Love my Weber

Absolutely love our new Weber. Have already used it for slow cooking short ribs and high heat for charcoal chicken.
Was a little tricky to put together but now it feels sturdy and is easy to clean Show details ·  1

Great product

I bought a Weber Kettle at Christmas time and despite its basic concept they are extremely versatile in what they can do - low and slow, hot and fast, smokey, grill, roast - it does it all. Does anyone know if you can get a cover for these kettles? As I want to protect it from the elements. Show details ·  1

Great weber with the Olive Pip briquettes

I have been doing bbq's for years and love my Weber, this is my second weber and I recently discovered a bbq briquette made from olive pips, no fumes, no chemicals and the heat lasted well, I purchased these from my local butcher in Adelaide. Show details ·  2

The test of time

I got my Webber for my 21st birthday, I’m now 56 and still use it nearly every weekend. I love the snake method low and slow for pork shoulder and ribs Show details ·  1

Great quality

I purchased this BBQ for my husband as a gift. It is fantastic quality (that you would expect from Weber) and cooks food beautifully. It has a wide range of accessories available and you can cook so many different things on it...... even does great pizza on a pizza stone. Easy to clean and copes well out in the weather with a cover over it. We had a cheap kettle BBQ prior to the Weber and the quality and finished product is far superior. Definitely worth the extra money. Show details

Lasted 10 years and still going strong!!!!

Nothing beats a nice wagyu steak on a weber bbq, I've had mine for over 10 years and it must have done hundreds of bbq's during that time. It's literally unbreakable, I just keep it outside where it bears the brunt of rain, hail and sun without any problems.
I've fed over 30 people at a time, I recommend using real wood coal rather than bbq briquettes because you can definitely taste the difference. Show details

After almost 50 years still the best

Still a fantastic product despite only minor changes, over the last few decades. Yes loved the old wood handles - but they did rot, so okay with the new ones.
If you want a charcoal bbq that will do everything from low and slow, to super hot steering you can not go wrong with a Weber Kettle.

While it might be slightly more than similar items from cometitors - it comes with a 10Y warrenty, with excellent customer service - and will last a life time. Show details

Everything tastes great cooked on the Weber! Very Hardy, no maintenance

Can cook anything and everything on the Weber, especially low and slow meats like beef jerky or kleftiko lamb. Indirect heat method or direct method of cooking simply achieved, just move charcoal baskets under the grill. No maintenance required for any of it yet after 17 years! Simply constructed. Very robust. Ash is simple to remove, just pull lever side to side. Did buy a cheap cover to throw over during winter months which has been replaced a few times.

Good

I bought it for my husband in 2000 and still work now. Made beautiful BBQ. Easy to wheel it everywhere you want to be, easy to clean the cold ashes from the burnt charcoal. The only complaint I had when I clean the grill, make sure you clean after every use so the dirt not build up and make sure you have big kitchen sink to wash it.

Good portable and easy to use kettle bbq

Overall it's a good and easy to use kettle BBQ which does what it's meant to do. A few perks I really like and the vent controls on the lid and bottom of the BBQ to control air flow and heat, there's a hook so you can put the lid on the side of the BBQ while grilling. It's fairly decent sized so you can put quite a few things on it to cook. The only negative is its quite hard to clean and will require a good scrubbing after each use.

Inherited this - love it!

I inherited (nicked) this from the old man. It's at least 15 years old I think because I remember it when I was a kid and they have not changed at all. Gave it a clean up and bought some charcoal - 20 minutes late BBQ heaven. Smokey and delicious like I remember. This is the way to go people, gas barbies are not REAL barbies!

Real BBQ flavor maker!

I am abig Weber fan and the real charcoal kettles are my favorite Weber's . Sure, yes, they take longer to get going and even a bit of skill and experience to use properly but they REALLY pay you back with flavor in the long term. BBQ is well made from quality metals and should last many years!

Has anyone tried to cart the bbq in a sedan and home after using it? I am not sure if it will be too hot for too long after use and if it will even fit in my boot as its all screwed together.. mmm thinking?

Thanks Weber team, I chose the CUBE by Heston Blumenthall and it was perfect for a compact beach bbq.

Haven't had a Weber Compact Kettle for a number of years,(Not sure if they still make them) and have missed it, as it was a brilliant performer.

Last one we had was RED, and was given away when we last moved house, and therein lies the problem, the Mrs wants another RED one. Any Ideas, ??

The only way to get one would be second hand,gumtree or eBay but would be very rare to find a red compact that said I've got a brand new one never used (black) for sale

Thank you for your reply. Rare indeed in red. Unfortunately Black does not cut it with the Mrs, but thanks for the offer,

Cheers
