Weber Go Anywhere Charcoal Grill Review

Even though they are more efficient and cleaner than charcoal grills, gas grills aren’t for everyone. Some BBQ fans crave the taste of meat cooked over real charcoal. The thing is, most portable grills are gas powered.

Weber hopes that charcoal fans in need of a small, movable grill will buy their new Go-Anywhere Grill. The first thing that you’ll notice about the Go-Anywhere is that it looks a lot like classic full sized Weber grills. It’s jet black, it has a fully removable lid and it’s equipped with adjustable vents.

Of course, there are also a few key features that differentiate this mini grill from its larger cousin. The Go-Anywhere is rectangular, not egg shaped. It’s also much smaller and it has retractable legs.

Let’s take a closer look and find out more about what the Go-Anywhere grill has to offer.


Snap-out legs — Heavy duty, plated steel legs snap out so that you can set up just about anywhere.

Weber’s famous adjustable dampers — The dampers allow you to adjust the airflow and temperature inside the grill case.

160 square inches of grill space — That’s enough room to cook four or five burgers at once. For a small portable grill like this, that’s more than enough cooking space.

Lid lock — The snap-out legs can be pushed up, locking the lid in place

Sturdy steel body — The body is made of high quality steel and it’s coated with jet black porcelain.

Our Rating: 4.3/5

The Good

With this small but effective little charcoal grill, you can enjoy the classic Weber charcoal grill look and feel while on the go.

The Bad

This travel grill’s small size is a disadvantage when it comes to laying down charcoal. There just isn’t much room to put it, and adding on more when the flames start to die down is somewhat tricky.

Best Suited For

Weber fans and BBQers who love the smoky taste that real charcoal adds to grilled meat.

Not So Good For

Anyone who might be put off by this grill’s somewhat tight spaces. You have to have good finger dexterity to add in more charcoal.

The Verdict

This grill is great for charcoal fans in search of a portable option. The only downside is that it takes a little extra effort to get the charcoal situated.
