How Much Food Will Fit On Your Genesis II?

How Much Food Will Fit On Your Genesis II?

Genesis II and Genesis II LX come in either a 2, 3, 4 or 6 burner model.  Whether you’re grilling a romantic steak dinner for two, mouthwatering chicken for the family, a whole bunch of bratwurst for the big game or just a burger for yourself Genesis II has a grill for you!  And hey, after a long day of work sometimes you deserve a burger!

When I grill I’m usually grilling for two.  Our 6 month old daughter would love some ribs and brisket as well but she’ll have to wait a little while!  We often like to have the in-laws and friends over to grill and entertain.  Based on our needs I went with a 3-burner model.  That is plenty big for my wife and I and it still offers the space for when we have company over.  These are grills your family can grow into and we offer a Genesis II for every stage in your life!
