Now that is beautiful, best I have seen.
$600 would be my goal for one not bought from a store. I’d also want to make sure I could register it with Weber. I think the warranty alone would probably justify the extra $400What would be a good buy for a new in the box gen2 EX6 from an individual selling one on FB?
I agree Rich. It was a pretty compelling reaction. One minute I am afraid to go in the water, and the next I say “that’s the one!”By the way the two of them raved about the SF ribs there wasn't any doubt who the winner was. It certainly seemed like a fair comparison also.
Excellent summary. Those on the wire who can grab one at half price are crazy no to do so.Sean,
There is little doubt that the SmokeFire will not be in the class of Yoder, MAK, or (new to me) Pitts and Spitts with respect to long-term durability. It isn’t built to that standard. But it is hard to argue with great cooking results. That video brought objective support to the anecdotal positives we have seen posted here on many occasions.
I think if I were to be able to get a SmokeFire (and stay married), my plan would be to shy away from the high heat grilling that I don’t need anyway, since I already have gas and kettle/other charcoal options for that. Then, I would be a fanatic about keeping it clean and out of the elements as much as possible. Doing that faithfully, I think, would probably buy a reasonable life expectancy, though not likely 15 years.
I was thinking that also. But when they opened all the smokers earlier in the video they were taking notes of how the ribs looked. So I don't think it was a completely blind taste test simply because the smoke fire already had a different look to the ribs than the rest of them.Score for the SF! The blind taste test was a great idea.
Your hypothesis is flawed in that the ribs will look different once cooked and cut.I was thinking that also. But when they opened all the smokers earlier in the video they were taking notes of how the ribs looked. So I don't think it was a completely blind taste test simply because the smoke fire already had a different look to the ribs than the rest of them.
