Customer Reviews

Easy to install and work great.
Claudia J Hyde
The rails hold the charcoals back from the drip pan so you can recover drippings for gravy without charcoal and woodchips in it.
Jon R. Gilmore
Excellent rails to hold charcoal on both sides of the grill while indirect cooking.

I know I'll probably take the usual "not-helpful" pounding for disagreeing with the majority of reviewers here, and I hate it when that happens, because the only reason I take the time to write a review in the first place is to be helpful. But I'm just looking for the best way possible to do something I really enjoy, and so are you, and this, as it turns out, isn't it in my opinion. I did find a much better option though, and why knock something if you don't have a better option, right? Maybe some of you will find it helpful!

But first, the knocking >:-[

I own these and I've used these, and they're horribly awkward. I've seen them referred to as "essential" by exhuberant reviewers, but these rails are as optional as optional accessories get! It's hard to get them to to stay in place while you're loading charcoal behind them, they're wobbly after your charcoal is behind them, and once they're in place and cooking has begun, you won't be able to reposition your heat if it becomes necessary to do so. They're so wobbly that even a slight accidental bump to your grill will have these rails laying on their sides and your charcoal will be laying all over the place. That's not a theory, that's an experience! After my first few attempts at using them, I just went back to stacking coals on the sides of my grill by hand for indirect cooking and found that easier and more reliable than the rails, so I think 2 stars is generous.

Contrary to what other reviewers have said, there is no appreciable difference in internal temperature over time between these and the briquet holders using the same amounts of charcoal, as measured by the internal temperature thermometer on my Weber.

I've used the aluminum charcoal trays for a long
while now and really love them, but for a higher
temp indirect heat, these rails are awesome. Have
used them a lot in the last few weeks and can just
not find anything bad to say about them.

I'm surprised, but they hold the charcoal where you
want it (sides or center) and does not interfere with
airflow nor ash drop. Great product and very nice fit
into the charcoal grill, well built and not at all flimsy.

The Weber 7402 Charcoal Rails work as advertized. They are easy to install and remove yet fit firm and do not come out unintended. Simply engineered by the same people that make the charcoal grate so it fits perfectly. There are no installation instructions or diagram so for those that are dense as I was for about 5 minutes you hook the outer most cross rail and wedge the end opposite the hooks between the grates. This is for an 18 ½ inch grill so the 22 ½ inch may not be the same. As far as the practicality of the use on an 18 ½ inch grill the best you can do is one medium sized rack of ribs or a very well trimmed brisket. Flank steak and skirt steak fit perfect. Whole fish one medium fits fine as well.

These work great on our 22.5 inch Weber kettle. You can use them for indirect heat or put them together for high direct heat in the middle. What can I say, another good product from Weber.

Friends, if you use a "Weber Smokey Joe", this product greatly simplifies and enhances indirect cooking. Takes s lot of the mess out of slow cooking turkeys, roasts and whatnot. Might want to take pretty good care of em because they quickly rust. Seems like Weber quit making them for a year or two.

I've been using these rails for years on various Webers that I've owned and it wouldn't be the same without them.
With these rails, combined with the hinged cooking grate, I've been able to cook a large turkey to perfection. The rails hold the charcoals back from the drip pan so you can recover drippings for gravy without charcoal and woodchips in it.
For any application where you need to cook indirectly you need these charcoal rails.

I've used these many times and they've more than proved their worth. Essential for indirect cooking and they're going strong after at least 30 uses.

I have used these rails or a similar version for years now,and although like all the racks made my Weber they rust like mad, I wouldn't be caught without them. No more flare-ups and charred meat! These are especially useful if you have the charcoal rotisserie, temperatures stay up around 500 degrees with one charcoal chimney full of coals evenly divided between these two rails. By the time the temp drops down to around 350 or so, your chicken or pork loin is perfectly done and crisp. Charcoal racks that do the same work don't seem to keep the temps where I want them as well as these rails. I will replace mine as soon as they wear out.
