Weber announced that pre-orders are suppose to open up Dec 2nd, 2019 and the units will ship mid January 2020. So for those of you that have plunked down your hard earned money on the new Smokefire Grill, let us know in this thread!

I'm still on the fence! I need a little more convincing. There are not many reviews out yet.

Ex-6 officially ordered via Amazon!

Not exactly sure what this means, but the Amazon listing says "This item will be released on January 25, 2020". Guessing that's the ship date.

Congrats! I'm hoping we might be able to see these grills at Lowes in store next week.

EX6 ordered from Weber. Deciding whether to sell my RecTec RT 680 before or after arrival of the SmokeFire or just keep it, It’s been a workhouse for me over the last 5 years.

Pre-orderd the EX6 from BBQGuys.com. Ordered via Rakuten, they were offering 15% cashback on Cyber Monday. Couldn't pass it up.

Awesome, thank you for your service! Is this your first pellet grill?
Thanks! I've used offset smokers for about 20 years and there's a substantial time investment when using a stick burner that covers the entire process. I bought a gas grill to augment a Weber Kettle, and it eventually replaced the kettles. I'm going to give pellet grilling (smoking) a try to see if it saves time (mostly at the beginning and end hopefully?) and to confirm what Harry Soo says about the end product when he was at Weber for the reveal. But, like the gas grill, it's mostly being able to set a temp, press start, cook, then turn it off. If all goes well, it might replace the offsets as the weekend cooker.

Really liking what I see. My Weber genesis has been the best gasser I've ever had. Hard to pull the trigger on a new unproven product. If it's temp will get 600 then I'll buy. Need some proof. Buddies traegers struggle to keep 375.

I picked up my first PG from Costco last August when they were clearing out the Louisiana Grills LG900. Loved it....at first, but it’s had chronic temp control issues. After the 3rd replacement of the control board and temp sensors, they suggest returning. 🤷‍♂️ So, it’s with great delight that I see Weber has now entered this space. Going to pre-order but thought I’d check if there’s a retailer preference. Was going to do Amazon, but is there any benefit to ordering elsewhere? I’m certain Weber warranty and service will be great, regardless. Cheers.

I ordered specifically from Dickson Bbq in toronto since they included a brush, grill basket and a rib/roast rack if you pre-order from them.
