Weber's 2012 accessories launch marks largest in company history
Furniture Today Staff -- Casual Living, January 9, 2012
Weber-Stephen Products, a manufacturer of outdoor gas and charcoal grills and grilling accessories, is introducing more than 25 accessories for 2012 - the largest accessories launch in the company's 60-year history.
"Consumers are grilling much more than burgers and chicken today, and they are looking for quality tools and a greater range of accessories to have the versatility to cook any meal on the outdoor grill," said Trace Weskamp, director of accessories product development, Weber-Stephen Products.
New smoking accessories are one of the areas of focus for Weber. Findings from the 23rd annual Weber GrillWatch Survey show that 58% of American grillers report being interested or very interested in learning how to use a smoker.
Each of the Weber, Weber Original and Weber Style accessories brands feature new products
ranging from individual trial-sized smoker boxes to a porcelain-enameled Plancha.

assorted four-packs and six-packs. MSRP: $12.99 (four-pack), $17.99 (six-pack).
+ Weber Stainless Steel Smoker Box. Place this smoker box on the cooking grates and
transform any gas grill into a smoker. MSRP: $24.99.
