Most tailgates these days have the essentials — namely a working grill, boatload of food, coolers stocked with cold beverages and more than enough fold-up chairs. However, body temperature is usually an afterthought. Staying warm is just as important as these tailgating staples, especially with the cold-weather months drawing near. Fortunately Weber has a well-suited option for tailgaters that don’t want to suffer frozen extremities before their sporting event begins.
The portable Weber Fireplace provides plenty of warmth, with what online reviewers deem to be a perfect size. Its diameter is 29.5 inches, with the other dimensions measuring 32.1” high, 31” wide and 28” deep, contained in the “heavy-gauge” steel construction. The porcelain-enameled lid is the MVP of the contraption, because not only does it enclose the fire, but it also keeps the heat at a desirable height for those sitting around it.
Extinguishing the blaze is also the responsibility of the lid (made with wooden handles), which fits right over the wood once the support ring is removed. The one knock on this product is the lack of a mesh shield around the body, especially with the all the destruction forest fires have caused in our country recently. However, it’s easy enough to spend a few bucks at Home Depot and install your own wire shield.
