BBQ, Smoking, & Grilling 15

Weber Grills

cb1 | Nov 5, 2013 05:36 PM

Glad they started a grilling/BBQ board...much needed.

Question for you guys....Weber Spirit 310 vs older Genesis 310 (new in box). A little background.....I'm a charcoal/wood guy...love my Weber kettle, have had it for over ten years. It sits outside w/o cover, has never rusted and I use it all year long. I'll never give it up. But I've always had gassers for those weeknight dinners that I don't have time to mess with charcoal. The problem is in the same time I've had my Weber kettle I've been through 3 CharBroil gas grills...they just rust out. So I've decided to buy a Weber gas grill. They never put these things on sale! I came across a Genesis 310 for $469. It's a little bigger than I need for weeknight stuff, but a great deal. Then doing a little research, it must be a 2010 because the burners run left to right, with knobs on side. I'd much rather have the burners run up and down with knobs on front. Question is...am I passing up too good of a deal with the older (new in box) Genesis vs the 2013 Spirit which is running at $499? Sorry for such a long post.
