Very nice grill. I had bought about 5 other webers grills before over the pass 35 yrs and really like them. I have even cooked my turkey in THANKSGIVING in it. When finished grilling all I needed to do was close everything up and the charcoal that remained in there just turned off. I just used the very expensive grill Sunday March11,2012 and had a hard time controling the flames even though everything was shut close.Just too much air seeping through. I setup the grill Sat. March 10 and it was shipped with one leg bend very bad and had to unbend it so the grill could stay upright. I would not recommend it especially at this price $160.00.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by iJonL Very nice grill, poorly packaged, received damaged
This is second one I've ordered on line over the years. Both arrived damaged. 1st was 18-1/2" that I still love and use, after I'd given my 22-1/2" to my daughter and her family as it's just my wife and I at home. Big mistake, still need the large size for ribs and chicken pieces. I am dyed in the wool Weber, also have had for about 10-15 years now a propane silver series, still works like a charm. I have looked at other models with more bells and whistles, even went so far as to bring another propane grill home and set up before I realized it wasn't the quality of my Weber and returned it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dan Weber Kettle = "Real Grilling"
I have been a gas griller for many years but I have struggled to reproduce the flavor that my father created with his Weber Kettle. I finally gave up and bought a Weber One-Touch Gold charcoal grill. I have 'tricked it out' with a number of accessories and I couldn't be happier. Charcoal, combined with wood chunks is vastly superior to the neutral flavor of gas. Home Depot offered the grill with free shipping to my home...a big plus! I know that most folks use gas grills because of their ease of use. Consider however, that a chimney starter will bring hardwood or briquets up to temperature in a very short time and the addition of a wood chunk or two will produce flavors unmatched by any gas grill!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MOOSEHEAD Quality made grill
This grill is well made and much heavier than most charcoal grilles.Weber has excellent customer service.The lid on the grill I received was chipped and bent.After calling weber customer service I received a new lid within a few days.I bought this grill because of the ash catcher.I have had one of these grilles without one for 25 years that is still in use.Also have a weber gas grill.Excellent products.The only thing I dislike about this grill is that it does not have the wooden handles.

I purchased this BBQ for our employees to use at our office. The BBQ has a container underneath that not only catches and contains the ashes it also has a lever to open and close the bottom ventilation chamber for the briquets. This is a very sturdy product. The lid has a hangar mount on the inside of it so you can hang the lid off the BBQ outside handle. The grill screen has a similar bend in both handles so you can do the same.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BillBBQ3 Great Grill!
We had our previous Webber since 1990. Left out, uncovered all year long. Worked great for countless meals. It owed me nothing. The new grill is awesome! Much improved! A great grilling experience! The new hinged grate is super for adding wood or coals. The ash containment system is excellent! I would reccomend this grill to any one who still grills for real.... Coal and wood.

It is harder to get use to than I thought. A grill is a grill but it is either too hot or not hot enough. I am sure it is to do with the amount of air the coals are getting or not getting and the amount of coals used. Hope I can learn the "just right" method soon. It is very sturdy and should last a while.

I've had this model grill (in red) since March 1995 and after all these years it's still fantastic. Granted I've had to replace almost everything but the legs and the kettle itself over the years from a lot of use, but Summers just wouldn't be complete without Big Red. I hope to pass it on to my kids someday!
