Any good Toolmonger knows that the best part of a project is the celebratory beer and barbecue when it’s finally finished.  A major project requires a major celebration, and a major celebration requires a major grill. If you’re in need of a new gas grill this season, take a look at the Weber Genesis E-310 in espresso brown.

The grill sports three beefy stainless steel burners and a massive 637 square inches of total cooking area, as well as heavy-duty porcelain-enameled cast-iron grates. This is also one of the first Webers to include their new electronic crossover ignition system — prior to this season, most Weber products still used the piezo ignition system.

You can buy the Weber E-310 in espresso brown exclusively at Lowe’s.  If the design looks familiar, that’s because it’s identical to the Weber E-310 grill sold at Home Depot and Sears — only the color “espresso brown” is exclusive to Lowe’s.  That’s marketing for ya. You’ll find this grill on sale for $700 no matter what color you get it in.

    Did you guys ever do the BBQ grill round up? You guys talked about almost completing one in a podcast some time last year.

    I’m no BBQ expert – and I have been sucker-punched in the past buying grills that did not last- but I looked at this grill last weekend – but decided to spend the considerable extra bucks for a S-420 – that HD was discounting by 10% for veterans. What I did not like about the Gensis series was the side to side orientation of the burners.

    Can anyone tell me why Weber thought it was a good idea to put the controls facing up, so that rain water and melting snow could have a better chance of pooling and dripping onto the valve?

    This grill looks almost identical to the Kenmore grill my girlfriend just bought on sale at Sears (except for the controls on the front panel) for $450, except the Kenmore has better casters, it doesn’t have the hose hanging down off the side, and it has a side burner (did I miss that on this grill?).

    Oh, and the Kenmore blue matches the race car…

    You didn’t miss it, this grill doesn’t have a side burner.

    And I am familiar with the Kenmore grill you are talking about, it’s one of our best sellers so far this season. Although I must admit, I was surprised that out of the 4 color options available, vanilla seems to be the most popular.

    I have a Genesis, except it’s not in the exclusive brown color and mine has the side burner.

    Some would argue that having the knobs facing up is to encourage buying the optional $50 cover, but I’m guessing Weber put the knobs facing up so they don’t get bumped when you roll the grill out of a crowded garage.

    The only problem I have with it is that I miss the charcoal cooked taste of the old Weber kettle grill.
