The Lowe's link shows them as "currently unavailable." I want one, and will gladly pay sixty bucks for one. I am confused by the lid hoop, with a bottom vent. It doesn't make sense for a traveling Smokey Joe.

I have to wonder if Weber is just sticking their toes in the water.

Can this thing be used to add another cooking level to a regular WSM?

Looks like it'll be called a Jumbo Joe Electrum.. Electrum being a naturally occurring alloy of gold and silver. I just looked it up, didn't actually know that. Not a good name, doesn't really roll off the tongue.

If it truly is 18.5", a 30 gallon drum should fit right in for a slightly taller 18.5" WSM. Maybe 3 cooking grates!

Would have to sturdy up the legs for that though.

very cool indeed I am fighting off the urge to buy one. About converting it to a smoker (and I know I am going to get it for this) what would be the difference between that and an 18" smokey mountain? I just don't see the difference, though it may be cheaper to convert this than buy a 18" wsm.

Now how do I justify buying this to the wife............

That's the size drum I used to make a midi UDS - 18.5" lid fits perfectly. These drums are hard to find, but I finally found a new one from zorotools.com for $60 (free shipping).

Putting this out there because i know brethren will be jumping to make WSM clones once this hits the stores!

Now that I say this, i wonder if that would eat into 18.5" WSM sales? It would be cheaper, for one thing.

Two, please. One to cook with, and the other for storage.

awesome, as a camper, Im always frustrated by the lack of cooking space on a 14.5. was thinking about just bringing a foil pan and a grate and going commando instead of bringing a grill you have to make room for and put in a garbage bag
