A mid-range grill that's able to take on more cooking jobs. Perfect for hosting a small event or a family BBQ!

The Genesis 6511001 is a 3-burner gas grill with all the features you’ll love if you’re a BBQ junkie! This high-end griller comes with 637-square-inch cooking/warming space, porcelain-enameled cast iron grates, flavorizer bars, heat deflectors, and stainless steel burners. It also features an individual electronic ignition system, built-in thermometer, stainless steel burner tubes. The 6511001 has a total heat output of 38,000-BTUs.

We love how the control panel is front mounted so everything you need to adjust from the controls is within easy reach. The flavorizer bars are huge, perfect for those who love roomy smokers and warming space! Of course, the enclosed cart is always a welcome feature when you’re grilling outdoors. Inside the cart, there are 6 tool hooks for added convenience during food preps.

The burner tubes are not only durable, they’re also easy to clean, saving you less time on cleanup and more time grilling some meat, yes! The level of control over each burner is also nice; you have the option to grill directly or indirectly. The generous cooking space grills meat evenly but you can also fine-tune the heat level. There are not many negative reviews on the 6511001. We’ve road tested this griller and it passed with flying colors. However, some users say their 6511001s were defective. The incident is an isolated one but worth noting when you’re getting this griller.
