I was just checking out the Weber genesis II online as I saw a commercial for Ace Hardware advertising them. I just bought my genesis 330 a few years ago so I was kind of bummed I missed out on the new one until I just read they are made in China! Wtf Weber??? Half the reason I bought my pricey Weber is because it was made in America! Here's to hoping I get 20 years out of my 2014 Weber because I won't pay a premium price for a Chinese made product. I hope trump taxes the bleep outta Weber for this!
I'm with you! I got the 310 - few years back and it's a tank! Well built, holds the heat, even cooking. Honestly it gets neglected because I prefer the charcoal taste/process but when I need it, it performs flawlessly. It's a shame that such an American company is shipping its production elsewhere. I agree that even if the quality is similar (which it won't be) I wouldn't pay top dollar for it.
Well that's a bummer!

I have (had 6 Weber grills/smokers, sold 2 of the smokers & 1 grill) in the last few weeks!

It's a shame they went to China.

I'm glad my Lang is still made here.

That's what I'm saying lemans! Weber in china just doesn't seem right....
Yeah I assume that's true but I won't sell mine. The review I saw on the new one said some of the metal is thinner and cheaper. This aggravates me to no end. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
