What is the Difference Between the Weber Spirit, Genesis II, Genesis II LX and Summit BBQ Grills?

by Steve Sheinkopf

Weber has completely evolved in 2017 to exceed the expectations of their most popular Genesis grill. Recent improvements to their design and capabilities have been made. Their burners and flavorizer bars now provide a more even heat, and their ignition system is now designed for one strike activation, even in cold weather. 

Furthermore, Weber improved their grease management system and created an app accessory to monitor your food remotely, so you do not have to be tethered to your grill during a party or a get-together.

For 2017, the Genesis series are the only grills with these improvements. Weber has also increased the Genesis lineup from 4 grills to 8 with a new series called the Weber Genesis II LX.

With all the new innovations we felt it was important to look at Weber's Spirit, the Genesis II, Genesis II LX, and the Summit grills. The options may seem daunting but hopefully this article will help you choose the right grill for you.

First, we will look at Weber as a company and why they should be considered for your grill.

However, the Big Green Egg has become incredibly popular and should also be considered. Its ceramic body can cook almost anything.

So which one is better? That really depends on how you cook. We will look at both companies, both products and then compare at the end.
