What is the Weber GS4 High Performance Grilling System?

In 2017 Weber relaunched its iconic Genesis line of gas grills and renamed the series. There were a number of changes that warranted that renaming of the series.   These changes include new styling, the roll out of four and six burner grills and the inclusion of the Weber GS4 High Performance Grilling System.

The name “GS4” is shorthand for the idea that Weber upgraded four components on the Grilling System.  The four upgraded components are: – Burner Tubes – Flavorizer Bars – Grease Management – Ignition

Changes to the Burner Tubes

Weber developed rectangular, tapered burner tubes that are meant to even out the flame pattern across the whole tube.

Changes in the Grease Management System

Weber moved the grease tray back to where it used to be for the Genesis 1000, Silver and Gold grills.  This is not actually an upgrade but a throwback to an original design that worked.

Changes to the Ignition System

In my opinion this is the only exciting aspect of the GS4 High Performance Grilling System.  Weber has named the new module the Infinity Ignition System with the name reflecting how long they expect the system to last.
