How do i get the max heat out of a charcoal Weber, re cover and bottom vents. Should they both be fully open? Cheers.


open the bottom vent all the way. after the grill starts close the top vent then put the lid just slightly off to the side. the top will hold the heat in and the grill will reach the max temp.

I have a Weber E-420. When the lid is closed and it rains, I find the dripping collection pan full of water and overflowing, resulting in a real mess of water and drippings all over the inside of the...


That's not unusual at all. Nor, is it a design flaw. The are are air vents all along the back of the grill head that allows rain to get in. Especially, blowing rain. The best solution is to either bring the grill into the garage when it's not in use OR if you don't have a garage, invest a few $$ in a good quality grill cover. Not some cheap $9.99 special. Either one, will solve the water problem, as well as keep the tree drippings and bird droppings off the grill.

Hi, the charcoal in my grill goes out after about 45 minutes


Somtimes using a charcoal grill can be tricky...are your charcoal briquetts fully lit and ashed over before yo start cooking...if so..the next trick is to get a good "draw" so the grill operates properly...you have to get air in the grill thru the botom vent and out te grill thru the lid vent at just the right rate to get a nice stream of smoke thru the lid vent without flaming up under the food.You have to make sure that you have the bottom vent partially opened to allow air to flow thru...remember air in thru the bottom and out thru the top....also try to use a good quality charcoal such as "Kingsford" because they burn longer than any I've ever used....It's a trial and error thing.....PS....don't try to relight by squirting starter fluid...This is very dangerous.... hope this was helpful..

How to assemble the weber one touch gold


See that the support leg without a wheel points into the wind and see that the air vents on the lid point in the same direction as the wind ie wind down. The bottom air vents to be open.
This works better for me than any other method, however I do agree that one must be patient when cooking anything

When cooking do you leave the lid holes open or closed

I now have a 3 burner weber gas grill and am thinking of buying a 2 burner weber gas grill - how do you use indirect cooking on the 2 burner grill - will there be one burner that is turned off under the...


Well, I personally, wouldn't want to go from a 3-burner to a 2-burner because I think Weber designed the 3-burner grill to perfection, and as you know, all you have to do is turn off the middle burner.

At any rate, indirect is harder with the two-burner because of the placement of the burners. You can try to put some 1" thick ceramic bricks directly on the flavorizer bars in the middle, or if you are using a rotisserie, put a pan under your meat.

Cooking a whole chicken / lamb roast


Good Evening, I love cooking with Charcoal/Wood. The bottom vents will adjust the temp, closed the coals burn slower and cooler. The top vents also control the temp, however more importantly the flavor by keeping the smoke in or out. With a roast you want low heat so I would close the bottom vents 1/2 way or so and since i like a smokey flavor of Hickory would keep the top vents closed. The key to a good Barbeque none the less is slow cooking. It also takes fine tuning, wind, breezes all effect how fast/hot the coals burn. Don't be afraid to add more coals as needed as well. Good Luck and have a great cookout. Thanks for using FixYa. Jeff

My grill does not exceed 300 degrees. The rear burner is barely lit, it sputters with a blue flame. The Front and middle burners run well, blue flame no yellow. I changed the regulator with one from home...


Bypass valve need reset. All grills made after 1996 have this valve.
  • Close the LP tank valve
  • Turn all burner control knobs to the OFF position
  • Open the grill lid
  • Turn the LP tank valve until it is completely open
  • Wait 90 seconds
  • Turn the front burner to the HI/Start position
  • Press the igniter until the burner is lit.
  • Turn remaining burners to High
  • Close the lid.
  • The grill should preheat to 500-550 degrees in 10-15 minutes
I called Weber and a rep walk me through it.

I bet your grill gets no hotter than about 300 with the lid closed?

The tank has a built in safety feature. If a burner is left on when you open the valve on the tank, or turned on too soon immediately after opening the valve on the tank, the flow will be restricted. You need to turn all burners off, close the tank valve, disconnect the tank, reconnect the tank, open the tank valve, waqit a few seconds, open the burner valve and light. You'll get unrestricted flow and much better heat.
