A signature sign of great grilled food is dark, bold sear marks. When we created our line of Genesis II and Genesis II LX models we also designed a special sear grate that makes it easier than ever to put some professional looking sear marks on your food that are sure to impress your guests and your taste buds.
Made of porcelain enameled cast iron, this sear grate retains heat exceptionally well, and the crisscross pattern gives you those diamond shaped sear marks that will have everyone at your next backyard BBQ convinced that you’re a bona fide Grill Master.
They are designed for use with our 3, 4 & 6 burner Genesis II and Genesis II LX models, and depending on which model you own, the grate is setup in one of two ways.
First you’ll need to take out one of the cooking grates on either the left or right side of the grill.
For a 3 or 6 burner model, you’d then place the sear grate into the space left empty by the cooking grate that was removed. You’d want to position the grate with the small “feet” facing upwards.
For a 4 burner model, the sear grate will be placed into the space left empty by the cooking grate, but it will need to be orientated with the “feet” facing down. The sear grate is also going to slightly overlap the cooking grate to the left by a few inches.
It’s also possible to use two sear grates at once, just make sure to leave the middle grate in place for 4 and 6 burner models.
