Not actually predicting any new Weber product lines. Just saying it would have been interesting to listen in on the discussion I'm sure they've had.

But just to play devil's advocate? This could be the same climate at Weber as it was just before they starting producing propane grills. Food for thought...

I went to HD today and there was no sign of this cooker there, so I asked. The woman spent 15 minutes looking for it in their system. It isn't there. It isn't on the HD website. It isn't even on the Char-griller web site. Does this thing really exist? The Bigfoot of Komado cookers. :) B

Honestly? My guess is we're WAY ahead of the curve here. A week or three and we'll see them all over. :) but if you see one, snap a pic! Maybe we'll get on "In Search Of..."

Char-Griller web site leaves a Lot to be desired....the only thing I could find Kamado related was the add on's that You can buy for the Akorn. The Model #6520 is what my LOwe's rep. asked about...so it must be in the system somewhere..!! Only time will tell I guess !

The table is a great idea. Even better if they addressed some of the issues many of us owners have had. Competition is a wonderfull thing.

Any news on this? I'm looking to enter the Kamado market. I'm very interest in the AKorn. I currently use a Weber Performer and a Weber Summit gasser. I would absolutly buy a Weber Kamado in a second at almost any price point!

If weber has any plans on a kamado, none of us know about it, and it probably wouldn't go into effect for a long while

I've said this before, but even though I think weber should build a kamado, I seriously don't see that happening.

Look at Weber's line up. They are dependable, long lasting, durable and not the least bit innovative. If you look at Weber's charcoal grills, they are for the most part repackaging the same concept over and over. Except for the GA, their idea of "branching out" is "make it smaller...now make it bigger...ok now put it in a table...now a different table...What?!?! You want me to make it bigger AND put it in a table? No WAY! that's way too much!!!"

I can't see them jumping on the steel kamado bandwagon any time soon.

have seen the chargriller smokers including the acorn smoker at Kroger every year and every year if you are patient enough to wait till late summer they sell them at like 50% off just to get rid of them before winter at least that has been my experience here.I passed up last years model akorn the black one, my neighbor has it and modded it from videos online it runs like a champ they wanted $149.00 or 169.00 they originally wanted 299.00 was in Georgia on vacation so didn't go get it drank on the beach instead

I keep checking at Home Depot, but they don't know a thing about it. It isn't in their database and they have gotten their new shipments of grilling merch. I'm not sure it is going to happen.

I could be mistaken, but i thought the last year's models were only sold at Lowe's and not Home Depot?

Supposedly, this new version with a built in table is made specifically for HD.
