    An Introduction to Weber & Grilling Experience

    Over 65 years ago George Stephen cut a metal buoy in half and then added a grate & three legs, thus creating the iconic kettle barbecue. Ever since then we’ve been making grills of the highest quality.

    However, we don’t just manufacture barbecues. Our mission to is for everyone to “Discover What Grilling Can Be.” Because we are driven by that same desire that inspired George to back in 1952, to improve the barbecue experience.

    Our comprehensive range of high-quality grills & innovative accessories make lighting, cleaning & cooking on your barbecue effortless. We’re also committed to ensuring that Weber owners get the most out of their barbecues. We teach how to barbecue the Weber Way through our range of cookbooks, recipes, apps and hands-on experiences.

    Experiencing what’s possible on a Weber barbecue is the one of the most effective ways to both acquire and retain both B2B & B2C customers. As such we carry out numerous experiential activities. We create experiences for our B2B customer to sell-in our new products and train their store staff.  We demonstrate our products and brand at both key consumer events and at retail stores and finally we offer hands-on barbecue courses at retail stores (WBC) through the Weber Grill Academy (GA); our partnership with cookery schools.
