I was talking to an aquiantence yesterday (Wall Mart) about smokers and that I was going to get the Char Broil Akorn with really good recommendations from a forum I belonged to (Smoke Ring) this coming spring.
He smiled and said that maybe I should wait a bit, that Weber" was coming out with a Kamado type grill !!
He wouldn't say any more even though I tried to press him, but seemed genuinely familiar with the Akorn and the "Smoke Ring"!
I just backed off with any more questions.

So, now I am wondering. Has anyone else heard anything about Weber doing this?

Changeling, I called Webers customer service and according to them they have no intentions of releasing such a cooker.

I would be really surprised if they did as the bullet (in 2 sizes) is quite successful for them and sought after by many. Shocked

Why would he be secretive about a kamado grill from Weber? Is this highly classified information?

I asked them the same question once about a 22 1/2 in WSM. They said the same thing.

Weber is an odd duck.....

I've gotten info from them about old stuff, but even that was semi-vague........can't get them to tell you what year they discontinued what color kettle for instance..... Twisted Evil
Have to figure that kind of thing out from old brochures....

The new stuff they're fairly secretive about as cookers of that size / variety are actually a fairly competitive market
& they guard their ideas & patents very closely, including lawsuits.... Shocked

Another related example is: I've run into several dealers here in town that will no longer carry them 'cause Weber won't allow for discounting hardly ever......
they know they have a good product & act accordingly.......

If you guys go take a look at TVWB youll find a couple threads in their forum confirming that Weber is going to produce a insulated grill. Thread says their going to put it on the market next month. Weber is gonna re-revolutionize outdoor cooking again with several new appliances and accessories this year.

I still can't imagine why they'd be so secretive about it. Seems silly to me.
