Default WSM 14.5 Price

I just read this which mentions a suggested retail price of $219 USD for the WSM 14.5. I was really hoping it would be $199 or less. I am going to have to think twice now if I really need it.

I'm guessing Sparky's info is right. The $219 was MSRP.

Everyone has a line somewhere for what they think something is worth. OP's happens to be at $200. Once you cross the threshold of what you feel is "reasonable", I'd say you are right to take a step back and reconsider.

Default Weber 14.5

I'm just wondering if they are not late to the party. Seems as if majority of folks list a WSM Mini in their cooker line up.

You can't expect them to sell it for the same price as a kettle...

I guess it's easy for me to say, I got my 18.5 WSM used from a guy on my competition team for $200. I know he only practiced on it probably 10 times before I bought it, he went bigger

I already have what amounts to a virtual 22.5 WSM with a Performer table attached to boot. (CL performer plus the Cajun Bandit conversion kit) that cost me about 250 for both plus shipping for the CB. Then there's the Tamale Joe DIY option too. As much as I like the idea of the 14.5, I'm not sure if it will actually sell at 200 ~ 220 in the numbers Weber obviously hopes for. Most I think will be in the "Well, it's definitely CUTE, but..." camp.
Weber did pull this model from production once before, after all.

At $149 or less it probably would sell well, but at $199, not so sure. I have less than $100 in my mini and I have 3 damper vents in bottom just like wsm, charcoal ring (made from 10" bottomless ss cake pan), water pan, 2 grates, and grommets for the temp probes. Another $5 for a can of black spray paint and I have the new one.

Where is you buy the damper vents?
