Weber 741001 Original Kettle Review

Let’s have a depth look at the Weber kettle Original grill

This is the classic 22-inch Weber grill with a very classic looking. First thing you notice about the master touch is that the handle on side has two little hooks on it. You can put your cooking tools there and it is very handy. On the spinning wheel, you’ve got a nice piece of plastic that protects from burning your hand. Now you can just use your fingers because it doesn’t get hot. Speaking of protecting from the heat, we’ve got this shield underneath the handle that shields on all the new Weber kettles.

This barbecue is a grill and smoker all in one. While it’s not the best smoker, it’s inexpensive enough to get your foot in the door to see if you like it before investing in a dedicated smoker. These grills are very versatile. You can grill over direct heat indirect heat and also do some smoking as the kettle is large enough to have the coals on one side and the food on the other side.

Assembly the Weber Original Kettle

The assembly is easy and wont take more than 20 minutes. It’s a very simple grill. Have a tray in case of any ash or charcoal that falls out of the inside of the grill and then got the kettle itself. Then the lid which has a little hook  that you use to hang off the side of the grill. It could use a better hook or mount for the cover like the portable 18 inch one. The grill itself has one great no special features or anything. It’s just a standard grill one rack and then the charcoal rack the big difference between this 18 inch and these 18 or 22 inch cable grills is the distance between the charcoal and the grilling wrap can’t get as much on this 18 inch portable one.

In the 18 inch the distance between the charcoal rack and then the grill is very close. So it’s harder to get indirect heat. Not the case with this 22-Inch larger grill. You can get direct heat indirect heat a lot easier. And then on the bottom you just have the air vent controlled by a little lever. This model it doesn’t come with the thermometer if you get the more expensive one it has a little bit few more features and it comes with thermometer.  At the top of the lid there is a air vent so you control the air coming in.

And that’s pretty much it, is a very simple and classic grill well made so overall, this girl gets a big thumbs up for me.
