I went with this 22.5 inch model because it has enough space on the grill to cook for 5-6 people at once and has a foldable steel grate for pouring in more charcoal. I also like how the top lid has a rotating oxygen vent and a thermometer that seems to me to be fairly accurate. The cooking top and urn (bowl) itself are fairly thick steel and have a tough porcelain enamel finish that is fire baked on in the factor. Which is nice, since they do not scratch easily or look cheap after only a week. The grill also has Weber's One Touch cleaning system, which is really just an ash catching pot below and a moving lever at the bottom of the urn which moves ash into vents so that it falls into the pot. While it may be a bit gimmicky, I like it and it makes cleaning up the day after an easier chore.
The few negatives about this model would be fit and execution. When assembling the tripod wheeled base, the cheap metal legs do not fit into the base of the urn very well. Also, the ash catching kettle does not fit into the underside retainer ring very well. This entire grill is made in China and I suspect what is needed is a few re-measurements for better fit and higher tolerance. One or two skilled technicians on the assembly line could probably correct some of these simple flaws. They do not harm the main cooking purpose of the griller, but they do leave a cheap feeling in your mouth when you first assemble it.
Other than that, and I really like this Weber so far. My first few weekend grills have gone well and I will update this review in a few months once I more experience with this Gold One Touch.
Then, I really started to pay attention to quality of materials used, and fit/finish on the grill. After assembling the grill and now having used it over a dozen times in the past two weeks (I love to grill), I can honestly say that this perhaps the most versatile, well made, and stupidly simplistic grill ever made. The whole thing took me about 20 minutes to put together which just entails screwing the handles onto the lid and base, installing the thermometer, and assembling the legs. if any part was tricky, it was the legs but even then, if you follow the instructions (which consist of just pictures surprisingly enough), it isn't all that difficult.
So far, I've made burgers, steaks, chickens (whole and breasts) and a turkey breast. Everything has been delicious with excellent flavor using plain ole Kingsford charcoal briquettes and a chimney starter. The Weber chimney starter is also a very useful item and well worth the $14 if for nothing else, it saves you that much alone in lighter fluid plus none of the nasty smell or taste.
What can I say, it's so simple yet so brilliant and produces excellent food. Well worth the investment I'd say.
