Not a Weber. Proceed with caution; do NOT expect it to look good after the first or second cook.
It's the iconic symbol for the backyard. It's family/friends, food and fun. What more do you need to feel everything [is] going to be all right. As long as we can still have a BBQ in our backyard, the world seems a bit of a better place. At least for that moment. -reillyranch

No worries. The more you see the more you recognize.

Here are some things I noticed. Others will recognize more differences.

Shape of lid dome wrong

Logo placement(s) too low, seem like an afterthought

Lid vent is wrong and so is placement

Bowl would not have bolt-on handle; bowl handles are not perpendicular to ground; lid handle should have heat shield if recent

Weber handles don’t have “finger reliefs”

Way too many tines in the triangle: Weber 18 and 22 have 3 per side (unless 1990s Bar-B-Kettle models with daisy wheel bowl intakes); 26ers have 4 per side

A colored grill should not have black leg sockets

Bowl’s intake is a centered wheel like the lid vent instead of 3 sweeps or 3 daisy wheels

Grate straps aren’t black, they’re shiny and bolted on

Cook grate has no handles but a grate lifter? A kettle this big should have grates with 2 support bars running across each

You’ll see red Budweiser grills like this also. (That said, there have been legit Budweiser and Bud Light “Carne Asada” Weber grills.

Damn, I like that triangle !!
Those in the cheaper seats clap your hands,

There’s no brand name for this design. Just another company making a crappy ripoff, and another huge company paying them to sully their own name (even more) instead of spending a dollar they’d never miss to have Weber make one the right way for them.

“Thanks, InBev!”
