You probably already know that you're in safe hands with a Weber Genesis, the big question is how much food can it handle?

Depending upon the model you choose you could grill for one. two or even fifty.

Choose a two, three, four or six burner model, here is the key information on cooking capacity: 

2 Burner Models
3 Burner Models
4 Burner Models
6 Burner Models

To better illustrate capacity we've given you some likely food choices but the smaller the cut, the more you can cook at once.

Size is an important consideration when deciding which model of Gas BBQ is right for your needs.


As a general rule of thumb, a two burner best suits couples with limited space, a three burner for the small and growing family, a four burner to feed a crowd and a six burner for even larger numbers. For 2018 the most popular size was the e-310 (three burner).
