Disclaimer: Reviewing the Weber Genesis S-330 Natural Gas Grill is kind of like reviewing a luxury car. I mean really, what’s not to love? You simply won’t find a better grill for the price.
We were fortunate to receive the grill for review from The Home Depot Canada as part of our #ProjectPatio overhaul. Now in the spirit of being completely honest… and you know I always am… I actually haven’t used this grill once. Frankly, I don’t even know how to turn it on. To me, it’s nothing more than a shiny new appliance that looks kind of spectacular on my shiny new patio.
However, the MAN CHEF in my family is near-orgasmic over this contraption. In fact, my husband has attributed most of his happiness this summer to the addition of the BBQ. Hence, when he’s not wiping it down or admiring it from afar (yes, I have caught him staring), he can usually speak to its features and attributes.
“This stainless steel rendition of our top-of-the-line Genesis natural gas grill creates an atmosphere of pure grilling excellence. It’s high-heat Sear Station burner, three standard stainless steel burners, and electronic ignition system are just a few of the noteworthy features you won’t be able to resist.” – Weber Grills
– 38,000 BTU cooking system provides powerful heat and performance
– The 10,600 BTU sear burner is designed to step up the heat on demand for searing
– The 12,000 BTU flush mounted side burner let’s you multi task at the grill
– The stainless steel rod cooking grids have a 7mm diameter
– Includes a 10-foot flexible natural gas hose
– Two stainless steel work surfaces offer plenty of room for all your grilling needs
Of course, before I let him get into the nitty gritty, here’s what I like about the Weber Genesis S-330 Natural Gas Grill:
Okay, it’s pretty obvious that I’m a huge fan of our new BBQ, for obvious, delicious reasons. But why is my husband on cloud nine?
1. Ergonomic, Flawless Design
With its generous cooking space to its 7mm diameter stainless-steel rod cooking grates, the Genesis S-330 gas grill simply exudes quality and craftsmanship. The burners roar to life and the grill heats up in minutes. Gone are the days of waiting for the BBQ to reach the optimal temperature; the Genesis S-330 is ready before you are. Then, the evenly heated cooking surface and precision controls allow you to tone things down or up to the perfect heat level for direct or indirect cooking. It’s no coincidence that food tastes better when grilled on the Weber Genesis.
2. Flavorizer Bars
Pretty sure that it’s a scientific term; the “Flavorizer Bars” are angled in just the right way to catch drippings that smoke and sizzle, which in turn – you guessed it – add extra flavour to your food. Think of it as deliciousness through osmosis. A bonus: any drippings not vaporized by the Flavorizer bars follow the angled slope and are funneled away from the burner tubes, which means that they’re rarely clogged with junk.
3. Grease Management
Likely my husband’s favourite feature. Say goodbye to flareups for good! And it’s not complicated at all – “When juices drip off the meat, they funnel down to the Flavorizer bars, and then what doesn’t vaporize into wonderful smoke goes down into the grease management system. The grease management system consists of an angled grease tray and catch pan. The grease tray rests beneath the cookbox a safe distance from the burner tubes to prevent the grease from catching fire.” – Weber Grills
4. Easy Clean Up
Stainless steel rod cooking grates make lovely sear marks, hold heat very well, and most importantly, clean up with ease. And since my husband dotes on his new BBQ, he has a vested interest in keeping it gorgeous. Lucky for him, a gentle brushing is all it takes to go from charred to pristine.
5. Sear Station Burner & Side Burner
The crown jewel of the S-330 model; the 10,600 BTU sear burner is designed to step up the heat on demand for searing. Seal in juices of your best-cut steaks and chops; get gorgeous grill marks on fish and whole veggies.
The Weber Genesis S-330 Natural Gas Grill retails for $1119.99 at The Home Depot Canada and will likely become part of your family.
(Or…. as witnessed on the right, it may replace members of your family. At least on desktop computer backgrounds.)
