I have bought a few bbq's in the £40 range and they last max 1-2 years so when I saw a Weber for £54.99 it was a no brainer. Great construction and cant wait for my first bbq tomorrow.

PS I also added the Portable Chimney Starter for £12.74 which is a sure fire way to get your coals right first time with ease. Items arrived next day as described. Very happy.

Just had a bbq on my Weber :)What is the chimney starter?



Take a look at this link. I also watch the guys do it on You tube and seems very easy. Basically your put the coals in this with paper (or firelighters) at the bottom and put on the grid and let it burn for 30-40 mins. When the coals are grey/red pour them onto the grid and start cooking. I can't wait to try.

Yes great to have it confirmed. It seems very easy.

Chimney starter makes a coal BBQ superb. Essential and Webers are great.

All over that thanks

Yes - bigger is always better. However, I have a family of four and this 47cm apparently caters quite well to that. For bigger families and parties absolutely

Ordered thanks

Just used ours tonight, looking forward to doing a leg of lamb for Easter Sunday. Trust me, barbecued roast is so much nicer than when cooked in the oven.

BBQs are great and all that but after a certain point, I just think to myself 'theres s perfectly good oven inside that could be doing this'.

FYI,I have the 57" Weber and we waste so much coal when there are only 2 of us, so consider this when questioning best size, would say 47" OK for couples, 57" good for families or parties.

And on the topic of chimney starter, basically it replaces firelighters and ensures even heat in the coals, so you put paper underneath and when the top coals are hot, chuck them all in, works great but the b&q chimney starters also work the same but are £10 rather than £15 for the Weber...

Great price for the BBQ btw

heat the hottie.
nice find. yes 47 cm is nice for small BBQ. I found starting Chimney with a couple of squares of kitchen roll with cooking oil on, about a tablespoon works fab and no chemical starters needed. Credit to British BBQ site.

These are great on the weber but we dont deep fry them and they taste amazing, m.youtube.com/wat…pd0

Chimney starters are Brill. BnQ do one for a tenner. I got mine for a fiver from Tesco on last year's hukd bbq madness. Fair point from Harvey about size. Only used a 47 before and for "us" it's fine but a big family or party a bit tight. Got a new 57 in the loft... Waiting for the 47 to rust.

Personal opinion is only use lumpwood charcoal not the pressed stuff. burns better and lights quicker for me. Maybe not for as long but for me it's about the heat.

Thanks

thanks op, just what i needed

I only really want it to cook joints of meat on and whole chicken etc using the indirect cooking method. Would 47cm be OK then ?

Yup, I pretty much only cook whole chickens and legs of lamb indirectly on my 47 inch. I do split larger chickens to flatten them a bit. Found the best way to manage the heat is to leave the bottom vent fully open and only adjust the top one - half closed works for me. Will be doing a beef rib tomorrow.

Before I bought my Weber BBQ last year I couldn't decided between gas or charcoal - so glad I went with the latter. Combine this type of BBQ with the essential chimney starter and you have something 10 times better than gas. It's ready to cook on after 20 minutes and will keep going for hours. In fact I cooked a shoulder of pork for 9 hours last summer - perfect pulled pork that fed 20 people. This is a great deal for those not wanting to spend £175+ on a larger grill size. Now I wouldn't buy any other BBQ make other than Weber.

Beer can chicken on a Weber is a must. Open with can opener, pour out a little. Stick beer in chicken cavity, stand chicken upright on beer, pile coal one side oBBQ, stick chicken on the other. Cook for 1 hour 30. If your cooking regularly on a weber its essential to learn about indirect cooking, i.e low and slow, a proper meat thermometer us also pretty important.

I also saw the Asda branded masterpiece on sale for £20.

I got this last year from TKMax in there sale £15 best buy I have made BBQ related.

Good price. Be aware that the lid on the compact is lower than the standard kettles. You would struggle to do beercan chicken on this model, it's just about possible on my platinum with a medium chicken. Heat added.

Thanks op. Have ordered one. Quick question re chimney starter. Does it need to be weber? There's one in asda for £6. Would that be ok? Thanks

Won't be able to do that on the BBKettle 47cm. The lid is too low. Nee the full height of the 57cm to be able to put a chicken on its end.

Just had the Butterfly lamb in garlic, lemon, rosemary and anchovy marinade with fresh ciabatta......bloody fantastic.

I think you saw the price with the cover as still 54.99 on its own

Weber are by far and away the best BBQ's and the best they do at about this price point is the Go Anywhere just reintroduced to the UK (now it passes safety standards !).

I have the original 'dangerous' version and whilst it isn't the largest it'll cook for a family of four and I've roasted a whole chicken on one, infact I did a joint of beef last weekend for the best hot beef, gravy and onion sandwiches ever tasted.

Portable so it's great for camping or the beach and a sensible shape so it packs in the boot easily.
