Weber® Original Kettle Premium 22" Expert Review
To me, the Weber Kettle is the quintessential backyard grill. It’s simple, affordable, and cooks great. The Weber Original Kettle Premium expands on that experience by adding some convenient features.
Reasons to Buy
Here’s some free advice: Don’t mess with success when you can just build upon it. I love the Original Weber Kettle, and in terms of cooking, the Weber Premium Kettle is essentially the exact same grill, which means it performs every bit as well as the kettle grill Americans have been cooking on for generations. While that may not sound particularly exciting, there is a certain comfort and confidence that comes along with reliability and predictability.
While this is basically the same great grill your grandfather mastered chicken thighs on, it has a few convenient twists that he probably would have wanted in his day. The Premium Kettle is all about making your kettle experience a little easier. Since I tend to do a lot of indirect cooking, and try to keep my temperatures tight, the lid-mounted thermometer is essential. As are the hinged cooking grates, which allow me to add charcoal or wood mid-cook without removing food and grates. But that’s just me. Most people love the Premium because of the Ash Catcher, which makes cleanup much easier.
As with the Original Kettle, my favorite thing about the Weber Premium Kettle is it’s affordability. Even with an increased price for the added features, this is still a very affordable grill that will fall in most people’s budget. Considering that a majority of Weber Kettle owners have their grills for years, if not decades, it ends up being a pretty great value.
Reasons to Keep Shopping
While the I love the added features of the Premium, if you’re looking to save money, the Weber Original Kettle 22 is a stripped down version the same grill. If you want a bit more luxury and features in your kettle, I'd suggest looking at the Napoleon Rodeo or Napoleon Rodeo Professional, which include cast iron grates and a heat diffuser. If you need more cooking space than is offered by the Premium 22”, the Weber Original Kettle Premium 26 has a larger grill grate plus a few more attractive features, like Char-Baskets for easy indirect cooking setup.
