As some of you know i have a bit of a thing for weber kettles. Old, new, it doesn't matter. These days I prefer the master touch version as it has a higher grill height than the old 22"s.

But recently they re-issued the Glen Blue in a 26", aka The Imperial, in limited quantities. The first batch of 100 sold out very fast and they released another run of them, and mine is on the way.


Thank goodness it's not historically accurate, I prefer the lid bale, ash sweeps and bucket attachment, and higher grill height.

Troy from the weber kettle club did a video on it.


here's an image from one of the guys on the site.



To a weber kettle guy, the 26" Glen Blue Imperial is the holy grail of kettles.

That’s an insanely good looking grill.
Any idea how many units have been produced for this second run?

Any chance you’ll be sending it off to be relic’d?
i'm not sure how many on this second run, but i put in my order Friday and it looks like they are still accepting orders.

yep, they are still available at weber.com.

I got weak. I’ve got one on the way.
when you get it, if there are any chips at all weber will send out a replacement bowl, lid or both. you just send them a pic of the shipping damage. the second round is shipping with an extra lip to the box to prevent this. a couple guys at the forum had issues and are cooking on the chipped ones, with the new ones kept in their boxes.

I ran a Weber kettle for 15 years, but $400?!? That’s crazy.
I learned how to play guitar on a 1962 Stratocaster that my cousin bought in the '70s for probably $20 to $50 knowing him. it's crazy with fender wants for those reissues now.

So is $400 a lot of money? It's authentic Weber lol.

Great color. I'm shocked at how much bigger the 26 is over the 22.

4" in diameter though. So an extra 2" in every direction from the center. That adds quite a bit more area.

Area of the 22 is 11 squared times pi so 121 x 3.14159 = 380.13 square inches

Area of the 26 is 13 squared times pi so 169 x 3.14159 = 530.93 square inches. That's a lot more steaks!

Hank Hill sold me years ago. I use propane and propane accessories. But when I did use charcoal, it was a Weber like that. It was nice
Propane!! No doubt.:h5:
