Barbecuing is not only popular in the United States but also here in the Philippines. We make all kinds of excuses just to celebrate and grill meat and fish. Beach outings are never complete without it. We embrace the culture of grilling and adapt to new technology to make our cooking better. The variety of Weber grills are here to help us with our cookout.
The birth of the world’s first kettle grill was the first stepping stone that started Weber’s journey to success. Weber grill’s humble beginnings can be traced back to 1952 in USA, the land where the tradition of barbecuing flourishes. At first, only a few heads have turned for the new invention; but over time, the Weber Grill have crossed borders and conquered the world. The rest is history. George Stephen was a young family man living in Palatine, Illinois. During the day, George works in a marine buoy factory, Weber Bros. Metal Works, but what he really loves to do was grilling at home. Nothing more makes him tick than finding new and exciting ways to share and celebrate barbecue experiences for his family and friends. Having mastered all the ways, tips and tricks with the ordinary grill, along with the unhelpful irrepressible flare-ups, George was left with no choice. He knew that the only answer is to have his own invention. While at work, George split up one of the ocean buoys into two and thus, the first kettle grill was born. George Stephen’s unfamiliar invention of barbecuing with a lid led the masses to surprise and amusement. However, as soon as they tasted the food from the new grill, they were extremely satisfied. George Stephen had just given the world his gift, a new-to-the-world innovation which forever transformed how barbecuing was made.

About Weber – Much More Than A Grill

It all began with a passionate barbecue enthusiast named George Stephen, who invented the world’s first kettle grill in 1952 – a grill that ended up changing the barbecue culture throughout the world. He did not do it in order to enrapture the whole world – he simply wanted to find a way to barbecue better steak for his family and friends. And he succeeded! That is now over 60 years ago.
“We are not metal benders – we are in the entertainment business”. That brief sentence sums up Weber. For us, a grill is much more than a grill – it is a focal point for unforgettable experiences. This was the philosophy George Stephen founded Weber on… it is the philosophy that has revolutionized the world of barbecuing… and it is the philosophy that still permeates Weber today.
