WEBER BBQS

Weber has celebrated perfect BBQs since 1952 with their expert know-how, unique range of products and enthusiasm for all things ‘Weber’. No other BBQ manufacturer can boast such a wealth of experience and knowledge. In the same way we invented the kettle barbecue in Chicago from a simple marine buoy, we continue to develop the whole world of barbecuing bit by bit every day.

CAREFULLY TRANSFER THE COALS

After around 20 minutes, the briquettes can be carefully transferred to the barbecue. It is a good idea to spread the contents of the Chimney Starter evenly over two charcoal baskets or over the charcoal grate. For example, first place a quarter of the briquettes in the left basket, then a quarter in the right basket. Repeat this procedure with the remaining briquettes until the Chimney Starter is empty. This ensures perfect heat distribution.

PERFECT COOKING HEAT FOR UP TO THREE HOURS

You’re ready to start your BBQ! The briquettes will be red hot for up to three hours – perfect for cooking juicy steaks, vegetables or even a whole roast. Place the desired food on the cooking grate, close the lid, wait and enjoy the perfect results. Expert tip: For optimal air circulation and perfect barbecue results, the vents on the lid and bowl should be fully open.

Disposing of the Ash

After the BBQ is before the BBQ! To quickly get the barbecue ready for action again, allow the briquettes to cool fully, e.g. overnight. Do this by closing the vents on the lid and bowl. Once the ash has fully cooled, it can be conveniently disposed of in your compost bin. Expert tip: Disposing of ash is extra easy with the Weber One-Touch system. Simply move the slider back and forth and the ash will fall into the ash pan located below the base.
