If you want to impress a large group of up to 13 people, use the Weber Summit Charcoal GBS. This charcoal barbecue's dual-walled lid features insulated steel, which keeps the temperature inside the barbecue consistent. Thanks to this insulation, you don't need as much fuel. Place the charcoal rack in 1 of 2 positions. Use the highest position for grilling. To smoke or slowcook the meat, place the rack in the low position. Remove the middle of the rack to place GBS accessories in it, such as a wok. The lid thermometer shows the temperature in the indicated grill zones, such as the smoke zone.
Note: the Weber Summit Charcoal GBS has a gas ignition system to quickly light the barbecue. To use this system, you'll need a gas bottle. This is not included by default. Check the manual for more information and to see which gas bottle is suitable for this system.
