Original Kettle Premium Charcoal Grill 22" is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 524.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Daughter's Good Idea I have had nothing but gas grills for years. Had a weber so long ago I almost forgot and I liked it, used it a lot. Well, we needed a grill for the house, I was looking at gas of course when my daughter stepped in and said "get a Weber" you will love it. Reminded me of the time when I had one and the success I had cooking on it so I bought the Original Kettle Premium Charcoal Grill 22. Love it! Easy to use, easy to clean up, cooks just as well if not better than the one I had years ago. Glad I bought it. It has encouraged the daughter to cook on it too. I would recommend it for anyone that wants a top notch charcoal grill. You won't be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from From an Old Guy When I was younger, all the older cooks that were interested in cooking more than hot-dogs and burgers had a Weber. Now I'm the old guy with the Weber. I've had it for about a month. I've cooked everything from burgers to steak, pizza and chicken Parmesan (in a cast iron skillet) on this grill. Follow the directions in the owners guide for charcoal quantities, pre-heating, vent settings, and cook time and you won't go wrong. If this is going to be your only grill, I would buy the larger unit. Two large cast iron skillets won't both fit on the 22" at the same time. I would recommend this product no matter your level of outdoor cooking experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost a forever grill I debated on getting this model, or the master touch. The master touch only comes in black and I already have a black weber in the back yard. But I really wanted the copper color for the front porch. Please make a master touch in other colors. They are slightly higher and have the bailer. Also have a handle on the vent cover. I sacrificed the options for the color. I know.... why.... but I was drawn to the color since I already had a black one in the back. I was torn. Otherwise it’s still a GREAT grill!!!! Great quality. Great design, but you will notice other options for slightly more expensive models with only one color.... black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Invest in it; you won’t be dissappointed I love this grill! Prior to buying I looked over the reviews and decided to take a chance. I couldn’t be more satisfied. Assembly was simple, although it took the most time to align the legs. Used it on Memorial Day for a cookout. I smoked ribs for the first time ever, and grilled multiple other meats. Everything came out perfectly. Adding charcoals is no longer a chore. Clean up was amazing with the ceramic surface. I have never had a charcoal grill that functions as well as this one does and don’t think that I will ever go back to gas or a cheaper model ever. Also, download the Weber instructions for helpful tips on grilling the perfect meat. Thanks Weber.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! I purchased my grill about 45 days ago. I have used propane grills for years, and had forgotten how wonderful charcoal grills are. Everything I have grilled so far has come out at, or very near, perfect! Want a treat? Babybacks, pressure cooked about 14 minutes, soak them in sauce, then grill them on your super cool Weber. Oh.... Yeah.... The texture of bbq with charcoal, is the absolute bomb! My only problem. We had a storm last week and the wind caught the cover and tossed it across the yard, into a retaining wall. It put a small dent in the rim, and knocked about an inch square patch of the ceramic coating off. Bummer! But I still love my baby!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality manufaturing I finally decided it was time to upgrade from an 18” classic kettle from the 90s. It was a hand me down that still had years left of grilling, but I decided I needed a larger cooking surface and some updated features. Weber was the only charcoal grill I would even consider. The quality is top notch. Weber sets the standard in charcoal grills. The fit and finish is great and I love the updated dampers and ash pan. I expect to be using this grill for years to come making memories with family. When the time comes I will hand it down to my son for his first grill, as he continues our family tradition of Weber grills.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best grill I own!! How some guys like buying cars I like buying grills. In my backyard i currently have four grills. Not including my new Weber ( first Weber I ever purchased by the way). I love to sit out side and grill. I was going through grills and looking a reviews trying to find that perfect grill for me. About two months ago I purchased the original kettle premium grill and downloaded the Weber app. The grill was easy to assemble and I wanted to grill chicken quarter legs. I pulled up the app and it told me how to set all my setting and how long to grill it for and it came out perfect and looks pretty darn good in my backyard. Best and only grill I’ll purchase!!! TRUE STORY!