The Bottom Line

The bottom line is that this is the bottom line of Weber Grills. If you want a smaller, dependable grill then this is a great one. If you need more cooking space then you probably need a different grill. The biggest draw back on this unit is that it's a little underpowered so you might have a little trouble getting a good sear on that steak of yours. And while the support is great you are paying a lot for a grill of this size and style

Guide Review - Weber Genesis Silver A - Discontinued

This grill has been discontinued. It is replaced by the Weber Spirit E-210 Gas Grill.

This is the smallest and least expensive of the Weber Genesis Grills. While it is well built, has very even heating and many accessories are available, this grill is small for the price (about $500 retail) with about 350 square inches of primary cooking space. If you are looking for a quality grill but don't need a lot of space then this is the perfect grill.

This grill has all the usual Weber features from their high quality stainless steel burners to the "flavorizer-bar" grease vaporizer to the basic look and feel of a Weber. The one thing you might be concerned with is that some people claim this grill can't deliver the heat. The 26,000 BTUs delivered by its two main burners sounds low, but considering the smaller size of the box it's not too low. If its very important to you to have a very hot grill you might want to look elsewhere.

Weber ranks amongst the best grills on the market and you pay for that quality and the 24/7 support. This is a basic grill that won't give you a lot of versatility but it will give you dependable performance for many years to come and with a good warranty you'll be able to keep it fixed up and working like new long than most grill last.

Very Good BBQ Except Inadequate Heating, Member justbugged

I have owned this grill for at least 8 or 9 years now. I now need replace the burner in it, and I have already replaced the cooking grate. I know that my use of course sea salt can't be all that great for any grill, so this has not bothered me to much. The BBQ was very under heated when I first got it, my DH put a different regulator on it and so I am very content with Genesis Silver A BBQ. I have used this grill to cook a full Thanksgiving Dinner including homemade rolls and pies. I have cooked pizzas and cookies on it. We continue to use it on at least weekly basis or more. I have been know to cook on in the pouring rain. I give 4 stars due to the fact that it doesn't come with a adequate regulator.
