So I’m not allowed to say anything negative?
I said I was very happy with it as a smoker. I said Weber has always been a solid company and I’ve always liked their products.
Then I said I was a bit disappointed at some of the construction- and compared it to their other products, not another brand.
Then I said I had a connectivity issue.
Then I said I thought their grease management was kind of lacking. Unlike the early horror stories, where people let the drains plug and did stupid stuff like cook pork shoulders without a drip pan, I cleaned the inside of the cooker and assumed a small amount of grease left in the drip tray -where it‘s supposed to be- would be fine. It wasn’t, but how was I supposed to know that? Isn’t that what a drip tray is for?
But I’m trolling?
If you can give your opinion then so can I.
I simply don’t believe your story. I have cooked on mine for over a year and intentionally not cleaned it for long periods. Also done briskets and butts without drip pans followed by steaks at over 500. No issues at all. Maybe I’m wrong. If I am wrong then you are right and you can have that satisfaction. I believe the temp fluctuations part and that’s all. Next time you have flames shooting out the bottom drawer after cooking ribs do me a favor and snap a quick photo. It’s hard for me to imagine any discernible grease actually in the tray from a single rack of lean ribs”shiners”. I would have to see it to believe it. Therefore, I dismiss it. I will try to keep an open mind regarding your future cooks and the corresponding photos. Cheers!
