How well do you know your Weber® charcoal kettle? (If it’s better than your spouse and kids, take a step back.) Whether you are new to the game, or a seasoned professional, here are a few commonly overlooked features of our Original Grilling System:
Since it isn’t a painted surface, paint cannot flake off the lid interior. If you see flaking, it is a buildup of smoke and grease and can be cleaned off with soap and water.
Opening the dampers will allow the heat to build, while closing the dampers will cause the fire to die out. Keeping the damper in the middle helps maintain a moderate constant cooking temperature necessary for a turkey, for example, when charcoal is added each hour.
Place either crumpled up newspaper or lighter cubes in the bottom under the chimney starter and light. In 20 minutes you’ll have ashed-over charcoal ready to go.
Place the charcoal directly onto the charcoal grate for direct cooking or in the Char-Basket™ Charcoal Fuel Holders for indirect cooking, and preheat your grill for 10 to 15 minutes before adding your food.
There are more features, of course, but the core of the Weber OGS is durability, longevity, and ease of use so that year after year you can depend on your Weber charcoal kettle.
