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 4.6 out of 5 by 254.
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!
Date published: 2019-06-12
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?
Date published: 2019-06-12
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 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stellar 4.5 performance from a great grill Been using the 26" Weber for the past year, mostly for smoking ribs, pork butts and chicken. The kettle holds temps and is very consistent overall. I would say my rating is actually a 4.5. I would ding it a half point for the flimsy handle on the hood. It always feels like it's about to fall off (not that it ever has).

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!
Date published: 2019-07-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Space! The extra space is the best part about this grill. It's nice to be able to have a couple cast iron pots on the grate and still have room for food. Though it has a little trouble getting up too and over 500* for really hot indirect cooking. I suppose you would need more than just one chimney of coals.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Love the outcome! Grilled chicken for the first time and very happy with the right kind of end product, just done right, preserved fluid, and spices absorbed to the core. Would indulge in it with meat again soon, and is the right investment. Gave away the gas one and settled for this natural fuel for the flavor
