Review: Weber Genesis Special Edition EP-310 Propane Gas Grill


We recently upgraded this Summer from our Weber Q 200 gas grill when we finally got the Kitchen Contraptions porch upgraded and made a bit larger to accommodate seating and most of all a larger grill. After much deliberation we went with the Weber Genesis Special Edition EP-310 Propane Gas Grill. We loved the look of the grill right away, and we knew we could get the Weber rotisserie attachment for it, along with the Special Edition Genesis having some improvements in the drip tray area and other niceties like a built in gas gauge.


Weber Genesis Special Edition EP-310 Propane Gas Grill Features:

  • 637 sq. in. cooking space
  • 42K BTUs
  • 3 stainless steel burners
  • Porcelain lid with stainless steel trim
  • 7MM stainless steel rod cooking grates (we chose not to use these and buy additional cast iron grates from Weber - as we prefer that surface and the way it seasons the bars)
  • Stainless steel flavorizer bars
  • Stainless steel wire warming rack
  • Electronic ignition
  • Stainless steel working surface
  • Tank not included
  • Color we chose was Black

One thing as noted above, we didn't use the stainless steel cooking grates, but instead decided to get an additional set of the cast iron grates to cook on. We haven't liked stainless steel cooking grates when we've used them, and this was our decision. We like the way the cast iron grates season, and we just like the look as well.

One thing we really like about the Weber Genesis Special Edition EP-310 Propane Gas Grill is the temperature gauge in the front, and how quickly and easily it starts and warms up. Also - you can really get this grill hot - in the 600F range if you're patient, and the day is warm enough.

You can see the drip tray stand has a nice storage area, and is also reinforced. With the flavor bars
and then the long tilted drip tray, to the drip pan - no flare ups.

Missing features of our grill given the 3 burners is the side burner for cooking. We decided we would really not ever use one, but we have used the side burner when on vacation to steam lobsters - however that's a vacation thing, and we are mostly a meat and vegetables grilling crew. Also - we really wanted to focus on using the rotisserie attachment to make roast chicken, legs of lamb, and other rotisserie wonders.

To use the Weber rotisserie attachment (sold separately) you'll need some chicken. :-)

The results are amazing and the grill was amazing.

We really love our new Weber Genesis Special Edition EP-310 Propane Gas Grill and the Weber rotisserie attachment. The grilling results are amazing, and there has been nothing but good results in the past 4 months. After much research, we think you'll be happy with any of the Genesis models.
