This basket is made of durable aluminized steel and will fit all Weber 22 inch kettle grills but also many other grills. I use them myself for a 2-zone setup.

It will help you keep your charcoal briquettes on one side and help you to use indirect grilling.

I am using these myself on my smoker, in combination with the vents on there, to add just enough charcoal to keep my temperature low enough for cooking some great food.

I also use them to have two heat sources on either side of the meat I cook. Especially with chicken, this is a great way to have even heat and not have to turn the chicken around all the time.
They are very sturdy and will last you a long time.

I like the fact that all the slotted openings will give the air enough room to flow through the charcoal and this makes it easy to control the temperature.

It will hold a full load of charcoal that you started with your Weber chimney starter or less if you do not need so much.

I guess it is pretty obvious that you can use this charcoal basket on any type of charcoal grill.

I am even using it on my smoker and barrel grill to keep the fire set up for 2-zone grilling.

My daughter who basically only uses her Kamado ceramic grill uses them also on that.
