Gas barbecues are everyday heroes - You come rushing home from work. Your family is hungry, and there is little time, but you don't just want to feed them anything. With the press of a button the gas barbecue is lit, and a delicious meal is soon ready - with all the atmosphere and great taste that goes with barbecuing. It is that easy with Weber's gas barbecues.
When Weber, at the beginning of the 1980’s, decided to invent a new gas barbecue nobody knew that the result would become a true BBQ icon. Today the Genesis is one of the most beloved gas barbecues with its stylish modern design, innovative features and user-friendliness.
Flashback to 1985 - a year that marks a milestone for every Weber enthusiast. That year Weber introduced a new gas barbecue - a barbecue nobody had ever seen the likes of before, and that set new standards for what to expect of a gas barbecue. The series got the name Genesis and with this new barbecue Weber also introduced another new revolutionary invention, the Flavorizer Bars. An invention that changed gas grilling forever.
SETTING NEW STANDARDS
Before then the issue with gas barbecues was that people often experienced flare-ups and that the food did not taste like on the charcoal barbecue. But when Weber's engineer, Erich Schlosser came up with the idea of the Flavorizer Bars that issue was fixed: When the grease and juice felt down on the bended metal bars placed over the burners a small amount of smoke was created-enough to make food on the gas barbecue taste like classic barbecued food. Furthermore the bars prevented flare-ups and the burner system made it possible to grill both at direct and indirect heat. Combined with a new innovative design and features an icon was born. Through the years the Genesis has been updated and new models have joined. Today you can get models with and without side burner, with and without Sear Station - and you can upgrade it with a rotisserie, GBS accessories, smoker box and much more. Making it possible to do all sorts of food on the barbecue.

You need to use Calor Patio Gas (propane) or similar. The 5kg bottles fit nicely inside the cabinets of the Weber Genesis barbecue hidden from view. The larger 13kgs gas bottles have to be stood to the side or behind the Genesis barbecue. The regulator on Weber gas barbecues is a 27mm clip on version, which is very easy to use.
