Cooking grates – They have a serious 3/8-inch (9mm) diameter stainless steel rod cooking grates and a double layer of steel under the hood for extra insulation.
Carts – the 660 has a double door caster to move in and out of your installation for service and maintenance. It additionally comes with trim pieces and a concealer strip for an option to hide the wheels.
This grill has no side shelves and hence no side burner. However, there’s an optional dual side burner. Just like any summit, they are available in LP and NG models. The LP models have Weber ‘precision fuel gauge “. Simply hang the propane tank on the fuel gauge scale and it’ll measure the approximate level of your fuel and the weight in 20% increments.
The summit also has an extra set of water friendly vents just above the control panel instead of only the normal air vents all gas grills have. The cooking boxes are waterproof but be careful to take care of the carts because they aren’t. If left exposed to the rain, they’ll take in water and may funnel it to the grease pan inside the cart and cause quite a mess.
History of the Weber company
Weber barbecues grills are the number 1 barbeque brand in the market today and loved by millions all over the world and it all started with one man called George Stephen in 1952 when barbeque was a craze.
Back then, the popular grill design was the open charcoal brazier which often left the meat vulnerable to the weather. So, George created a closed, dome shaped one, took it home, made an air vent and it found out it worked.
Later on, he quit his job and started selling the new grills and became quite popular with everyone all over. From the modest start, weber grew to be an internationally recognized name in the grilling world starting a new era of grills.

In October 2013, George Stephen was inaugurated into the barbeque hall of fame at the world series of barbeque championship events that took place in Kansas City. His son, Jim Stephen, who took over from George, was the one who accepted the award on the family’s behalf.
