Go Anywhere Charcoal

I have three Weber grills and a mobile smoker. While they all work well, I have never had a better steak than on my Go Anywhere. Oh yeah, and it's almost 40 years old!

1978 Red Weber Go-Anywhere Charcoal Grill

I bought this vintage red Weber grill at a yard sale 7-19-2015 for $2.00. It took me a couple hours to clean it up but it was well worth the effort. The teak wood handles are in like new condition and the grill is bright red and so shiny. It is in outstanding condition and I have used it to grill steaks. It is so pretty I am going to buy a new one (only comes in black now) and just have the red one on display.

I wish I could upload a picture of it for all to see and enjoy.

The BEST

This grill was a present to my wife and me in1995
Being avid campers this grill came with us every trip has been kicked around beat up misused neglected left out in baking hot sun left out in the rain and snow has been frozen thawed and just generally lived a rough life and to this day works like it did day 1
Used at least 3 times a week never been cleaned other than removing the ashes and scraping the funk off the grill but allowing the carbon build up to become a non stick surface

All I can say it's the perfect grill for its size

A most excellent grill!

We live in northern Nevada. It is usually very windy at our local State Park. This precludes propane. The charcoal Go - Anywhere - Grill is as close to perfection as I can imagine. The more wind, the better! I can load it with charcoal in the right half, and have the left half for indirect cooking. Last week I did two fillets mignon and they came out absolutely perfect. The grill cools down in a very short time and is very good at conserving fuel. We have a travel trailer and the grill packs in the storage area very efficiently. I have a couple of other charcoal grills but they are just about to be history.
The Weber "Go - Anywhere - Charcoal - Grill" is, IMHO, the very best! I have just ordered another one for for our home use.

(I also have the propane version of this grill, which I keep at the ready for sudden small needs - a hot dog or whatever. I have it in a sheltered spot on my back porch.)

They're both good but the charcoal rocks!

Best portable grill

We started to use the GoAnywhere about three years back.This grill beats out all others. It runs very steady with just few coals for indirect grilling or on high heat for steak.

On the grill we made long term jobs over hours and got out very tender food. Our neighbours on camp grounds often ask what this is for a grill and they are amazed. I added a thermometer just by sticking one through the vent and have good overview about the temperature.

Once we made smoked mussles in the shell - oh what lovely. This recipie is from one Weber restaurant in Chicago (Lombard).

Excellent Grill System for outside activities

I bought long time ago this Grill back when I was living in Mexico. I used to grill every week with it. This grill has proven since then that is one of the best portable grills out in the market. Its very practic to carry around, excellent performance with its side ventilation system you can achieve excellent results. Unfortunately I had to leave it in Mexico as I could not take it when moving to the States.
After some years I moved to Germany.. and thought of grilling again. My first choice.. a Weber-GoAnywhere grill, its still surprises me how well it has lasted throught this years.. even a hammer fell on top of it and the coating is almost intact. The aluminum parts have become a little bit rusty but considering here the weather is a little bit extreme i would say its expected.
The only thing I do find a difference between the model i bought back in 2006 and the one I own since 2011 is that the handels seem to screw a little bit loose, specially the upper one on the lid.
Besides that, I just got a new GAS one (Also GoAnywhere 2014) and will see how it performs!

The perfect grille

What can you say. This grille will outlast most bbq's and for it's size, cook a meal for 4 to 6 if you know how to use it and is suitable for the beach, lanai or small party. I use wood charcoal exclusively, with oak added for flavor, similar to what is used in Argentinian grilling. By lining the bottom of the grille, underneath the lower grille with layers of thick aluminum foil, you can extend the life of the grille and protect it from the extreme heat of the wood and salt from the seasonings!
Burn the wood until it is mostly ashed over and bright orange, but still strong enough to withstand the dripping juices.(Experience will dictate, you may burn the food or run out of fuel a few times until you get the hang of it!) Layer the wood with tongs so it is higher on one side and lower on the other, place the cuts of meat accordingly OR leave the ashed over wood even across and cook the thicker portions of meat first and leave the thin pieces and sausages for last. Happy grilling! ;-{ >

Great little grill

I bought my first Go-Anywhere charcoal grill about 1985. At that time it had wooden handles, but otherwise is identical to the current model. It served very well when I had limited space for a grill, big enough for two steaks done just right. The only thing I noticed was that when I set it on a wood table, and left it going for a while, eventually it started to char the wood. My solution was to turn the wood over (it was a big piece of thick plywood in wood frame) and put a heat block under the grill next time. When I moved to a bigger place around 1997 I eventually got a larger grill, and the little Weber was left to fend for itself sort of unceremoniously set outside to brave the elements. Needless to say, the wood handles deteriorated and the legs got rusty, but the main part of the grill was actually in very good shape. I attribute this to the high quality of the bottom and lid portions of the grill.

Meanwhile I got a much larger (different brand) charcoal grill (with wheels) as well as a big stainless grill/rotisserie). Both work well, but I find it's overkill when just preparing food for one or two people. I also got a portable little Smokey Joe but over time its little legs rusted off. Probably because I also set it outside too long!

Recently I started planning a camping trip in my van, and I wanted to bring along a small charcoal grill. I located the little forlorn Weber. Unfortunately the cooking grate for it had been misplaced and probably accidentally discarded - and Weber doesn't currently offer replacements. Because of the situation with the wood handles I decided just to get a new grill.

First I got a Chinese made "Master Forge" portable charcoal grill at Lowe's. It took me two hours to assemble the thing. I noticed that the metal was thin and flimsy, and the porcelain coating flaked off just during assembly. It was just too cheaply made, especially when compared side by side with the old Weber. I decided while it might fit the basic needs it just was too shoddy to keep. So I found a Go Anywhere Charcoal grill at the local Ace Hardware. I'm pleased to say it's got the same heavy duty, quality construction as the original, and I look forward to cooking with it on the road. The Master Forge is going back to Lowe's for a refund.


What I like about the Weber Go-Anywhere Charcoal Grill:

1) Thick gauge metal with durable porcelain coating inside and out.

2) Well thought out damper setup providing even air flow across entire coal bed.

3) Excellent side handle placement.

4) Fully enclosed and smooth bottom section means it can be transported without it scratching anything underneath it, or leaking any remaining ashes.

5) Compact and just the right size for one to four burgers or two big steaks.

6) Ingenious leg system that doubles as lid lock for transport.
