Questions & Answers

Is the cooking grate hinged on the 18” model?

Asked by Jean May 27, 2019
6
Answers

Hello! The cooking grate is not hinged. Thanks!

How big is the grill grate?

Asked by Scoot77 January 6, 2019
6
Answers

The grill grate covers the entire bottom half of the grill. As soon as you take the lid off you’ll have an area big enough to grill just about anything you want. I’ve grilled steaks & burgers at the same time several different times with this grill, I highly recommend this grill.

How much charcoal do you use per use?

Asked by Ted July 15, 2018
5
Answers

Well, if you buy a small bag, I use about half per cookout. I usually only make a couple of things and it is perfect for that. If there are more items, just a little bit more, but it lasts for a long time. One thing...Leave the bottom vent barely open and the same with the top vent, once the coals are white. You almost can't burn anything with this grill even if you try! I prefer the natural wood lump charcoal. It burns for a long time. Good luck!

Is the cooking surface height adjustable?

Asked by CA62 May 21, 2014
4
Answers

I ve use Weber for over 30 years and the cooking surface seems to be perfect if you keep coal level no more than 2 layers and use the lid.

footprint dimensions of grill?

Asked by randy April 14, 2012

Answers

Not much more than 18 1/2" if you look at the pic.

Does the 18 1/2 One Touch Silver Charcoal Kettle have a place to hang the lid of the grill?

Asked by zmussel March 12, 2013
3
Answers

Yes - there's a hook built into the lid, it just hangs on the edge of the grill.

Does the latest run of the 18.5" kettle have the new type of bowl handle with the integrated tool hooks?

Asked by Weber4Ever July 30, 2014
2
Answers

No, but you can balance the spatula on the lip under the lid handle and it won't get too hot to handle from there.

How much smoke does the grill give off?

Asked by weber February 25, 2014
2
Answers

The grill emits as much smoke as you allow. You have control of the upper and lower vents. If you close both vents it will cut off air and gradually the fire will go out. The amount of smoke is also related to the type of charcoal or wood that you are using and the how you start the fire. I recommend you ensure the fire gets off to a fast start with dry wood or charcoal if you want to minimize smoke.

Ashes

Asked by stillLeaks May 12, 2016
2
Answers

Use the bottom vent blades and the handle under the grill. Go back and forth and the used ashes will drop onto the bowl underneath. Then turn the spring clips around and remove the bowl and dump it. Pretty good system. Do it after every use though. Otherwise, the bottom will rust.

Are there accessories available, like a rotisserie?

Asked by Joe April 27, 2018
2
Answers

Hello Joe, There is no rotisserie option for our 18" models. Additional separate accessories include items like covers, grilling tools and tool hooks. Thanks!

So many friends have congratulated me on my Weber. I keep hearing how well it endures over the years. Since getting this Weber a month ago as a gift, I've been grilling every weekend . I always look forward to experimenting with new techniques and recipes and then sharing a great meal with loved ones. It's now the center of my social life!

Excellent quality and even better warranty
Customer review from weber.com logo
Own it for about two years, it’s a well done product with a fantastic warranty and a tremendous customer service. After countless bbqs and grillings some of its components were destroyed, but the 5-year warranty includes everything so they sent me a new set of the cleaning system and a charcoal grate, now it looks brand new again.

Over 10 years and still going strong!
Customer review from weber.com logo
I love my 18" grill. It is my go to of all my grills. I've done everything on this small wonder. I've grilled hamburgers, steaks, and pork chops. I've smoked and slow cooked pork ribs, pork sholder, and jerk chicken. The only thing i tend not to do is the very long slow cook which are reserved for my Weber Smokey Mountain. So easy to keep at temp and for the cost you can't beat it.

Long life
Customer review from weber.com logo
I purchased my Weber charcoal grill in 1984 the year I got married. I have used it often and I am very proud of my grill. My wife says it is time for a new one, what do you think? It’s take time to burn in a grill to where it cooks just right. I love my grill !!

Excellent learning tool for grilling and smoking
Customer review from weber.com logo
This is an excellent starter grill to learn the basics of charcoal grilling and smoking. It is very forgiving with setup mistakes and I was able to smoke a 5.5 lb pork shoulder on it over an 8 hour period.
