    Limited Edition 26" Kettle in Glen Blue - THE UNICORN OF ALL UNICORNS! For Sale NOW

    Ordered mine Saturday morning. Just after midnight. Just came in today. Let me tell you, they did a fine job on this grill. The porcelain work is excellent. So torn on whether to cook on it now. I already have a 26er that I use. 🤔 Here's a few pics .. raining now. I'll take it outside...

    New Front Shelf from the Fire Ring Guy!

    Thanks guys. That was me that lit up the shelf. I was thinking about doing that since before I bought it. When another user on FB showed me their red insert had fallen out and was only Gorilla taped inside, that made the decision for me. Truth be told, the shelf is nice, but I wasn't (and still...

    Glow plugs for sale on Weber’s sight, shouldn’t that be under warranty.

    They have been replacing them for free and I wouldn't see that changing for the time being. But. Truth be told, they are only rated for a 150 starts and are a wear item.

    Make Weber Connect Better

    The temp logging and graphing is coming. Weber mentioned it in a review comment for the app over at the Google Play Store.

    Update from the Weber CEO - SmokeFire related.

    Looks to be the first time I've seen Weber acknowledge there have been issues with the SmokeFire launch.

    Where we stand on the smokefire

    As far as I know, the only difference is displays are in celcius and they come with a GBS grate. Oh, and probably a bunch of warning decals the US models don't have.

    Where we stand on the smokefire

    I bought my SmokeFire on 4/26 fully realizing what I was getting into. But, I only did it because I had full faith in Weber to get their issues sorted out. It was an easy decision for me because it wasn't going to be my primary cooker. I would have never even entertained a pellet grill if not...

    Weber Smokefire Gen2?

    I think Gen 2 just became a reality with the latest firmware. I cooked with it tonight and performance was rock solid. I'll be doing a long brisket cook this weekend. If I don't see any weird temp swings or rollbacks that will prove alot to me. Without exaggeration, the grill was a pleasure to...

    A new player in the kettle game...

    I think I understand what you are saying.... You can rotate the ash catcher ring so the controls wind up on the other side of the kettle. It can be assembled either way. I always cook from the side of the kettle and have the damper control facing me.

    Weber Fire Pit For Sale

    It's now sitting in the back of my truck. A friend alerted me to it yesterday. It was pending pickup. The person dropped out and she messaged me this morning. I picked it up this afternoon. The porcelain parts are perfect. Center section, legs, and handle mounts all have some rust. Wood...

    Weber Performer Deluxe vs Summit Charcoal

    $2,500? Ouch is right .. Up here in the US they sell for $1,999. They should have been priced at $1000 for the standalone and $1500 with the cart. They could have parked these things next to Big Green Eggs in every Ace and Tru Value in America with a sign inside saying, "Is your Kamado all that...

    Weber Performer Deluxe vs Summit Charcoal

    Amongst the sea of kettles in my collection, a 2014 Copper Performer Platinum and a Summit Charcoal Grilling Center sit side by side on my deck. I love them both, but truth be told, the Summit is superior in almost every way. By design, the Summit is a superior Kamado for low and slow and a...

    NEW Weber Stainless Steel Performer Green on craigslist (not mine) NJ

    The Performer has all its parts. I picked it up today. :D Everything was there and was indeed brand new and unused. She's a little dusty and there is lots of glue residue on the stainless parts. I guess he didn't take pics with the bowl panel in place because there is pieces of the protective...
