Weber Grill Grates.

Angelo,,,,,,,,,,,, Nothing beats a Weber grill....... I have the raw cast iron grates and they ROCK..... I was gonna get the coated cast iron but glad I have the raw. Either one rocks...... You'll enjoy it immensley.

So very true...... Left to right gives you longer burner tubes with more BTU's. Also, if you only run burner 1 and 3 of the left to right you get more of a convection oven vs. direct grilling, just like shutting down 1/2 of the grill fwd and aft like you are describing. Also,,,, I was talking to my friend last night and he said he has had his Weber almost 20 years, (left to right) and loves it and had a part fail and Weber said they would mail him a replacement part out a.s.a. p. Unbelievable customer service.......! They Rock..... Hope you get what you want in the 2011 Model Mikie......!

mcf,
When I grill I only need one platform. All of my food prep and anything else I need is done inside. I guess as long as it serves my needs, I am completely happy with it. I had a charcoal grill for the last 4 years and it had two platforms and I found that 99% of the time I only used one side. It works for me! I can understand others needing two platforms and that is why the redesign is good for them.

I would have preferred the knob placement to be on the front,,,,, but again, not a huge show stopper for $125.00 less than the 2011's.

Actually Mikie, I prefer left to right so I can't complain for the price. It's a Weber for a reduced price. My buddy has a Weber from almost 10 years ago with left to right burners and regular cast iron grill plates and it is still the "BEST" grill I have ever used. Left to Right or Front to Back it's still the heat retention of the cast iron that does the majority of the cooking. Happy customer non the less.....!

Philly Ray,
Good score! I was shopping for a Genesis 310 and found last years models at Home Depot for $575.00 and free shipping (online). Last years models but after talking with Weber and asked them the difference between 2010 and 2011 models they ensured me there is really NO difference at all and the 2011 models were $699.00 and up. The deals are out there just waiting to be had. AND,,,,,, the assembly was the best. 3 hours and I was up and running. Great job Weber!
