What gets me is that Weber is still selling these. I'm still seeing dealers carrying these SmokeFires and advertising them as the best thing since sliced bread.

There has not been a single announcement by Weber that I've seen anywhere and they're still taking peoples $1200 left and right for a product that's obviously not fit. I guess that's up to the buyer, but as a brand you would think they would stand behind their product and make sure its fit to cook on as advertised.

They need to do a serious recall and get this product right.

That's mostly a cardboard fire from the looks of it, see all the flat burned up pieces ?

Wow. I didn't know the new Weber pellet grill was this bad. I immediately thought I should short Weber stock if this new important product was this bad. I learned tonight Weber is private company so no public stock.

Have one in a box that will very likely go back. Think I am sold on the JB prime. 899, 36” wifi, 550°, front and side shelf included. Can buy 2 upper racks, pizza oven attachment, cover for the same prize as an Ex6.

My local Lowes just put them out, and after looking at it, I just laughed. I could see how the feed ramp was not angled enough and for some reason the defuser just didnt look right. I really didnt look any closer than that.
Yes I am a charcoal man, and always have been, but, I do look at the "New & Improved" and this aint it. Sad too because Weber has always been a quality product.
I just guess we will see how they respond to the returns and complaints, hopefully they will stand up and get it right.

In my opinion even if most of these problems were corrected I still don't think this is a $1200 grill. The build quality just does not do it for me.

So there was mention of a PG1000 earlier. I've got one, and also have a GMG Jim Bowie and Davey Crockett. After I got the PG1000 I rarely fire my GMG's unless I need extra cooking space. The Cookshack is far superior in the indirect contest. With that said, the indirect side is only 18" square, so it's not the biggest that's for sure. That would be my only complaint; if they made that bigger I'd be happy. With it being insulated it barely burns pellets. Cooking at 275° I can run it 12 hours and still have half my pellets left from a full fill of 25#.

If I didn't need to do Pizzas on the grill, I'd get rid of the GMG JB in a heartbeat.
