    NEW WEBER LOOK FOR SPRING
    Weber, the premier barbecue exhibitor at the show, will keep temperatures
rising at this three-day culinary event with a booth that is bursting with new
grills. The Weber Product Booth 415 will showcase some of the new models that
are part of Weber's new 2007 gas grill lineup and largest product launch in
the company's 54-year history.
    While the superior Weber cooking system remains intact, the new aesthetic
designs are completely re-imagined from the wheels up with all stainless-steel
looks, stunning curves, sleek lines and some in bright lid colours - all to
make a definitive statement in the backyard.
    This year's new gas grills, the new Summit(R) and Genesis(R) series and
the new Weber Spirit(R) line, have raised the bar with great grill design,
engineering and construction, offering many options for every patio, every
deck and every budget.
    Weber's high-end luxury Summit(R) line has four new gas grills
constructed with top-grade stainless steel, sleek lines, and desirable style
features. All include grill lights for after-dark grilling. The pinnacle of
grilling, the Summit S-650, features six stainless steel burners, a
flush-mounted side burner, a dedicated smoker burner, and an infrared
rotisserie burner.
    Weber's popular Genesis(R) line offers a variety of choices in styles and
upgraded features in addition to the comprehensively upgraded looks. Six new
models are available: the porcelain-enameled Genesis EP-310 and EP-320 gas
grills in black; the stainless steel Genesis S-310 and S-320; the Genesis
Premium CEP-310 in four fabulous colours - black, copper, green and dark blue;
and the CEP-320 in black and copper. All feature generous cooking areas and
stainless steel work surfaces.
    A star is born with the new Spirit(R) series placing Weber within reach
of even more outdoor grillers by being the finest entry-level, full-sized gas
grill on the market at a very affordable price.
    Other popular Weber products on display include the extremely popular
Weber(R) Q(TM) gas grill line including the Weber Q 100 and Weber Q 220 - a
group of stylish, portable and easy-to-use grills, and the Weber Flame(TM)
outdoor gas fireplace, ideal for the outdoor room, the cottage or backyard.
Charcoal lovers will be treated to a wide selection of charcoal grills
including the Weber Performer(R) charcoal grill that uses a gas assist to
light the coals fast and the Smokey Mountain(TM) Cooker, the perfect answer
for those who want authentic smokehouse flavour. A wide range of grilling
gadget essentials including an audible meat thermometer, roast holder, saucing
system and stainless steel tool set will also be displayed.
