First impressions of the Genesis II E-310 are very good; it looks solid, well built, spacious, and shiny. Available in either propane or natural gas, this reliable grill covers most of the bases the average griller requires.
Let’s start with the burners. With three available burners, it’s easy to set up your temperature zones for searing and indirect cooking. This means you can get those grill marks and then shift your steak over to finish cooking through, or you can leave a roast on to cook by convection.
Unlike on cheaper grills, you’ll get consistent, even heat along the entire length of the burner – no more hot spots near the back! You’ll even get a bit of smoke added thanks to the flavorizer bars catching and burning off the drippings.
Speaking of drippings, anything that gets past the bars will be collected in a handy drip tray easily accessed under the cookbox.
Below the grease collector, you’ll find a convenient shelf (one of two) for storing your tools. The tank mounts under the right-side shelf, freeing up a lot of room. There are also six handy hooks for hanging your BBQ tools while you cook.
The cooking grates are made of porcelain-enameled cast iron and will not only conduct heat evenly, but they’ll also last for years with proper care. The rest of the grill is made of stainless steel, and the lid is also porcelain-enameled.
