Love my SF but this looks interesting. There's a new grill by Kamado Joe that's a kamado grill that runs on pellets. Super efficient on pellet usage and would be a great option for cold weather smokes. My biggest question is can it produce as good (or good enough) of a smoke profile being so thermally efficient. Need some real world reviews.

I am curious to see what the new Weber Kamado S6 grill is like when they release it. It is a charcoal 24” cooker that could be a great new toy🤓...but then my wife would probable have me committed as I already have 5 Weber units in current service.🥼🚑🏩

It’s a slightly stripped down version of the Weber Summit Charcoal. The Weber Summit Charcoal is an awesome unit. It’s a Komodo and a kettle. They appear to modify the cart a bit and removed the plastic storage bin. Price reduced $300. The stand alone model has a slightly flimsier cart I think and they eliminated the gas assist starter from that unit. It’s a little rebranding.

I was all excited back in the day for a charcoal summit but they lost me at the price point.
I was pretty happy to see the EX6 come in at an expected price point. Even better after the $200 rebate.

I get the price point thing, but they are worth it if you ask me. They do everything the ceramic Komodos can do and more. People see a big kettle but I can assure you they are far more than that. The bigger WSC is equivalent to an XL egg with a stainless table cart. That would cost @ $2500 or more.

$2,000 for a 18 inch circle of grilling space. That is a little pricey.
I’m with you on that ! I love my big green egg and the ceramics but for that price and size i can’t do it . I did call my mother in law and say i found the grill for them though . They love their Traeger but don’t like how it doesn’t get into the 500s or 600s.

So we just did the first cook on this bad boy. I'm actually pretty impressed by it. Put it at 600F for half a hour. Everybody knows how much pellets the SF wil eat at that temp. This one.. looks like nothing was used.. only negative thing for me is that its pretty small. Don't get why they didn't make the big joe as a pellet grill..

It looks great. What did you cook and how was the smoke flavor and ring?

We did burgers and yesterday some steaks. Was pretty good. Doenst use a lot of pellets. Only negative about it for me is the size.. its a lot of money for a small cooking service. If you put a couple hundred extra you can get a yoder😂.
