Default Question for Weber Spirit ii e-210 owners

Hi everyone,

I'm about to buy a Spirit ii e-210. I read that flareups are well controlled on this grill. Although that's a nice feature, there are often times when I want to create controlled fire (eg. for torching the fat on the edge of steaks). For those of you who have used this model,
Are you able to get direct flame under the food when you want it?

Thanks folks, any input is appreciated.

Yes you can. I usually use GrillGrates and they keep most of the flare ups down. If I need direct flame I'll take a section of the GrillGrates out.

Hey that's good to hear. Thanks!

Just wondering. Can you get those flare-ups with the lid open or do you have to keep the lid closed to get that heat?

(Sorry to get so fussy)

I have the Spirit 320 and the Spirits are very versatile. 600+ degrees is no problem. Just pull out one of the Favorizer bars. You get plenty.
