Those looking for a classic design with a few convenient extras plus a little extra cooking space need not look further than the Weber Original Kettle Premium Charcoal Grill, 22.5". The design is sleek; the result is delicious.
As with all Weber grills, this kettle's lid and bowl are constructed of premium porcelain-enameled steel--which means not only does heat radiate evenly, but the grill will survive if it's left out in the rain. The cooking surface is 22.5" of prime cooking area.
When designing this grill, Weber clearly kept convenience in mind. The grill's plated steel cooking grate has two built-in hinged side openings that make adding more charcoal briquettes easy and safe. When the lid's not in use, it can hang from the bowl the Tuck-Away lid holder. The grill is durable, too. The porcelain-coated steel bowl and lid are exceptionally strong and designed never to rust, fade, or peel. The grill's aluminum vents and ash catcher won't rust either, and its tripod base, nylon handles, and all-weather wheels--besides being exceptionally sturdy--make the grill remarkably easy to maneuver. Weber's patented One-Touch cleaning system--a clever setup of lever-activated blades--sifts ash out of the kettle and into a cooking-pot-shaped ash catcher. You never have to get your hands dirty--and emptying the kettle takes only a few seconds.
To top it all off, Weber throws in an owner's guide filled with cooking tips and time-tested recipes.
