    What model Summit is this?





    What model is this Summit Grill is this and what is a ball park used value?

    Is it a good grill like the older Genesis Grills?

    It's a 600 series because it has 6 burner knobs not 4.

    It's an older style so it is not a 670.

    It has no side burner, so it is not the top 600 series for its year. I think that would mean it has a lower model number than 650. I'm not exactly sure which.

    My opinion is I would think it is worth 500 to 600 depending on if the condition is good to very good. If it needs new parts (grates, burners, flavorizer bars) or elbow grease, I would deduct that from the total. I would also make sure the firebox and frame had no rust-through spots.

    It's a Summit 650. It and the 450 are top notch grills (performance wise). For some reason Weber never saw fit to outfit these with smoker burners or rotisserie burners so for rotisserie they're not optimal (though I am sure the 650 would do better than the 450). Side burner or no they were called x50. There was an open cart design for them at one time called x25 and there was even another that was set up as a no lid type (supposedly Aussie type) but I don't know the nomenclature they used for it.
    Only trouble zone is the front of the fire box where the burners poke through. They rust out and Weber in their infinite wisdom did not see fit to support the grills for this issue (even when they were under warranty) leaving many of us (like myself) with either expensive boat anchors or having to scrounge around for the part(s) or trying to fabricate them.
    I have a 450 version with side burner. It's pretty much my daily driver. I've been able to scrounge up some parts to keep it going. Love the thing even though Weber let me down on it. So will never buy another new Weber product again but that's another story.
    Hard to give you a price for it. Depends on going rates in your area and so on

    Thanks guys... so the advantages with this Summit over an older genesis is more heat? better heat control and more grilling space and a stainless grate that will last forever?
    Anything else?

    Thanks Kevin

    They really don't get any hotter than a Genesis and the 4 burner model is the same size as the Genesis (grill grates can even interchange). Obviously more control with 6 burners you can do far more and it will be easier to "zone" it. I can tell you these models do not perform that well though in a rotisserie function due to burner layout and lack of a dedicated rotisserie burner

    If the firebox is rusted through, it's not worth very much.
