Old grill died.  Time for a new one.  I like Weber.  Had a charcoal Weber & the one that died was a propane Weber that had been rebuilt twice already.

Pic of new grill:


Weber Genesis EP-320 Gas


Did some reading & found out that the stainless version of this grill is nowhere near all stainless.  So I got a black grill.  With stainless stuff.  Black grills cook hottest!

This one is natural gas - no more propane trips for the grill.

Going to Hawaii this Friday so it won't be in until we get back most likely.  Will have some burgers & dogs all ready to go then... maybe.


"he Weber® Genesis® EP-320™ grill adds Steel Gray to the line of bold colors and is perfect for those who love the look of stainless steel but don’t want the upkeep that comes with owning a stainless steel appliance. This gas grill features an enclosed cart with painted steel doors, stainless steel handles, and accent-colored painted side and rear panels. The 7mm diameter stainless steel rod cooking grates are excellent at creating wonderful sear marks. The legendary cooking system, rated at 42,000 BTUs, includes three stainless steel burners, porcelain-enameled Flavorizer® bars, and an electronic Crossover® ignition system with a center mounted thermometer. The Genesis® EP-320™ grill also features a 12,000 BTU flush-mount side burner, two stainless steel work surfaces that are both stylist and provide plenty of room for all grilling necessities, six tool holders, and a total cooking area of 637 sq. inches. Liquid propane models also come in black, copper, brick red and green finishes. Natural gas models are available in black and copper finish only. MSRP: $949 (liquid propane), $969 (natural gas)."

I have never grilled bananas.  Those look good.  Do you cook them in the skins?  Like corn on the cob in the husk?


Drinking plans for Hawaii include Firerock & margaritas & cold beers & wine & beer & cold beers.

Yes, in the skins, after you gently open them and stuff them with chocolate and reeses pieces or whatever things.  I do not like sardines in my mine nor fish assholes and prolly not any assholes of any type. 

My favorite is a little brown sugar, some chocolate chips and some myers dark rum, can be flamed for dramatic effect but please do not set yourself on fire.  Uncerimoniusly plopped onto a plate with some blue bell niller ice cream it is very good for elevating ones blood sugar to the 4 digit area.

While you are away in Hawaii I will drink Firerock & margaritas & cold beers & wine & beer & cold beers but I will smoke some cigars too.

I regret I did not know of the grilling of bananas until now.  My life is incomplete.  A good flaming rum would be just the ticket.  No Richard Pryor marathons.  That will be one of the first experiments on the new grill.  With Blue Bell!  Your taste in ice cream is excellent!

Yes, the smoking of cigars!  I will take a cache of maduro smokes to be enjoyed on the pristine beaches or shorelines or some damn corner of the hotel where they allow smokers to migrate to since Marriott is smoke free (with $200 fines for miscreants).


Some descriptions say the flavorizer bars on this grill are porcelain.  Others say they are stainless.  A minor controversy of inaccuracy.  The bananas will not care, either way...

My turbo grill has porcelain briquettes thingies ensnared in stainless cages...It has worked well, I roasted 2 dozen chicken arms and grilled some french fries that were unfried yesterday between monsoons but no nanners...I grilled popsickles with major failure and will not try that again although the cigar smoking and Acme Pale Ale swilling went well.

The standard model has porcelin flavorizers and the upgraded model has Stainless steel )on the outside they look like the same model).

We only sell the upgraded model though only 50.00 diiference in price.


great grill pick

The only drawback I see with the Weber grill is the burners go left / right instead of front / back.  This makes it nearly useless for low heat indirect cooking (which I do a lot of).  I have a Napolean PB450SBR.  Might not be available in FL.  They're made in Canada.  I love the three burners.  It's real easy to get the temp dialed in.

The Weber grill's benifit is that very feature,
the downside is not being to shut down the whole width. (for smaller needs like 1 burger)
Indirect cooking is relatively easy on the Weber, just shut down middle and rear burners and run front only.

most just shut down middle burner.

The greatest benefit to the Weber is it's even cooking front to back.
most grills are hottest at the rear and there is no control for that.
Weber you can control rear heat by either turning it down or shutting it down.

I am the self appointed Grill Guru (should be "Grill Czar" under today's (political enviorment)

Do not get me wrong the Weber is not the best grill made, but at the price point they are hard to beat.

I sell/sold  Lynx, DCS, Monogram, Tech, Broilmaster, Weber, Green Egg, Capital, Ducane , Dacor. Wolf, Thermador, Shore line (gone), Holland (not so much)

Damn, That grill is sweet. One question, does the gas come in from the right or left?  Wink I did love my Weber though, that was a great grill.

So what do you recommend.

I trashed my Weber after 18 years this spring and am in the market.
Been looking at the stainless grills (we live 2-3 miles from the beach).

Most of the grills I have seen have way to large of an opening in the back - lets all the heat out. Some have an almost 2" slot!.

Any thoughts - opinions on the Weber Summit series? Particullary this one "Weber 2740301 Summit S-470"

Thanks, appears I made a good purchase.  Buying this from the local Ace Hardware Store since when I can, I buy local.  Plus they give good personal service even when all I am looking for is a bolt or a washer.  They will put it together for me also, and otherwise I would be getting it from an online company in a box.  And they give me double points on this purchase.

Their website says stainless flavorizer bars - must be what I am getting.  Those things work very well - after they burn out I replace them & it keeps the junk away from the burners.

I shut the middle burner down (on the old Weber) for most things I grill & used the middle mostly.  Back does tend to be a little hotter so if I am using the entire surface I turn that burner down.   

I was trying to keep this purchase under $1,000 & this seemed to be the best for the money from what I wa reading & from friends.  If I had known you were in that biz I would have asked you.  You sell some great brands!
