Having recently been in a nursery (yes) that sells BGEs and other "high end" grills that go for more, I can better understand Weber's target market for the Summit. There is definitely a niche consumer group that will be interested in it and it will be positioned toward the lower end of the spectrum in terms of cost.

You mean that the $2000 grilling center is at the lower end of the spending spectrum for the target demographic? If so, what competitive products are you comparing it to?

I was about to pull the trigger on one and realized that there is no way to attach a rotisserie. That is a deal breaker for me since I use mine weekly.

I talked to a Weber CSR the other day. She said that Weber is currently working on developing a whole truckload of brand new accessories specifically geared for the new SCG. She said the very first thing that will come out is a rotisserie for the SCG.

To me, the only logical design/shape for a rotisserie ring for the SCG would be a wedge shaped ring that would sit flat on the bottom bowl like a traditional rotisserie for a 22, but the top is cut at a 45 degree angle. The front of the ring near the lid handle would be at full height and then it would slope downward at an angle toward the rear lid hinge so you could pull the lid down on the ring. It would have the appropriate slot and groove for the spit notched into it of course. That is the only way I could see a rotisserie properly fitting on there.
This is the original Weber kettle. The most powerful bbq grill in the world and can blow your taste-buds clean off! So, you have to ask yourself one question: "Do you feel hungry? Well, do you punk?"

Nice. I was wondering about a roti. I do think the Joetisserie is a good design.  http://www.kamadojoe.com/joetisserie/
And also the Kamado Mate. They are similar. I wonder what's different in the patents.

I find this kind of interesting because I don't think we have any members in the Salt Lake area, and I search SLC craigslist pretty regularly and there is NEVER anything in Salt Lake.  Anyone else seen billboards?

I'm in the Salt Lake area. I have never posted on the site before. So hello for the first time from SLC.



I picked that one up on KSL.com which has a classified section. I look at KSL more than Craigslist. And locally I bet more people use KSL then Craigslist.