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great update to an already great product! I recently bought a new 22" Kettle as a replacement for my old Weber kettle as I did not want to move the old grill. As my last kettle was over 8 years old, I noticed several improvements made on the new model: The heat shield on the lid handle, integral thermometer - don't have to add one myself!, the ash catcher is much easier to remove and replace. Overall a great product! The reason for only 4 stars (and 3 stars for design) is due to the placement of the lid catch. On prior models, this was placed in line with the lid handle. My new one is now perpendicular, which makes it a bit awkward to latch the lid on the side of the kettle when checking/basting/turning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fairly easy to control heat Works pretty good. Holds heat well and fairly easy to control the temp. Looks good. One problem so far. Installation of the ash catcher/legs. Had a LOT of trouble putting the legs onto the kettle portion with the ash catcher tabs in place. Had to remove the ash catcher tabs to install legs and put them back in place after leg install. It appears there is not enough room to put the legs on with the ash catcher with the tabs inserted. Still haven't got the tabs back in for a snug fit but will keep trying. All in all a very good kettle. This is my second one as my used one I bought has died after 25+ years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great grill with a great support team My old (non-Weber) grill bit the dust on a windy day when it fell over and the ash collector broke off, so I picked this one up as a replacement. Much easier to use, much better quality and it just seems like a great product. Wish I would have bought this one in the first place. After relocating across the country for work, I had lost some parts to the leg assembly (not the fault of the grill construction, just had gotten knocked around a bit in the moving truck). After contacting Weber, they sent out the replacement parts free of charge - talk about awesome customer support! Even if this grill does bite the dust one day, I'm sure I'll replace it with another Weber.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A simple charcoal grill...but so much more. I have had my eye on the Weber kettle as long as I can remember but the cost always left me apprehensive. I was recently surprised when I found a previous year model on clearance and the offer was too good to pass up. I owned the smaller version for years and while I have zero complaints overall it's not something you can cook for a crowd on. The 22" Original Kettle Premium has enough elbow room (more specifically wings, legs and thighs) to cook for family and friends. The biggest surprise out of the box was the heft and build quality of the components. I expected lightweight materials and flimsy legs, handles, etc.. What I got was a heavy duty, ruggedly built grill that will last a lifetime. There is a reason that Weber has the reputation it does. It's quality. The 22" size is perfect for offset cooking so cuts that require low and slow can get the perfect cook you are looking for. Toss in a chunk of wood every now and then and you essentially have a smoker. While my electric smoker has the ease of 'set it and forget it' it doesn't hold a candle to the authentic smoked character that the Weber provides. Charcoal adds flavor that you just don't get in other cooking methods. If you have been on the fence with a Weber Kettle of any size or model I would enthusiastically encourage you to do so. I never thought a simple charcoal grill would have so much impact on my day to day grilling and help me to become a better pit master in such a short time. Try it! You'll love it too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value, but could use some small improvements The product has a great set of features and after having the new removable ash pan design it really is hard to go back to anything else. The grate with the flip up sides is also a great addition. Given that it is the "premium" I really would have liked to see some kind of plastic tab on the top vent though. It is something that would have cost pennies to add and is a real safety issue as it will get super hot during a cook. The vent control also really needs to have some kind of indicator that tells you how far the vents are open or closed. I plan on fixing this at some point with grinding some symbols on it so you can actually see if they are open, closed, or half open.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some problems with the paint We have owned numerous grills over the years ..love the company, but was a bit disappointed this time when buying my new kettle. The bottom half had a large paint run, I called customer service and another one was sent out. They were more than helpful and pleasant . It also had a drool in the paint but I am going to live with it. I like to scrape down my grill after doing wings. Lots of powder spices makes a mess. Just hoping I don't catch the run in the paint and create a bare spot. Never saw this problem before. But all in all, will always go with Weber, in fact just got a new Spirit II this week!