When you go out shopping for a bbq set it means only one thing, summer is finally here and the shorts and t-shirts can finally come out, because this years summer took so long to get here it means this years summer wont take long to leave, so you have to get your bbq's in as much as you can with the small time we have.
Every year we would go out and buy those little throw away bbq sets knowing that once they are used you can throw it away. After being invited to a family bbq party I saw they had a nice, but basic, BBQ set known as the Weber Compact BBQ, they were cooking for hours on this and the heat seamed to last forever, on our throw away version the heat doesn't even last the quarter of the time it does on the Weber Compact BBQ.
I had never heard of the brand name Weber but then again I don't know the names of many BBQ sets (unless they have other kinds of products in their line, But this one was a blank to me), I wanted a bbq that would last me a longer time than one year and I figured that if I spend that little bit more on a good bbq it would save me money in the long run.
When I was shopping round for this model I saw there were 2 different sizes, I would of picked up the smaller one but I figured that if we were entertaining guests it would be better to have the bigger one, and if I am just doing a bbq for the 2 of us then I can confine the coal to the center of the bbq and cook from there.
This 57 cm Weber Compact BBQ is a very smart sleek black charcoal bbq unit weighing at 9kg resting on a white support frame provided with 1 single shelf built into the frame just under the main body of the bbq unit, the entire thing rests on 3 legs and 2 of them being strong secure black crack proof wheels so it is easier to transport it from place to place, and when you are satisfied with the placement the third leg acts as a stopper so when it is placed on the ground the unit wont move.
The big black circular container on the top is a glass reinforced nylon measuring at 57 cm with a handle at the front that allows you to lift the top part up and reveals the inside where you put your charcoal and then cover it with a top grid where you place your food.
It is also fitted with a rust proof vent on the top made from aluminum that allows you to open or close the vent depending on how your cooking your food.
And also included with this strong, black, masculine Weber BBQ is a nice little cute charcoal measuring cup, for good measure (bad joke I know).
All this can be found in the manuals that is provided in the box along with a 5 year guarantee on rust proof, fire proof and cracking.
If you are thinking the smaller version would be better then that model has a 47 cm glass reinforced nylon.
You can get this from Amazon for £99.00
I paid around the same price and I personally think I made a good choice with this purchase. This seems to be like a Duracell battery just going and going and going and going.
I have had this BBQ for around 3 years now and it has lasted me so far, obviously we only take it out in the summer so it sits in our (not to decent) shed and hasn't rusted or been damaged in anyway.
In the manuals it does inform you that you can leave it out and it will be fine, so for piece of mind at least you know you can leave the bbq outside with no covering and it wont get damaged.
We have entertained many times with this bbq and it has come through for us every time.
Summary: even nature cant kill this BBQ
