I thought it was really convenient that he could add soaked smoking wood chips into his Weber grill while the charcoal was hot via the hinged sections of the grate. At the time I didn’t have that convenience.
Eventually I decided to purchase what I consider the best charcoal grill that is out there in the market – the Weber 22” Charcoal Kettle Grill. One of the main reasons I did so was because once I had this grill I could buy all of the accessories that go with this size grill. The Weber Hinged Cooking Grate is one of those accessories! Another safe accessory I always use with my Weber grills is my charcoal grill mat.
