Grills very well, grates clean easy, but cleaning the firebox takes forever
Great bbq, food comes out great, grates are easy to clean, firebox which is Aluminium is difficult to clean, the advice to just scrape it, does not result in a clean inside... Used the expensive spray that they provide, but does not get rid of burnt on fat, nearly used half a bottle spraying, waiting, wiping, have used it only 2 times so far, maybe one cannot get it totally clean... Ps, takes a full dsy to assemble...
I've had this for about 3 months now. So happy with it. I replaced my second Baby Q. So glad I went with this one and not another Q. A million times better. Warms up in about 2 minutes (to about 250 -270 C). Cooks steaks etc very quickly and very well. Ive just done a few roasts in the last week, chicken and pork, perfect. Couldn't be more happy with this bbq. It took a few hours to put together, but a bit if patience and just following the instructions and you've got a very well built quality bbq.

This BBQ Is Brilliant!!!!
The first thing I noticed about this BBQ was the firebox - it is made of good solid metal (aluminium maybe) but whatever it is made of it holds its temperature perfectly. It is a lot more enclosed than my previous hooded 4 burner bbqs - which were all good, recognized, brands and so the burner flames aren't at all susceptible to being blown around when BBQing on a windy day.
I just never, ever, burn anything with this bbq. I have now had it three months and cook on it at least once a week and quite often two tor three times a week.
This BBQ...consistently produces the best roast lamb - including those done in our kitchen oven. During the roasting the bbq holds its temperature perfectly. I set the burners at the desired level and the temperature just sits on 230C the whole time. Every other BBQ I have had the temperature would slowly climb and if you didn't check it regularly the roast would start to burn. The steaks are awesome also. Vegies char nicely and eggs and bacon is a breeze. No more burnt sausages - this BBQ is making me look like a much better cook than I really am :-) There a some really good videos (YouTube etc) to help you try some new things.
Love using my Weber grill
I’m quite new to Weber grills but now after having used my Spirit 2 E-310 for a year now, I can seriously recommend this grill to any first time Weber owner-to-be. The T-bones come out perfect with this thing. Veggies can flavoured so well with the flavourizer bars doing their thing. Cleaning the grill is really easy too! Which is a super important point!! Grates are easily cleaned with the Weber triangular brush thing and the insides are easily cleaned with the black plastic spatula thing to scrape off charcoal surfaces. Money well spent! A definite crowd pleaser!

Great unit. Super customer service.
Cooks everything well, heats up quickly, maintains heat well and even. Makes me a chef! Great cook box, good flavor. Big enough to cook for 8-10 at a time; I can put up to 10 lamb forequarter chops in one go.
Quality materials, solid grill; no rust; easy to clean - no sharp edges or difficult to reach areas. The original Weber cover is a must.
The ignition cable insulation melted in the side burner, but Weber customer service was very helpful, and arranged a complete replacement after looking at photos.
It has been prefect since then. Happy customer. My first Weber product. Certainly not the last.

After weeks of research decided on the Spirit 2 320 model. Have used it twice now first time we did 4, T Bone steaks and came out perfect . Next day we did Angus beef burgers and they were amazing. I am so used to standing and watching my food cook, that this close the lid style cooking is very relaxing actually. Just keep an eye on the time for when your food is due to flip and your good to go. Weber give guides and cooking temps which makes things so easy. Looking for to doing a pork roast with crackle. I can highly recommended this bbq.

Very impressed with the quality.
For a BBQ made in China, Weber have sourced a quality product. It appears to be based on the Genesis design and although the Genesis is made in the USA, the quality is comparable. Cooks great, even the wife commented on that it cooks better than our last BBQ. No cold spots, heats evenly and gets up to temp fairly quick. The side burner is handy, however, you can't use a pan bigger than about 24cm. Cleaning is a breeze, I just wipe the grate down with a BBQ wipe after cooking and we are ready to go for next time. Weber is a good brand and ...have excellent after sales service, at $990 it's a great alternative to the more expensive Genesis series. Accessories are expensive, but then again they are quality and last much longer than the generic gear sold on the web. Gotta go and cook my lunch, see ya.

Webber winner !
After weeks of reviewing Bbqs I bit the bullet and purchased the spirit E-320. The quality and warrantee that Weber provide were the selling points by far ! Once I cranked her up and watched a few YouTube videos it’s was time to give a rip eye a try. It didn’t take long at all to heat this thing up ( under 10 minutes ) also noting that this was on a cold and windy night ! Once I had seared it twice on both sides she was ready ! No complaints ! Easy to clean and ready for next sesh ! Side burner is also of great quality and was another selling point as I like to cook the heavy scenting foods outside . Compact in size and perfect for apartment or townhouse living !
Reluctant to buy,but now glad i did
Let me start by saying i am somewhat of a cheapskate,really didnt want to spend nearly $500.00 on a grill when the big box stores are advertising grills for $149.00,after all heat is heat,they all do that,convinced by wife i made the Weber purchase,grill was preassembled,big plus,first use it fired right up,impressed,heated quickly,again impressed,even temp across the grates,hmmm this is pretty good,food cooked quickly and tasted great,even more impressed,easy to clean,not impressed thats my wifes job,grill looks great,impressed friends and fam...ily,temp gauge built in,gauge to let u know when propane is low,nice feature,accuracy to be determined,only negative is moving the grill by grabbing the foldable side tray,rather flimsy may not hold up well,but,no worries with the 10 year warranty,after all this i am still a cheapskate,but i am glad i purchased the weber grill,it appears to be money well spent. fellow cheapskates take the weber plunge,u wont be dissatisfied.

Another Quality Weber Product
We owned a Weber Family Q for just over 10 years and truly loved it.
Just about a month ago, we decided to replace our FQ and started looking at our options and at no stage did not consider buying any brand other than Weber.
When surfing Weber’s home page, premium gas range options took our attention, in particularly Spirit II E-310 due to its overall size and sufficient cooking area for our needs.
Even we trust the brand so much, we watched quite a few YouTube reviews, I must say I was a little sceptical about Spirit II E-310 but decided to go...

Questions & Answers
Can you grill on this with the hood up?
Weber Barbecues A.Weber
Hi NAF, all of our barbecues are designed to cook with the hood down, as this is when they're most effective and you get that famous Weber flavour. If you cook with the hood up, you won't get the results you're after. Thanks!
Hi NAF, this approach was new to me when I started using my new Weber Spirit II but it really does work wonders.
I've gone from cooking ok food on my old BBQ to becoming a Grill King. Preheat the grill, then lower the heat by a couple of notches, throw on your steaks and shut the lid. It's that simple and it works a treat.
When I have onions on the hotplate and snags and steaks on the grill I will grill with the lid open for longer and it still cooks perfectly. There is also several weber spirit videos on youtube that are worth watching.
Best BBQ I've ever bought!! :-)
Does it come with a griddle, I was told the classic Weber BBQ all come with the griddle.
Yes, the Spirit II comes with two grill plates and a hot plate / griddle. So you can configure the BBQ with two grills or one grill and the hot plate.
The hot plate has an enamel like coating which makes it super easy to clean and helps the eggs, fish etc not to stick to the surface.
Personally I’d go for the side burner too.
Hope that helps.
Hello, I am considering a Weber Spirit II for my new place. I was just wondering if it comes with a flat plate option as well as the two grill plates pictured online?
