1. Weber Performer Deluxe
There are three models in the brand’s Performer series, all 22-inch charcoal grills: Weber Performer, Weber Performer Premium, and Performer Deluxe. We chose Performer Deluxe. It is the highest-rated and the best-selling among the three. It also received five times as many reviews as the other two.
The electronic Touch-N Go gas ignition system is a unique advantage of the Deluxe over its brothers. With this system, cooking is so easy: all you have to do is place your meat, push the ignition button, and let the grill do its thing.
The cooking area of this grill is 363 square inches. This fair amount allows you to grill food for 4-6 people. In burger count, thirteen patties.
The Performer Deluxe makes your grilling experience easy. There’s no need to get another thermometer since the built-in thermometer and a removable LCD cook timer does the work for you. Use them for temperature monitoring while you’re busy with other things.
A stainless steel cart with wheels houses the grill. A side table, three built-in hooks, and bottom rack are some useful additions. There’s no need to worry about separate food prep tables with this grill.
A 22-inch porcelain-enameled bowl and tuck-away lid, heat resistant lid handle, wireframe, and Weber’s Gourmet BBQ System grate are also lovely additions. These are assurances that your grill is heavy-duty and would withstand years of use.
You don’t have to worry about cleanup since the aluminized stainless steel One-Touch cleaning system has got you covered. It swipes away ashes into the removable ash catcher.
The Performer Deluxe gives plenty of features for hassle-free BBQ- all for a wallet-friendly price.
2. Weber Spirit II E-310
Weber’s Spirit II Series is their latest release. Spirit II focuses on more “compact sizes for balconies, rooftops, and gardens, so that you’re never sacrificing amazing food for space,” says their website.
The Weber Spirit II, E-310 Gas Grill, features the new GS4 technology, which includes four key techs, namely, the Infinity Ignition, Stainless Steel Burners, Flavorizer Bars, and the Grease Management System.
The E-310 Gas Grill’s Infinity Ignition uses a heavy-duty wire coating. Meanwhile, upgraded burner tubes of stainless steel and porcelain-enameled Flavorizer makes the perfect setup for cooking lumps of delicious meat.
The Spirit E-310 gives you three burners that heat a big cooking area of 529 square inches with 30,000 BTU. It can let you cook a couple of burgers and steaks for the whole family with the porcelain-enameled, cast-iron, stainless grates cooking surface.
There are two fuel options: liquid propane and natural gas. If you want the liquid propane unit, Spirit II E-310 supplies an easy to read propane tank scale so you can quickly check the gas. There’s also a built-in thermometer and a stainless steel heat deflector that come in handy.
If you opt for the natural gas, you first need a natural gas line; if you don’t have it, stick to liquid propane.
The Spirit II E-310 sports an open cart of porcelain-enamel lidded, stainless steel with two wheels. There are two side tables for food prep and storage.
An upgrade for the Spirit II is the new Grease Management System that makes the unit easier to clean. You can also now connect your unit to iGrill 3, but you have to buy it separately. An iGrill 3 is an app-connected thermometer that lets you check on your grilling status anytime.
3. Weber Genesis II E-335
Another model with upgraded features and stainless steel parts from the Genesis line is the Genesis II E-335 Gas Grill. It’s a grill with cabinet design and painted steel door. Should you want a larger cooking space than the previous grill, you’re going to love this. It provides a total of 669 square inches cooking area.
The Genesis II E-335 has a high BTU of 39,000. While the sear station burner has a BTU of 9,000, and a side burner has 12,000. You can use the side burner for sauteing vegetables or simmering BBQ sauce. The sear station, on the other hand, is an intense heat zone perfect for sear marks.
The E-335 also has a tuck-away warming rack and stainless steel heat deflectors.
Just like other Genesis II models, this E-335 has the new GS4 grilling system (discussed in the previous item), built-in thermometer, and porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grates and lids. The material of the cooking grates is your key to superior heat retention.
Other updates for the E-335 are the reversible grates that have a thin and a thick side. The former is meant for delicate foods such as fish and shrimps, while the latter is for meat and sear marks.
You can choose liquid propane or natural gas to fuel your Weber grill. You have to buy a 20-pound propane tank separately, though.
