The Weber® Kettle – The Australian Barbecue Icon

Classic Fireplaces and BBQs sell all special model webers,
with extra features you don't see elsewhere.

 weber_kettle_roasterOver 50 years ago, the first Weber® kettle was built.

It changed Australian attitudes towards barbecuing forever.
For the first time, Weber's indirect cooking system allowed ordinary people to roast whole joints of meat with delicious barbecue flavour.
Even now the incredible flavour of these barbecue roasts still distinguishes the Weber kettle from all the other barbecues sold in this country. As a result, the Weber kettle is the only barbecue in Australia to ever attain icon status.
Everyone agrees, it's synonymous with spectacular food and memorable entertaining.

The secret is in the indirect cooking. How does it work? Looking at the picture you can see that coals are positioned out to the sides while the food is placed on the upper grill between the two fires. The fat from the turkey will drop into the disposable drip tray below. This means that you get much healthier, fat-free cooking without those horrible fat-fires.

Weber call this 'indirect cooking' because the food is cooked using natural convection without any fire directly underneath it. Apart from the unforgettable flavour, the great advantage of using this method of cooking is that you don't have to turn the meat. You're free to do whatever you want while the Weber kettle cooks the most extraordinary roast, every time.

This icon can also barbecue with unmatchable flavour. Some people think it's hard to justify lighting their Weber kettle just to cook steaks. The real Weber enthusiasts know, however, that what the Weber kettle does for roasts it can also do for steaks and kebabs. Steaks, for example, are cooked directly over real coals (not lava or ceramic rock) with the lid covering them. Natural convection cooking makes them the juiciest steaks you'll ever enjoy. The smoke from the coals creates a barbecue flavour that is unmatchable. You only have to taste one steak cooked inside a Weber kettle to know that steaks cooked on ordinary barbecues are just that … ordinary.

An Explanation of the Weber Charcoal Range

Weber's new range of charcoal barbecues incorporates the Compact Kettle, the One-Touch Silver & Gold Kettle Ranges, the Performer, two Specialty Kettles and Portable Charcoal barbecues.

The Compact is the most basic kettle made by Weber. It requires more assembly than the One-Touch line and cannot be converted to gas using Weber's gas kit. The One-Touch line is divided into the Silver and Gold ranges, with the One-Touch Gold having the most innovative features. The One-Touch kettles are available in a 57cm model designed for family cooking. All 57cm One-Touch kettles incorporate Weber's ingenious Rapidfire system.

The Performer incorporates a gas ignition system which makes lighting quicker and easier.

Weber makes two specialty kettles: the Ranch, which is the largest barbecue kettle in the world and is especially designed for caterers and clubs, and the Smokey Mountain Cooker, which simply creates the best smoke food you've ever tasted.
