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 .

I've owned Webers for many many years, all sizes, even the Ranch kettle. I have to say this is the ideal size for managing heat and having "enough" space to do a decent amount of cooking. I love the upscale features - the insulated handle on the lid vent, the heat shield under the handle, the ash container...also comes with two small charcoal baskets to make indirect grilling a breeze for a novice and the hinged rack is thrown in as part of the deal - love that!
One comment about the temp gauge in the lid - if you want true temp readings, rotate the lid occasionally - there was a big difference on one side the first time I used it and I ended up adjusting my coals a little.
BBQ cooking on Webers is always a joy, but with this grill I have found true joy and happiness.
Thank you Weber! It's like you know me...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by audinator best BBQ machine ever. Great space for all the various BBQ grilling needs. Ash collection is perfect. This is the 26 inch version and is fabulous.
excellent BBQ machine. The room and ash collection and controls are just perfect.. Wish I had had one years ago. My previous regular weber dates back to 1982 and had reached a certain age related decline. I would still have it and use it were it not for a generous family, a father's day and need for more room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CherchezLaFemme It's BIG and does a BIG JOB!
We'd used gas grills in the past, but when our last one died after a particularly cruel winter, we decided to go back to charcoal. The Weber One-Touch Gold at 26 3/4 " is big! We fed 15 guests BBQ chicken, burgers and hot dogs that were done to perfection. The grill lid fits into a side cradle and we were able to hang the tongs and other utensils from the handle. Much more portable than its predecessor, and 12 month 0% financing through Home Depot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KiltedGriller Large cooking surface is a plus
The ability to cook more then one thing at a time is a great plus. Temperature stays constant and easy to monitor. Love it!

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.