In its high-quality build, you get four wheels for effortless mobility. Two of the wheels are all-weather wheels, and the other two are swivel locking caster wheels. You can use the two side tables on each side and six tool hooks for keeping your plates, grilling tools, and spices.
4. Weber Summit S-470
Representing the Summit series is the Weber Summit S-470 Gas Grill in an enclosed cart design. It has a high BTU of 48,000 for its four main stainless steel burners. This grill, compared to the previous one, clearly produces a lot more!
Asides from the main burners, the Summit S-470 also has a sear station heater with 10,600 BTU per hour input. What’s more?
A stainless steel smoker box and smoker burner have a 6,800 BTU per hour input, a rear-mounted, infrared rotisserie burner produces 10,600 BTU, and finally, a side burner gives 12,000 BTU. These side burners let you multitask while grilling. Time is of the essence!
With a primary cooking area of 468 square inches and a warming rack area of 112 square inches, you get a massive total of 580 square inches of space. With the high BTU burners and the generous cooking space that the S-470 has to offer, and you can cook enough meals to fill your party’s tummy.
The Summit S-470 also makes grilling convenient as you get two side tables and six tool hooks. There’s also an individual burner ignition system, stainless steel Flavorizer bars, and a spit fork rotisserie attachment.
On top of that, you have four lighted control knobs, stainless steel doors, chrome-plated handles, a pair of front-locking casters, and a pair of back swivel locking caster wheels.
Other highlights that the S-470 has included a stainless-steel shroud with a built-in thermometer, two stainless-steel work areas, and a Grill Out light.
Designed for use with natural gas (NG) or a 20-pound LP tank (sold separately), the S-470 measures 30 inches long by 66 inches wide by 57 inches high and carries a five-year limited warranty. A ten-foot flexible hose for NG installation is also included.
5. Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker
Smoking is another way to get delicious, tender barbeque. One of the best smokers in the market, the Smokey Mountain, comes from Weber. You can choose among three sizes of the Weber Smokey Mountain (WSM) Cooker Smoker: 14.5″, 18.5″, and 22.5″ (diameter). We think that 18-inch is the “one-size-fits-all” smoker. It’s not too small, not too big. It’s their best-selling size.
The Smokey Mountain is a bullet-shaped smoker that comes in its uniformed black color and long-lasting porcelain and chrome coatings. This coating goes to its bowl, lid, center section, and water pan. The quality is, therefore, durable, just like any other Weber product.
With the 18 inches model, you can BBQ enough for your family gatherings with its 481 square inches of cooking space. With a lightweight of 39 pounds, you would still be able to lift the smoker by yourself when you want to move it.
The 18″ smoker may be bulkier in your car than the 14″ model; it is still portable enough to bring it along in road trips.
This smoker is charcoal fueled, and Weber has also provided a secure access door to load your charcoal or wood chunks quickly.
Other main features of each WSM are the plated steel cooking grates, heavy-gauge steel charcoal grates, the charcoal chamber, silicone temperature grommet, a rust-resistant aluminum fuel door, a rust-resistant bowl-shaped aluminum heat shield, and the built-in lid smoker thermometer.
The Smokey Mountain is also compatible with the Weber wireless thermometer, which you can buy separately. A wireless thermometer would allow you to put your meat in, set it, and forget it (for a while) so you can multitask- maybe make a sauce.
Another plus point with the WSM is that you can also use it for cold smoking and even as a grill.
6. Weber Spirit II E-210
Another product from the Weber Spirit II line is the E-210 Gas Grill. It is a smaller, grill version of the previously mentioned model.
The E-210 has a smaller cooking surface of 450 sq inches. It only has two burners and 26,500 BTU per hour input. With that said, everything else is almost the same.
The Spirit II E-210 features the GS4 technology that includes an infinity ignition, stainless steel burner tubes, porcelain-enameled Flavorizer, and a new Grease Management System.
This grill also comes with a porcelain-enameled lid and porcelain-enameled cast-iron, stainless grates. Other features include a built-in thermometer and a stainless steel heat deflector.
The two fuel choices are liquid propane and natural gas.
The E-210 is well-built with its heavy-duty stainless steel construction and open cart design with a pair of wheels. Besides, two side tables and six tool hooks enhance its convenience. The left table measures 38 inches wide.
You can also connect your E-210 to an iGrill 3 device (bought separately) to make monitoring more effortless.
