Other than the grill being delivered to my store in one very large box (I had to rent the HD truck to get it home) the experience with this grill has been way beyond my wildest expectations. I was a bit hesitant to spend that much on a grill (wish I had a photo of my wife's skeptical look when I told her I was buying this product to replace our 11 year old grill), but I went ahead and did it.
This grill replaces a Webber Genesis Gold-C that had served us well, but whose flavorizer bars were "wilted" and no longer doing their job, leading to flare ups and other problems. I had not had good rotisserie experiences and smoking with the old grill using wood chips inside foil pouches with the old grill just didn't yield the results I wanted. Well, that was about to change!
My first meal after setting it up was doing steak. The grill heated so evenly that all the steaks cooked the same. And then finishing them on the Sear Station put the finishing touch on them. My wife was like "Wow! Maybe you knew what you were doing buying this grill"
My son then did 6 large slabs of smoked ribs. There was plenty of room and again, he remarked at how evenly the grill heated and how easy it was to finely control the temperature due to the large knobs on each burner controller. And the smoke box does put out plenty of smoke, although you may need to reload it if cooking for a length of time. A long metal spoon or scoop works well to do this. And being able to vary the heat under the smoke box has been very helpful. A great feature.
The smoker has also been a popular option. I have used it when cooking tri-tips or ribs and now with turkeys. I did a "test turkey" several weeks before Thanksgiving. The 20 Lb. bird cooked evenly and picked up a nice smoke flavor. I do brine my turkeys and start them breast down while smoking them. You will not taste a better turkey. Way, way better than fried turkey. I did two 15Lb. birds side-by-side at Thanksgiving with great results. And they finished within 3 minutes of each other! We had a friend of the wife as a guest for Thanksgiving She said it was the best turkey she had ever had! And she is a retired chef! Thank-you very much Webber! Also, m underneathy wife, who normally does not eat dark meat said she likes the dark meat almost as much as white meat when I do turkeys on this grill.
While this grill is big and great to have when having a party or having all the grand kids over, I also sometimes just grill a burger or two for my wife and I. This grill still cooks just as well using 2 burners or all 6.
The drip pan is much larger than on my old grill. And it works well. My only real gripe is with the doors underneath the grill. They have a magnetic strip to keep them closed. But one of our dogs has learned how to open them.... and to get to the drip pan. Not pretty. So, I have put a baby cabinet latch on them. That keeps him and his nose out of trouble. This would be the only - and I mean only - fix I would suggest to Webber.
If you love grilled, smoked, and/or rotisseried meat, this is your grill!

I received this grill from home depot.com about three weeks ago and the grill is great! A bit pricey but it definitely has all the features you could want. I love the smoker box and rotisserie, never had a grill with either feature before this.
So far have smoked whole chickens (plural) at once Cornish game hens, country ribs, grilled steak, corn on the Cobb and shish kabobs of vegetables. Everything to date has been great with even temp. control and very little flair ups.

This grill does it all. Great craftsmanship, burns evenly and the sear station for steaks is the best.

I have purchased allot of lower priced gas grills and end up replacing them every few years. This is the most I have paid for a gas grill and I am looking forward to having this grill for many years to come.

The S-670 was very easy to assemble when it arrived; it only took about 40 minutes at the most. The only downfall to not being able to use it immediatly was that the gas hookup on the BBQ was much larger than the one that we had on our house and it needed to be retrofitted by a gas fitter to work. All componets of the BBQ work beautifully and we have cooked many wonderful meals on it! It does not dry out the meat like the cheaper BBQs seem to do, and many have raved how moist the meat is and flavourful the vegeatables are that is cooked on this BBQ! If you love to BBQ, this is definitely the one for you!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by enrolb Having only owned for a couple weeks. The things I like is the grates, the flavourizor bars minimize flare ups (I can cook a whole gill full of bacon with no flare up!), rotiserre works great, heats up real fast, and all the grease goes in the tray instead of leaking out every where!
The Cons are the warming rack gets in the way, should flip up, there should be shelves inside base, and I think the base being steel instead of stainless will rust, especially for the money.
Overall the best bbq I have ever owned in 20 years of grilling!

Great grill, easy to set up, though a bit heavy and awkward for one person. I would recommend that Weber supply a small bottle of leak solution with the grill, or at the very least a good recipe for making it. It doesn't appear to be something the local hardware stores carry. I would also recommend some rubber grommets for the holes that pass the rubber gas line to the outside, and perhaps even the metal line and the spit, to prevent damage from repeated rubbing.
Other than the aforementioned, it is an excellent grill with all the extras one could need.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Zingirl Best Weber I have ever owned!
I have had four Webers', going up first with the kettle, basic Genesis and then a better Genesis. I always dreamed of the Summit and now I have it. IT IS EVERY THING I HOPED FOR. So glad I went for the best in the business. Delivery was great, setup a breeze and I was grilling within an hour.
As a female, I love the look of this in my backyard. It has become a conversation piece in addition to being such a great grill.
