Hi All,

I've just joined this forum as I am looking for a new BBQ. I've never owned a good BBQ and based of reviews out there ( and this site ) we are considering the Weber Genesis II LX ( 3 burner ).

I know someone with the original Genesis ( with Sear station ) and they love it.

At the moment they are on sale here. https://www.hawkesburyheating.com.au/pr ... m-gas-bbq/ for about 10% off the range.

However I have read some bad reviews about the new 'Searing" option on the LX which is basically the new burners have a High+ option to use for searing.

Does anyone on this forum have this BBQ and can they comment?

Many thanks in advance and a Happy New Year!

Howdy, I have the Gen 2 Premium 4 burner. Absolutely no problem searing steak 🥩 that I have experienced. The key seems to be allowing enough time for the hot plate/grills to reach heat - perhaps 5-10 mins max....salt and oil on steam before placing them on. Bang! Good results for me. In short, I’m very happy with my Gen 2.

Just reviving this old post....I see a new LX (with sear station) came out late last year in the US and Canada:

Anyone know if it's close to being released in Oz? Hanging out for this one.

Cheers
