Unboxing the Weber Go Anywhere

The Weber Go Anywhere is a compact little BBQ, and this shows in the size of its box. It arrives without its feet on and with the handle detached, to make it smaller to package. Our initial thoughts of the Go Anywhere were nothing other than positive. Immediately we noticed how high quality it is, and its sizeable cooking space. It folds away both easily and neatly and overall is a tidy and succinct piece of kit. It's also surprisingly stable.

When it comes to assembly, you need only spend five or so minutes. You attach the handle to the lid and the feet to the actual BBQ. It's very simple and the instructions are straightforward. You don't need any tools to do this, other than the plastic tool that comes included.
