Weber Grills Born In The Heartland And As American As Apple Pie
Weber grills are almost synonymous with the term backyard BBQ. Today Weber Grills have become one of America’s most popular and trusted brands and Weber grills are exported worldwide. Weber makes gas and charcoal grills along with one of the best electric grills the Q 140.
Weber is headquartered in Palatine, Ill. They are the world’s leading manufacturer of barbecue grills, smokers and grilling accessories and one of the largest exporters. But it wasn’t always that way.
The first Weber grill was made in 1952. George Stephen an employee of the Weber Brothers Metal Works was frustrated with cooking over an open brazier. So he decided to build a better grilling system, one that would allow for more even cooking, seal in flavor and offer protection from wind and rain.
Stephen created the first Weber grill by cutting a buoy in half and putting a lid on it. And so the classic shape of the original Weber kettle grill was born. His invention was laughed at first but once people got a taste they stopped laughing and started buying them. Weber grills quickly gained popularity outside the Midwest and today are still probably the best known name in outdoor grilling in America.