Special thanks to The Home Depot Canada for making our #ProjectPatio EPIC with the addition of this amazing Weber Genesis S-330 Natural Gas Grill. And in case all this BBQ talk has given you a hankering for some grilled grub, here are a few of my favourite BBQ recipes from the ol’ blog:
Grilled Picnic Taco Nachos
Rosemary Grilled Chicken
Korean Barbecue Beef Burgers
Grilled Salmon Tacos with Avocado Dressing
Lentil Walnut Burgers
Grilled Pomegranate Butterflied Chicken Breasts
Peri Peri Barbecued Chicken Legs
Grill on, folks. Grill on.
Thanks Lena, now I am jealous and hungry. Lol. Glad your hubby is enjoying his Weber grill. The fish and ribs look yum yum.
Thanks Tricha! The ribs were super yum!
Yes indeed folks, I was skeptical while owning broil king and blue ember however there really is no comparison to Weber. This is the summer of Mike (and family of course :)
Uh huh. Just remember to change your screensaver from time to time…
Holy BBQ Batman! I’m on the road to BBQ envy lol
LOL! It’s such a great BBQ Anne, I definitely recommend it!
The Weber Genesis Grill looks amazing. The barbecued ribs and the grilled taco nachos are making me hungry. Thanks for all those wonderful recipes Lena.
You’re very welcome! Please do try out the nachos – super easy and a great summer snack!

nice! my old bbq needs to be replaced, we’ve moved so much that it has taken a beating plus it blew off the deck once few years ago.
Um… it blew off the deck?? That’s kinda crazy!
Chandra Christine O'Connor
ya bad wind storm sent if flying right off deck. still works though but Im jelly of yours :)
Now THAT is a BBQ! :D Very sweet looking unit, for sure!
Thank you Soozle! We have, and we intend to!
Looks like a great BBQ!!! I would love to cook on a grill like that!
My husband adores it :) Thanks Judy!
We bbq in the summer every day and even in the winter when it’s cold and this grill looks like it would be up for the job , now I want some corn!
Mmm… corn. It’s so good on the BBQ, isn’t it?
Everything looks so delicious ! Wish I were able to have a natural gas BBQ again – they are so convenient as opposed to lugging propane tanks to get them refilled or have them poof out in the middle of cooking a meal. When I can, this is definitely the one I am going for ! Can I borrow your hubby to grill me up some of those ribs or the fish ??? LOL
Hahaha consider him loaned out! And I’m so happy to hear that you love the features of the grill. It’s pretty awesome!
Thanks !! My boarder isn’t too bad when it comes to the BBQ, but he doesn’t do fish or veggies (yet – I am working on it).
Lucky girl! Now that’s the Cadillac of great BBQ’s huh?!
You said it! It’s really amazing :)
So now does hubby need a fancy cover to keep this baby cozy over the winter?
Teena in Toronto
Sooo jealous! Our BBQ is so old and is needs to be replaced. Every year we say we are going to get a new one but never do.
We were like that too! Which is why I cherish this BBQ, LOL!
My hubby saw the pictures and now he wants a new grill….lol Not this year buddy!!!
Hahaha maybe an awesome Christmas present?
Wow, that is a nice looking BBQ!! I have a craving for nachos now!
I think I always have a craving for nachos, hahaha
Oh wow that grill is huge!! Thanks Lena and Michael for giving us all BBQ/patio envy! :)
Hahaha well go ahead and enter my giveaway – perhaps you can take a chunk off the cost of a grill!
make sure you disconnect during the winter!! You don’t want a huge bill by someone turning that on (I’ve heard of this via rumors but don’t know if its a true rumor LOL) My friend did this and also has one of those gas firepits to keep you warm at night
Oh WOW, thanks for the tip!
Very very nice girll. You will get many uses out of this one.
I know – we’re so lucky!
:) Thanks William!
I am definitely in search of a new grill and this one looks very sleek and large enough! can’t wait to see it in stores :)
Go check it out – you’ll be floored by how awesome it is!
