I have read it in many forums saying that this is an all-in-one package. You can grill, smoke big or small portions.
It is really true. I am a very experienced griller with charcoal or gas. I have a total of 5 BBQs: Weber 26.75, Weber genesis S330, Broil King Big Steel Keg, Weber Q300, Weber GoAnywhere grill.
This 26.75 was actually my second BBQ. it does everything. Yes maybe it dies not retain heat during Canadian winters at -40, but other than that you can do anything. The only problem is that is like an American car. You spend a lot (and I mean a lot) of charcoal because it is huge. After this, I bought my BSK. WOW what a difference. I would smoke with 1/10th of the charcoal for 10 times longer. And charcoal is not that cheap, so it makes a difference.
At this point after trying all off these if someone asked me to choose one and only one, I would have a very hard time between the 26.75 and the BSK.

You can't beat charcoal for grilling and you can't beat the Weber 26" for a barbeque. It's worth every cent and has enough grill space to feed a small platoon. Well built, easy to assemble and awesome to use. I'd give it six stars and two thumbs up if I could.

I have enjoyed reading the Customer Reviews and share a common thread with most of the people. I love cooking with charcoal, owned a 22.5 for 18 years. It was time for a new one. The Weber Ranch Kettle was out of my price range, especially considering the number of times I would use it at maximum capacity. But for just 25% of the cost of a Ranch Kettle, a 26.75 was on its way to my house. The additional cooking area is prefect. This one contains two great features missing on the larger grill, the ash catcher and the lid thermometer. Only 45 minutes from box to the initial seasoning of the grill. Cooks like a Weber, the best.

With a 508 sq. in. stainless-steel hinged cooking grate, the Weber One-Touch Gold 26-3/4 in. Charcoal Kettle Grill is one of the finest grilling machines you can get. It consists of a porcelain enameled bowl and lid with the Tuck-Away lid holder. The grill has the factory assembled stainless-steel One-Touch cleaning system for easy cleanup, 2 Char-Basket charcoal fuel holders and a built-in thermometer with a heat resistant handle. I'm not a Mr. Fixit but I put mine together in less than 30 minutes and was grilling in 45. One of the few win/win situations left.

We got it as a gift and it is an awesome grill!! we used it in the winter and the food grilled hot and was so delicious !! lots of space to grill on too. Fits about 20 small lamb chops , 5 burgers, 4 corn , 6 chicken thighs , 1 rib eye and 6 sausages all together with still a little room around the edges to spare just to give you an idea. Two pieces of advice the charcoal separators come with this model so you don't have to buy them separate. Also you should get the cover. It covers great and protects from the elements well. Overall super happy and would recommend .

This is my first charcoal grill. I find it easier to control the temps with the Weber than any of my gas grills could. I have used it several times in the first two weeks with no problems. I have cooked a wide variety of items in a short period and everything has turned out great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SS24 Great product, great customer service
I have been a Weber owner for 18 years. I own a Weber Silver B gas grill and a 22.5" kettle grill. The two products have performed well (never had a problem) and influenced my decision to upgrade the kettle grill. So, I purchased the 26.75" One-Touch Gold. When it arrived, I noticed that there were imperfections in the enamel on the lid and the bowl. I didn't think that the imperfections would have a material impact on the performance, but contacted Weber customer service to confirm. After sending Weber photos of the defects, they promptly sent me a brand new lid and bowl; arrived in three days and flawless! So happy that I stuck with Weber. I will continue to purchase their products.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Liz58 Weber One-Touch Gold 26.75" Charcoal Kettle Grill
I gave this grill to my husband for his Birthday this year. He has always cooked our Thanksgiving and Christmas turkeys on a Weber. Oh, so juicy and golden brown! When I found the large kettle I had to get it for him. He slow cooked a 24# turkey for Thanksgiving. We have two gas grills but there isn't anything better than good old charcoal gilled burgers and steaks, not to mention turkeys. I can't say enough abou this grill. You won't go wrong with a Weber. If the 26.75" is too large for your needs the smaller ones cook just as well. WAY TO GO WEBER!
