Stopped in at the local Weber dealer today, got to talking about WSM. He says they have revised the legs on the standard one. Also they are going to market a 22.5" version. A Weber UDS, probably pretty pricey.

So simple, yet so difficult.

I'd guess that Weber's research has shown that developing a 22.5" bullet will either or both:
- not sell for the price they need to market to get the same mark up as the 18.5"
- cut sales of the 18.5" bullet that it drops the overall profit margin of their smokers

Let's see what the rack space difference would be between the two:
To get the area of a circle take the radius squared and multiply by 3.14.
18.5" - 9.25x9.25x3.14x2=537.33 sq inches
22.5" - 11.25x11.25x3.14x2=794.81 sq inches

That's 257.48 more sq inches of rack space - nearly one more full rack compared to the current 18.5" bullet. It seems as if Weber's suggested retail price for the bullet is $249, which is 46 cents per sq inch. Using the same price per sq inch, would Q'ers be willing to spend $365 retail for the larger model? I don't know, but if so, it may cut into Q'ers buying only one rather than two bullets which could still drop the overall profit margin.

How about a 25" diameter Super Bullet? :biggrin: That's over 980 sq inches on two racks! :eek:

I dont expect Weber ever to remodel the WSM. They are just too busy kissing their own butts.

Anyway, in about 4 weeks the first units of the probbq excel 20 should arrive and i expect them to be a very good, if not better alternative to the WSM.

They have 20" grate diameter, a nice charcoal basket, temperature gauge and use the stackers, so you can use it as a small kettle grill or smoker with up to 4 grates.

No guarantees, but find out what UCLAs average score is and what they average giving up a game against tournament qualifying teams. Do the same for the Hilltoppers. Add the 4 numbers up and divide by 2.

If that amount is over the over/under score, take the over
If that amount is under the over/under score, then take the under

Then do this for all the remaining hoops games (NIT and NCAA) and let me know the percentage of games it worked so I can see if this is a good idea for me to use this formula next year. :biggrin:

I really don't think it's a matter of them not taking advantage of the market, I think it's more of a lack of demand/canabilizing their current 18.5" sales. UDS's are no secret to those wishing for a larger bullet. Until the 55 gallon barrel disappears, I don't think the market demand is there.

??? Same logic could apply to the One Touch Gold grill in the 18 1/2" and
22 1/2" sizes.

Right now the price differential is only about $20 between the two so not sure if the $/sq.in. formula is applicable either. Need more info on tooling and mfg. costs, etc. to figure margins. I see where your going though.

They don't seem to be too responsive to wants on the WSM line. Thermometer, charcoal grate revisions, lift handles on the second grate and so forth. On that note I put a cooking grate from my Brinkmann on top the the WSM charcoal grate (at 90 deg.). Perfect.

I can't afford to upgrade right now anyways. :mad:

I have to partially disagree with this logic. If weber would make the WSM the same size as the kettle they would only need to make one grate size and only one lid. There are probably other things that I'm not mentioning. This would free-up valuable manufacturing space and reduced inventory. These offset costs might make the price real close to what it is now.

Except the WSM lid is not the same as a kettle lid. The WSM lid is the same size and shape as the WSM charcoal bowl, much taller than a kettle lid to provide greater clearence for a turkey or BCC.

I'd love to see a 22 1/2 inch WSM, but I agree that it is most likely just a rumor. Ian, I like the Pro-Q 20" and would probably buy one if I didn't already have two WSMs. Frankly, the 20" diameter isn't a big enough space gain over the WSM to make me switch. If it were priced the same as the WSM I would be tempted,however.

Don Marco

Over here its actually 10 % cheaper than the WSM, but thats only because Weber is only in for the yuppie market and prices are 2.5-3 times as high as in the USA despite the good exchange rate for us. :eek:
I think the Pro-Q is gonna kick Weber in the nuts quite a bit in europe.

