I love my Genesis Silver. Even though it's 12 years old, it grills just as well and reliably as the day I got it. My Weber maintains heat perfectly and the flavor bars produce a great smoke flavor. The original burner is still in excellent shape and all that I've had to do is replace the original grates. Before I got the Weber, I made the mistake of purchasing cheaper brands and they never lasted more than a few years. Weber is the best.
