We proudly introduce our new and long-awaited top-of-the-line barbecue, the Summit® Charcoal. After 60 years of innovation (and a lot of steak), the Weber® Summit® Charcoal barbecue has finally seen the light of day – ready to shine in your garden.
Air-insulated double-walled lid & bowl
The double wall construction enables the barbecue to encapsulate warm air, which then acts as an insulator. In addition, both the lid and bowl include an inner liner. With this, less fuel is needed as the barbecue holds the temperature. The lid liner is made of aluminium to make the lid lighter and to optimise heat reflection. Furthermore the lid is hinged and has a spring, which makes it extremely easy to open and close the lid.
Rapidfire Lid Damper
When fully open the lid damper provides a chimney starter effect – making it possible to start the barbecue quickly. The lid damper works like a traditional Weber® lid vent, but because of the hinged damper design, the airflow can be boosted, so that temperature is increased quickly and it gives you ultimate temperature control.
Smoke / Low-And-Slow vent setting
New smoke setting on the One-Touch® cleaning system makes it easy to get the right airflow when smoking. Place the handle at the smoke icon – then the vents will allow the exact, minimal airflow that is needed to keep the barbecue in the smoke zone. Together with the diffuser plate this function turns the barbecue into a smoker with the optimal airflow.
Two-position fuel grate
The two-position fuel grate provides flexibility whether you are smoking, cooking with indirect heat or searing over direct heat.
The fuel grate can be set in two positions:
1. For Smoking with the Low-and-Slow Vent setting.
2. For direct and indirect heat.
Hinged diffuser plate
The diffuser plate is comprised of 2 layers of stainless steel riveted together. These layers of steel enclose an air gap, which helps regulate the temperature within the cooking chamber. The diffuser plate helps maintain consistent low temperatures for slow cooking, and the durable air-insulated stainless steel construction will also stand-up to high temperatures.
