Default The 14.5" Weber Smokey Mountain (Model 711001) appears official

Click the link to Weber's schematics on their website.

http://help.weber.com/schematics/bro...x?model=711001

It shows 2014 as the year on this page.

Was reading this on another site. Apparently it's available overseas.

Let's guess the Amazon price.

I'll say $199.99. (qualifies for free shipping!)

The smart thing to do would be pricing it close enough to a Brinkmann, while keeping it profitable, to allow someone, who otherwise might get the ECB due to price alone, to reconsider...

Exactly. Plus, I'm sure this particular mod and how popular it's become was at least a factor in Weber's decision in marketing the 14.5 again. Price it too high and the folks that might have purchased for convenience's sake will wind up either building the Tamale Joe or giving up entirely.

It appears quite interesting that the 14.5" doesn't have a heat deflector, but includes a grease tray and a grommet between the two cooking grates. (click on view all at the schematic page)

The schematic doesn't specify that the grommet is only for the 14.5", just the WSM, so maybe they will be adding that to all sizes. Another site has a dealer promo picture that also shows this grommet on the 14.5".

I believe the "grease tray" is basically an internal heat deflector. Should serve the same purpose, a double wall between the heat and the outside of the smoker. Plus it'll give a gleaner look.
I'm also under the impression that the grommet is being included in all the WSM models.
As for the usefulness of the 14.5" model? HELL YEAH! I plan on getting one unless the price is ridiculous. I'm hoping for a $199 msrp and a real world street price of $149. The 18.5" can be had pretty regularly at $249, and $349 for the 22.5", so here's hoping.

I also believe that the probe grommet is coming to all WSM sizes.

And the WSJ is readily available on CL for $20 or less.

It would be great for sausages, chuckies, and chicken.
