Quick Summary

Weber comes through with one of the most satisfying grills out on the market right now for plenty of outstanding reasons, the kind that will no doubt bring a smile to the faces of many barbecue enthusiasts! What this grill offers is simplicity, anyone can operate this grill with minimal fuss which is arguably its best feature in our opinion. An idea grill option for anyone out there looking to cook for multiple people, ideal for family get-togethers in the sun!

Alternative option: George Foreman grills.

Key Features

This grill comes fitted with the finest features, the kind that will turn your bog-standard barbecues into something special. The Gs4 grilling system here offers improved ignition over some of your more basic grills. Not only that, but the grease management system has been designed to make cleaning up your grill easier. Weber has apparently thought of it all from this 529 square inch grill, one that offers 30,000 BTU-per-hour!

The open cart design allows you to easily switch this grill from its covered form to its cooking form rather seamlessly. Porcelain-enameled, cast iron cooking grates serve as the perfect base for you to cook your food on-top-of, foods of various kinds depending on the occasion; kebabs, burgers, steaks, you name it, this will cook it!

Yet another highlight comes in the form of a warming rack, the kind that can be used to keep food warm as you go about cooking something else — most tend to place buns on this grill to toast over! Weighing in at around 110 pounds, this grill is probably one of the easiest grills to transport specifically because of the wheels found at the bottom of each leg.

Pros

The Space: Most grills are very limited in terms of the size and scope of the unit, why that comes down to various factors, although the most common appears to be a lack of ingenuity from the manufacturer. It seems that Weber went big with their plan, hence this 529 square inch grill!

Ease of use: Propane Gas grills have always been relatively easy to operate, you turn the dial, hit the gas and away you go! But for some reason Weber’s Gas Grill just feels easier to use — perhaps this is down to the size of this beast and the power it generates, or maybe we’re just satisfied with the quality of the grill, who knows?

Grease Management: Anyone who’s owned a grill in the past will know just how annoying grease can be when you’re grilling something. Drops of grease that aren’t vaporized by the Flavorizer Bars will be funneled away from the burners into the disposable drip tray, a tray that can be removed and emptied rather easily.

Cons

Potentially Confusing: This grill is ideal for those who like cooking for multiple people, those that are buying this grill simply because they like the look of it might find it all a tad confusing at first. There’s a lot of buttons and hidden features in this grill, we just hope it isn’t too confusing to those who don’t understand the importance of certain features!

Who Is It Suitable For?

Weber’s 45010001 Black Spirit II E-310 LP Gas Grill is the perfect family grill, why? Because it is big enough to cater to dozens of individuals at any given time! With this grill, you have access to endless amounts of space, which only helps those who are preparing food for more guests. If you are someone who likes to impress your friends and dazzle your neighbors, then this will be the grill for you for obvious reasons!

Why We Like It

When we like to invite our friends over for food in the middle of summer, we like to cook comfortably while holding onto our conversations. This grill not only comes with some of the finest features to date, but it’s big enough to handle a lot of food at any given time — something no backyard chef should live without in our opinion. What this grill offers is a smorgasbord of different options, and to that, from all of us here at Product Expert, we say thank you, Weber!
