Summary: We were excited for this grill to arrive after reading all of the great reviews and deciding to switch back to a charcoal grill. Now we're simply suprised at all the great reviews. CONS: - Flimsy / cheap-feeling stand with one leg that easily pops out if you accidently drag it a bit - The lid doesn't fit even before you use it, and after you use it it warps / gets worse - Cheap low-quality parts - Non-adjustable grill height.

Summary: I got this grill from Amazon and I got it in a day. It was no problem putting together and once I did I used it right away. The ash catcher is nice. Not to mention, being able to completely trap in the smoke is another bonus. After I was done cooking, it was very easy to clean up since I keep it inside. I just moved the cooking grate, and picked up the grill grate. I have some pretty good grill gloves. Then I just dumped the charcoal in bin and then the ash catcher.
Summary: Before I get to the review I'd like to mention something I've seen debated about this grill way too much in other reviews. Made in the USA. Is it really so hard to figure this one out? I don't get it. Just look at the box "Made in USA." Look at the grill itself "Made in USA." Look at the manual that comes with it "Made in USA." On to the review.
Summary: Weber is one of the best grills, I used mine 6 times in 4 months and it still brand new. Set-up took me 15 minuts. I got also the grills to separate the charcoal for indirect cooking method and this is great for slow cooking of spare ribs. The charcoal chimney starter is also a great product that take the fuss out of lighting charcoal. Its also healthier as no fluid is necessary for lighting.
Summary: The Weber 22.5 inch grill is truly the best for those of us who enjoy charcoal grilling. The One-Touch Gold model has the convenient ash catcher which is a big plus if you grill a lot. The venting system allows for a slow to quick burn, thereby controlling the fire's temperature. If you are new to charcoal grilling, this is the grill to learn on, experiment, have fun and enjoy good tasting food that can only come from charcoal and wood.
Summary: A great grill! Assembles easily, great weber quality. I love the ash catcher/sweeper attachment, so I'm glad I went with the Gold over the silver. There's not much more I can say. It does exactly what it's supposed to do, and weber's customer service is TOP NOTCH!
