How to Use a Weber Grill
Pizzas are American’s favorite food, but they’re even better with a hint of smokiness. Roasted chicken is another popular dish, especially when flavor-infusing steam makes the bird moist and tasty. With the new Weber Spirit E-210 Gourmet BBQ System 2-Burner Propane Gas Grill or the E-310 Gourmet BBQ System 3-Burner Propane Gas Grill, you can cook fun, change-of-pace meals and bring new flavors to traditional foods.
Weber’s new grills feature a three-part grate system that allows you to swap out the center grate with the included griddle. That means you can grill traditionally, over direct or indirect heat, or think beyond pancakes and bacon to fajitas, paellas, veggie medleys and other exciting entrees and side dishes.
The griddle accessory is just the beginning — and many of the pieces are made of porcelain-enameled cast iron to heat up hot and clean up fast.
- Pizza Stone. Cradled in a convenient stainless steel carry rack, the Pizza Stone goes safely from grill to table.
- Poultry Roaster. Made of high-performing, low-maintenance stainless steel, the roaster uses steam to infuse poultry with flavor. Use the large pan for roasting potatoes and other veggies.
- Wok. This thick-walled wok cooks classic stir-fries to perfection, heats up hot, and cleans up fast.
- Sear Grate. Makes no-fail cross-hatch grill marks on your burgers, steaks and chops.
- Korean Barbecue. Drape marinated slices of beef over this perforated domed specialty item.
- Ebelskiver. Use this European sweet- and savory-filled pancake maker to create impressive appetizers, side dishes, and desserts.

- Prep Time: 20 minutes
- Cooking Time: about 20 minutes
- Special Equipment: Weber Gourmet BBQ System Griddle
- Serves 4 (side dish)
- ½ cup sour cream
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 3 medium russet potatoes (about 12 ounces each)
- 2 large eggs
- ¼ cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- Kosher salt
- Ground black pepper
- Canola oil for frying
- In a small bowl, whisk the sauce ingredients.
- Peel the potatoes and coarsely grate them on the large holes of a box grater. Squeeze out and discard as much liquid as you can from the potatoes. In a large bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Add the potatoes, flour, garlic, 1-½ teaspoons kosher salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
- Prepare a grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat (400 to 500 degrees). Preheat the griddle over direct heat for about 5 minutes.
- Heat ¼ inch of oil in the griddle for a few minutes. Scoop up about 1/3 cup of the potato mixture at a time, and drain off the excess liquid. Form 4 patties in the sizzling oil. With the back of a spoon or spatula, flatten each patty so it is about 4 inches in diameter. Cook over direct medium-high heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until the patties are golden brown and crisp, 4 to 5 minutes per side, gently turning the patties once or twice. Drain the patties on a baking sheet covered with paper towels. Repeat with remaining potato mixture to make 4 more patties. Serve the patties warm with the sour cream sauce.
Tip: As the raw potato mixture sits in a bowl, some liquid will accumulate near the bottom. Drain off that liquid before making the patties and cooking them. Otherwise oil would splatter and the potatoes would not turn golden.
