Weber gas grill options

Spirit E310
  • 424 cooking area
  • 105 warming
  • 32,000 BTU
Spirit E320
  • same as 310 plus:
  • 12,000 BTU side burner
Genesis E310
  • 507 cooking area
  • 130 warming
  • 38,000 BTU
Genesis E330
  • same as 310 plus:
  • 12,000 BTU side burner
  • 10,000 BTU sear station
They're all 3 burners, as the model numbers imply.

Since Webers last 10+ years, trying to plan ahead. I'm thinking about the Genesis 330 for the larger cooking surface and sear station. I had to Google searing, and I now know that I prefer seared meat.

Does the larger cooking surface make a useful difference (507 vs 424)?

Do you actually use the side burner? What for?

How well does the sear burner work? How much can you sear at one time?

I was shopping for a grill last year and had pretty much settled on the genesis 310 but never did pull the trigger. The number one thing I look for is how hot can it get, for a good sear, and is it designed to not flare up when cooking someing fatty.

I have never used a side burner. I can't see using up the propane to heat beans or something else when the kitchen is ten steps away; maybe if it's hooked to the natural gas line?

The old beat up gril I have been using has a rear burner for the rotisserie and that sees a fair amount of action. I might keep that grill around and use it just for that.

How many people do you need to cook for typically?

Currently, 5 or 6 for a get-together. More for a full on party. Just the 2 of us on a regular basis. The E210 my in-laws have would be plenty for right now. I'm just thinking ahead since Weber's last a decade or more.

i have never used a side burner either. i have always found that with grills, planning ahead never works. if the searing station is a feature you want, thats the one to for. other than that, don't be shocked if someday you find yourself with another smaller grill for those get togethers.
