Ď91 Weber Pellet Grill
« on: November 15, 2022, 05:00:16 PM »
The Spider 22 has arrived and I did a test fit on this red head.  Plan is to put it on an OTP, but weíll see.  Should be a fun experiment.

Interesting.   Is this the same company that makes the blower system that mounts where the ash bucket goes?

Yes, this company also makes that system and is called the "Venom".  I've already got a charcoal blower (Thermoworks Billows/Signals) and am really not interested in that.  I am interested in trying pellets though so I thought this would be a fun way to try it while staying with a Weber grill.  There is a SmokeFire in my area for $200 but admittedly did not work without some parts so I really didn't want to go that route with something used and possibly defective.  The Spider 22 pellet adapter has been around for a couple of years and already has some updates over the original to address issues with moisture and hopper door seal.  $100 bucks off now so I'll give it a try.

I think I like it better on the brownie, lilí bit more inconspicuous.
I have to say, though, I would have jumped on that smokefire, but really donít know about the parts.
I trust our judgement haha.

@bamakettles it has been quiet lately, hope the spider impresses and you get a good cook on the butt. I like it on the red, but I'm prone to like black and red.

Thanks.  Iíve seen so many SmokeFires for sale that advertise new ignition rods and parts - makes me think they may be high maintenance.  Hopefully this contraption is not.

I think Iím partial to the red as well.  Iíve seen posts on FB that these fit perfectly on an OTP, just have to remove the spider 22 base.  May try that this weekend to see if it fits my blue OTP.

Iím a bit curious about itÖ.interested in your experience.

As a heavy Smokefire user, I will say itís 99% and requires absolutely minimal maintenance. Iíve only replaced the glow plug once in over a year, and thatís because I pushed it way too long on cleaning and caught it on fire with jerky. Used the hose to put it out after it smoldered and killed the plug. My experience, and I guarantee Smokefire produces better flavor than this will.

Iíve seen the Spider but not sure Iíve seen anyone really using it other than a vid or two on the tube

I had one set in the smaller performer cart.  Used some aluminum to space the table out a few inches.

Thanks for the comments and pics guys.  It's nice to have some conversation going on the forum again.  Wife's birthday is this weekend, hope to do the cook but it's her weekend so we'll probably go shoe shopping lol.....
