The price on these grill are very similar. It did take a week longer than estimated for the grill to arrive at the distribution depot but delivery folks were good and nice. The grill was very well packed and came undamaged.
My new grill arrived more quickly than promised, and the delivery folks were great about letting me know when they would arrive. Have not yet set up the grill, so can't comment on it -- except to say that I would not have ordered it if I did not think it was exactly what I wanted!
My reveiw is for the grill I ordered, the Weber S-330. The grill is incredible. Instructions were easy to follow. The grill operates excellent. It's quite easy to see why these grill's are a bit more but well worth it.
The Weber Genesis grill simply gets the job done and makes every aspect of grilling fun. Always lights right up, cooks food quickly and evenly and clean up is a snap. Our neighbors just got the propane version and we can't wait for them to break it in. This grill is built to last. I've left the cover off at times and it's been rained on. The next day, you would even know. If you are in the market for a grill, I highly recommend a Weber.
Product looks great, works great. Up to this point very impressed.
