UNMATCHED WEBER FLAVOUR:
Some people think it’s hard to justify lighting their Weber® kettle just to cook steaks. The real Weber® enthusiasts know, however, that what the Weber® kettle does for roasts it can also do for steaks and kebabs. Steaks, for example, are cooked directly over real coals (not lava or ceramic rock) with the lid covering them. Natural convection cooking makes them the juiciest steaks you’ll ever enjoy. The smoke from the coals creates a barbecue flavour that is unmatchable. You only have to taste one steak cooked inside a Weber kettle to know that steaks cooked on ordinary barbecues are just that … ordinary.

The legendary Weber® kettle with its classic profile has become synonymous with outdoor cooking and backyard fun.
Weber® charcoal grills deliver exceptional results every time, thanks to their design: curved premium-grade U.S. steel coated with porcelain enamel for even heating, years of dependable service, and plenty of kudos for the chef.
How does indirect cooking work? Looking at the picture you can see that coals are positioned out to the sides while the food is placed on the upper grill between the two fires. The fat from the turkey will drop into the disposable drip tray below. This means that you get much healthier, fat-free cooking without those horrible fat-fires. Weber® call this ‘indirect cooking’ because the food is cooked using natural convection without any fire directly underneath it. Apart from the unforgettable flavour, the great advantage of using this method of cooking is that you don’t have to turn the meat. You’re free to do whatever you want while the Weber® kettle cooks the most extraordinary roast, every time. (Please see the indirect cooking image, model is an example and may vary to the item listed for demonstration purposes).
