New Weber genesis E310

Sup guys
Although I cook stick most of the time there are day where gas is really fast for 2 burgers or chicken breast.

I have bought expensive grills in the past....cast iron burners....stainless and what not.

I have never......NEVER got more then 2 years before the burners are shot!!

I did 6 full set replacement burners on one grill for the full 5 year warranty just to make a point to the grill company (Charbroil)

I have a Brinkmann pro series wich will be 5 years old in May and is a complete POS!!
I have rebuilt the insides 3 times and converted to cast iron burners and they are shot now in 2 years.

Does Weber use a higher quality stainless burner?

I have read the best burners are cast aluminum but god they are $4K and up!!

Was going to pick this up in a week or so any thoughts??

Thanks
B

If you are looking for Weber Gas testimonials you have come to the right place. If I had room I would add one to the arsenal ... may just add on so I can

I've been cooking off a Weber Genesis Silver for almost 15 years. Weber builds a solid grill, go for it!

Any burner blow out problems?

I heard in the lower price range Weber uses a cheaper stainless burner

I have had a 3 burner Weber for close to 30 years, have yet to replace the burners, the grates, or even the ignitor. Even if the newer lower price Webers use a cheaper stainless Steel burner, they are not as cheap as other grills out there. With all my friends i tell them to buy a Weber's, maybe 10% do, and I only hear good things about their grilling experiences, the other 90% all I ever hear is that their brand new gear has crapped out on them, and they have to spend more money on it to get fixed or whatever. If they would have waited and saved a bit more, they would have saved in the long run with buying the more expensive Weber.

Think about it?!?

If you read the product spec...it say that it's made with "low grade stainless" ! Most likely made in china.

Here is what happened, I was looking at the Weber Genesis and it is unreal looks like jewelry and is heavy duty.
Depot guy comes up and say you really need to look in the clearance section there is the Charbroil for $200 off and it is the last one in a box!!!

I thought shit that is an unreal price it is 1/2 of the Weber.

So I bought it and said I'll be back to pick it up when I have my truck, I was with a buddy in his car.

I came back and started on the research and sure enough I know the type stainless they are talkin about it is shit tin as far as I'm concerned.

Also rust out problems at the IR grates keeping propane from being ignighted.

No worries just did it as a safety net before someone else bought it and I missed out

I'll credit the buy towards the Weber......
