Questions & Answers

Lid and vent location

is the vent and thermometer located on the same side on the lid, or on opposite sides (as pictured). I've seen them in both locations, I'd prefer them on the same side for smoking, as I'll have a better temp reading and the smoke can travel over my food before it exits.
Asked by: Moe
Don’t rely on the lid temp gauge. Get a probe thermometer and stick it through a potato so that the tip is exposed and not touching anything place it on the grate closest to the meat. Use that as your main temp guide. You can then learn the offset between the probe and lid temp gauge. I just cooked two yard birds and put the probe in between them. Came out perfect. So far they had the best skin on any of my bird cooks.

I just received and assembled this grill and it seems the lid doesn't fit like it should... there is about 1/4 inch difference side to side on the lid. Is this normal?
Asked by: CC
My kid fit perfectly which was opposite my 22 incher which had fitting issues. I would call Weber and see what they will do for you. They gave me a new lid for the 22 (when it was new). The 26 never had a problem. Sorry you’re experiencing this and good luck with a new lid.

Customer Reviews

26 in. Original Kettle Premium Charcoal Grill in Black with Built-In Thermometer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 238.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Charcoal Grill I've Ever Owned I've cooked on many of the original Weber 22" Kettles...and for the past 20 years have cooked on several Weber Genesis propane grills. Besides this 26" kettle, I have a 22.5" Weber Smokey Mountain smoker, and a Weber Genesis 310 propane grill. Since getting the 26" kettle, I have not used the Genesis propane grill at all. I smoke a lot of meat, and grill a lot of meat. The Smokey Mountain is the best smoker I've ever had. I'm convinced, the 26" kettle and 22.5" Smokey Mountain are the only two pieces of outdoor cookers I need. You can actually smoke on the 26" kettle as well. The surface is so large, it's very easy to start your coals on one side, with the meat on the other. I've had it hold right at 225*-250* for several hours. But, of course, that's what the Smokey Mountain is designed for...and it does a fantastic job. $350 for the 26" kettle and $400 for the 22.5" Smokey Mountain...$750 to cook anything you want to perfection. The extra size in the 26" kettle, as compared to the original 22" kettle is well worth the extra price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Kettle, assembly instructions need improv This is the second 26 inch Weber kettle I have bought, the 1st lasted 20 years. These are the best kettles and they have made some great improvements in 20 yrs. However the instructions are not perfect. They neglect to tell you to position the front leg correctly, the leg attachments need to be improved as the design is not easy to lock or change if necessary. And they do not tell you to position the catcher to one side vs the back in order to be able to open the damper fully. Instructions and 1 design feature need definite improvement. Once you get it right then its great. Still the best kettle to own but if they make these corrections then its perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much more cooking area than the smaller kettle I've owned a 22 1/2" kettle for over 40 years (not the same one!) and finally decided to give the larger kettle a try. I cook a lot on the grill and usually have to cook two rounds of food - I should have switched to the 26" kettle a LONG time ago. While it's only 3 1/2" bigger in diameter, it has a lot more cooking area and NO MORE multiple rounds of cooking! It has all the same accessories available as the smaller kettle and you can even but Grill Grates for this model. I can now cook the entire meal at one time and nothing gets cold or soggy anymore. Highly recommend this grill if you cook for more than 3 people at a time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s not a cookout without a Weber! I bought this grill for my boyfriend a month ago. He originally wanted a gas grill because he thought it would be easier to use. I read a ton of reviews saying a Weber charcoal grill was the way to go. Also, that their Fire Starter helps with getting/keeping the charcoal lit. We couldn’t be happier with this purchase. My boyfriend constantly gets compliments of the size of the grill and we grill every weekend! 5 stars from us!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality, Value, Efficient I love Weber’s! The versatility of the kettle whether it’s a low and slow brisket or searing a ribeye steak at 600degrees. I own 4 different Weber BBQ/ Smokers the 26” is my favorite and use it almost daily. I find the 26” is also more efficient on fuel and normally can typically get about 2- 2 1/2 cooks with one chimney of charcoal depending on the duration of cook. When are they coming out with 26” performer?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a Weber I needed more room for bigger cook's. Fits 3 pork butt's with a some room leftover. Fits a nice brisket perfectly 5 slab of ribs with standing rib rack. It got a much deeper kettle to make banking your charcoal for offset cooking work amazing. It's also very easy to keep any temp under 300° easy to control with a little practice. Love this product..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect all Around Charcoal Grill This is the third 26" Weber I have purchased. I am on my second and I recently bought one for my son's new home. We use it 3 or 4 times a week. I especially like the improved hook up for the ash can from my old model. They are well made and solid. The bigger size from the 22" model allows for a much better grilling experience for our usage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, reliable charcoal BBQ Great BBQ - nice and big for a charcoal bbq so more than enough space to feed a family, or can easily be adjusted with the spacers to decrease cooking space for smaller meals. The lid holder is key since there usually isn't somewhere to set down a hot bbq lid when open and this feature is not included in smaller models.
