Genesis® II LX S-240 Gas Grill (Natural Gas) is rated out of 5 by 19.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Burt from The good, bad, and the ugly of Genesis ll LX S-240 I received the Genesis ll as a gift, about a month ago and I’m generally pleased with the my new Weber. I have owned a Weber in the past; familiar with all Webers and the competition, this grill seemed to make the most sense for my interest and price point. Hands down, the best feature is the grill light that came with it; the best feature ever. The general functions incl a side burner, burner lighting controls and knob lites are excellent as well, and the minimal flaring during grilling, is very reasonable; not as good as my last Weber but pretty depenable that way. The overall size of the grill and grilling area is ideal for a covered deck; a modest lanai area and surface grilling area that satisfies plenty of grilling room for a snallngroup party. Getting use to a two burner vs a 3 burner grill takes some time andvheat regulation is not as good as a 3 burner. As a point if interest, I typically grill on average, 3 times a week; the side burner, at least 4 times. The side burner keeps the fragrant cooking like onions out of the kitchen. The smart temp feature function is not important to me but I suppose, a good feature if you spend the bucks for the probe. I would not own a grill without a side burner and this has a good. As for the negatives, other than the fire box, it’s built cheaply. The handy fold down side table is flimsey and annoyingly so. It dislodges too easily when moving the grill and there are some sharp tiny edges. Standing in front of the grill offers excellent esthetics. If you walk around it, expect disappointment. With all the dedicated engineering on the design, it looks like Weber gave up on its design finishes. The natural gas grill like mine, has a grossly exposed gas line hookup on the side that just smacks you in the face the side angle. If should have been designed to hide it better; bring it out the back and under. I cannot get use to looking at that. I would have gotten a 3 burner grill hands down, if they still had a closed accessible base. The compartment to me is invaluable on a grill. To fix all the issues is to get a grill that is 50% more expensive. With all this said, Weber was the best choice for the money I think but the complaints are on the forefront and I think, valid. And last, yrs ago, Weber use to send cooking recipe booklets which I kept in a binder. Not the same convenience having tgat stuff on line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MikeB from High Quality This is my fourth Weber gas grill (we have the six-burner behemoth at our cabin). All have been great, but the improvements in the latest generation of Genesis grills significant. In particular, their new burner system virtually eliminates differences in grilling temperatures across the surface. Everything about it is great. Certainly more expensive than most others, but definitely worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by hondo88 from Hot Hot Hot Just got the grill about two weeks ago. My old nat gas line was small, so the plumber recommended I put in a 1/2" INTERIOR DIAMETER gas line. I'm glad I did. The grill gets up to 500 degrees within minutes and tops out at 600 degrees. It sears meat within seconds and really, really, keeps the juices inside. So far, great all around.
