Welcome to the World of Weber!
There’s nothing like the feeling of getting together around the
braai. The food, the friends, the meat, the marinades, the smell
and the small talk. The tall tales and the bad jokes. It’s what
we all love and it’s what happens when we finally get together.
In this issue we’ve invited anyone and everyone to talk about
everything, and to talk about nothing. To savour the multitude of
flavours from grand experiments to simple, honest and homecooked favourites. Come rain or shine, there’s something here
for everyone, from beginners to experts to uncles who know
more than anyone else.
The Genesis® II gas braai is a revolution in braaing, a system
designed to suit you, whoever you are and wherever you find
yourself in life. With eight models in two series, this braai will
host any evening - from a first nervous date to the spectacular
chaos of an extended family reunion. Through years and years
of fine-tuning, the ­Genesis® we are now finally ready to unveil is
our n
­ ewest family member and the next generation of braaing.
We’re excited to show it to you and we hope that you’re excited
to see it – and to try it!
So here we all are! It’s so good to see you, so good to get together.
Have a seat and enjoy the appetisers – dinner won’t be long.
we're so glad you could make it!
LET ’S CELEBRATE TOGETHER
It’s a fact that at Weber we’ve always ­taken great pride in bringing
people together from near and far, for sparking new friendships
and rekindling old ones. We hope that you will find the inspiration
in this edition to get together more often and enjoy each other's
company. We are also bursting with pride over the introduction of
something extraordinary in these pages. Something brand new.

The moment that
changed BBQ
THE STORY OF WEBER
It all started with a fire – a fire that sparked George Stephen’s
interest in creating a better barbecue for everybody. His efforts
resulted in the world’s first barbecue kettle; the Weber kettle.
Get the story from his son, Jim Stephen.
Text Jim Stephen i Photo Weber-Stephen Products
Life is a string of pearls – pearls that
represent all kinds of moments.
Moments of happiness, of joy, of success,
of excitement, and inevitably of failure.
These moments define us and we carry
them with us throughout life. Looking
back at the story of Weber, one moment
in particular stands out – a moment that
was in fact the very beginning of what
we know as Weber today. A moment
of failure.
Back in around 1950 my mum and dad
built their first home, in a town called
Mount Prospect, close to Chicago. At
that time brick fireplace barbecues
were very popular in the US, so my
dad decided to build one. After finishing
it he invited everybody over for a big
party and … the food went into flames.
It was all burnt because Dad couldn’t
control the fire. In my dad’s mind the
barbecue dinner was a disaster. He
was working at Weber Brothers Metal
Works where they made buoys for the
Chicago harbour system. Their speciality
was to spin half spheres, then weld
them together to make a complete
sphere – to make a buoy. After the
flop of the barbecue, Dad’s mind had
started spinning on how to make a
better barbecue. He took one of the half
spheres, put legs on it, punched holes
in the bottom of it to get air moving
through and put a lid on top. Over
time Dad’s first barbecue evolved with
dampers, a deeper lid, etc. – essentially
into what is the Weber kettle today.
So you know – how you deal with
your failures is what determines your
success in life. I always say this to my
kids because if Dad hadn’t experienced
that disaster barbecue in the backyard,
Weber probably wouldn’t be here today.
Failure wasn’t an option for Dad - it
was just a source of inspiration. He had
a simple dream – to create the best
barbecue possible and build a company
that reflected his personality, values
and vision. All he wanted was to make
an amazing barbecue – that’s what

A L IFETIME
OF BBQ
EVOLUTION
2017 marks Weber’s 65th
anniversary. It’s been an
incredible journey and
for no one more so than
Chairman of the board,
Jim Stephen. He was
literally born into the
barbecue business as his
father George invented
the world’s first kettle
barbecue and by doing
so founded Weber.
he did and that’s what he passed on
to everyone at Weber today. A Weber
barbecue is the perfect focal point of
the special moments we all have in
common. They are personal and unique,
but we all know them. Those moments
where we get together, talk and enjoy
each other's company. That’s exactly
what Dad did and loved to do – and now
65 years later, that’s exactly what a
Grill Academy experience is like, what
our demonstrations are like and what
it’s like to cook in your own backyard.
For Weber, our finest task is to make
these moments possible – to inspire
and keep on surprising you. It’s a
great pride to be one of the children
of the man who started this and
revolutionised BBQ by introducing the
world to barbecuing with a lid. Weber
is built on the many moments you, I
and all other BBQ lovers around the
globe share everyday. Thanks to all our
employees who put their heart and soul
into making this possible, and thanks
to every single one of you, who loves
to grill and put all your passion into
the food on the grate each day – you’ve
made Weber and Dad’s dream into
what it is today: A wonderful collage
of outstanding moments that was kickstarted by what I love to call ‘George’s
fabulous flop’ – the brick fireplace that
went into flames. Some years ago my
brother Ken and I visited the house
we grew up in and it turned out that
Dad’s original fireplace barbecue was
still there. So we made a deal with
owner that he couldn’t resist. He got a
brand new Summit and we got the old
fireplace barbecue. We had a bricklayer
take it down and re-build it exactly
the same at the office. Why? Because
it reminds us all that through failure
comes success, if you just keep trying
and then, as Dad always said, you can
achieve your wildest dreams! ■

