Original Kettle Charcoal Grill 18" is rated out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jason W from Perfect size for camp!! I picked this bbq up for additional room (have been using a weber go anywhere charcoal), and let me tell you....it’s perfect for that. I have a family of 4, and occasionally the kids bring friends on weekend camp trips. We have not run out of room. This bbq does run a tad bit hotter than my 22” weber. Figured so, with using the same amount of fuel for a lesser area. I did a few upgrades. Ordered a ash can and did away with the catch plate. Safer for camp, and better air flow control. I also upgraded the pull handle with the newer style that allows you to hang your cooking utincils. If you’re on the edge of buying this bbq, don’t hesitate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from 18" Original Kettle grill, NOW Upgraded I really like our 18" Weber, kettle grill. Now that the kids have moved out, its mostly the wife and I using the grill. So when it is just the 2 of us, the smaller grill fits the need very well. Don't get me wrong, it still has enough room for alot more food! But, I have the advantage of not using as much charcoal to preheat and maintain temperatures while grilling or smoking. I have made some minor upgrades, to make life easier. First, I ordered an installed the Weber Ash Can. Which replaces the standard ash pan. This is worth the minor investment, and it snapped into place in less than 5 minutes. Second, I installed a Weber lid thermometer and bezel ring. This works great for both grilling and smoking, as the temperature range goes from 150 to 600 degrees! I placed the meter near the lid vent, in order to get a more accurate temperature of the meat side (cooler side) of the grill, when smoking. These 2 modifications alone, bring it up to par with the more expensive models, for less than $100.00. So, after all the work, I'd still like to do a few more modifications. Like a silicon grip for the lid's air vent, and maybe an additional side handle. But for the money, it is a great little set up, even if you do not do any modifications!

Rated 5 out of 5 by amd1708 from It just keeps on grilling and grilling My dad had a Weber kettle grill that my mother kept for at least 10 years after he died, until she moved to an apartment. After going through a number of gas grills ourselves for a few years, we finally bought this 18in charcoal grill, basing it on the premise that fewer moving parts is more when it comes to grills. I can't even say how old it is, but it's at least 20+ years old. We've replaced the inner grill (grate?) a few times over the years, because that's what takes a beating. It will last forever!
