Great Grill! Cooks excellent

byjcaruso13 Apr 9, 2010
Helpful? 1 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Quality Construction, Great Design, Durable
Cons large
Recommended it? Yes

I have owned this grill for 3 years now and have gotten better at using it each year! I was a newcomer to cooking with charcoal and indirect/direct heating methods, but it doesn't take too long to learn! I bought this grill specifically for the Weber name, and it has not let me down. It is durable,... Read full review »


Charcoal rocks! So does this grill!

Pros great taste, convenient controls
Cons small cooking area, no adjustment on grill height
Recommended it? Yes

After many years of using a gas grill I got fed up with the lack of taste and last spring got this Weber grill.  Now my grilled food has taste!  The propane ignition system works really well and it actually is more economical than using starter fluid.  I am only on my second propane tank and we...

Pros Durable, easy to use, convenient, excellent flavor
Cons Small propane tanks don't last that long
Recommended it? Yes

This Weber grill is very durable. I’ve just finished my third season with it and it works just as good as when I got it. Some people say you should get a cover for it. I haven’t covered it since I got it and it works and looks just fine.
It comes with a five year warranty and their customer... Read full review »

Pros Great value, Charcoal cooking no time
Cons handles would be nice
Recommended it? Yes

Great product.

If you want charcoal flavor and do not want to wait for it. I've been very impressed with the product.

You do have to put it together, so give yourself an hour and some space to work. I put mine together in the garage. Once together, its a pretty well built... Read full review »


Fantastic grill! Even better with a small addition...

Pros Built-in storage, no-hassle starting, great charcoal flavor.
Cons Small disposable starter tanks can add up if you use it a lot.
Recommended it? Yes

I skipped the charcoal phase most folks go through, so I've been using gas grills for years. This year I decided to get a charcoal grill just to have fun with. I bought this one primarily because of the auto-ignition feature. Basically, it has a propane welders torch built into the base of the... Read full review »


Table top feature

byburlydog1 Dec 29, 2007
5 Helpfuls 6 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Ease of starting charcoal
Cons Flimsy tabletop construction and lack of handles to move the BBQ.
Recommended it? No

I am highly disappointed in this product. The model comes without the handles which it once sported in earlier designs. Without handles, the only way to move it from place to place is to pick it up by the lip of the table top and pull. You have to pick it up to move it because the small plastic... Read full review »


Not So Hot

Pros Well made and cooks okay
Cons Kind of silly idea and just not that versatile.
Recommended it? No

What is it?
I'm not sure I get the point. This is a charcoal grill with a propane starter system. So you avoid the starting issues, which really aren't that big a problem if you know how to start a grill.
Build time and set up is fairly quick, easily done by one person. Our larger Weber... Read full review »


Also Known as the Performer

byrustyscotch Nov 15, 2006
7 Helpfuls 8 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Easy to light, good temperature control, a lot of thought went into the design
Cons Tool pegs are too close to each other, plastic wheels are not very robust.
Recommended it? Yes

What a great, great product.

Having worn out 2 propane grills in 5 years , (and not really happy with either of them), we decided to get back to basics. The big drawback on charcoal was the lighting, but not anymore. Just pile the briquettes in the middle, hit the button and in 20 minutes... Read full review »


Best Weber Grill I Have Ever Owned

Pros Charcoal taste with Gas Simplicity.. IT'S A WEBER!!
Cons I didn't buy the grill sooner..... BUY IT!!
Recommended it? Yes

I purchased this grill based on epinions that I read on the internet. I was not disappointed. This grill works great. Dump charcoal into briquet holders, move holders over flame/gas area, turn gas on, push button, walk away, come back in 10 minutes, turn gas off, come back in another 10-15 minutes...

Pros Starts coals easy, without lighter fluid. Easy to clean. You control temperature. Good...
Cons None
Recommended it? Yes

I bought my husband this grill for our anniversary this year, and he LOVES it! We have cooked on it just about every night! The push button igniter from a propane assist makes it very easy to get the coals started, and you don't have to worry about using lighter fluid. The coals fit into two metal... Read full review »
