In 1952 George Stephen Sr. was working at Weber Brothers Metal Works in Chicago, Illinois, manufacturing marine buoys when he came up with an idea for a better grill. By cutting a buoy in half, keeping the top but adding air vents and legs, Stephen invented a grill that would spark a backyard revolution. The dome-shaped grill’s lid protected food from the elements, while sealing in that only-from-the-grill barbecue flavor.
Weber grills and accessories have moved beyond the buoy to include charcoal, electric and gas grills, smokers and even portable options of best-selling favorites. Whether you prefer the flavor of charcoal or the convenience of gas, there's a Weber for you. Find a tasty mouth-watering recipe.
