6 Reasons For for Choosing the Weber Smokey Joe Premium

Lid

The Weber Smokey Joe Premium has a lid (as do the Nesco GRG-1000, the Sunbeam GR8210 and the Tefal GC241D40), but the UCO GR1 does not have this feature. More ...

Some barbecues come with a lid which can be closed over the top of grill whilst it is cooking.

A lid on a BBQ is extremely helpful for stopping the spread of smoke, as well as keeping the heat contained, meaning the food cooks quicker, and there's less chance of an accident. It's absolutely essential for trapping the smoke for hot-smoking food as well.

Cool-Touch Handle

The Weber Smokey Joe Premium features cool-touch handle (as does the Tefal GC241D40), but the Nesco GRG-1000, the Sunbeam GR8210 and the UCO GR1 do not feature this benefit. More ...

A barbecue with cool touch handles is specially designed to be always cool to the touch, even when the main body of the BBQ is extremely hot.

Cool touch handles mean that the BBQ is far easier to move around and handle, and there is less of a chance of you accidentally burning yourself on hot metal. Which hurts. A lot.
