Bring out dad’s inner grillmeister. Since 1951 Weber has been pioneering the backyard barbecue. Anyone who has owned a Weber will tell you that it’s hard to beat for versatility, durability and great charcoal flavor. This Weber One-Touch Kettle sports a classic design, a large cooking surface (enough for a dozen burgers or shish-kabobs or six large steaks), a porcelain-coated steel bowl and lid, and high quality hardware for years of use. What’s more, Weber’s patented One-Touch cleaning system sifts ash out of the kettle and into the grill’s removable catch pan so cleanup takes only a few seconds. From bratwurst to grilled veggies or even a whole turkey, you can’t go wrong with this Weber. Don’t forget a chimney starter, barbecue tool set and premium Weber cover to go along with dad’s new grill.
