Stainless Steel Flavorizer Bars for Some Weber Genesis & Spirit Grills
Every Weber Spirit, Genesis and Summit gas grill made today use Flavorizer Bars to direct grease and drippings away from the burner tubes, which cuts down on flare ups tremendously.
An extra benefit of Flavorizer Bars is that they help add that "cooked on a grill" flavor to your food. Drippings, marinades and juices from food being cooked fall down onto the hot Flavorizer Bars, and are vaporized and circulate back up to the food and add that great, extra flavor. Due to the function that Flavorizer Bars serve in the grill, they probably take more punishment than any other part. They are subjected to all the heat from the burners below them, and all those drippings from the food above can get them rather greasy and messy.
