New Weber products on the way... non-charcoal items
« on: July 06, 2023, 09:44:40 AM »
Our rep let us know about a few new goodies on the way from Weber in the coming months...

1) They will be releasing two portable griddles (14" and 28" I believe) (17" and 22"!) in addition to the two stand alone units that were recently released. Might be a good camping type setup that would definitly have potential IMO.

2) Weber Q3200 will be retired and is being replaced by a new Q2800 model

3) Smokefire is receiving another re-vamp and may not even be called the Smokefire anymore. Apparenltly they are ditching the rear hopper in favor of the more standard side mount option used by most other manufacturers, and the genesis style flavourizer bars are being changed. Personally I think those are two of the strongest features of the Smokefire so I have mixed feelings on this change. Very interested to see what the build quality will be like on the new re-design. I really hope itís not being trimmed down.

4) Weber Summit Gassers - Long overdue for an update! They have been hinting at it for years but apparently its actually close to becoming a reality. Pricepoint is going to be a big shock for many so I really hope they back it up with a heavier build quality than the current genereation. Currently the value is not there for the pricepoint and they are hard to sell when compared to a Napoleon PRO unit or similar. Fingers crossed!

Have a good one!

Thanks for the updates Matt

Iíve seen the Ď24 genesis top of the line in person, whole new level. Very cool stuff coming. I miss the smaller traveler in your list.

Portable griddles Iím interested in. Only reason I havenít grabbed a 36Ē is because my Blackstone works just fine.

Smokefire, Iím nervous about that. Everything about the current design is why it makes head and shoulders better flavor than any pellet on the market Iíve tasted (the majority of the bigger names). Itís just better.

Summit gas, interested. Iíve been eyeing the current cook center offering, and hope they really knock it out of the park!

I can't wait to see the new Summit's! Hopefully they look closer to the Gen 1/Gen 2 era Summits. I also hope we get more colors other than just Stainless or Black.
I think I might need a bigger backyard soon...

Rumor has it the new Summit gassers will also offer a top down sear burner.

So does that make it similar to the rotisserie/broiler burner seen on Hestan Gas Grills? That one is a top mount rotisserie burner model instead of a rear rotisserie burner like the previous Summit models and most Gas grill manufacturers.

That sounds awesome! I hope this means they're beefing up the rotisserie itself too to support larger foods above 20 lbs.

@MacEggs

Hey Mark,

No new info unfortunately! Our rep really had hinted at the portable griddles but didn't give us much info outside of the sizes. I will try to ask for more details next time he stops in as I'm interested as well. Hope all is well!
