In 1951 George Stephen was so fed up with the effects of wind and ashes on his barbecuing that he designed a bowl-like barbecue cooker with a rounded lid deemed the kettle grill. Today, Weber is one of the most renowned manufacturers and retailers of quality charcoal grills (from $80-$550), gas grills (from $100-$6,000), portable grills (from $25-$150) and various grill accessories. Weber gas grills have grilling convenience in mind with features such as heat resistant work surfaces, angled grills, swing-away side tables, grease trays, etc. One of Weber's most avid sellers is the Weber Q (from $120 to $250 online) - a portable, hybrid gas grill that's extremely mobile. The Weber Q is available in an even smaller Baby Q model for approximately $50 to $100.
