Over het bedrijf

Over 65 years ago, George Stephen cut a metal buoy in half, and then added a grate & three legs, thus creating the iconic kettle barbecue. Ever since then we’ve been making grills of the highest quality.

However, we don’t just manufacture barbecues. We like to say, “we’re not metal benders, we’re in the entertainment business.” And that’s because we’re driven by the same passion that inspired George back in 1952, to improve the whole barbecue experience.

Our comprehensive range of high-quality grills & innovative accessories make lighting, cleaning & cooking on your barbecue effortless. We’re also committed to ensuring that Weber owners get the most out of their barbecues. We teach how to barbecue the Weber Way through our range of cookbooks, recipes, apps and even hands-on barbecue courses at the Weber Grill Academy.

The Grill Academy the largest cookery school programme in the world, offering hands-on barbecue courses that teach people how to get the most out of their grill and become a barbecue hero.

It is comprised of two key initiatives:

  • Grill Academy Original (GAO) – barbecue courses that take place at one of our cookery school partners. Each recipe is prepared from scratch and participants sit down together to feast on the four-course meal they have created.
  • Weber BBQ Courses (WBC) – barbecue courses that take place at our retailers. A Weber trained chef will visit the retailer and conduct a course outside the store.
