Born from a buoy.
In 1952 George Stephen Sr. was working at Weber Brothers Metal Works in Chicago, Illinois, manufacturing marine buoys when he came up with an idea for a better grill. His invention: a dome-shaped grill with a lid to protect food from the elements, while sealing in that only-from-the-grill barbecue flavor.
George Stephen cut a buoy in half, added some air vents and legs and, in the process, invented the grill that would spark a backyard revolution.
You probably know that Weber® barbecues are not just barbecues. These days Webers can cook almost anything. And they need to. People still want to barbecue but they also want to sear, roast, bake, smoke and fry. To get the best results for each of these cooking methods we have had to create a complete range of accessories. That’s why we make roasting trivets, pizza systems, breakfast plates, meat thermometers and a host of other accessories to help with the cooking.
