Default Is it true Weber is re-launching the 14.5 WSM in 2014?

14.5 used to be called the 1880.

It would be great for tailgates.

With those with a homemade mini or a old 14.5.. How much can you hold on one of these?

I have heard it to be true from someone I trust as a source. Time will tell.

I wonder too, I didn't get that info. All I know is I'm getting one right away if it does happen.

I need one like a hole in the head, but there will be one in the BBQ shed.

I can fit an 8 lb chicken in mine. It will hold a 6 lb brisket on one grate. Or a bunch of ABTs or moinks and cook them to a turn.

It does not do racks of ribs well unless you don;t mind coiling or cutting them. I don't know offhand what size butt it will hole, but should be at least 10 lb.

It is my most versatile cooker. If Weber brings back the 14.5 WSM (AKA the 1880) I will have one!

A fair and appropriate price would be $149.

I'd guess (and this is totally a guess) that it would be at minimum $199, but likely $249, since the 1880 was only $20 less than the 18" when they were made in the early 80's.

To me 249 is too expensive. I would just spring for a 18.5 at that.

If they could make it 149.99 they will sell a ton them, then it turn to get people to upgrade once or twice to the 18 and 22.
