It is a pretty small market. Add to that the idea that the ceramic is supposed to be a multi-tasker, while Weber knows that most Weber owners have several (a charcoal grill, a propane grill, and often a smoker) - why kill the goose?
At $7,499.00, it wouldn't be hard.

Viking used to make one for about 1/2 of that - but that was still way more than the market could bear. I was just betting that if Weber made one out of SS and priced it directly against the BGE, the masses would respond. Weber cast aluminum is a better product that 95% of the SS grills out there - but Joe Public wants SS at $1k.

Just because they could do it doesn't mean they should. It doesn't seem to fit their brand.

I haven't read through all the responses but I believe part of Kamado Joe's reasoning for his response could be the hopes that Weber would buy them. Why else would he recommend that Weber compete with him...???
