The Weber Company was established in 1952, by George Stephen, a welder out in Chicago. It began when George was going to weld 2 float parts together and a thought flew into his mind which prompted the primary ever charcoal kettle grill.
George set up the grill together piece by piece and made the first model. With devotion and numerous showings, the rest was history. From that point, Weber began to make gas grills and grilling equipment.
Weber is presumably a standout amongst the most perceived brands in the grilling business.
The device is very sturdy and it comes with a warranty of 2 years.
It’s entirely up to you how intensely you are into grilling. The iGrill is suitable for everyone, from professionals to amateurs everyone can use and take advantage of the latest technology.
The thing we liked most about iGrill is that it is portable and you don’t have to use it with your grill every time, you can use the iGrill to track your food in a normal oven too. Isn’t that awesome.
All you have to do is put the meat on the grill and check its status with your phone. Well, that’s easy as everyone has their smart phones in their hands all the time. You don’t have to stand there all day long to check your food. Just sit, have a beer and use the iGrill app to its full extent.
