The Pella: A Weber Kettle Pellet Adapter by Spider Grills, via @Kickstarter

Anybody see this ? Looks interesting to me.

    Looks cool, but as I've been awaiting delivery for the past 5 years for my first (and last) project backing, I cannot in good conscience pledge any money for anything else.

    It's "Smokin Gal", not "Smoking Al".

    A plug in weber kettle... seems like they may be trying to complicate something that should be simple.

    The Spider Grills peeps had a thread on reddit yesterday talking about that gizmo. Pretty cool idea and a neat approach to hooking it into the kettle without having to mod the kettle in any way.

    Pretty sweet intro price but they wouldn't say what they expect to set the actual retail price at after the Kickstarter campaign is over - some were guessing maybe $350.

    I've backed a couple dozen projects (no interest in this one tho) and I guess I have been lucky as I have always gotten what was offered. A few projects were overdue by more than a year or so but they all eventually delivered. Only had one project deliver early and that was the Fireboard.

    I wish them well as it is a pretty clever device.

    So for about the cost of a Weber Smokey Mtn you can (potentially) buy something that turns your kettle into a Smokey Mtn? Neat idea but seems like a waste to me.

    How long can you smoke on a smoky mtn before having to add more wood?

    This, they say, can give you 12 + hrs.

  • As cheap as pellet grills are getting, don’t see the value there. Might as well buy a cheap Traeger tailgater and keep your kettle for fast hot cooks.

    Generally I get around 12 hours depending on temps and protein amount. My egg is still much better at long smokes though. Like I said neat idea just unnecessary with the quality and price of smokers out these days. The auto temp control is nice but even then we have those already too.

    The thing connects/disconnects from the kettle very quickly so it's not as if you are losing normal use of your kettle.
