Summer Grilling and Fixing
Summer is synonymous with grilling and I sincerely missed having a grill since moving a couple of years ago. Not having a BBQ grill living near Kansas City was almost a crime! Really though, nothing tastes as good as grilled food does. There’s also a special flavor that charcoal grills achieve that gas grills cannot. My kids and I were ecstatic to get this Weber Kettle grill and home improvement products from DAP. Now we can have our own friends over for a BBQ and our house can look great to host!
DAP Home Improvement
After Spring Cleaning, it’s time for home improvement projects. Luckily I rent our house, so most major issues are covered by our landlords, but I like to take good care of the place I live in. I do all minor repairs and such myself. We are actually moving out at the end of this month, so this set of DAP spackling and sealing products really came in handy! We take pretty good care of our walls, but after two years there are some issues. Nail holes to fill, for instance. Sop before we fire up the Weber Kettle grill, we need to make the house presentable.
Drywall mud would work just fine for these tears in the drywall. A toothbrush holder did not hold up as advertised and the sticky strips, which were supposed to be paint and wall safe, were not. So we’ve had these lovely patches in our wall for a while now. I was already filling holes from screws where the towel rack fell out of the wall (it’s an old place, LOL) so I figured I’d use the DAP DryDex spackle to patch the tears as well. It’s doesn’t hurt it. It goes on this pinkish-purple color and dries totally white. Sand it onceit is white! It’s also solid enough that once dry, I could replace the screws right into it for the towel rack if I wanted.
There is also flexible spackling for cracks in an area with some bend. These cracks typically reappear over time if filled with regular spackle. Take care of those cracks for good, with all the regular benefits that is can be sanded and painted. The Platinum Patch filler is great for any issues on the outside of your home. Fill in old wiring holes and be sand and paint to blend in with your house and it will stand up to the elements.
The PlasticWood-x will fill in any chips, holes, or cracks in wood, making it as good as new! There’s also Alex Flex Crown Molding Sealant. Guaranteed for 60 years, won’t shine through paint, and ready in 30 minutes. Use the Dynaflex Ultra exterior sealant for windows, doors, siding, and trim. It’s guaranteed not to crack, resistant to UV fading and dirt buildup, and is lifetime mold, mildew, and algae resistant! Your house will be sealed up and ready for the coming fall and winter for sure with these products!
Getting the Weber Kettle Grill Ready
Now that my house was suitably fixed up, it was time to break in the Weber Kettle grill! It’s the 22″ size and I had burgers and corn on the cob and asparagus ready. It comes in a big box but is not unmanageable. Some assembly is required to get it fully put together. The instructions could be a little more clear, but I got it together and ready to grill in about 20 minutes. I stacked up a bunch of charcoal and lit them. The two back wheels make it extremely easy to position safely on the patio.
The lid and cooking grill can both hang on the edge of the grill which is nice, though it’s difficult to find and catch the hook on the lid once it’s lit and hot. My arms aren’t quite long enough to hold it away from the skin of my arm and peer in to see the hook. I imagine someone with longer arms would have no problem utilizing it.
Cooking on the Weber 22″ Kettle Grill
It took about 15 minutes for the charcoals to fully ignite and I placed the cooking grill and lid on for another 10-15 minutes to get the cooking surface nice and hot for good searing. I left the vents at the bottom where you drop the ashes, open as well as the vents in the lid to keep the airflow going and not put out the coals. Starting with the corn on the cob, I turned it every 7 minutes or so until cooked, then added the burgers and asparagus. I started the asparagus on a grill tray for cooking, then crisped it up by placing it directly on the grill. I like it crispy! The 22″ size is really quite huge! There is more than enough room to cook up a bunch of burgers and toast the buns at the same time if you want.
I spread the charcoal evenly while cooking and it cooked everything up great! Perfect medium-rare burgers, delicious corn-on-the-cob, and crispy asparagus. It doesn’t take too much time to get to cooking either, which I love. It’s easy to control the approximate temperature with the vents above on the lid and below. The handles DO stay cool and make it easy to move the grill if needed (not recommended if hot) and to lift the lid.
To put out the coals, just put the lid on, and close the vents! After about 10 minutes I take a ball of aluminum foil out and rub down the cooking grill. It works just as well as a brush and you don’t lose steel bristles. I clean up the grill nicely, then replace the lid. You still want the cooking grill a bit warm or hot to better clean it off. Usually, I let it sit overnight, closed, then go out the next day to do the rest.
The Weber Kettle grill has an aluminized-steel one-touch cleaning system. Just move the lever at the bottom of the grill back and forth and the fan-like blades push the ash through the vents into the aluminum ash-catcher below. You just lift the bowl with the ashes and dispose of them. Simple as that! Charcoals that are burned enough fall through to the bottom and the cleaning system sweeps them away. The system really does catch almost everything; there is very little is left once it’s done.
Weber is the name in grilling and this 22″Weber Kettle grill does not disappoint. With peel-proof paint, lightweight design, one-touch cleaning, it makes grilling easy, fun and delicious. So be sure to pick up your needed DAP home improvement products so your house can make a great showing at your next BBQ with the Weber Kettle grill!