7. Weber Summit S-670
The big cooking area of 769 square inches, six stainless steel burners, 60,800 BTU, and a heavyweight of 157 pounds should tell you how massive and heavy-duty the Weber Summit S-670 Gas Grill is.
On top of the main burners, you get a sear station with 10,600 BTU, a flush-mounted side burner with 12,000 BTU, a stainless steel smoker box with 6,800 BTU, and an infrared rotisserie rear burner with 10,600 BTU.
The cast aluminum cook boxes are durable, efficient, low-maintenance, and extremely heat-resistant. Additionally, the shape of the cook box, combined with the shroud, allows for proper circulation of heat around food for even cooking whether you’re using direct or indirect heat.
You also get a center-mounted thermometer, LED lighted control knobs, stainless steel Flavorizer cooking grates, a 145-square inch warming rack, and a stainless steel grease tray with catch pan.
With its stainless steel grill cart build, you choose to get between a liquid propane model or a natural gas model. You also get a chrome-plated cast-aluminum handle with four wheels.
8. Weber Q 1200
One of Weber’s most portable grills is the Q1200. It is so small and light-weighted, weighing only 30 pounds. It has only one stainless steel burner that produces 8,500 BTU per hour for its 189 square inches of cooking area.
It features an easy-start electronic ignition, and a hood-mounted thermometer and a full temperature control valve. It also has porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grates, and a cast aluminum lid and body.
This portable grill comes to your doorstep fully assembled to spare you some trouble. Despite its size, you still get two folding side tables that come in handy for food prep.
9. Weber Genesis II E-310
With the Genesis II, just like the Spirit II, you get the new GS4. The grills from these lines are all iGrill 3 ready. The iGrill3 is a digital Bluetooth thermometer. It monitors your food from start to end, displaying the real-time temperature and fuel level on your mobile device.
Weber Genesis II E-310 has a grilling surface area of 669 square inches powered by 39,000 BTUs of heat from the stainless steel burners. It comes in an open frame cart design and weighs 133 pounds.
What’s great about this is that the porcelain-enameled, cast-iron cooking grates are reversible. You can be even more creative with your dish this way. The thin side of the cooking grate is ideal for delicate food, while the other is mainly for sear marks to enhance the ﬂavor of your food.
With its build, you also get two side tables- one on each side. There are six tool hooks for storing your, well, tools. And, as like the others in this list, it comes with four wheels.
Another similar feature from the Spirit II series is that you can also choose either liquid propane or natural gas as fuel. You have to buy a 20-pound propane tank separately.
10. Weber Original Kettle Premium
Original versions are always the best, how much more an upgraded and premium kind of the original? Here’s the Weber Original Kettle Premium Charcoal Grill.
It comes in the well known original design that sparked Weber’s popularity in the industry. With the dimensions of 40 inches high, 23 inches wide, and 25 inches deep, and a weight of 32.3 pounds, the Weber Original Kettle Premium offers 363 square inches of cooking space.
It features the easy to clean one-touch cleaning system, removable ash catcher, and a built-in lid thermometer. You also get plated steel hinged cooking grate with this unit. Along with that, the porcelain-enameled lid and bowl can retain heat well and won’t rust.
The Original Kettle Premium allows you to control the temperature by adjusting the dampers. You can also arrange charcoal for direct or indirect grilling.
This build gives you two hooks for you to conveniently place your cooking tools. Asides from tool hooks, you may also hang the lid on its side.
Final Verdict – Which of These is the Most Preferable?
Weber is an exciting grill for your backyard or even for your new business. They offer an extensive ten years of warranty for all their products, giving their buyers peace of mind. They provide lots of accessories, too, such as iGrill 3, wireless thermometer, and grill covers.
For picnic or camping, the Weber Smokey Mountain or the Q 1200 is the best. If you want a grill for your homes, you can choose anything from the Genesis or the Spirit Series. For a restaurant-grade grill, check out the Summit series.
Whatever you need, Weber has a grill for that.
I spent most of my life fascinated by food, and the outdoors. I can’t think of a more fitting combo that leads to mastering the art of BBQ one day. I ended up decent enough to grill the perfect burger and choose the best equipment after years of improvement. I create this website for outdoor cooking enthusiasts, who are fueled by interest but lacking in help, feel educated when they leave because I see my past clueless self in them.
