Weber Barbecues - Compact And Neat BBQ Experience

Nov 30, 2007
The Weber barbecues mainly consist of the kettle type barbecues. They kettle types are the ones with a lid and wheels. It can be moved out of a shed or to any other place of convenience. They are outstanding for roasting the foodstuff but can also be used for slow cooking or grilling purposes.

The principle of working of the kettle barbecues is same as that of old wood fired ovens. At the beginning maximum amount of heat is produced and radiated. Later the temperature will drop slowly. As a result the food cooked will be crisp and gold in the outer layer but tender with flavor packed inside.

By using a hand full of wood chips the real flavor of wood barbecues can be achieved. The flavor of the food stuff can be varied by the use of different woods like apple, cherry, maple, chickory etc.

The dome shape of the kettle and exhaust vent positioned on the dome helps to replicate the flavor produced by wood smoking. This will be very compact to use. But it will be a problem for the people to use in high rise apartments. These kettles are small and can be easily fit in the balcony. But the smoke of the cooked stuff will raise high through the vent and may cause irritation to neighbours who live on the floors above.

Most of the time most people reserve the kettle barbecues for the special occasions alone. The kettle cannot be ignited instantly and cannot be used immediately. It should be lit and a time of 30 - 40 minutes have to be let for the fuel to get heated thoroughly and then another 2 hours roasting time will be needed.

Many people are hesitant to use kettle barbecues frequently thoughtful of the cost of charcoal and fire starters. This worry can be eliminated by reusing the fuels which are not used up and also by constructing a charcoal chimney.

Whether one uses the kettle barbecues frequently or occasionally the quality of the selected product is very important. One can choose the kettle made of vitreous enamel. This will with stand the heat from the source in its near proximity than any other coating. The brand selected should be well known and a reliable one.

A good brand kettle such as Weber will be worthy and will last long for one or two decades. The price of the kettle may range from 200 to 400 US dollars. As the additional features like one-touch cleaning system etc is included the price of the product also increases. The size of the kettle is also to be considered. Very big ones will only be suitable for caterers. If big ones used for small amount will result in extra expenditure on fuel.

Weber barbecues has got many advantages as they are moveable, easy storage, good value, adaptable, tenderness in food stuff, and easy maintenance but also have the limitations of heat up time and fuel costs.
