On the left is a large stainless side shelf with three built-in tool hooks. On some models the shelf can be folded down to save space, but not on the LX E-440. A second side shelf on the right has a nice flush mounted 12,000 BTU side burner for side dishes and warming sauces. The cover is not water proof so rain will get in, but everything looks rustproof. As is often the case, the quick release connector for fuel for the side burner is tricky to connect. The manual shows battery installation for side burner ignition backwards. All Genesis II LP models include Weber's "Precision Fuel Gauge" which measures the LP tank weight and shows your approximate fuel level. Nifty, but hardly precision. Natural gas models are available, but no conversion kits, so decide before you buy.