Never really had much of a grill. That stuff really sounds useful for dry wall too
Weber is such a great brand! We enjoy grilling over the summer, and even year round at times!
This 22″Weber Kettle grill does seem terrific and great to use in the summer. My brother in law would be happy with this since he has many BBQ’s.
I’ve used DAP products in the past and they worked great for me, this is the first time I’ve seen the ‘dry time indicator’ though, great idea.
As far as Weber goes, I agree it is THE name in grills. I’ve had other name grills that came and went, but when I got the Weber, I never needed another.
I love the system here. This would be a great improvement for the grilling needs of my family.
We use DAP products for repairs around the house. The Weber Grill sounds great. I like the large grilling surface and the one touch cleaning.
Thank you for the aluminum foil tip! We love to grill out in the summer. Food just tastes so much better with that flavor.
We use Dap all the time from our kids hanging things on the walls and i patch them up. love to bbq in the summer
I have always used Weber grills and find them easy to use and there one-step cleaning system is quick and easy.
The DAP sounds really useful around the house! Weber grills really are the best!
I love day DAP products I. Have used and trusted DAP for years and WEBER GRILLS ARE TOPS also
I have a couple of holes that definitely could use some fixing in the house!
My husband loves to grill. And we could use the Dap for one of our walls.
Both these products are awesome. I love using Dap around the house to fill small cracks, and fix minor holes in the walls. The Weber grill is durable and would meet all my grilling needs for years to come. Cleanup is easy and I’d love to win it. Thanks for the sharing review and chance to win.
My husband loves to grill during the summer and this grill looks great
I have so many home repairs that need done. The spackling would really come in handy. I love charcoal grilled food so much better than using gas. The flavor can’t be beat!
I haven’t used DAP spackling and sealing products before, so I will look into this to get the best deal and fill up the nail holes in my wall.
Gotta love Weber!
I love Weber grills!
Nothing says grilling like a Weber! and it’s my boyfriends last name.. great review!
Great review, I like the fact that the sealants do not mold like most do.
Yes, Dap and Weber are great brand products and we use both around our house!!
I like that the ample size won’t leave me fumbling and yelling for someone to get me a plate to hold stuff while I shuffle things around on the grill. That takes the stress out of grilling!
We use these products at our home especially right now since we are remodeling. Also we grill several days a week in the summer and I know hubby would love that nice Weber Kettle grill!
these products seem so awesome!
There are awesome products! I love cooking out on the grill, especially on a Weber!
Always been a fan (and user) of DAP and Weber; DIYer and BBQer 😀 I even taught my exes and sons how to spackle and BBQ LOL Shoot, my caulking gun is over 20 years old even.
Weber is a great brand the grill is probably a good one
We used this patchup on a ceiling a while back and it worked really well.
I would like to have this grill.
I think that looks like a really nice grill.
I’m moving this summer and someone recommended Dap spackle to me for fixing the holes in my walls. I’m also in the hunt for a BBQ for the new place, so your review was perfectly timed! I have always heard that Weber grills are the best quality ones out there.
great products..I use these on my house too..and the grill..i am so drooling over it
I could really use some DAP products! Thanks for the review! 🙂
Home improvements are an every summer weekend happening at our home. And grilling after always is great!
Wow, we could really use those home improvement products! Thanks and God bless!
I likes the review because it covered the essentials of what you really need to know about the grill. I like the stay cool handles and the 10 year warranty-didn’t know that. DAP products are great have used them for years.
Your review definitely made me hungry. Must stop by the farmer’s market and grab some fresh Jersey corn! LOL We have to do a little spackling in our home, and you definitely made it look simple! Thanks!
I love the looks of thiss grill our poor ole little one wont make another season.
I Love Weber’s Grills But Mine Is Falling Apart I LOVE Charcoal Grilling !!! Tsvm 4 The INFO !!
I need this, seriously! The last grill we had, and the only one we’ve had since being married was so bulky it was a pain just to get it out and use. Plus the pain was always chipping off which was gross when you’re cooking with something. This looks great!
Those Dap products seem awesome and just in time because I am about to start renovating my home. I also love Weber, so many awesome products! I would definitely try out some steaks on it!
I have tried many of these DAP products and have never been disappointed by them. We used to have a Weber grill but have a cheaper brand right now and there is a huge difference for sure.
Truly excellent products.
Weber makes great products.
Your grilled asparagus looks yummy.
Weber is a good name for grills. This kettle grill is perfect for the deck.
What a great review. You really covered everything and it sounds super. Hope I win. thx
I love to grill!! and this grill looks fantastic
I miss cooking on a charcoal grill. Using the gas grill is so fast and easy — haven’t used charcoal in years. The taste is so much better with charcoal, think it’s time to get a Weber Charcoal Grill.
I’d definitely use the sealants and spackling as I purchased a home last year and still have some things to fix up. The grill would come in handy too.
I have a Weber gas grill. Haven’t used charcoal in awhile. Would like to get back to using it.
I would to have a Weber grill! I understand why you love it! They are truly a quality product! As far as spackling, that’s my husband’s department.
