All Weber barbecues are so technically sophisticated that the distance between the heat source and the food, as well as the volume of the kettle barbecue, are optimally calculated to ensure the correct and controlled mix of heat circulation and air supply.
A key element of this control is the lid. The lid ensures that heat is kept within the barbecue, and coupled with the air vents, allows you to precisely control the heat. It opens up a world of menu opportunities, allows you to use the various BBQ methods and ensures that the food is gently cooked on all sides, delivering a faster and more even cooking process. That’s when the real fun begins. That's why lid on cooking is the cornerstone of barbecuing the Weber way.
