Weber Summit Charcoal Grill

If you know anything about backyard barbecuing, you know that charcoal is superior to gas in terms of flavor, but gas is much simpler and more convenient to operate than charcoal. But, what if you could have the best of both worlds and more? If you pick up Weber’s Summit Charcoal Grill, you can.

While it’s not going to do much in regards to easing the cleanup, this charcoal grill features a push-button ignition system that makes lighting it as simple as, well, pushing a button. It also does double duty as both a barbecue and a smoker, thanks to the inclusion of a two-position charcoal grate and has an air-insulated design that allows for quick response to temperature dial changes. And, thanks to Weber’s wide array of Gourmet BBQ System cookware, this grill has the added potential to act as a wok, pizza oven, griddle, and poultry roaster. Nice work, Weber. The Summit retails for $1,500.
