never say never here comes the weber pellet
« Reply #15 on: August 19, 2019, 11:36:57 AM »
Too much damn money.  I haven't used a pellet pooper but I feel I really wanted that kind of ease with smoking I'd just use the oven.  Put some smoke on first then throw it in the oven.  I enjoy barbecue with charcoal and wood.

Iíve done that. Works well and saves coal. Iíve also used a snake several times while I was gone all day at work. Itís never failed me rain and shine. Plus you donít have to worry about a power outage [emoji12]. But seriously you donít lol. We are getting together with friends for a smoke fest coming up. The host is a Weber guy too. He said he was charging a $5 dollar convenience fee to any friends needing to plug in lol.

Exciting! If it's for real, it ought to be showing up in stores soon. They'll want it in the store displays for Christmas/Black Friday and in the advertisements.

I think they will capture some market, I have never thought of adding a pooper to grilling, to much fun the kettle way, we have always eaten late, I always have time to get something on the grill

I make fun of all my buddies who use the ď outside ovens ď.

I'm pretty tight with my local Ace store, so I went up there today and made an inquiry. The Ace folks contacted their Weber rep, and were told that it will hit shelves in January.

Nice to have contacts.

I'm puttin' that at $1499.
Based on how they priced the Summit charcoal, I'll bet I'm not far off.

$1200 & $1400 my guess. Which is   Same price as ironwood and this pic sure looks like an ironwood

Knowing Weber, this is going to be a great pellet grill. I don't need one but I'll gladly order one to support Weber and I'll add one more toy to play with.  I'll start saving now. [emoji3][emoji3][emoji3]

   If this is priced over a thousand this will go the way of the Summit Charcoal grill. 5 to 7 WKC members will buy new 5 to 7 will buy used or deep discounted. I wish weber well on this.

I hope at least 2 different sizes will be offered.  If Weber is only going to offer
one size at one price that will not be much a hard push into the pellet market.
We would all be remiss if we simply ignore the negativity directed to this new offering,
and towards all pellet grills in general.  I know you have to consider your audience,
but damn folks.  The more Weber offerings, the better.