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quality product This is the 2nd weber I’ ever owned. My 18” is 17 years old this year and it’s in my camper now. Quality is superb. I’ve tried other brands years ago but always end up with rotted bottoms. Steal is thick, weatherproof and tight on closure which keeps cooking temp even. No hot spots or cold spots, just perfect ribs and briskets. I bought the 22” My lid had a weird dent when I bought it brand new. Called weber and kindly asked for paint. They didn’t even bother with the hassle, they just sent me a new replacement lid in the mail the next day. omg how nice. Thank you for continuing to make great products. I wish the rotisserie accesory wasn’t so expensive. I want it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Grill I’ve Ever Owned! I received my copper Original Kettle Premium as a Christmas gift from my father-in-law in 2016. I’ve always been a year round griller, but had traditionally been using gas for years. I must say, I’m extremely impressed with my Kettle! It has since replaced a (non-Weber) gas grill and a propane box smoker on its own. Steaks, burgers, brats, and chicken are so much better on the Weber! It’s been easier to control the heat, and the smokey flavor really ads to food. Plus, the 22” cooking surface offers tons of space to cook for plenty of people. And learning to smoke.... easily the best ribs and pork shoulders I’ve ever made! I’m pretty sure my neighbors get jealous when they smell the smoke from firing it up! Not only is operation and cooking so easy, but so is clean up. The one touch system makes clean up a breeze, and keeps the Kettle operating consistently. And given the quality of how it’s made, I’m sure this is going to be a gift I’ll have for the rest of my life. Couldn’t be happier with my Weber Kettle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I finally replaced my 18" Weber with this one. The added room is great. I really like the thermometer and the ash holder. The hinged grill makes it easier to add coal if needed. I'm still getting used to the larger size but so far the results have been good. I think I'll always have a Weber charcoal grill because of the great flavor and the fact that you can grill almost anything. At lower temps it's great for smoking and it gets plenty hot for steaks and pizza. The only negative thing is that the top vent doesn't seem to fit right and is loose so I can never really shut it off completely.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Faulty Manufacturing I was excited when I purchased a new premium Weber grill and opened the box and everything looked beautiful. It took me about an hour to put everything together and upon completion, I set the cooking grates inside and one of the grate brackets was like 2" off, which made the whole grate unstable. Unfortunately, I had to disassemble, return it to the store, and come to find out, they don't sell them anymore! So a lot of hassle and in the end, no grill. I am sure it was a fluke, but other than the bracket being off, the materials looked really nice. Maybe one day I'll be able to get another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weber is AMAZING!!! I had a older Weber kettle for many years but it finally had to be retired a few years ago. Since then I have used gas grills, offset smokers, drum smokers etc. I recently saw the Copper Kettle Premium and decided it was time to go back to the basics and I am SOOO happy that i did. I have 6 other outdoor cookers but haven't used a single one of them since i got my new kettle. I had a minor issue with the lid on the kettle when i got it but I contacted Weber and within 5 minutes the support staff resolved my issue well beyond my expectations. Weber has a loyal customer for life at this point..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Leaky and low but good This is my first ever Weber and I love it. The one-touch system makes using it a breeze. It’s the first charcoal grill I’ve ever cleaned every cook. I use it mostly as a smoker and, after some trial and error, I’m getting used to controlling the temp well enough to seldom have to raise the lid. But the lid is very leaky on mine. That may be because I bought a display. Also the legs seem oddly low, even for a short guy like me. Finally the Bottom vent is hard to see because it’s on the bottom of the grill. All that said though I love it. Having a great time and turning out great food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the titan of grilling. This grill lives up to the legend. It is easy to use and versatile beyond my imaginings. I can grill, sear, slow-smoke, direct cook, indirect cook. My Weber does it all. It is feature packed, with hinged food grate, the one touch cleaning system and a thermometer in the lid that, while not a deal breaker if it was not there, is handy. I grill without fear now. Secure in the knowledge that when I need a part or accessory, I can find them with ease at my local hardware stores... like all of them. Pick one, they have it. And charcoal is everywhere, anytime. Even at the all-night convenience store, if I were ever to find myself in dire need. Get one. Don't look back You will not regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Grill You Buy For Life What can I say, the legends are true. There maybe dozens of grills that look just like it (I've had many) but they are merely facades of the venerable Weber Kettle Grill. This thing holds up the elements like no other. I don't baby my tools, and this grill is no exception. A big part of the value is in the ceramic coating. Nothing gets through it so it holds up spectacular against regular use. I'm a function over form, brand name, etc. kinda guy, and this brand (or at least product) has proven themselves. Total worth the initial investment rather than cycling through bad products.