WEBER® SUMMIT® CHARCOAL

Summit® by name and summit by nature, Weber®'s top-of-the-range charcoal barbecue does it all and is exclusive to Weber® World Stores.

Whether it be grilling, roasting or baking at extremely high temperatures, or smoking over a long period of time at a very low temperature this barbecue has been designed to allow you to do the lot!

With a thick aluminium lid liner acting as a seal and a double-wall construction around the body of the kettle, the Summit® Charcoal® traps warm air which then acts as an insulator allowing greater control over the cooking temperature as well as needing less fuel to cook with.

In addition, by using aluminium to line the lid and with the aid of a sturdy spring-assisted hinge the lid remains light and easy to open and close.

Unlike the rest of the Weber® charcoal barbecue lids, rather than the traditional vent the Summit® Charcoal has a unique multi-position Rapidfire lid damper which, when fully open, provides a chimney starter effect making it possible to start the barbecue quickly, particularly with the added inclusion of snap-jet gas ignition. Also, having a hinge means the damper can be fully opened to boost the flow of air to rapidly raise the internal temperature of the BBQ.

Another new feature on the Summit® Charcoal® is the 'Smoke' setting incorporated into the One-Touch® cleaning system. By simply rotating the control lever to the 'Smoke' icon the bottom vents are then significantly reduced to allow minimal airflow through the unit, thus reducing the temperature and holding it in the 'smoke zone' (as indicated in the specially designed lid thermometer). Together with the supplied diffuser plate this function transforms the barbecue into a smoker with optimal airflow.

Even the versatile diffuser plate plays many roles depending on the type of cooking being done. Comprising of two layers of hinged stainless steel the plate can be used to enclose an air gap to aid low and slow smoking as well as stand up to higher temperatures during grilling.

As you would expect from a barbecue offering so much, the Summit® Charcoal® comes with a 61cm stainless steel hinged Gourmet BBQ System® grate with a removable 30cm centrepiece to allow you to combine all of the GBS® accessories including sear grate, wok, pizza stone and griddle (all sold separately) to further enhance your cooking possibilities.

Besides the versatility that the 61cm Gourmet BBQ System® grate offers, it also has an impressive 2922cm² total cooking area which is more than sufficient for a family or group of friends to enjoy a hassle-free garden party or all-year round alfresco get-together.

Other great features on the Summit® Charcoal® include a two position fuel grate for more flexibility when cooking, Weber® stainless steel One-Touch® Cleaning System with removable ash catcher, stainless steel tool holders and a locking front wheel for convenience. Included with the barbecue are a drip tray to collect the dripping fats and juices, Char-Baskets and a charcoal cup to make it easier to measure the recommended quantity of fuel.

As you would expect from a quality brand like Weber® there are a huge range of accessories designed to assist and take your outdoor cooking to the next level from cook books, tools, warming racks, covers right through to flavoured wood chips, so click here to see the full range of Weber® accessories we have to offer.

Not cheap, but boy this can cook, in a repeatable way! Enormous rack, keeps the heat for hours, easy to clean. Doesn't fit through a doorway lol

Excellent bbq although expensive! Even higher than usual Weber quality. Easy to control for low and slow and indirect cooking. Weber instructions for indirect cooking make a simple process more painstaking so I ignored them. I just filled the charcoal baskets and controled the temperature with the vents. I have a Big Green Egg, Weber smokers, and Weber gas and charcoal grills. Looks like I’ll be selling my BGE! The Charcoal Summit does everything but rotisserie.

This grill is unbelievable the quality is second to none the performance is even better I smoked for 5.5hrs on it and it had hours left in it. Best grill for the money and best grill when put up against it’s competitors.

After seriously researching the komodo style BBQ / cookers on the market (and I mean seriously...) I decided that I'd buy the Weber Summit Charcoal due to it's great reviews and superb Weber reputation. It arrived on a small pallet, and did take me a couple of hours to install it (the legs went on 3 times the wrong way!!) but when it was all put together, this little Sputnik of a machine oozed BBQ sex appeal. First cook was pizzas (kept the kids happy) and since then I've baked my own burger buns, slow cooked ribs for 8 hours and flipped just about every kind of meat on it. Great thing is - not a single bit of buyers remorse. It's an awful lot of money, but if you don't want 15 different cookers on your "yard" like our friends over the pond seem to take delight in, it really is the bees knees. Really happy I pushed the button on it, and I can't wait to explore more great recipes over the coming summer months.
