If you're in the market to purchase a new charcoal grill this year, this article will give you all the information that you need to make a wise choice.

Over the last few months,The Top 5 Charcoal Grills Articles I've done a lot of research on many different types of grills.  Many of them are  good, lots of them aren't.  But what I found is that there is one brand of barbecue grills, both charcoal and gas, that stands far above the rest.  Weber, a name that everybody knows and respects.  Why?  Because their products have stood the test of time, decade after decade.I can remember as a kid, the Fourth of July cookouts at my Grandparents' house with a huge hunk of beef on the Weber grill.  The sound of the rotisserie will stay with me always.  My Weber Performer Grill is the very same basic grill my Grandfather used many years ago.  It just shows you the quality of their designs holds true still today.  That is why I highly recommend Weber products.I've listed five of the top selling Weber Grills that I recommend:The Smokey Joe GrillThe Smokey Joe Grill is a great grill for apartment dwellers who have limited storage space.  This table-top model features a 14 inch grate for 147 square inches of cooking capacity.  It's great to take on your next picnic, too.  You can count on the quality and dependability that you've come to expect from Weber products.The One-Touch Gold Series 18.5" GrillThe One-Touch Gold Series 18.5 inch Grill is a great starter grill that will last you many years.  It has the classic Weber Kettle Grill design.  The great feature of the Gold Series is the convenient Ash Catcher.  It makes it very easy when it comes time to empty the spent ashes.  It boasts a cooking capacity of 240 square inches, which is very ample for those who have limited space.The One-Touch Gold Series 22.5" GrillThe second in the One-Touch Gold Series, the 22.5" offers the very same amenities as the 18.5" with an increased capacity to 363 square inches.  Again, the Weber quality is always present.  A great grill for the price.The One-Touch Gold Series 26.75" GrillThe One-Touch Gold Series 26.75" Grill is the next step in charcoal grills.  Its' massive 26.75 inch grate provides 508 square inches of cooking capacity.  Plenty of space for any size brisket you have.  This model features a built-in thermometer, as well as the convenient Gold Series Ash Catcher.  Many other features abound.  This grill is for the serious barbecuer.  The Weber Performer Charcoal GrillThis is the ultimate in charcoal grilling.  The Weber Performer Charcoal Grill features the classic Weber kettle grill design built into a cart format.  The unique Touch-N-Go Gas Ignition System lights your charcoal with a small LP gas burner.  No more lighter fluid to mess with!  It also features the convenient Gold Series Ash Catcher as well as a dual purpose thermometer and weather protected charcoal storage container.  I've personally use the Performer Grill for the last 6 years and I absolutely love it.  I wouldn't do without it.Well, there you have it... I sincerely hope that these recommendations will help you in your charcoal grilling quests.  Good luck and Good Grillin'.
