We all know that Weber kettle grills are some of the best charcoal grills around. The domed lid design was invented by Weber, and is the industry standard for great grilling.
There are several models of the Weber kettle charcoal grill available. All have great temperature control provided by the upper and lower venting system. Basic black is the standard color of these grills, and if you try one, you'll be pleasantly surprised with the quality.

Temperature is controlled by adjusting the vents on top and at the bottom. A large removable ash catcher makes cleanup nice and easy, too. Locking casters keep this beauty securely in position. A nice touch is the tool holder that's built right onto the grill. Great for hanging those utensils.
