Which Weber Grill to buy

Hi guys....trying to decide between a few grills....my last couple have been very budgeted purchases, and I suppose this one is too, but I'm splurging a little to hopefully get a longer lasting grill.

Little info: I grill about twice a week, live in Missouri, so I grill about 6 months out of the year. I am wanting a gas grill, and often times cook for small gatherings. (although grilling surface isn't a deal breaker)

I'm looking to keep it under $500.00....currently looking at a Weber Spirit E-210 or the E-310.

Wondering what everyone thought......

I reeeeeeeaaaaaly can't stress enough to go a bit bigger and better.
Go with the Genesis you WIL NOT regret it!!!
Extra $199 spread over the 20 years it will last you is peanuts!!

Here is a pic of mine

Not always but on this one I agree with Bosko on this one, you are not buying any grill you are buying a Weber and it will last 20+ years.

BTW - Welcome to the forum.

Go for the bigger surface -consider that how you use this may change over time and you will own it for a good long while.

I have a Weber Genesis Silver which I have cooked on in MN year round, never covered except with new snow, and that was a gift from my father-in-law (Thanks Pops!) about 13 years ago.
