On January 18, 2023, Weber announced several new grills for the 2023 model year, including a new entry in the popular griddle category, a tweaked SmokeFire pellet grill, and a new line of electric grills.
Details are still sparse about the new Weber Griddle, but the company says it’s “full-sized” and features “a specially engineered 3-burner system” with an open cart design and two side tables. At first glance, it looks like a griddle with a shallow lid has been retrofitted to a Spirit gas grill

Non-stick cooking spray is my secret to prevent meat from sticking to the stainless steel cooking grates in my Weber gas grill and smoker. I know some people have this same issue with their stainless steel grates and can’t figure out how to resolve the problem—this video is for them!
Watch this video for some helpful tips on using non-stick cooking spray next time you grill or barbecue in the backyard!
I recently posted a video review on YouTube of Weber Grate Grill Cleaner. The bottle says it’s a spray cleaner for “all interior grill surfaces.” I used it to clean the cooking grate of my Weber smoker, but it can also be used to clean gas grill grates (which I have not tried).

I recently changed the regulator on my 2002 Weber Summit 450 propane gas grill. It finally gave up the ghost after 20 years of good service. How did I know it had gone bad? I wasn’t getting good gas flow to the burners, despite the burner tubes being clean inside and out and the valves all in good working order.
The good news is that it’s easy to get a new regulator, just call Weber at 800-446-1071 and they’ll tell you which part number you need for your grill. They’ll even be happy to sell you one!
This is NOT a photo of the actual grease fire I experienced recently, but it might as well be.
In early March 2022, I was vacationing with my extended family, staying in a rented house in a state park that included a Weber Genesis II E-325 gas grill. My brother volunteered to grill tri-tip roasts for our final dinner on Saturday night, so upon arrival Thursday I opened up the grill to inspect its condition.
What I found was a grill that was filthy dirty. There was a lot of junk below the cooking grates, but my focus was on the grates themselves. I ran the grill with all burners on high for 30 minutes (it belched lots of smoke), gave the grates a good scrub with a grill brush, then shut it down.
On Saturday night, I had the foresight to pull the grill away from the shingle-sided house before we started cooking. My brother pre-heated the grill and began cooking four large tri-tip roasts. About 10 minutes in, the dripping fat ignited the built-up stuff in the bottom of the grill and it broke into flames not unlike those shown in the photo above!

WEBER CRAFTED: An Improved Version Of Weber Gourmet BBQ System
In January 2018, I visited Disneyland Park in Anaheim and had dinner at the River Belle Terrace restaurant in Frontierland. The spareribs were horrible, but the house salad was delicious. It consisted of arugula, apple, dried cranberries, gorgonzola, candied pecans, and a side of apple vinaigrette.
When I recently decided to try my hand at grilled romaine lettuce, the obvious choice was to dress it like a Caesar salad…at least that’s what most recipes do. Caesar dressing, shaved parmesan cheese, crispy croutons, and you’re done.
