    It’s SmokeFAIL official! Weber has officially said “too bad deal with it!”

    The parameters of the debate have been laid out and covered ad nauseum. Let's move on.

    Keeping my SmokeFire!

    OK, I've been watching patiently for the ash and embers of this debate to dissipate, but they linger. Let's stick a fork in this sucker and move on. Thanks.

    It’s SmokeFAIL official! Weber has officially said “too bad deal with it!”

    Yes, there would be some small amount that would be acceptable. I think we get a small amount of ash on food in the WSM due to the movement of air out of the cooker. Blowers in the WSM might contribute to it, too. I'd have to see the accumulation on a piece of tape to get a sense of how much...

    It’s SmokeFAIL official! Weber has officially said “too bad deal with it!”

    I'd like to see you do this test again, but with something sticky like aluminized foil tape to see if you can catch ash on the adhesive surface. I'd think ash would land on and then blow off of a plain, flat piece of foil. Then repeat the test at high temp with the fan running fast.

    It’s SmokeFAIL official! Weber has officially said “too bad deal with it!”

    The more I read this thread and others on the subject of SmokeFire, the more I think some marketing graduate students need to do a case study of how Weber marketed SmokeFire and how customer reacted to the product launch. I'm being serious, there's a lot to unpack here. As with most things, the...

    It’s SmokeFAIL official! Weber has officially said “too bad deal with it!”

    Because it's Weber. A company we love and trust. A company that we expect a lot from, maybe more than we should. If Weber says they've improved the pellet grill and have a new system that sends grease to an internal tray and 70% of ash to a drawer, people want to believe them because it's...

    Marketing fluff or "puffery" is, "Brand X Grills make the best-tasting steaks you've ever eaten in your life!" False advertising is much more serious.

    Weber Master Touch colors

    I think there may be colors in other grills besides MasterTouch. We recently saw photos of Weber presenting a Glen Blue (think robin’s egg blue) 26” kettle to Tuffy Stone. I wouldn’t be surprised to see that color show up on other grills. As far as the MasterTouch deep ocean blue, you never...
