Spider-22 Pellet Adapter for Weber Kettle
« on: October 06, 2019, 10:42:22 AM »
I havenít seen any talk about this on the forum. I was wondering how long it would take someone to come up with this kindaí thing.

I wish Iíd learned about it last spring when they were doing their Kickstarter campaign. They were only $200 to preorder back then. Now theyíre up to $280.

Not sure I see an advantage to this contraption. It turns your beautiful kettle into a pellet pooper? How do the pellets get injected into the kettle? Looks pretty clumsy 2me.

Sorry, I'll stick with charcoal... the original, the way it's supposed to be.

You must have missed the thread because it was discussed then.

Pellets arenít my style. I can smoke rain or shine with no worry of mechanical failure or need for a cord but they are popular for some reason.

I probably wouldn't attach this to any of my kettles but as an owner of two pellet grills, they just work I have made some of the best ribs on a pellet grill.

Yeah Iíve got friends that THINK they cook good ribs on a pellet grill too [emoji12]

Just kidding. I know they are legit.

I just put in an order for the revised Spider 22. I think there are a few tweaks over the last version. I ended up getting an almost free 2017 premium 22" kettle, due to some light damage and slightly out of round lid. It was too nice to scrap, but doesn't control heat very well due the above issues. I figured it would be perfect for the Spider 22. That way my other 2006 Premium 22" can stay all charcoal, use the rotisserie extension etc. I cant wait to receive it and report back how it works and my opinions about it. Should be fun to have both setups.

Even on the low setting . Even though you donít see smoke you can sure taste it

I have been looking at this for awhile, but I didnít want to buy a first generation.  What improvements/tweaks were made?

They have changed the temp control to include 275. The original went from 250 to 300.

That is actually the only complaint I had about mine that I purchased last year. Thing works great and is beyond simple to use. I use this all the time when I am too lazy to get out charcoal for the WSM.

I got an email today that these are now on sale for $199.... Not sure if anyone wants to try one, but I decided to get myself a new toy.  Never tried pellets before and I think I'll give it a whirl.....  Now to decide which kettle to try it with.  It requires the slot version with ash sweeps so maybe my '84 brownie that I've never cooked on or an '87 or '91 red....

I've thought about getting one but wasn't ready to spend the $ w/o some verification that it worked well. Certainly interested in your experience. Keep us posted!

Will do, delivery is tomorrow.  Going to put it on my blue OTP to start, found some mod examples on FB.  Got two bags of pellets ready.
