Rated 5 out of 5 by from Char-Baskets and Grates for old-timer Weber Grill Greetings Fellow Barbecues Enthusiasts, First to start, I made a mistake about a month back. My Weber Grill was probably close to 10 years old if not more. Parts are wearing out. The grates and the Char-baskets were falling apart. No fault of Weber, just father time doing its thing after many years of rewarding use. I decided to buy a similar new grill from another competitor whose name I shall not mention. The quality was just not even close. I was thoroughly disappointed. I gave the grill to a friend who needed one and changed my focus. I decided to fix up my old timer and purchased new grates and the Char-Baskets from the Weber Website. As I expected everything fit and worked nicely. My grill was better than ever for use. Of course, the grill is older now and has been through a lot. Doesn’t look as nice as it did in its newer years but works just as good as the competitors on the markets today. In a year or so I will eventually buy another Weber grill like this one. In the mean time a picture or two is worth more than a thousand words and the same with the alluring smell of the meat smothering in the heat if you could somehow smell it. It’s Saturday, July 28, 2018 and I’m going to do some fine grilling. Have a great day folks and Thank You God! Satisfied Weber Customer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Barbecue necessity These charcoal holders are perfect for indirect heat for long slow cooking. Add the drip pan to catch fat so that flare ups don’t occur and you can cook for 6 hours with one addition of charcoal! In my general case both sides don’t keep burning but one side is enough to keep 300 degrees for 3 hours. It’s smazing for a Boston Butt or lamb shoulder. My highest compliments to Weber for these accessories. Oh, add the additional roast rack too to elevate the roast a bit for that convection mode cooking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you I love the product - thank you. One small request: could you please make some larger baskets? I like to use an indirect heating method, whereby you create 2 zones. I use one basket, on one side and then put the meat opposite the basket. If you could offer a larger basket (so that it holds more charcoal), it would help provide another option. No complaints! Just a "larger basket" request. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, Durable, & Necessary As with all Weberproducts, these simple devices seem to last forever. I’ve been using my first pair for over 10 years and they show no signs of wear. We bought a vacation home and, after receiving my kettle grill, I soon discovered how much I needed an additional set of the racks. They are essential for proper grilling. Thanks Weber for many years of great foods cooked with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loyal Weber ower Thank God for Weber to keep making parts for my gas and charcoal grills which are 20 years old and still getting rave reviews for excellent meals. I own the original performer charcoal grill with the stainless steel table. And a special made for frozen foods (genesis model) with smoker and side burner gas grill. Hope to keep them forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indirect is the way to go I bought these to replace the original ones which were falling apart. I am doing more and more things with indirect heat using the baskets and using chips for smoke. This is a great way to get BBQ flavor but keep things moist. It is good for salmon, other fish an d pork.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for small patio cookers These baskets work well in the smallest Weber grill though best one at a time. Do a few wings. Plank some salmon. Great experience for small scale, tight space applications. I would not recommend these on the 22” Weber because it’s size overwhelms the size of the baskets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Char Baskets simple concept/design that works great. allows for flexibility as far as location of coals/heat. allows for direct heat/fire to cook over or indirect heat, almost like smoking, when separating the baskets to the outside of the grill space.
Date published: 2018-01-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes setup more simplified and efficient. Large enough to hold whole chimney of charcoal, but small enough to allow plenty of room for drip pan. Good quality for the price and price makes them very affordable. Everyone needs to have these because they are so versatile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Great for cooking brisket. Just slide the baskets to the sides, throw some wood chips on the coals theough the hinged grill, put the brisket in the middle, lid it and forget it. Perfect brisket everytime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this grill. Easy to start & clean, maintains consistent temperature when indirect cooking. I'm especially fond of the rotisserie, its so simple to set up with the hide away motor and, the food tastes great of course.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice tool Bought my first set several years ago. I used the first set up. They pretty much deteriorated from the heat of the coals. I use them a lot. They help contain the coals and where you want the heat

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Accessory I have a Weber Charcoal Grill with the Gas Lighter feature. I love the Char-Baskets, Put them in the middle to light and then where you want them to do grilling, or smoking. Great Product !!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great device and very reasonably priced. Just purchased as a replacement for the original basket that came with the grill. The original lasted 16 years. I quite easily BBQ 150 days per year. I definitely got my monies worth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for indirect heat cooking. Since I now have four 22” charcoal grills, I needed two more sets of the char-baskets. These are really great for cooking with indirect heat such as doing turkeys or large roasts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can’t go wrong They are just a pair of steel baskets, but I needed them because my old ones were crumbling from years of use. I couldn’t find new ones, except on the Weber site. They are nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A necessity These baskets are a must, use less charcoal and lets you put the heat where you want it. Fill one basket or both, move them to the sides and you have an oven. Just great!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient 2nd time purchasing this item (my current ones are now burned thru - lasted about 5 yrs). If you're doing a lot of indirect cooking, these critters are convenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding and Useful for Indirect Grilling I have used the Weber wire charcoal rails for years and switched to these and I am glad I did. Easier to contain the coals. Works as planned. Thanks Weber.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The new char baskets The new baskets are way better than the original. They are bigger,wider and are the perfect size for burgers or placed together for a large steak.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have. Very versatile and hold just the right amount of charcoal. Also makes it easy to collect unburned or partially burned coals for reuse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Char Baskets work greatt I bought the Char Baskets to compliment my new Weber grill. They keep the charcoal corralled for effortless indirect heating.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No others I am on my 5th set. I like the concept for direct and indirect cooking. Just would like to see them last longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A necessary replacement Had to replace baskets. Grill would not work without them. I wish they were more durable.
