I’ve been selling Weber Grills for almost 20 years. Until recently I owned a fairly large hardware and garden shop here in Seattle. I have seen grills come and go but have always been happy to recommend Weber. I knew if my customers bought a Weber Grill, they would be happy and maybe come back. These reviews are based on my experiences with Weber and their grills, my customers’ feedback and 20 years of experience. I hope they help you decide.

Weber – The company
Weber-Stephen Products Co., headquartered in Palatine, Ill., is the premier manufacturer of charcoal and gas grills, grilling accessories, and other outdoor room products. A family-owned business for more than 50 years, Weber has grown to be a leading seller of BBQ grills around the globe. Over fifty years ago, a backyard griller by the name of George Stephen, Sr. set out on a mission to create a grill that would keep his steaks cooking in the wind, and without the worry of a downpour. He got sick of the old way of open brazier grilling, and just refused to deal with unevenly cooked food with poor flavoring anymore. The legacy of Weber all began when Stephen created his first dome-shaped grill and lid at Weber Brothers Metal Works. He created the first classic original Weber kettle grill at Weber Brother Metal Works, where he was employed, thus the name of the grill.
Because people had never seen a grill like the one Stephen made, they were skeptical. But after tasting the flavor of the food that was cooked on it, they bought it, and they happily bought it. Weber’s reputation grew throughout the 1960s and 1970s, and it quickly became a nationally known and distributed brand. Weber introduced the rest of the country outside of the MidWest to covered grilling. In 1985, Weber introduced its first line of gas grills, and wowed people with it’s patented cooking system. The Genesis line of grills became known for it’s features of heat control and flare-up free cooking. People were able to cook everything they once used an over for on their Genesis grill.
As outdoor grilling became more popular, Weber released it Summit luxury line in 2002. Weber Summit grills were well made and included some very high-end features that catered to outdoor chefs. This line allowed made it simple for a griller to cook gourmet foods on the grill. Then in 2003, the Weber Q was introduced. The Weber Q was the first of its kind to allow true open flame grill cooking in a portable gas grill. They became so popular, in fact, that there are now eight different models of the Weber Q.
2007 was a big year for Weber. They launched fourteen new products that year, including a new line of gas grills, the Spirit. They added four models to the existing Summit line, and an additional eight to line of Genesis grills. All fourteen of these new grills are available in both propane and natural gas models.