REMEMBER
RESTING TIME
The core temperature of
the meat actually rises a
few degrees after you take
it off of the braai. Therefore, it is a good idea to let
the meat rest and reach the
right core temperature before you carve it. This gives
the juices time to distribute
throughout the meat again,
so you get a more uniform
and juicy result. iGrill also
helps you here by warning
you 3-6°C before the meat
reaches the right core temperature, so you can take it
off the braai and let it rest.
Find the right iGrill for you
- learn more on weber.com

THE CORE
OF PERFECT MEAT
The chefs from Weber's Grill Academy all agree – the most
important thing when braaing meat is to closely monitor the core
temperature, so that you can adjust the braai as needed. Weber's
new iGrill gives you easy and precise temperature control, meaning
you have the freedom to enjoy the company of your friends or to
watch the match on TV.
Text Hanne Hedetoft i Photo Thomas Woller
Some people love a tender steak, while
others cannot resist braaied chicken or
a juicy roast. Whatever your favourite,
there is one element which is more
important than any other when you
braai meat – the core temperature. This
is what determines when the meat is
perfect – whether you prefer your meat
rare, medium or well done. The core
temperature gives you control, so that
you can serve a delicious, juicy result,
just how you like it.
EVERY THING YOU NEED
When you measure the core temperature,
you can forget about imprecise methods
like calculating cooking time based on
weight, pressing the meat to check it
or, heaven forbid, cutting the meat. Let
the meat cook in peace and instead
spend time socialising with your friends,
watching that important match on TV
or chopping vegetables and preparing
side dishes. As long as you can monitor
the temperature you have the situation
under control, and all you need for that
is a thermometer. You can even move
around freely as you watch what is
happening to the temperature.
IGRILL – STOP THE GUESSWORK
With Weber's iGrill and the free iGrill app
you can keep an eye on the temperature
from anywhere in the house. Using
Bluetooth, it's easy to connect iGrill
to your mobile phone or smart device
so that you can keep tabs on what is
happening. This means that you can put
an end to all of the guesswork about
whether or not the meat is ready to serve.
It also leaves you free to focus on what
really matters – spending time with your
guests. Once the meat has reached the
desired core temperature, iGrill notifies
you via an alarm so that you can take the
meat off of the braai. Depending on the
model, you can connect from one to four
probes, so you can even cook multiple
pieces of meat at the same time.
THE FUTURE OF BRAAING
Use the predefined core temperatures or
ask iGrill to notify you when your preferred
temperature has been reached. iGrill
offers countless options. For example, you
can upgrade it with a handy Ambient Pro
Probe which measures the temperature
inside the braai, rather than the meat's
temperature like a normal probe. This can
be useful when you are smoking meat or
fish in the braai, or when you want to slowroast your meat. It's important to keep
the braai at a constant low temperature
for this, and iGrill helps you to monitor
it. You can set iGrill to notify you if the
temperature suddenly rises above or
drops below a certain temperature. ■

Introducing the all new Genesis® II and Genesis® II LX
braais for all your special moments
Text Jon Finch, Anne Thomsen & Jack Stafford i Photo Weber-Stephen Products
As we all know, grilling on a braai is about much more than
simply the food. It’s about the occasion you’re cooking for. Can
you even count how many great times you have had laughing
and eating around a braai? These are the moments in life you’ll
always remember. Times to celebrate, times to cherish. The
Genesis® is a classic braai that has been with you for over 35
years. But even classics need updating eventually. It has now
been reimagined for the 21st Century with the all-new Genesis®
II braais. They’re designed to be the perfect companion for
whatever, whenever and wherever you’re cooking.

