The Weber® Spirit® barbecues represent the lower end of the spending spectrum, offering superb value for money whilst following Weber®'s blueprint for quality backed by a 10 year warranty. The Weber® Spirit® range is for those who want a reliable gas barbecue without paying over the odds for gimmicks and features you will rarely use. Instead you will find 2 or 3 stainless steel buners (depending on what model you choose) topped with Weber®'s patented "Flavourizer™ Bars" and quality cooking grates. Combine these features with a Grease Management System that allows for the easy disposal of any fat and juices using a small drip tray and you can see why the Spirit® Range has been the best selling Weber® Gas Barbecue range for years.
They are easy to construct - with the head unit pre-assembled - it is just a case of putting together the cart and frame and you are ready to get grilling! The lid thermometer helps you monitor your cooking without constantly opening up the barbecue and the lid itself is double-insulated for increased fuel efficiency. The regulator (suitable for all standard UK propane gas bottles), hose and connections are all included so the only other thing you need to worry about is purchasing a gas cylinder.
It is worth noting that the 2 burner models come with folding side tables, making it easier to store away when not in use. This side tables on the 3 burners do not fold away, but are fixed.
All models in the Spirit® range are constructed using powder coated steel, making them rust resistant and scratch resistant. They also benefit from a Crossover Ignition System, which easily fires up the burners with the simple push of a button. The burners work independently thanks to the incorporated infinite control burner valve dials. This allows for more precision in controlling the temperature inside your barbecue and gives you the ability explore the delights of indirect cooking. Simply put, this is where you create a zone inside your barbecue with no direct heat, allowing you to roast your food.
All the Spirit® models come with a handy warming rack where you can rest your food while you cook more, or you can also use it to warm your buns. They also come ready with slots for a rotisserie to be added (sold separately) allowing you to cook on a spit. This is a much loved method of cooking because it results in the most succulent meat you've ever eaten.
All models are also very mobile thanks to two fixed, crack-proof, all-weather wheels and two locking castors, which allowing you to secure it in place once you've found the ideal spot.
In 2017, the Weber® Spirit® Range, consists of 5 options. The Weber E-210 Spirit® Classic & Weber® E-310 Spirit® Classic, the Weber® E-210 Spirit® Original and Weber® E-310 Spirit® Original and finally the Weber® E-320 Spirit® Original.
Weber® Spirit® Classic
The Weber® Spirit® Classic models come with porcelain-enamelled Falvorizer® Bars and porcelain-enamelled steel cooking grates, which produce great tasting food. The Crossover Ignition System is ignited with a simple push button and they come with a removable kettle branded screen on the front, which can house a 5kg patio gas bottle inside or can be used as a handy storage area for those tools you need to keep close by. Larger gas bottles need to sit outside the barbecue to avoid any damage to the bottom of it due to the weight.
Weber® Spirit® Original
The Weber® Spirit® Original models take the impressive features of the Classic up a notch. The grates are upgraded to porcelain-enamelled cast iron. Cast iron grates have the ability to get hotter and retain the heat longer, making them even better to cook on. If you're searing a steak for example, the higher temperatures achieved by cast iron makes this easier. Cast iron is the preferred choice of professional chefs for a reason! The second upgrade is the ignition. It goes from a push button, to an electronic ignition that sparks continuously as you press it down. This simplifies the process and makes lighting up a doddle. The final difference is the addition of a door at the front, making access to the storage area more convenient. Again, you can put a 5kg propane gas bottle in here or use the space to store any tools you need to keep close by. Larger gas bottles need to sit outside the barbecue to avoid any damage to the bottom of it due to the weight.
The Weber® Spirit® E-320 is the top model in the Spirit range for 2017. Compared to the E-310 Original, a side burner has been added, handy for making your sauces or cooking your vegetables while your meat cooks. The cast iron grate has also been upgraded to a Gourmet BBQ System® grate, also made of porcelain-enamelled cast iron but adding a range of new cooking possibilities thanks to the accessories that are designed for it. These include the popular GBS® Griddle and GBS® Sear Grate. You can see the full range of GBS® accessories here.

Customer reviews of Weber® Spirit® Barbecues
Weber® Spirit® Classic E-210
We have spent years (literally!) trying to decide whether to buy a gas barbecue. We knew, if we did, it would have to be a Weber as we’re so impressed with our Weber charcoal barbecues, but the price was a bit daunting especially as we didn’t know if we would like the way it cooked the food. We finally decided to take the plunge - and it is brilliant. Not only does it smell like a charcoal barbecue when it’s cooking, the food tastes just as good and remains really succulent. At the weekend, when we had more time, we had a charcoal barbecue to test the difference and we really couldn’t notice any. We are absolutely delighted with the new gas barbecue, glad we stuck with Weber (I think the ‘Flavorizer’ bars probably do help give it the authentic ‘bbq’ taste) and just wish we’d bought one years ago!
Weber® Spirit® Classic E-310
Ordered Monday and arrived on the Tuesday. Very well packed, well built and very easy to assemble. This is my first Weber as I got sick and tired of other BBQ's only lasting one season. Most of the screws went in by hand and I just needed the tools at the end to tighten them up. Great quality and fired it up last night. Preheats to 300 degrees in about 10 minutes and cooks beautifully. Temperature controls perfect. Even on 2 burners just under half on and the temp with the hood down holds steady at about 200 degrees. Open the hood and it takes about a 2 minutes for the temp to get back to 200 degrees which is great. Going to try smoking some ribs this weekend. Very happy!
Weber® Spirit® Original E-210
We have waited a long time trying to find the right BBQ for our garden. I am extremely pleased to say our search is over. We went for the E210 Original which was an upgrade from the Spirit Classic. The BBQ itself is so easy to use and the cooking results I have to say are superb. It's a lovely compact BBQ and it looks very stylish. My only criticism would be there is no back panel on the BBQ but that does not impede the quality of the product. It is a very strong structure and the sides are also super sturdy when you place heavy plates on them. Overall I am very satisfied with my little Weber and I am really glad we saved up and went for a good quality brand. You do get what you pay for . I am now looking forward to using my smoker box that I have recently purchased. Delivery and service from Riverside Garden Centre exceeding my expectations. Once again another positive.
Weber® Spirit® Original E310
I have had the usual cheep bbq's up to this point. They all last a couple of years and then rust. Decided to spend a bit more this time and so glad I did. It is solid and cooks very well. Even heat over the grills and temp control is a breeze. So glad I made the decision to get it and would recommend it 100%. Go for it you won't regret it.
Weber® Spirit® Original E-320 GBS®
Have used a bbq for years and over cooked and burnt food regularly, wasn't sure how I'd get on but this bbq is amazing. Have now cooked sausages, burgers, chicken, gammon and all of them were done to perfection. With the lid down it cooks the food evenly and with flavour. So glad we spent the extra money on this.
