For me, the surprising part is what a great aid they are for direct cooking. By placing them next to each other, you can intensify the heat source and actually raise (as a result of stacking up the briquettes in these) the level of heat source closer to the grill. A great addition when you have something you want to sear at the start of the grilling process.
Last night I indirectly cooked 4 half chickens. Used the baskets again but didn't smoke the birds. After 60 minutes the birds were crisp and cooked to a perfect 180 degrees. I added my favorite bbq sauce on the chicken and moved the half chickens over the baskets to just crisp up the bottoms. My family loved the meal and I was very impressed again with how much easier it is to cook with theses baskets.
I would recommend these to my entire fellow Weber charcoal grill friends. A small purchase with big results! Weber is the very best!
These don't hold very much charcoal, and when full, the charcoal sits just under the cooking grates. If you want to sear before or after you indirect cook, then you have to really be there to watch it as the coals are so very close.
A pair of bricks will section off the charcoal better, giving you more room (and you can adjust the spacing from the wall) to drop coals, without them piling up so high.
I have a Weber kettle grill (charcoal) with a gas ignition system, and all I have to do is place the desired amount of charcoal in each basket (or in one if that's all I'm using that day), position the baskets over the gas igniter outlet in the center of the grill, and wait a few minutes (about 5). By then the coals are pretty well lit and I can kill the gas, and in a few minutes more, they're ashy and ready to use. Then it's just a matter of repositioning them where I want them for cooking, whether in the center for direct heat or on the sides for indirect heat, and well I wish it were more complicated because I like making people read long reviews, but that's it lol. It's that simple!
If you cook over charcoal, you'll love these, in fact you'll probably conclude that they're worth twice as much for the convenience they bring to the cooking process. I hope some of you find my review helpful in making a more informed decision as you consider your buying options! Peace :-)
1. Make one SLIGHTLY smaller so they nest in each other better
2. Not have sharp edges.