Our grill is just about on its last year. We have had it for about six years and grill almost every day during the summer!
my husband would love that grill. he loves to grill so much food on the weekends.
We love grilling out. It is a daily thing here in the summer
What a great review. We love grilling in our house.
I enjoyed the review. I actually need some of that spackle because I have some spots. The grill I liked knowing how long it took you. That is helpful information.
I love grilling.
Jsut moved so need a new grill
im home 90% of the time my yard and porch and home are my refuge all this set of prizes looks to be things that would make life better here they are all things i need
We have grilled so much already this summer! I love grilling corn on the cob!
My family loves grilled food. This looks like a great grill. we could use a new grill.
My house is a fixer upper I need this help!!
The DAP products are amazing! I have used them before because my house was built in 1850 . There are always projects to do and I just don’t feel like cooking indoors. Having a grill ready to go is perfect . I can taste the hamburger already! Thanks
I love grilling over charcoal. We need several reasons for the house help.
Nice tip on the aluminum foil to clean it! With summer here and in full swing, my hubby’s to do list is filled lol. Some of his upcoming projects use these products as well.
We could use both at our house. We’re currently fixing up the place and live to grill.
I love day DAP products I. Have used and trusted DAP for years and WEBER GRILLS ARE TOPS
My son is buying his first house. He could use this grill and the Dap products for his house.
This grill looks awesome!
equipment are products are good and can’t wait to try them, nice review!
Can’t go wrong with a Weber grill! We used to have one but gave it away to my folks after we moved. We were always grilling in the summer.
I cant wait to grill again. lol
!! Your meal sounds AWESOME!! LOL !
I miss grilling!!
We just finished a home Reno and I always prefer dap products over others- especially their caulk and spakle. The caulk is easier to work with that other brands, and isn’t as sticky to clean up. I love the spackles with the color added- takes out the guess work and forces me to be patient and wait for a dry surface lol
This reminds me… I need to get some DAP caulk for our tub!
Can’t go wrong grilling on a Weber!
Nothing beats grillin’ in the summer! 🙂
I love the tray under the foil, I usually just put the foil down then grumble when it crumbles. Hope you don’t mind if I steal that!
I’m in love with this grill!!! Looks really nice!
Love the review. Passing it along to my niece. They just moved into a fixer upper.
I’m redoing my sons room. I think I’ll need that Spackle stuff to repair the walls.
We are a family that loves our Weber. This past year we relocated. In our new house we have been busy remodeling and using DAP spackling,
I love the way this grill looks! Weber always has made great grills!
Weber and DAP products are the best. We have a small older Weber grill.
We use DAP’s products all the time and we love them. Thanks for this review because I was unaware of the DryDex spackle. This is a great idea that I will be trying.
I could use the exterior filler for some areas of my home. My son has been wanting a Weber grill like this one.
I love doing home improvement projects after spring cleaning to keep up on everything! Weber is a great brand!
Awesome! We haven’t got to grill this year because ours broke, but unfortunately it’s unfixable! Haha
I’m adding this grill to my wish list. It looks perfect for the cookouts I have!
We could use a new grill (we grill here every other week here in sunny California). No fish touch my grill.
The Weber Kettle is the perfect size for our family of 4. I’d love to cook some chicken wings on the grill. Also, I have some drywall in my garage that needs repair, gonna give the DAP a try!
I love the size of this grill!
This grill is the perfect size for small and large parties/cookouts.
I love to grill on a Weber! My wife always has a couple of fixer up projects so this would be a fantastic win!
The grill is a pretty good size ! I’ve never tried the DAP products before but they looks amazing going to have to try them out
Sounds like a great prize pack. I love Dap products. We have used their products for years.
We grill at least 4 times a week here in south coastal Florida. And, much of it we source ourselves. Seafood galore.
I really like DAP. We’ve used it numerous times.
I love Weber grills! Growing up, my dad always had one and I love how reliable they are! This one sounds great, I love that it is on a stand!
Weber is such a good, solid brand. Great Products at fair prices.
I loved the review!
I really need to grill some veggies too be for the scurvy sets in. That asparagus looks delicious. I love DAP products too! They are my go to.
I only cook on the grill, I shovel a path to my grill in the winter.
I have a repair I need to make on a wall. I will look for this products. It looks so easy to use.
What great products! I have so much that i can do with them!

It’s getting so hot out – almost 100 today! I would love one of these right about now
We love grilling in this house! Had ours for about 5 years and it hasn’t skipped a summer, definitely think it’s time for a new one though. Thanks for sharing!
I have a lot of small projects around the house that needs to be done. We need a new grill and Weber is one of the best.
That’s a great tip with the aluminum foil after i seen people finding steel bristles in their food
I enjoyed reading about how to fix small repairs and the products to use. We have had many Weber grills over the years. We were them out. Could use a new one now. Loved your cooking and cleaning how-to’s.
Grilling for my husband will keep him fueled for all our DIY projects
I love to grill, all year long. The flavors are so much better.
We use these products also. We grill pretty much year round and Weber makes great products.
