With no pellet experience this may be a stupid question.  This says it holds 20 something pounds of pellets.  How much pellets get used for an average cook?  Is this like 5 cooks worth or not even close?
I do not have a pellet cooker but we might not really know until people use the thing in action.  It will really depend on the length of the cook, how hot you cook, and how efficient the cooker is.

Josh, it varies greatly on the size of your grill, how high of a temp you run, weather (particularly wind).  You may go thru 3lbs per hour running higher temps on a windy day.
You may only do 1lb per hour or much less  on a smaller pellet grill running 225 on a calm day.  Buying pellets on sale, typically will cost you about the same to cook with as KBB on sale.

Dave, I take it you have some experience with pellet grills, any recommendations on what brand of pellets to use?

I am a loyal Lumber Jack user.   Char-Hickory preferably, but I do
mix in cherry w/ brisket.  My wife actually has more experience with
this grill than I do.  It is so easy to use.  When I have the time, I would
rather tinker around with my WSM on a lazy weekend, but she can easily
throw on a packer brisket early in the morning before work on the
pellet grill.  She comes home for lunch, wraps in butcher paper,
puts it back in the smoker and we get to enjoy fresh smoked brisket on
any random weekday.

Life goals right here, gentlemen.
Wife: Let me guess... you want to grill again

I wonder why Weber isn't including the GBS grate in the US?

Maybe the GBS system is more popular overseas?  When is see it in use in the US it is usually just taken out for a wings Vortex cook or someone will throw a Lodge dutch oven in there.  Neither of which allow Weber to make more money.  People just tend to use their own cast iron rather than Weber branded inserts.
