I have owned many grills in my life and I thought they were all ok and did the job. But this grill, the Weber 6621001 E-320 natural gas grill, is like Tim “the tool man” Taylor built it himself. Natural gas, three burners, huge cooking surface, and stainless steel made me want to go ugh ugh ugh.
The best way to describe this grill is the only thing missing is the food.
Complete with 38,000 BTU grill 12,000 BTU side burners. A total of 637 sq. in. of cooking space 507 sq. in on primary cooking rack and 130 square inches on the warming rack allows for large meals to be prepared with ease. Making it even easier to cook you entire meal outside there are also three stainless steel burners.
Additionally, the Genesis E-320 has an outside thermometer right in the center very easy to read, six tool holders built onto the grill, and porcelain coating on the grill racks making them practically non-stick. There are separate ignitions for all three burners and the grill I have gets the grill from 0 to 700 degrees in ten minutes and to 450 degrees in just five minutes.
The controls are placed right on the front, not on the sides like their older models. You are also able to control if you want even heat the whole way across the grill or if you want some cooler spots for cooking different kinds of meets or vegetables at the same time.
Even better this grill is less expensive to use than others. Best of all the Weber E320 is safer due to its natural gas, coming from a ten foot flexible hose, makes set up easy to attach if you have the input. It comes with an incredible instruction book very easy to read and very informative as far as answering all my questions.
I love the fact that grill does it all. It is incredible easy to operate. My absolutely favorite thing about this grill was assembling it for my father. I was so scared that it would take a team of all my friends to get this monster assembled. Well I was wrong. It took me only about an hour and a half to assemble it. It blew my mind that I only needed my wife’s help once to put the top on and line it up correctly. I would say over all, this was the easiest grill I have ever assembled outside of the cheap charcoals.
It is heavy but you know what’s funny is that I like this feature. Living in the Midwest we have extremely windy days and on those days my patio furniture blows all over the yard and deck. But this grill just stands there. It does not move an inch. As heavy as the grill I was worried about its portability. Surprisingly, it moves very easily around my property on its wheels. Simply lift the end and moves like a dream.
I like that each side burner is on a different controller and can cook different items on it. I have boiled pasta sautéed mushrooms and onions, and cooked a can of corn at the same time while cooking some burgers. With so much kitchen mess saved, it is hard to tell if my mother or my father this feature more! The less mess for her, the happier he is.
After a few months the porcelain racks started to rust. Although I did think back to all the grills I have owned and cannot remember one grill I owned that did not have that same problem. I was able to order a replacement from Weber and now keep the grill in the garage. It has now been well over a year of heavy usage and this is no longer an issue.