LOVE That grill, My hubby is so in need of a nice one
It’s perfect for every MAN-CHEF :)
That is an awesome grill. Sorry had to drool over the yummy food =)
You’re excused! I’d drool too!
That is one awesome looking BBQ grill. Good thing my husband isn’t peaking over my shoulder because boy would he be jealous!
Hahaha totally understand!
Judy C (Cowan)
Watching for this grill to go on sale :)
I’ll certainly let you know if it does, Judy!
The grill looks good – I admit we have never owned one or used one ever
Really? Wow! We can’t live without it :)
Nice grill, but I live a very rural area, there is no natural gas this far out.
Good thing they have a propane option as well :)
My hubby is so jealous as this grill sounds amazing! I bet you can get your grill on big time with this bad boy!
Haha couldn’t have said it better!
What a great grill! Your pictures have made me so hungry! Yum yum!
Good looking grill
It’s amazing :)
We have a new Weber as well, my favourite feature is the removable drip tray – just slides right out – for easy cleaning, and the fat collector with the replaceable tin foil trays. Love it! Hubby loves the flavour bars, and the searing station on the Weber.
What an awesome review – and I couldn’t agree with you more!
I would like the items being grilled to be shipped to me please.. lol
LOL! Sure, the ribs are in the mail…
Hubs would happily grill on that monster! I on the other hand, have no idea how to turn them on… lol Thanks for the review pictures, i’m hungry. ;)
LOL me neither… though I think the push button start is very helpful :)
Wow, what a nice looking grill, all that food made me hungry, bbq corn on the grill without husk, never done that before!
Yup, super easy and super quick!
That fish and corn looks delicious. Serious cravings happening over here now, LOL.
Haha! Me too, and it’s only about 10:00am :)
I know weber is a good brand but this bbq is awesome and love the stainless steel.
Yes, yes and yes Doris :)
It’s so nice to hear that the cleaning process is easy! That’s the number one thing I really dislike about grilling!
My husband says that cleaning is – to quote him – a joy!
I have commented on this before but I am in love with this grill and your food is mouth watering.
Okay, I read this post and show my husband and state ‘look honey! Nachos on the bbq! Awesome! we should totally try that!” my response from my hubby ‘look honey! A weber Genesis! We should totally try that so we can make nachos!”. Note to self, don’t show my husband blogs or review of anything bbq related, lol!
LOL! I love this!!!
Okay, you have officially made me hungry. That fish looks so tasty with all the herbs in it. I really love your bbq. It has such a large cooking surface. Sweet backyard.
Thanks Doreen! The fish was definitely one of our faves.
Lori L. - @Miss_Elles
Haha, I’m just like you – hmmm, there is a BBQ in the backyard but I’m not sure how to even turn the thing on! That sure is one shiny BBQ though! I’m sure my hubs would be *drooling* along with yours! I’ll stick to drooling over the yummy food he makes! ;)
The food is indeed very yummy! But I think that’s mostly because it’s a kick ass BBQ!
That corn on the cob looks so good! I really want to try those nachos too.
Super easy and delish, Kelly! Give them a try!
So jealous and so hungry!
Hope you entered my giveaway for a $250 Home Depot gift card!
Looks delicious. I am now hungry. Having BBq for supper.
I think the BBQ looks super, I really like the grease management feature. Would you be so kind as to send me over a plate of those ribs.
Ha! I’ll FedEx them next time we make them Deb :)
We got our current BBQ as a wedding present 10 years ago. Totally on its last leg. This Weber looks amazing!
It’s the most awesome BBQ ever Natalie. I definitely recommend it!
Nachos on the BBQ…great idea!
I think other than the easy clean up, my favorite thing you talked about is the ‘no flare ups’ because of the grease management system. There are things I won’t BBQ because of the grease that comes off of them and the flare ups.
Flare ups are the bane of my existence! Not a problem anymore with the Weber Grill!
LOL – love the desktop background! I’m enamored with the food…..however that is a great looking barbeque.
Thanks Jan, hahah!
