1989. Yes, you read that right, 1989. People often ask me about my obsession with Weber Grills. After spending thousands on supposedly premium stainless steel gas grills from the big box stores only to have them rust away in the matter of a couple of years I’ve discovered the perfect grill costs way less and will be around for years.
I cook just about every day on my charcoal Weber grills, at work and at home and they just plain work, you can get replacement parts cheap and I can set my vents for high convection type heat or low and slow, reliably.
These grills are everything right about American manufacturing and distribution.
