Went to the weber restraunt when we were in Chicago this time last year.Looked far to snobby for my wife and I's jeans and trainers so went to the pub across the road,can't remember it's name but it was one of your micro-brewries type of thing. Got drunk on a beer called Chicago gold bloody lovely it was....

Rocket-Ron...

As a Chicagoan, I was thrilled when the Weber restaurant opened here. To tell you the truth, however, I've found it to be a bit underwhelming. I'm no seasoned veteran, but I swear I can produce a better porterhouse on a Weber than you get at that restaurant. I've not had a bad experience there...just nothing to write home about.

And the bar you enjoyed was likely the Rock Bottom Brewery...always a fun place!! Next time you come to Chicago and are looking for a great steak, I would recommend (in no particular order):

Gene & Georgetti's
Chicago Chop House
Keefer's

(just my two cents)

I've owned several gas grills over the years, and I bought a Weber Smoky Joe to "test the waters" with charcoal. The first porterhouse I cooked on it was better than anything I ever made on a gas grill and I was hooked.

The next day, I went about bought a 22" Weber Platinum Kettle grill, and it's the best cooking device I've ever owned. I now use my Smoky Joe for starting coals when indirect grilling or barbecuing.

Starting with the Kettle got me into smoking, so then I picked up a Brinkmann offset barrel smoker. It's great for doing large amounts of ribs, chicken, pork shoulder (haven't tried a brisket yet - am going to this summer)

But all in all, I love my Weber Kettle for its sheer versatility.
