Very happy to be back with Weber
No more pellet nightmares! Back to Weber charcoal cooking! So glad! This thing is so big, compared to my old 22". Plenty of room for indirect smoking. Had to learn how little coal it takes to keep temp right for smoking. Very little. One of the provided trays is all you need to smoke for a few hours. Add a few coals here and there, through the handy grate opening. Smoked chicken quarters, ribs, salmon, pork tenderloin so far. Very happy with results. Finally just some good ol' charcoal grilled burgers last night. Yum!

Hands down, best charcoal grill on the market
I remember when I first saw this online, almost 10 years ago now if not more. I've had Weber charcoal grills all my life, but when I found the larger grill I instantly fell in love. This thing does not disappoint, an absolute steal for what you are paying for it. The built in thermometer allows you to cook to perfection without having to needlessly lift the lid to check the goods, letting all that hot air escape. Everything else works and functions perfectly just as in the other models, but the added space you are paying for allows for even bigger cookouts. Beer-can chicken with the lid on, no joke. Massive planked fish. I definitely worried about the durability of this product when I first invested in it, but years later it shows no signs of slowing down, and has developed into a well-seasoned cooking machine. The few parts that might breakdown are widely available through the homesite, I believe I had the wheels replaced a few years ago, free of charge. A serious investment for serious grillers, but worth every penny, and affordable enough that anyone can learn to become a seasoned Grill Master in no time!

Xtra space for meat!
Typically our house ends up as the entertaining house for our friends and family. For many years with the 22", i was longing for a little more grilling space. The 26" definately covers what i need for those big gatherings.

First time Weber owner.
I bought this 26" grill about a month ago. Could not be happier with my decision. I did a couple of mods on it. Added a Lava lock lid seal, added a thermometer by the top vent that way I can more or less gauge the temp on the hot and colder side of the grill, bought a Vortex ring and a slow and sear. Overall great quality, easy to put together and great tasting food.

Plan for the Future
Having a 22" charcoal grill for years I was able to cook some delicious food on it. From burgers, fish, steaks and with an extension ring, rotisserie chicken. The problem was when my grown kids came over there wasn't quite enough room to cook easily using the hot and cool zone method, which I prefer. Looking at the Ranch charcoal grill it was toooo big and then I found the 26" . Purchased it a couple months ago and glad I did. It fits my needs. The only issue is finding an extension ring for doing rotisserie cooks. For the first timer, don't invest in the 22". The grill will last for years if cared for. Plan for the future and buy the 26" charcoal grill.

Weber 26
Weber has the best customer service and their products last so when looking for another charcoal grill i had no issues choosing this company. As far as the Weber 26 its perfect size, its kind of the unsung hero that i dont think people think of. I was worried about it being to large but now that i have it not a worry at all. For smaller cooks i utilize the baskets that come with it and when done can close vents and still have charcoal left but its perfectly sized for indirect grilling pr smoking.

My new beast
I love my new Weber 26 inch. The thing is a beast. The critique I have is that Weber should consider putting a thermometer on the. Side where the vent is on the cover. It would help when smoking. Bought one myself and mounted it. Looks great.

When Will My Item Arrive?

Once shipped, items usually arrive within 3–5 business days. If your item or order is large, it may ship via one of our third-party freight carriers, which deliver from semi trucks with lift gates. Freight delivery is much more complicated than standard parcel shipping — you must schedule a drop-off time, be present for the delivery, and move items from the curb to your residence, among other differences. Sound stressful? If you prepare in advance with our guide to freight delivery, it doesn’t have to be.

We strongly encourage reading the entire freight delivery guide, but here’s a quick snapshot of what you need to be ready for when you order a large package:

  • Your freight carrier will call you to schedule a delivery window of about 4–8 hours
  • You’re required to be physically present at the specified delivery location during the scheduled window
  • Freight shipments are carried in semi trucks, which have lift gates to assist with unloading
  • Freight deliveries are dropped off at the curb and no further — not up the driveway, not the porch, not the garage, and most definitely not the backyard — so it’s on you to transport packages to their intended location
  • For an easier time hauling items to your home or backyard, arrange for at least 2 helpers to be on standby during your delivery window
  • You must sign for the shipment to indicate that you’ve accepted the delivery

Again, we recommend reading our entire breakdown of freight delivery so you can become familiar with the process. Trust us when we say that getting caught off guard with the strict requirements of freight delivery can lead to a whole lot of headaches.

No Restocking Fee

Most companies charge a restocking fee. We just don't do business that way.

Message to our customers: Like all retailers and manufacturers, we’re currently experiencing well-publicized supply-chain issues and steel shortages that have caused some orders to be delayed. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences arising from this situation, and we assure you we’re making every effort to solve these problems with our vendors and logistical partners.

So, why are some orders being affected? Major ports around the world are still operating at reduced capacity because of COVID-19 restrictions — on average, container boats sit at port for about 3 weeks before being unloaded. Combine these shipping inefficiencies with a scarcity of natural resources, and virtually every industry has been crippled to some degree. Yet we acknowledge that it’s our duty to meet these challenges head-on and work toward solutions so you can enjoy more time outdoors with the people you love. We appreciate your patience as we strive to smooth out our supply chain, and we thank you for choosing us for your grilling and outdoor living needs.
