I am not sure that the gen 2 are on display at all Lowes stores and maybe Lkruse has confirmed with the model number at his store that they are but I was in my local store a few weeks ago 3 on display all the first generation from last year been lying there for at least 9 mos. As L said there are no in stock Smokefires at Lowes in my area they are all ship to home not to store and its grill selling season here in the South so the question that needs to be answered is Lowes going to bring them back into stock, I would have assumed down here they would at least have a couple in stock.Lowes used different stock numbers for different versions. That stock number on the ex4 sign matches their Gen 2 description on their site. Should be Gen 2.

You might be right it just seemed strange to me that you can order one for delivery to home but when you put it in the cart they are going to charge you $59 for shipping. They have other pellet grills that can be shipped to home not to store and the shipping was free. When I posted that Pit Boss link last night there were 30 in the store now 29 so they must have sold one.I am almost positive Weber is holding inventory back from big box stores. They want SmokeFires in stores with the upcoming firmware without requiring the customer to upgrade - better end-user experience out of the box. Grilling season in the south, possibly, but the Ground Hog predicted six more weeks of winter, and Texas said, hold my beer, we are doing it all in six days. Seriously though, demand builds in spring and early summer for buying new grills.

Lynn, you need one to complete your collection.
I went to my Lowe's in Terre Haute yesterday, and the SmokeFire is BACK! It was nice to see both models and a half-way decent looking display, including pellets, covers and those drip trays. The price labels clearly showed "GEN II." I hope Weber can get this thing working properly and make it the success that they need.
