Where the Weber Genesis began
The Weber Genesis II is one of the most popular additions to the Weber range. The original Genesis was introduced into the Weber range in 1980’s. It has now evolved into a BBQ backyard hero.
Weber has taken this popular grill and given it a signature all of its own – the Weber gs4 cooking system. This comprises 4 key essential cooking elements that give the Weber Genesis that special edge.
In the past, one of the greatest challenges with outdoor grilling was uneven heat distribution. Weber made solving this problem a priority when researching new and improved ways to disperse heat more evenly. The gs4 burners are tapered to provide a consistent pressure of gas along the entire length of the burner.
GS4 Infinity Ignition
If the ignition on a barbeque is faulty, it basically renders the unit worthless. The technical research team at Weber thought this was unacceptable. With more durable and long lasting materials, they set about devising a new ignition system. By deciding to move sensitive components away from the intensity of the heat they realised this exclusive ignition system would never wear out – ever. They even guarantee it!
GS4 Flavorizer Bars
Do you know why barbequed food tastes so much better than any other? It’s the juices and fats from the meat that are trapped in the unit to infuse the food over and over again.
The Genesis has angled steel bars located above the burners. Again, thanks to the brains trust at Weber, the bars have been angled a specific way to allow the fats and juices to safely run off the food without the risk of a fat fire. These flavoursome liquids hit the bars, then sizzle and smoulder to release the rich meat flavour back into the food. Anyone hungry?
GS4 Grease Management System
The fat management system in the Genesis II guides excess fat and debris away from the heat of the burners, into a disposable drip tray below the cooking area. That means fat won’t build up near the burners, helping reduce the chance of a fat fire.
What is Weber iGrill technology?
This precision temperature control system is exclusive to Weber. The iGrill is an App you download onto your phone. The temperature probe that is inserted into you meat will allow you to track the progress of your food. The system talks to your phone alerting you of any unwanted temperature variations and also gives you the option to increase or decrease the temperature if required.