It’s 8:05 am here and now I want BBQ!!! Looks like I’ll be doing just that tonight! What an awesome looking BBQ – I know one man in my life that would fall off his chair if that bad boy showed up here.
My husband did just about that, Alisha!
I don’t think I will show this to my husband as he would have major bbq envy!
Keep him away – I know how men are with their grills!
Elizabeth Friesen (@emfriesen)
I love the taste of just about anything cooked on the BBQ!!! Just the smell of it is enough to get me salivating!!! That BBQ is gorgeous!!! So aesthetically pleasing!!! :D
I love everything you said, Elizabeth!
This looks like an amazing grill…I wouldn’t mind a grill for the kitchen…I don’t think I would have enough room for a large grill on my patio.
This is the king of grills, Teresa – you definitely need a little space :)
Ooh I need a new BBQ. That’s awesome
If I had that grill,I would never use my stove again,lol.
We rarely used it this summer, Lynn!
Wow I can only imagine how your husband feels, would think I died and went to heaven if I have this BBQ.
Ha! I’m sure he feels the same way!
Awesome grill!! I never thought about doing nachos on the bbq, but we’ll have to try it now!
Please do – they’re delish!
I love barbecued corn on the cob! No need to add any other flavourings!
Exactly! So yummy!
…Lena…That is one beautiful Grill…I can’t have one on my apartment balcony, but I sure miss all those delicious steaks and corn on the cob we use to make…Enjoy !!!
Come on over Colleen – open invitation for you!
Looks like an awesome grill, grills food nicely & I bet it taste amazing too!!
Everything is so delicious!
That gas grill is amazing! So much better than my family’s tiny little BBQ!
Now is a great time to upgrade!
I sure like the grease feature and the easy clean up feature that is the part I always dread but this looks very manageable
It’s very manageable, and quite awesome!
What a great BBQ, looks like there is lots of space to cook on. Thanks for posting the links to your recipes. Food looks delicious
You’re welcome Angela – enjoy!
That is an awesome grill, you’ve made me hungry with this post. Plus that is one bad boy grill :)
Hahaha it is!
Wow! What a gorgeous grill! Honestly, you had me at easy clean-up.
Yup, the best thing!
Although I do not have a Weber I have a very good high end BBQ and have had it for several years now. I love that the lighter button STILLS WORKS! Unlike the cheaper BBQ I don’t have to look for a BBQ lighter each time I go to use it. I highly recommned investing in a good BBQ that will give you years of pleasure using it rather than replacing cheaper ones and dealing with half working ones for years! Enjoy your awesome new BBQ!
Couldn’t have said it better, Cathy!
Awesome BBQ! It looks wonderful!
Absolutely beautiful Lena!! Men are such funny creatures aren’t they, interesting the things that excite them so much lol. It’s a beautiful addition to your beautiful family <3
Aw, thank you Darlene :)
i have BBQ envy – i’m hungry looking at all the food too
I am too!
Oh some of my favorites on the grill fish and corn! I have never tried nachos, they looks delish!
Yum, those are my faves too!
What a great grill…the food looks yummy!
Mmmmm the corn on the cob looks fantastic, I’ve never tried that yet, only heard great things about it though!!
It’s so delish – you must try it!
My hubby would LOVE that BBQ for our new house!
It’s the best grill ever!
I love grilling on natural gas great looking cook out!
Oh Lena, everything just looks so yummy, now I’ve got a rumbling in my tummy!
hahaha thanks so much!
You know this is the first summer we haven’t turned on our bbq. I’ll just drool at your pics.
Oh no! Not too late :)
I want a grill! lol
This grill looks amazing. I use my BBQ a lot, all year round, and would love one like this.
All year round? I’m impressed!

I wanted to contribute some comment of substance but I got distracted by the delicious foods and, pointedly, by the nachos.
Ha! Love your comment!
very good review of the BBQ; the food looks amazing
Awesome – thank you Robyn!
Oh that looks like a fabulous bbq. One I would definitely want on my deck.
BBQ season has passed where I am, but wow, that has me envious!
