  1. Hi. First time poster here and I currently own a Weber Genesis Gold gas grill that lasted 15 years. Time for a new grill. My old grill came with bare cast iron grates from Hope Depot that lasted 4 years... too much maintenance and they started to rust, so I replaced with PCI that lasted 11 years (never rusted). Flavor bars were replaced twice in 15 years... but probably could have been replaced a third time. A few concerns: 1. I really like the EP-3xx in Smoke color... I would gladly pay the extra $50 over the cost of an E-3xx just for the color alone. But my concern is the SS grates. I've never had SS before and don't know if I would like them. I guess they'll never rust if I care for them... just like my PCI never rusted after 11 years of use. 2. Do I need the sear station? I guess ignorance is bliss . I thought I was getting good sear on the old Genesis by preheating to 550, searing both sides, then lowering to 350 or so to cook indirect. But after seeing photos of dedicated IR burners, I now see that I was not. I really want a Weber and they don't have IR sear burners. Does the Genesis Sear burner really work work well and worth the money? 3. GrillGrates. I am considering GrillGrates (mainly if I go with the E-310)... saw plenty of youtube videos... then i read something about they are needed for grill that have poor heat... but webers are not in that category. So... would 2 GrillGates be worth it for searing if I go with the E-310 grill? What if I go with the E-330? 4. Finally, it did cross my mind to just get the plain E-3xx in one of the standard colors... and when the flavor bars need replacing, I could replace with heavy gauge RCPlaneBuyer flavor bars. If the PCI grates ever chip and rust, then I won't know what to do Thanks again.. -T
