Weber’s New Hybrid Charcoal Grill

Weber Hybrid Charcoal Grill

Weber-Stephen Products LLC, the world’s leading manufacturer of outdoor gas and charcoal grills and grilling accessories, announces a new charcoal grill that combines the form and functions of the classic Weber kettle grill with the company’s beloved Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker smoker to create a completely new grill option from Weber.

The new Summit® charcoal grill and Summit® charcoal grilling center (MSRP:  $1,699 and $2,299 respectively) will be available at select specialty retailers beginning April 6, 2016. Consumers can visit www.weber.com to find a dealer in their area.

“We are so excited to bring these new grills to our customers—providing true convection cooking that only Weber’s trademarked round shape can provide,” said Kim Lefko, Chief Marketing Officer, Weber-Stephen Products LLC. “Charcoal grill owners interested in smoking, and gas grill owners who long for the taste of charcoal now have the best of both worlds available to them.”

Designed to provide ultimate control and hold steady temperatures for more than 10 hours of cooking, the Weber Summit charcoal grill will incorporate many unique features including multi-zone heat options, a hinged diffuser plate, a two-position fuel grate, an insulated lid and bowl for less charcoal consumption and better heat retention, and a slow cook/smoke bowl damper set-up that allows for three bottom vent positions.

In addition, the Weber Summit charcoal grills come with a Gourmet BBQ System cooking grate—a hinged cooking grate that features a removable center piece designed to fit a variety of Weber accessories, including a wok, griddle, and a poultry roaster.

The Weber Summit charcoal grill features 452 square-inches of cooking space, Snap-Jet gas ignition for easy lighting, a Rapidfire lid damper and built-in thermometer, a bottom wire rack for additional storage and the One-Touch cleaning system for easy ash removal. The Weber Summit charcoal grilling center will also include a stainless steel tabletop, wire basket and tool hook, along with a CharBin storage container.

Food TV Celeb Alton Brown & PopSci on Tour

Food Network Superstar and TASTE HALL OF FAME‘s Alton Brown has a new tour, and part of it is based on food and science.

Alton Brown’s first food hack (he prefers the term “hacking” over “inventing”) took place during season one of his Food Network show Good Eats, when he made a fish smoker out of a cardboard box. Naturally, since then he can count the staff of Popular Science Magazine a part of his large and loyal fan base.

He invited PopSci to his secret workshop, where they made carbonated chocolate ice cream in 10 seconds, used lights to cook a pizza in three minutes, and answered a few questions about his favorite hacks, affirming that everyone’s home has a lab (the kitchen!), and why it’s a good idea to take apart the lawnmower.

Mega Bake
If you’ve ever played with an EZ-Bake Oven, you’re familiar with the concept of cooking with the heat produced by a light. Alton’s Mega Bake takes the concept to a whole new level, using 54 one-thousand-watt lights to get the oven to over 600 degrees.

Brown used it on the Edible Inevitable tour to make pizzas in under three minutes, and showed us how he does it.
