The words Weber and barbeque go hand in hand, and have done so for many years now. It is rare to go anywhere within the U.S. and not find these words associated with each other in some form or another. Weber makes all kinds of products related to barbeque and after conducting some research and asking other barbeque fanatics about their experience with Weber products we have compiled a list of the Top Must Have Weber products.
The Weber Kettle is the most commonly use barbeque grill around and it comes in several different models and sizes from 18 inch to 26 inch. For many people, the Weber Kettle was their first grill and over the years Weber has gain some loyal devout customers. The different models of the kettle are:
Weber Smokey Mountain
The Weber Smokey Mountain is bar far the most versatile of the Weber grills in our opinion, you can smoke meats as well as cook direct. This model is also very popular by competition cooks on the barbeque circuit like Harry Soo, of Slap Your Daddy BBQ . Sometimes called a “bullet smoker” or a “Water Smoker” depending on the area of the country you’re in, keep in mind people are referring to smokers styled like the Weber Smokey Mountain (WSM). It comes in three sizes, 14, 18, and 22 inch with the 18 being the most popular among cooks.
Weber Rapidfire Chimney Starter
Those serious about barbeque are said to avoid charcoal lighter fluid! Think for a moment of any time you had some Q that tasted like lighter fluid. Now, think of eliminating your barbeque from that equation. Well you can with the Weber Rapidfire Chimney Starter. Weber’s chimney starter makes starting your charcoal a snap. It also cuts down the amount of time it takes for the coals to get ready. Just load up the extra-large canister full of coals, light up a fire starter cube (see below) or crinkled up newspaper, and set the canister over the flame. In a matter of minutes the coals will be red-hot. Who ever thought it could be so easy? I’ve been using a chimney starter for years and paid $25 for mine but I’ve found them for $14.99.
Weber’s Char Baskets allow you, the cook, to have better control over temperature and the hot areas in your grill in cases where you’re setting up 2 zone cooking, direct heat and indirect heat cooking areas on a Weber Kettle. This gives you the option of not having charcoal just dumped in the bottom of your grill and fighting to control your temps and cook time. See the Weber Char-Basket.
Weber Firestarter Cubes
These wonderful cubes work hand in hand with the Rapidfire Chimney Starter. Usually chimney starters require you to use crumpled up newspaper in the bottom of them to get your coals going. Well, these cubes are non-toxic and will light even when wet helping you to get your coals lit faster so you can get started cooking sooner. I’ve seen these as high as $24.95 in some places but you can get a box of 24 for less than $3.50.
