The group I’m in is “Weber Summit Charcoal Grilling”. I see a lot of people take the Weber riser shelf and put a stone on top of that.Can you share a link to the facebook group? Don't know if that's allowed here . On the idea of making Pizza on the E6 I am still not sure it will match my expectations. All the pizza I see made on the E6 looks ok like the image I attached. But for the price of the E6 I could get a Performer and an ooni and still have 200 left for fuel and steaks.
If the summit can make pizza as good as the ooni then I would prefer to have just one grill/oven but I haven't been able to find a video or review about the summit making pizzas that nice.
First off welcome to our little addiction, I have never used or been around a E6 but would love to see how it cooks and handles cold weather,etc. But i do have 2 performers that I do love and can do about any kind of cook you can think of.
So I have to say any type of performer.
I probably watched too many videos. Do you think it smokes as well as a WSM?If you have the money, get the Summit. I've had both the Performer and Summit and the Summit is that much better. That being said, you can't go wrong with the Performer either, but the Summit is better in every facet.
Better than a WSM. I sold my 18 WSM as part of my upgrade to the E6. However, a WSM might have more capacity without the E6 having the expander rack installed above the cooking grate. I can see my E6 doing two 15# packer briskets easily though.
My wife was the same way about our E6. She decided it was money well spent when the food starting coming out of it!My wife was fully supportive of the E6. Maybe upgrade the wife along with the grill
Who wouldn’t want to eat good food? My wife loves what I cook. And on the E6.
I was pretty impressed by the videos.Can't tell any difference in the food, but the Summit is easier on charcoal, the burn will last a lot longer with full charcoal, and the Summit is a lot easier to use and cleanup. I use the WSM for overfill from now on. Summit does everything else.
Most of my pork butts take 10-14 hours, My Performer with gas lighting will be the last cooker to leave my home. You can do it all with a kettle and a 26' performer would be great if they made 1. I'm sure the E6 is great just cant justify that much and me with a performer already.
