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.

Weber 26 in. Original Kettle Premium Charcoal Grill in Black with Built-In Thermometer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 273.
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 5 out of 5 by from Compitition Cooking at it"s Best We are a BBQ Competition Team that depend on great products. The results we are able to achieve speak for themselves. Our Weber 26" and 22" are a key factor in our overall ranking as the 2018/2019 #1 Chicken Cook of the year in IBCA (International BBQ Cookers Association) and #5 Overall Ranked Team. Built great and cooks even, we wouldn't use anything else. Next up Our Weber Grill at the New Orleans National Championship.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect size I’ve owned this pit for exactly 3 years now. I also own a 22” and all three sizes of the Smokey mountain smokers. This pit is the “go to” pit for me! I use the charcoal baskets and do mostly indirect cooking and the size of this pit is PERFECT. Quality is there of course just like any other Weber. This one has a stainless grill and I wish Weber only used stainless grills. This grill is still as flat and rust free as it was the day I bought it. My only compliant is that I wish they made this pit with a table option like they make the more premium versions of the 22” and Summit. That would make me go buy another one without question. Thank you Weber for making this and please make one with a table too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So big! I replaced my 22 inch Weber with this one. I fit 72 hotdogs on it! Aside from the size, my favorite features are the thermometer in the lid and the ash catcher at the bottom. The reason it for 4 stars instead of five is because the damper on the bottom of the kettle was installed at the factory wrong. However, with a call to customer service, I was able to take it apart and correct the error. I love my grill!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bigger than you think I added the 26” kettle to compliment my 22” so I could cook large spatchcock turkeys, briskets, etc. This could easily be a family’s only grill as it will hold massive amounts of food. Some say the lid is heavy but I find the lid-holding bale to offset any extra weight. After decades of gas grills, I’m late to the Weber Kettle crowd, but I’m a true believer now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great grill. Top support. I am so impressed with the quality of this grill, the baked on porcelain will mean that it will not rust. I called support, they were the best. I have owned other cheap kettle grills, this grill is in its own league, Weber makes awesome products, if you don’t believe me go to competitions and you will see them winning, and lasting for decades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much room!!!!❤️ I own 13 Weber’s. Smokey Joe, SSP, WSM, Jumbo Joe, Red LE, Pat Pending, Blue Master Touch, and the list goes on. The 26” has basically replaced them all. You can do anything with it. Smoke briskets with a snake method, two zone cooking for the reverse sear. Whatever you want to do the 26” will get you there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Glad I Got The 26 I knew I wanted a Weber kettle, just not which size. I debated the 22 vs the 26 and decided I’d rather have the extra space and not need it than need it and not have it. I got it for my birthday a month ago and have used it every weekend and during the week. I love it and my wife loves me having it!
