What users think:

The Weber Smokey Joe Premium Charcoal Grill has received positive feedback from users for its compact design and affordable price. Owners appreciate the grill's portability and find it easy to use, resulting in satisfying cooking results. Its compact size makes it ideal for small outdoor spaces or for those who enjoy grilling on the go. Users find it convenient to transport and store, making it a popular choice for camping trips, picnics, and tailgating.

While the majority of users were satisfied with the Smokey Joe Premium Charcoal Grill, some reported issues with the paint on the lid. Several owners noticed that the paint began to chip or peel after a few uses, which was disappointing. Additionally, some users found the legs to be bulky and inconvenient, as they took up more space during storage and transport. There have also been comments about overall build quality not being as good as previous Weber models.

Despite these concerns, the compact size, affordability, and overall ease of use of the Weber Smokey Joe Premium Charcoal Grill make it a popular choice among users.

Direct quotes from owners:

I have a few webers, this one is as good a quality as the rest. Only quibble is it could do with an air vent lower down under the coals to draw air up when the lid is on instead of the 2 on the sides.


We used the product for our staycation holidays and for future camping trips. The barbeque is portable, however I would advise removing the legs when travelling as it takes up less room in the car. You will need to pack a screwdriver. We have only started using it, but I did find you need to let the charcoal burn for at least 40minutes before using it. Happy with the product overall.


Love this little Weber Bbq looks good but really disappointed that the paint has already chipped by the handle after 4 uses

Price: £92.69
