Genesis II Features
Under the flavorizer bars, you will find Weber’s stainless steel burners, featuring the new tapered design. Since grills tend to get hotter towards the back, these burners are tapered so that they produce less heat towards the back of the grill, leading to more consistent temperatures across the entire cooking surface.
Each of the burners are rated for 12,000 BTUS, for a total of 48,000 BTUS of cooking power. The burners are each lit with push button electronic ignition.
Beneath the Burner
Beneath the burners, the Genesis II special edition features stainless steel baffles, these work to direct the drippings to the grease tray beneath the grill. They also work to reflect the heat from the burners toward the cooking grids. Just like the cooking grids, and flavorizer bars, these come porcelain enameled on the standard Weber Genesis II.
The lower portion of the grill body is cast aluminum, which means it will resist corrosion for countless years of grilling. The lid of the Weber Genesis II is double walled,
providing insulation for temperature stability. For ease of temperature monitoring, the lid also features a thermometer. When it comes to wirelessly monitor the temperature of the cooking process,
The Weber Genesis II line has you covered, they come fully compatible with the IGrill 3.
