One of the best affordable gas grills you can buy is the Weber Spirit series – this is the gas grill that revolutionized grilling.
Weber Spirit grills have 2 or 3 stainless steel burners with up to 32,000 BTU-per-hour inputs, an electronic ignition system, and up to 424 square inch main cooking area.
As you surely don’t want to leave this beauty unprotected in the backyard, the first accessory you should buy is a Weber Spirit grill cover.
Don’t be surprised if the Weber Spirit cover costs a lot more than an ordinary no-name cover – the difference in price is based on superb quality, usability, and durability.
You can read lots of regretful reviews from grill owners who spent a lot of money on a Weber grill, but did not want to pay the price for a quality grill cover, and bought a flimsy one instead.
Why Weber Spirit Grill Cover?
Weber Spirit cover is a full-length, weather-resistant cover, made from heavy-duty vinyl that doesn’t crack in sub-zero temperatures.
Those who buy a Weber Spirit BBQ cover will be surprised how well it fits on their grill, but it is not like a glove. It does not stick to the grill and it can be put on and taken off with ease, even on wet days.
Many owners are very satisfied with the performance of the grill cover in severe windstorms. There are stories about the whole grill being moved by the wind, but the cover doesn’t come off. However, I do suggest taking extra precautions and secure your grill cover against being blown off.
There are people who had their Weber Spirit grill cover for 5 years, and it still looks new. The Weber grill also looks like it was when they bought it, despite the fact that it was heavily used. Users are also really satisfied with the design of the cover, and almost all of them are saying that it does worth the money.
Which Weber Spirit Grill Cover Will Fit My Grill?
There are several Spirit and Spirit II models around, so sometimes it is not obvious which model you should get.
There are Weber Spirit and Spirit II, Series 200, and Series 300 gas grills.
Some of the grill covers are compatible with both Spirit and Spirit II barbecues, but it can get tricky fast. In the chapters below I will explain how compatibility works.
The main takeaway is to double-check which Spirit model you have.
All covers are 26-27 inches deep, and 42 inches tall, but the width varies from 30 inches up to 52 inches. That is the reason why it is important to get the right cover for your Weber Spirit model.
The cover hangs almost to the ground, so it protects the legs, fuel tank, and bottom of the grill itself.
Weber Spirit E-210 Cover
There is a difference in dimensions between Spirit E-210 and Spirit II E-210 grills. The old Spirit E210 grill is narrower.
That is why covers designed for the first-generation Spirit grill will not fit the current new Spirit II.
Old Weber Spirit E210
If you have the compact first-generation Weber Spirit 210 grill with folding side tables, the Weber 7105 is the right cover.
It will NOT fit the new Spirit II E210. Please scroll down to find the cover for the current 2 burner Spirit II grill.
Cover dimensions: 29.5″ L x 25.8″ W x 42.8″ H
Below you can see several alternatives from other brands – Kingkong 7105 and Unicook 7105.
As long as you see the 7105 model number in the product name, you can be sure it will fit your Spirit E210 grill.
A few manufacturers are even including tongs and a grill brush with the cover.
Current Weber Spirit II E-210
Weber 7138 cover fits the current Spirit II E-210 model with front-mounted knobs and 2 burners.
This cover is backward compatible. In other words, it will also fit the old Spirit E-210 with folding tables.
Cover dimensions: 48″ L x 27″ W x 42″ H
If you have a limited budget for your Spirit cover, please check out the 7138 covers from more affordable brands like Qulimetal 7138 and Chefun 7138.
Weber Spirit 220 and 300 Covers
Old Spirit 220 & Spirit 300
For the fixed table Spirit 220 and 300, you need the larger Weber 7106 cover.
Again, find out which generation Spirit grill you have, because the cover for the old model will not fit the new Spirit II E-310 (the new grill is wider).
This cover will also fit the first generation Spirit S-315 and Spirit E-330.
Cover dimensions: 52″ L x 25.8″ W x 42.8″ H
The original cover for this grill is quite pricey these days, so you may opt for a cheaper alternative from other manufacturers. Kingkong 7106 and MissGrill 7106 are decent alternatives to the original Weber 7106.
New Weber Spirit II E-310
Weber 7139 cover fits the current Spirit E-310 model (and the latest Spirit SX-315 Smart Grill) with front-mounted knobs as well as old Spirit 200 Series models with side-mounted knobs.
Cover dimensions: 51″ L x 27″ W x 42″ H
If you are considering a cheaper alternative to the Weber original cover, the Kingkong 7139 and Chefun 7139 are good cheap covers.
