about this item

For the simple pleasures of grilling over live fire and sharing great char-grilled food with family and friends, this extra-large Weber kettle is the grill of choice. A rust-resistant adjustable damper controls airflow into the grill to lower or raise cooking temperatures. The grill is equipped with a plated-steel cooking grate that's conveniently hinged for easy addition of charcoal even during grilling. Heavy-gauge porcelain enameled lid and bowl ensure years of trouble-free grilling, while maintenance and ash removal are hassle-free. With the stainless steel One-Touch™ cleaning system you just slide a handle to sweep ashes into an enclosed aluminum ash catcher. Additional conveniences include a lid handle with a heat shield and spring clip/push pin leg assembly. Always cook with the lid down, but when you need to remove it, simply use the hook inside the lid to hang it off the side of the bowl. Available in Black only.10-year limited warranty.

Purchased for grilling but does double duty as a smoker. Amazed at how easy it is to select and hold a temperature. The space on the 26.75” grill is an added advantage. Very happy with this grill.see moreof the reviewer's review

I purchased a 26" Weber Kettle to give me more space and cooking area when cooking for large groups. I use a Weber 22" Kettle when cooking for my wife and I. To date I have owned six different Weber products. My only concern was the lack of quality control on the 26" kettle, it had many defects i...see moreof the reviewer's review

I currently own 5 22” kettles and a Smokey Joe d adding this 26” to my collection was the best thing I ever did. Amazed at the cooking space as well as the ability to burn the same amount of fuel my 22 would take. Great grill for anyone.see moreof the reviewer's review

Got my 26er and I don’t regret it one bit!! It’s big enough to cook ribs, butts, brisket and a boat load of chicken!! I wish they made more accessories like the iron grates and the pizza oven though, but I love my 26, it’s awesome!!see moreof the reviewer's review

The 26” Kettle is the single best grill I have ever purchased, I absolutely love its versatility...from small cooks for the two of us to the larger cooks I’ve done for over ten people... Smoking meat on the 26er has been a dream as well, the best so far was a 22lb beef brisket...a huge cut of meat ...see moreof the reviewer's review