The difference in size doesnt sound like an awful lot, but if you measure a bit you see its larger than you expect.

The WSM Grate has 44 cm (17 3/8 ") diameter , the Excel 50 cm (20 ") and the large kettle grills (and UDS) have a 54,5 cm (21,5 ") Grate.

If the only difference was size, I would have to agree with you on the price, but the ProQ's have loads more features built in... Handles, Temp Gauge, stackability, probe eyelets and their design makes them a lot easier to use.

If you had been around the forums a few years you would understand. Rumors had been circulating about a 22" WSM for a few years before it was finally released. There were even so called "release dates" that never happened, and even people who emailed/talked to the good folks at Weber who said they had absolutely no plans to make a 22" WSM.

Should I just smoke him to a 190 internal temperature?

I was thinking about maybe spatchcocking him.

I'll check to see if Donnie has a Godzilla "how to" on youtube...

I bet he does a 3 part rub with Butt Glitter...

I wonder what song he'll use... OH WAIT! GODZILLA!

Should I brine Godzilla?

Maybe I'll wrap him in foil after 22 hrs...

Nah, no foil... that's a crutch...

Lets see... at 1-1/2 hrs per pound... He MIGHT be done before Thanksgiving if I start now...

What kind of mop goes good with Godzilla?

Maybe I'll just glaze him on the gasser at the end and forget the mop..

OH JEEZE!?! Should I just use straight K bricks or lump? I heard the bricks would give an off taste, but it IS Godzilla...

I'll use lump I think.. If I crush the big pieces down a bit it should work...

How many bags will it take for a 27 day smoke... dang...

I'll NEVER be able to brine that sucker! I wonder if he is "enhanced"...

Butterball Godzilla! That's the ticket!

My head hurts...

Oh I know! I'll just get a big beer can!

Oh KEGGER!

What kind of rub would you suggest for Godzilla?
Plowboys of course. The MSG really enhances mutant creatures.

Should I just smoke him to a 190 internal temperature?
Godzilla meat is like chicken, so use that as a guideline.

I was thinking about maybe spatchcocking him.
Great idea! You can borrow my shears.

In case he doesn't, you can maybe use this as a guideline...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCgWJLnvywQ

I'm thinking 6 parts would be better. Godzilla is big enough to have even chunkier ingredients layered on top than normal.

I wonder what song he'll use... OH WAIT! GODZILLA!
Duh!

Should I brine Godzilla?
No, he is a saltwater creature already from the briny deep.

Maybe I'll wrap him in foil after 22 hrs...
I would use foil to shield the breast meat while waiting for the thighs to get done.

Nah, no foil... that's a crutch...
Ha-ha! Yeah, you're right.

Lets see... at 1-1/2 hrs per pound... He MIGHT be done before Thanksgiving if I start now...
I hope this gets to you in time then!:shock:

What kind of mop goes good with Godzilla?
No mop, but using thirdeyes lemon trick under the skin might be a good idea.

Maybe I'll just glaze him on the gasser at the end and forget the mop..
I think Weber is also working on a giant Performer.

OH JEEZE!?! Should I just use straight K bricks or lump? I heard the bricks would give an off taste, but it IS Godzilla...
Godzilla is immune to normal fire. You need to use a stronger fule source. Think along the lines of enriched uranium.

I'll use lump I think.. If I crush the big pieces down a bit it should work...
See above.

How many bags will it take for a 27 day smoke... dang...
Judging from my college days, a pound would be a safe bet. so however big your baggies are will dictate how many it will take to store that pound of stuff.

I'll NEVER be able to brine that sucker! I wonder if he is "enhanced"...
Of course he's enhanced, he a mutant lizard with super powers!

Butterball Godzilla! That's the ticket!
It's easiest to brush melted butter on it than to apply a ball of butter and hope it melts just right.

My head hurts...
Ummm....well....

Oh I know! I'll just get a big beer can!
That's a great idea!

Oh KEGGER!
Brilliant!
