The original; reinvented
Launched in 1985, the Genesis range was Weber's first foray into the gas barbecue market.
They used their years of charcoal expertise to create a design that excelled and endured.
For 2017 Weber have continued their history of innovation with a complete redesign: expanding and improving the whole group of grills to create the Genesis II range.
The Genesis II range is split into two varieties: Genesis II and Genesis II LX.
There are some core features which are the same across the two varieties, and the Genesis II LX has some additional features as extras.
New Weber Genesis II Series
For 2019, they have again revamped the range, you now have the Genesis II and the premium variants (EP in black or SP in stainless).
With more than a few improvements which include a new curved chrome handle, a thicker fixed side shelf and a taller profile for increased comfort at the grill.
The cast Iron Gourmet BBQ System cooking grates which are fantastic for searing and designed to be used with a range of cooking accessories; these have been tweaked to free up more space on the grill when using a GBS accessory.
The Elevations warming rack now comes as standard across both the new 2019 Genesis II and the new premium variants too.
