Since it’s Memorial Day weekend, the grilling season is just beginning for some. For me, it’s a year-round sport!
While I prefer to use gas for convenience, charcoal is still the preferred method to cook by grillmasters greater than I. If you want to be a grill purists and use charcoal, the Weber Ranch Charcoal Kettle is the grill for you. This isn’t your dad’s $50 charcoal grill, but if you are serious about grilling the $1k price tag won’t deter you from purchasing this beauty. The ginormous grill measures a whopping three feet across and with it’s high-domed lid, I’ve been told you can smoke an entire hog snout to tail! Mmmmm…. pork.
The Ranch is the Weber kettle on steroids. Do you need to feed a really big crowd? Originally designed for caterers and country club chefs, the Ranch Kettle is also perfect for company picnics, church gatherings, and family reunions. Grill multiple turkeys, roasts, chickens, or up to 19 Cornish hens on the Ranch Kettle. Rugged, yet easy to use, this 37-1/2-inch-diameter grill features a patented tuck-away lid that slides conveniently into its holder. Two weather-resistant thermoplastic handles remain cool to the touch when you move the lid. A hinged cooking grate gives you easy access to coals and a removable ash catcher assures easy cleanup. With the same solid construction of all Weber grills, the Ranch Kettle has locking casters that allow for easy movement and the porcelain-enameled coating to prevent rust.
