If they are priced well (doubtful) i'd love to have a steel and insulated version a-la akorn.
If it was equal or more than a BGE, there's no point.
A Weber-built Akorn for under 500 would be amazing and I'd buy one in a heartbeat. It wouldn't hurt their kettle sales OR their WSM sales by much and they would be the new go-to for affordable kamado-style grills.
Damn, now I really want this to be.