PERFECTING PERFECTION
It’s a big year for the world of braaing. It’s a big year for every
braai enthusiast and a big year for Weber. An icon is being
relaunched and it’s finally ready for the world. Ready for
backyards, patios, gardens and balconies all over the globe. For
more than two years, engineers and designers at Weber have
been working on a seemingly impossible project: improving on
perfection. The result, Weber's new Genesis® II models, with
the revolutionary GS4 engine. It opens up a whole new chapter
in grilling history. ➥
I HAVE TO GIVE A LOT OF CREDIT TO THE TEAM THAT DESIGNED
THE ORIGINAL GENESIS®, IT WAS SUCH A DRAMATIC STEP IN TERMS
OF THE APPROACH TO HOW THE GRILL WOULD WORK
Marc Colavitti
Vice President, Research & Development
History, research, design, imagination… they have all played a
part in developing this new benchmark of braais. The objective
was to create a braai that could be a part of people’s lives
and fits with every stage of those lives. Above all it should
be a catalyst for fun among friends and family, a focal point
for getting together with the ones you love.
The original Genesis® was so well designed that the first
major challenge was researching what to improve. “We didn’t
have any kind of baggage. We started from a standpoint – an
excellent standpoint. Maybe that is an even bigger challenge
actually, because you have to improve perfection,” says Marc
Colavitti, Vice President for Research and Development at
Weber-Stephen Products.
The research showed that the size of braai people choose has
nothing to do with the amount of features they want. Some
actually want a larger braai with more burners without the
need for lots of features. But they were forced to buy both.
On the other hand, someone who would love a fully featured
gas braai for a small area, such as their balcony, had to settle
with less because they didn’t have room for a big braai.
A GR IL L F OR L IF E
“The idea really was that there should be a model for whatever
life stage you’re in, and that you only have to choose between
which feature set and which size is right for you,” explains Marc.
The solution is to have the Genesis® II available in two platforms.
Genesis® II has the basic features and Genesis® II LX has a more
extended set of features. Both come with two, three, four or
six burner models. With the two burner models you have the
perfect solution for your balcony or small patio – not least
because of the folding side table that will save you some space.
On the other hand, the six burner models give you space you
need to cook for the entire neighbourhood – and their friends.
G S 4: P O W E R IN G T HE R E V OL U T ION
Talking about features and changes – a lot of exciting
innovations have been introduced with Genesis® II. For instance
the gas bottle has been moved to the side of the braai, as
research showed that people wanted the handling of the bottle
to be easier. This move actually has an effect on the very
heart of the Genesis® II models; the engine that is called GS4.
“There are a lot of great elements on the braai, but GS4 is the
heart of it, and here we’ve been working with all parts of it. To
improve and make it even stronger. So by moving the gas bottle,
there was room for moving the grease management system
~11~
to the centre under the braai. This makes the system more
effective as it leads grease more directly into the collection
tray,” Marc explains.
In addition, the Genesis® II LX takes it up a notch with a side
burner, High+ heat setting for searing at any point on the
cooking grate, and illuminated control knobs.
“But a lot of what we invent consumers will never see or notice.
It’s things like the improved ignition system, the burners and
so on. But people WILL know that when they go to use their
Weber, they're going to have a great experience and that’s
actually what’s it’s all about.”
GR O W IN G F R OM T HE R O O T S
The first Genesis® was introduced in 1985 – setting a whole
new standard for gas braais. Back then all gas braais looked
the same, and people were troubled with issues like flare-ups
and uneven heat. With Jim Stephen and Mike Kempster who
were the Head of Gas Grill Sales and National Sales Manager
back then, and the legendary Weber engineer Erich Schlosser
as the lead, a group was put together with the ambition to
create the best gas braai the market had ever seen. After
intensive work, testing and pushing themselves even further,
they came up with the Genesis® and introduced new features
that have since become legendary. For the past years Weber’s
Senior Manager for Industrial Design, Carmen Lira, has been
tapping into these roots and channelling Weber DNA.
“I quickly found out that the personality of the brand is to be
familiar, uncomplicated, knowledgeable and authentic. People
use words like “performance” and “timeless” to describe
Weber,” she says.
Not least when it comes to Genesis®. There have been a lot of
elements to lean up against in the development of the new design.
“The way I see Genesis® is that it is a classic. So this project
was about what we could do to evolve the design without losing
the equity that we have in our design elements.”
So Carmen started by trying to determine which design
elements are specific to Genesis®.
“When you look at the shroud from a side profile, there are
three curvatures that are very Weber. No one else is executing
their lids in this way. These curvatures are very relevant to
the identity of the Genesis®; when you see the shroud without
the bands, straps and rivets you’ll recognise that it is a Weber
braai. So I wanted to ensure that we would continue this.”
The end result is surely signature Weber. Good-looking and
wonderfully easy to use. What more do you want from a braai? ■
THE NEW GRILLING SYSTEM OF
GENESIS II
®
30 years of braai knowledge, endless research, and a team of passionate and devoted
engineers. That’s the best starting point for creating the strongest BBQ engine.
With the GS4 grilling system, Genesis® II sets a new standard in braaing.
Text Amanda Donovan & Anne J. Thomsen i Photo Weber-Stephen Products
Each component of GS4 was uniquely designed for easeof-use and to provide an unequaled satisfaction to your
backyard braaing experience. Promising burners that are
ensured to ignite every time, smoke infused food that braais
evenly and consistently regardless of where it’s placed on
the cooking grate, and hassle free cleanup; you are able to
focus on what it’s is all about – bringing people together
around the braai.
The GS4 grilling system is composed of four key components:
The Infinity Ignition, High Performance Burners, Flavorizer®
Bars, and Grease Management System. These components
ensure that every aspect of your braaing experience is easy
and reliable; from the moment the burners are lit to the
general maintenance of your braai. And together, create
the strongest grilling engine within every Genesis® II and
Genesis® II LX braai.
*10 YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY
To honor our “Weber for Life” promise, we’re offering
our customers an impressive *10 year warranty for the
exclusive GS4 grilling system. Each component of GS4 was
uniquely designed for longevity; and we are so confident
in the system, that we’re doubling our standard warranty
and offering a lifetime of customer service.
*5 year warranty for porcelain-enameled Flavorizer Bars.

GREASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
The grease management system helps with the
removal of grease while reducing the risk of flareups. Drippings that are not vaporized by the Flavorizer
bars are funneled away from the burners into the
disposable drip tray, located within the catch pan
under the cookbox. Simply remove the catch pan and
replace the drip tray as needed.
FLAVORIZER® BARS
The classic Weber® Flavorizer® bars are angled just
right to catch drippings that smoke and sizzle, adding
that irresistible smoky flavor we all know and love
to your food. Any drippings not vaporized follow the
slope and are funneled away from the burners, down
into the grease management system.
HIGH PERFORMANCE BURNERS
The unique, tapered shape delivers a consistent gas
flow from front to back. This provides ultimate heat
distribution, ensuring that food grills evenly and
consistently anywhere on the cooking grate.
INFINITY IGNITION
The Infinity Ignition is guaranteed to ignite every time.
An internal switch on each burner control ensures that
by turning the knob, the gas will ignite and start each
burner with ease. Backed by a generous warranty,
rest assured that you’ll be up- and-braaing the first
time, every time.

Weber® Briquettes are made from 100% natural
components – carbonized hardwood, starch and
water. It is a high density, good quality briquette,
which results in less powder in the bag, which
in turn means that it is less dirty to handle.
Our briquettes will have you ready to braai in
20 minutes when used with the Weber® Chimney
Starter and two firelighters, and will deliver a
consistent heat for up to 3 hours.

CLEANING GUIDE
Charcoal braais
Gas & Q ® Braais
H If your braai has a built-in One-Touch® cleaning system, you simply
slide the handle from side to side in order to empty the bowl of
ash. The ash falls into the catcher below, empty this when the
ash has completely cooled.
H
Check the hose for damage, holes, cracks, etc. regularly. If you
find any issues, replace it with a new hose.
HRemove the grates and clean them with a grill brush, remove
the dirt and wipe them clean with warm soapy water. You can
ease the process by using Weber
cleaning products.
HIf you notice something that
appears to be paint peelings
on the inside of the lid, these
are actually grease deposits
and moisture that are baked
onto your braai. These aren't
dangerous but they should
be removed regularly, either
with a cookbox scraper or a
sponge, then washed with
soapy water and rinsed with
clean water.
HTo clean the inside of your braai make sure it’s completely
cooled off. Clean the burner tubes with a grill brush in an up
and down motion. Never use the same brush as the one you
use to clean the grates as this could block the small holes in
the tubes with leftover grease. If you have an electric braai,
you should never brush the heating element. Preheat the braai
for 10 minutes. Brush the grates and, if your braai has them,
the Flavorizer® Bars.
HUse a cookbox scraper or a sponge to remove the harmless
grease deposits that may have built up inside the lid over time.
Wash it with warm soapy water. Scrape away any debris from
the tray and wash it. Make sure to repeat this on a regular basis.

