Practical Caravan's expert and experienced professionals review the Weber Smokey Joe and discover that it is a high quality, easy to use portable barbecue


It’s pricey, but any barbecue devotee will tell you that Weber gas-fired units set the standard. The Smokey Joe Original has excellent heat distribution, and is an absolute dream to use.

The build quality is very high indeed, a weather proof handle and a triple plated cooking grate just two of the useful features.


If money, storage and weight were no object this excellent barbecue by Weber would be perfect.



  • You won’t need an extra table to stand it on
  • Build quality is very high


  • It’s pricey
  • The design isn’t the most portable
