Excerpt: Just bought the grill. Love it...except the next day when I watered the grass, water accumulated in the ash pan at the bottom of the grill! I cannot believe Weber engineers did not anticipate such a simple problem! I am a bit disappointed!
Pros: Durable, Easy To Clean, Portable
Cons: Needs A Small Drain Hole, Standing Water In Ash Pan
Summary: built well, easy to use, easy to clean. I drilled a hole in the cover and installed a grill temp gauge. no place to put items down (no shelf). Can order an add-on or order one of the weber grills that have one included. I light the charcoal in a charcoal chimney starter instead of using charcoal lighter fluid. Start the charcoal away from the grill so burnt paper isn't wafting around in the grill. highly recommended and been using it for years.
Pros: Easy to clean, Easy To Use, Quality Construction
Summary: The beauty of this grill is the kettle design which maximizes heat retention and allows the grill to act like an oven with the top on. I've cooked whole chickens, cabbage, bread, and pizza using this method.