LID ON COOKING,
WHATEVER THE WEATHER!
Text Tanya Harris i Photo Weber-Stephen Products
When Weber’s founder George Stephen, invented the
Weber kettle braai back in 1952, it created a braai
revolution. Due not only to its round shape, but equally
because of the lid. The lid simply opened the door to a
whole new universe of cooking methods that had not been
possible on an open grill – and today the lid is still as
important as ever!
THE SIMPLE RULE
Cooking with the lid on and the vents open controls airflow
and allows the heat to circulate throughout the braai.
~19~
This gives you complete control over the temperature and
eliminates unexpected flare-ups, which can char your food
and detract from its taste. It also makes your braai work
like a convection oven, allowing you to prepare larger cuts
of meat like roasts and whole turkey etc. You can bake,
smoke and use all sorts of cooking methods on your braai.
By maintaining the heat and humidity, your food also cooks
faster, while the trapped moisture ensures the meat stays
at is juiciest. So remember to always keep the lid on for an
easy cooking experience and the tastiest results.

CHARCOAL BRAAIS
PROLONGING THE PLEASURE – It’s the weekend, your visitors are due to arrive soon and the
menu has been planned. You have time to dwell on the details, light the charcoal, enjoy the
smells and the crackling of the briquettes and immerse yourself in the ambience. This is the
essence of the charcoal braai.
1 Lid and bowl
5 One-Touch cleaning system
Every Weber® kettle braai lid and bowl is made of quality US
steel, and porcelain-enamelled inside and out in order to
achieve the best heat reflection and rust protection.
Weber’s patented system, whereby a simple movement with
the handle tips the ash into the ash catcher which can then
be removed and emptied.
2 Aluminium vents
Charcoal rails/Char-Basket charcoal fuel holders – keep the
briquettes in place and properly arranged for the desired
cooking method. Each model has rails or fuel holders.
Air vents provide airflow for combustion. The top and bottom
vents should generally be fully open because the air keeps
the briquettes burning. When you have finished braaing, you
can close the vents to put out the fire.
3 Lid thermometer
Grates – rugged material, built for many years of braaing.
Cooking grates are rust resistant, making them easy to
maintain.
Built into the lid, so that you can always monitor the braais
temperature. (Master-Touch®, Original Kettle™ Premium,
Original Kettle)
Cooking area – a wide range of models with diameters of
37cm, 47cm and 57cm.
4 Handle
Made from nylon in order to handle all weather conditions.
On some models the handles include two tool holders.
Wheels – rugged all-weather wheels, making it easy to move
the braai.

Fuel
FOR ANY OCCASION
Briquettes are carbonised wood that is crushed and
mixed with a binder – usually a natural starch – and
then pressed into compact little pillows. It normally
takes a little longer to light briquettes, but the
advantage is that they burn longer. Therefore it’s
always a good idea to choose fuel according to the
food you are cooking.
WEBER® BRIQUETTES
Weber briquettes are made from 100% natural
components – carbonized hardwood, starch and
water. It is a high density, good quality briquette,
which results in less powder in the bag, which in turn
means that it is less dirty to handle. Our briquettes
will have you ready to braai in 20 minutes when used
with the Weber Chimney Starter and two firelighters,
and will deliver a consistent heat for up to 3 hours.

T H E S TA RT E R
Everyone knows that lighting the braai can be half the battle. So there’s only one safe,
easy and quick way to light your charcoal braai: with a chimney starter.
Here are the reasons why …
Large, ergonomic, heat-resistant
plastic handle
Extra heat shield that protects against radiant heat
Cone-shaped wire rack that exposes
more briquette edges to the flame
– securing a faster ignition
Steering handle that
offers greater stability
when pouring the briquettes
onto the charcoal grate
Air holes in the bottom and side, pushing
heat up, creating a chimney effect, so
that one briquette lights the next
NO. 1 BRAAI TOOL
How can a metal cylinder create miracles? Well – who hasn’t
tried having all of the food prepared and hungry guests waiting
– meanwhile the briquettes don’t look like they will ever start?
Really, the solution is quite simple and there's just one way
you need to know. The chimney starter way. Recommended
by braai lovers everywhere, the patented design of the Weber® Rapidfire Chimney Starter secures fast and safe ignition
without the need for any kind of lighter fluid. It’s easy to use
– just fill it with the right amount of briquettes and place it on
top of a couple of lit firelighter cubes on the charcoal grate.
Wait until there are flames in the top layer – then pour out
the briquettes using a mitt and the steering handle. One step
closer to success.
