Which Brand of Cover Should You Buy?
Typically the Weber product is the most expensive option and it is natural to think about going with a cheaper brand. Here are some thoughts and ideas to help you make a decision between brands.
- Any cover is better than no cover. Don’t worry about making a bad decision…just buy one and get your grill protected from the elements.
- The Weber products come with a three year warranty. The covers are UV stabilized and will last.
- I like the look of the Weber logo on the official cover. I spend a lot of time sitting on my porch looking at my grills so what the covers look like is important to me.
- The main thing is just to buy a cover!
Do You Really Need a Cover?
Keeping your Genesis covered is a great way to protect your investment. If you can get the Flavorizer bars, cooking grates and burner tubes to last just a few years longer then the cover will have paid for itself.
In addition to helping the parts last longer the cover will help the FRAME last longer. The main reason that people eventually take their trusty Weber grill down to the curbside trash is because after 15-20 years of sitting outside the frame will start to rust out. It is easy to buy replacement grates, igniters, etc but getting a new frame is almost impossible. If you keep a cover over your grill when it is not is use I promise that the frame will last many years longer.
