Weber is coming out with a “water” pan that will sit under the S.F. grates.

Looks like Weber is coming out with a pan and rack to sit below the grate on the SmokeFire.

Interesting. I sometimes sit small pans inbreeding flavorizer bars if doing cooking fattier meats. Today did pulled pork and didn’t use one. Most of the grease went in the ash/grease pan but still some in the barrel. Easy to scrape into the pan.

I just lay a couple half or a full size foil pan in there between the grid and flavorizer bars. Reduces the mess and I’m lazy. I see they are marketing your ability to add moisture and improve smoke adhesion which is likely a real result. I would need two and a 6 would need three of them I’d think.

Not surprising. It was in the original batch of accessories that was leaked a few months ago. Good to see it in detail. I wonder if the rest of the accessories are hidden on the site as well.

Really looking forward to the front and side shelves. Also, there are screw zerts in the bottom portion of the legs which indicates they have a bottom shelf that will add storage and bolster the leg strength when moving the grill around.

More stuff is popping up on the site. I waste a lot of money on dumb stuff, can’t wait to get that cutting board.

Sorry to hear this. Since the updates (fixes for existing problems) I have not had a single issue. Is your firmware current?

Brad, are you running an Android or an iPhone? Androids have problems with the updates. Others have had to have assistance from iPhone friends.

The cutting board is on the website now listed as “coming soon” as well. Note they are also showing their front shelf and a glimpse of the left side shelf in one of the marketing photo. Hoping all these accessories are available soon. I’m sure the supply chain has been dramatically disrupted.

Yeah, the left side table that will be out in the future might have storage integrated into it. You just see part of the left side table in the photo I posted above.

id really like to see a lower level shelf as well. I think that would tie the legs together better and make the entire chassis more stable and durable. There are zeros on each leg which is an obvious indicator that there was plans for one at some point.
