Weber Spirit SP-310 Gas Grill
Weber Spirit SP-310 Gas Grill
Weber's entry level Spirit line was completely redesigned for 2013. Spirit SP-310 has three stainless steel burners. It is the largest Spirit model with 424 square inches primary cooking surface and a 105 square inch warming rack.
A big change for Spirit is reconfiguration of the burner layout. Burners used to line up front to back with control knobs on the right side shelf. The 2013 models have burners that line up from left to right with control knobs on the front panel. We believe gas burners aligned left to right not only free up work space on the side shelf, but provide better performance when cooking indirect or 2-zone. Indeed Weber Genesis, Summit and most other manufacturer's gas grills follow this burner design. Also included is Weber's in cart LP tank fuel gauge that gives an approximate indication of fuel level by weight.
The SP-310 has 7mm stainless steel rod grates and porcelain enameled flavorizer bars. The single door cart is painted steel with a stainless door. The lightish hood and work surface are also stainless steel. Cast aluminum end capes feature built-in tool hooks and a small condiment rack is affixed to the side of the cart. It rests on four casters (two locking) and has battery powered ignition. SP-310 is only available for use with LP gas. SP-320 is basically the same model with a 12,000 BTU side burner that is available in both LP and NG models.
Spirit was always a very basic, well made, serviceable grill line. The 2013 redesign offers significant upgrades and considerable value. Owners of previous Spirit grills may rub their eyes in disbelief as they behold these new cookers that barely resemble past models. Although Spirit is Weber's entry level price point, it is still more expensive than many other popular grill brands. However, most Spirit owners feel the quality, durability and performance are worth the price.
