I was lured to buy the Lynx for the rotisserie and sear burner and the idea that this was truly a professional outdoor kitchen.
My Summit has a rotisserie and sear burner. I use both all the time.
I've posted this before, but the difference between the Genesis and Summit series is primarily BTU's, cooking area size and porcelain/stainless steel cooking grates and flavorizer bars.