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not made in USA like my original Two issues I had with my new 22" copper kettle.... The assembly was quite difficult as it takes a good bit of strength to get the legs in place and they feel cheaply made like they'll bend in half during installation. Comparing this new kettle to my original 18" kettle that was MADE IN THE USA, the new one falls short. My original kettle still works great and is heavier duty than the new improved larger kettle. Some people may not agree but I personally would be willing to pay a good bit more money for a USA produced model. I do like the ash catcher and thermostat on the new model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Size This is the second 22" I have purchased recently, I bought this one to use at the family beach house. The size allows it to be used for direct and indirect grilling. It has the capacity to feed a crowd and also produces excellent results for a smaller group as well. Using a chimney starter for the charcoal has been a key to producing consistently good results. All of the Weber products that I have owned are typically very durable and high quality. I have used many different types and brands of grills and the Weber products are typically designed and manufactured better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good grill With just two cookouts since purchasing the grill a couple of weeks ago, I’m overall happy with the product. I spent a few weeks looking at grills at Lowe’s and other retailers and two random customers that I did not know in the store told me at separate times that this grill was the best one I could buy. That’s what sold me on this particular product. The illustration-only instruction for assembly manual was hard to interpret in a few places and I ended up getting the wheels on the wrong side making it harder to move but not impossible. I also wish the charcoal could be raised and lowered as another way to help control temperature. Overall though, I’m happy with this product and look forward to lots more grilling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All around best grill you can buy I grew up with the Weber Kettle. My step dad cooked everything you could imagine on the Kettle. Roasts, turkeys, meatloaf, veggies, and of course even hotdogs & hamburgers. When the ash catcher on his Kettle was damaged he took one of the hubcaps of his VW beetle and used that. I’m on my 4th Kettle now and have enjoyed everything he taught me and have gone beyond that with the addition of the rotisserie. The one I recently purchased is for my daughter. She’s in college and will be renting a house where she can finally have a grill. Weber is truly a family heritage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Grill I have owned a few Weber kettles before but I didnt take very good care of them and they didnt last very long. I have since grown up and have learned alot...how to care for my equipment and the various ways and methods of using the kettle. I bought the 22" premium before I done any research and my only regret is that I didnt buy the Master Touch or a 26". I have used my kettle an average of 4 days per week if not more since learning how awesome the kettle is and how to use it so many different ways. I have purchased a cast iron grate, vortex and charcoal baskets recently and absolutely love all the accessories. I am sure that i will eventually add a Master Touch and probably a 26" to go along with the 22" premium i have now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Grill This is my 3rd Kettle grill! The 1st 2 were the basic kettle grill which were outstanding! I got great service from the 1st one, but the 2nd one was left to my daughter when we retired to another state. I decided to step up to the next level for number 3 because I wanted the temperature gauge in the cover, which helps me to control the heat. My previous grills had 2 handles but this only has 1. I find that moving the grill on a rough terrain is much easier with the 2nd handle. So, my only complaint on this model is that I wish it had that 2nd handle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Internal thermometer I bought this grill about two months ago and I use it every chance I get. If you’re not experienced using a charcoal grill have no fear, I think it’s easier to regulate than a gas grill! Assembly was much easier than I thought I did it with my lifelong best friend but after a few minutes I saw that it could have been done alone. The 22” is a perfect size to sit on my patio and still have space for family and friends to gather around. With this being the first grill I’ve ever purchased I’m sure I’ll be with Weber for the rest of my life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game Changer I received this grill as a Father’s Day gift and it’s the best one I’ve ever received. (Grill of Father’s Day gift!) I had always had my eye on a a Weber grill such as this but could never have imagined the absolute improvement over my former grill(s). This grill has made charcoal grilling a total pleasure. By combining it with the chimney starter, I now can go from pouring the charcoal to ready to cook in a little over 5 minutes! And cooking is now a breeze. The superior heat distribution allows for full use of the entire large cooking area. And the food cooks so much better with more consistent/hotter temps. All in all I love everything about this grill and wish I’d have made the switch years earlier. All grills are not created equal!
