Gas, Charcoal or Electric BBQ

There is a Weber for everybody!

It is over 60 years since the first Weber barbecue saw the light of day. At that time the kettle barbecue and its lid were a barbecue revolution, and it continues to enchant people around the world to this day.

Here in the UK we are barbecuing more than ever before. Lots of people would still like to barbecue even more, but it can be difficult to fit this into our daily routine for one reason or another, The original kettle barbecue has therefore been joined today by a wide variety of barbecues, providing many options to choose between.

The most important thing is to find the barbecue which is perfect for you and your family-you simply need to work out what you need. Perhaps it is your first barbecue and you want something which can teach you the basics, or you may only barbecue a few times a year but would like to do so more often-without consuming a lot of your time.

The Weber family has four ranges, ensuring there is a Weber to suit everybody-whatever your situation. You simply need to work out which range best matches you, your family and your daily routine.
