    Weber Smokefire: Great Grill - Still Learning

    After using many brands successfully I settled on Cabelas. They’re made by Lumberjack in the the same factory where they make Weber pellets.

    Fingers Crossed on Decent Weather

    Some people use half sheet baking pans. I use foil pans that are about half the height of standard pans. I found them at Publix Supermarket.

    Fingers Crossed on Decent Weather

    I used water pans in my RecTec, Camp Chef, and Smokefire. It adds moisture and collects the grease in the Smokefire.

    Fingers Crossed on Decent Weather

    The water pan is a personal preference thing and doesn't throw anything for a loop. That's like saying don't cook on high humidity days. Just silly. I always put water in the drip pan for Butts and they always cook fine.

    A new Weber pellet grill - The Searwood

    A drip pan only covers a small percentage of the cook chamber. If you had drip pans from side to side you would need 15" pans to mimic a conventional drip tray. I measured my Camp Chef and there was a total of 3 inches open space over the full length of the cook chamber. The rest was covered...

    ELX6 Initial Thoughts

    Congrats on your new toy. Loosen the lid hinge bolts just a tad and put your lid down and close that gap. Retighten the bolts. If you're a Facebook user then you might join the Weber SmokeFire WoodFired Pellet Grill: Owners Group. It's a good group and I'm biased on that as I'm one of the...

    EX6 - Not loving it

    You are definitely not the first to be disappointed. I'm tickled with mine. I ask new Smokefire/pellet grill owners a lot of questions Is it a Gen1 or Gen2? I'm admin on a FB Smokefire group and try to help some of our 10K members troubleshoot problems so I hope I don't offend you. Thousands...

    Visiting Austin

    A good source of information is the bbq restaurant directory below. Page 20 has the Lockhart joints and that’s a short drive from Austin. Have fun.

    Defrost time chart.

    Our daughter got a free 21 pounder from BJs and it went into the fridge at 1 PM. Just enough time with a cushion. :)

    Adapting gas grill recipes for SmokeFire

    I don't use this to guide my cooks but you have an info source on your phone. The Weber Connect app has lots of recipes for the Smokefire and will give you a guided cook. Just follow the app. It might be worth a try.

    You smoking a turkey for Thanksgiving?

    My family prefers spatchcocked birds off the Smokefire. Dry brine and then herb butter slather for the cook - top grate. We use the drippings for giblet gravy and they pick up the smoke flavor.

    Smokehouse Pellets

    I never heard that noise on my RecTec nor Camp Chef. My EX6 eats anything without complaint but when I fed Bear Mountain to the EX4 it definitely groaned. The Smokefires do not all behave the same.
