For years the simple to assemble, simple to use, much loved, much used, much abused compact but perfectly formed Weber Smokey Joe has charcoal grilled pretty much anywhere that it's possible to take a barbecue, all the way from beaches to Alps and all points in between with it's simple but effective charcoal grilling system. The Weber Jumbo Joe is the big brother of the Weber Smokey Joe Original taking all it's features and adding additional grilling space, a Tuck-Away lid holder that doubles as a simple to use lid lock, to keep the lid locked on tight in transit, plus a removable aluminium ash catcher that also acts as a heatshield to protect surfaces that the Jumbo Joe may be stood on.
The Weber Smokey Jumbo Joe, with it's readily portable 47cm diameter, has a triple coated cooking grate with an area of 1735cm, three quarters of the size of the Smokey Joe's larger again, which will easily feed a family of four to six, and is just perfect for putting in the boot of a car or a camper van to take to festivals or wherever the adventure takes you. Just close all the vents put the lid on, lock it down with the useful lid lock and, when it has cooled down, so the Weber Jumbo Joe can be happily moved with no mess.
The fire and rust resistant lid and bowl are made from steel with a porcelain-enamel coating both inside and out making them weather proof enough to withstand all the elements can throw at them plus tough and robust enough to handle all the abuse of a long lifetime of grilling adventures. When the lid is taken off the grill simply place it in the Tuck-Away lid holder which not only saves having to look for a surface to put a hot barbecue lid down on, but also enables the lid to be used as a wind shield when lighting the coals.
The lid's ability to withstand the elements is carried through into it's weatherproof handle which incorporates a protective heat shield and a rust proof aluminium lid vent.
The lid vent makes it a simple operation to regulate the airflow into the Weber Jumbo Joe to ensure that there is always the proper airflow for memorable barbecuing results each time the barbecue is used which is further enhanced on the Jumbo Joe by a rust proof aluminium bowl vent for even better control of the airflow through the kettle.
The Weber Smokey Jumbo Joe includes a free charcoal measuring cup which is a useful tool to have as it removes all the trial and error from trying to guess how much much coals or briquettes were used when the barbecue worked so well last time but why not so well this time as you will consistently be able to know exactly how much charcoal or briquettes are needed to control the temperature and time needed to grill to make sure you constantly get the right results every time.
Weber have put much time and thought into creating a huge range of well designed and supremely functional accessories that can be used with the to further enhance the grilling experience when using the Weber Smokey Jumbo Joe or to make it even easier to live with. These include an extensive range of other Weber accessories such as barbecue mitts, utensils, kebabs and skewers, thermometers, burger presses and a whole range of flavoured wood chips to add that extra dimension of flavour plus much more all of which are designed with Weber's typical blend of style and functionality.
