Awesome grill and smoker
I've had my EX6 for about 6 weeks now and I have reverse seared steak, smoked ribs, chicken and brisket. Every single thing turned out great!! If it lasts several years then I couldn't be happier!!!

Smokefire Is My New Best Friend
I've used mine for over 100 hours. Done briskets, ribs, pork, chicken, sides, as well as reverse seared steaks and roasts. Clean up is easy compared to my Smokey Mountain. I did have a single issue where with the latest software, the computer on the SmokeFire froze up and stalled my cook, but I caught it within 20 minutes to save the cook. Even though that made me nervous for overnight cooks, it's still more predictable than charcoal with about 95% of the smoke flavor. I still have and use my Smokey Mountain, but it's no longer my primary smoker. I've also not touched my Weber Spirit propane grill since buying this, which means that my dad will be getting that soon. Great overall product and I am happy that I went with it.
Staff Response:

Love the EX6
It's big, more cooking surface than I imagined. You should purchase size by how much you grill and slow cook and I'm pretty sure EX6 uses more pallets:) Not a lot of storage-prep space, plan on accessorizing or adjusting your cooking area.

SmokeFire 2 is a success!
Love my new grill. It can do anything I want on it. From low slow smoking to high heat searing. You can get 600+ *F with SmokeFire 2 which is very impressive for a pellet grill. Haven't had any of the issues that plagued the original SmokeFire. In good old Weber fashion they strive for perfection and came pretty close on this one. Only thing I wished for is bigger wheels. Although, the ones on the grill are very strong and do the job, I prefer the big wheels on my Genesis whenever I have to roll it around. With that said, I highly recommend this grill.

Great Smoker and Grill easy to learn and master.
Solid Smoker and Grill. Adds a great amount of flavor with smoke boost. The other reviews citing the need for the front and side tables are not wrong, though it truly depends on how you manage your grill space. The software works most of the time, a few exceptions of remote temp changes not working every time. The Overall setup and use is straight forward and suited for masters and novices alike. I would certainly recommend this smoker, especially to those that read other reviews and understand the advantages and shortcomings of this model. For Weber, I would suggest an API for adding and storing cooking recipes to enhance the adoption and use of the software.

Great Quality
I was a bit hesitant at first having read all of the Gen I problems, but after taking a leap I am impressed. The quality is typical Weber so no issues there. Software is good, smoker reaches temp quickly and holds. Smoked a couple of times and this thing is a breeze to use and food is great.

Expert Review

The Skinny:
  • Our testing experience suggests that Weber has heard (and solved) prior flaws
  • Temperatures ranging 200–600 degrees Fahrenheit help you smoke and sear
  • 22-pound pellet hopper features low-pellet sensors and quick-change chute
  • Weber Connect app makes the grill compatible with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
  • Back-vented barrel design creates high smoke circulation inside grill

In our experiences, the second-gen Weber SmokeFire solves the sorrows of the first.

The Weber SmokeFire aimed to be a one-of-a-kind machine that didn’t behave like any other pellet grill on the market. (Credit where credit is due — it succeeded.) Pellet grills tend to function like BBQ smokers, after all. But when Weber replaced the full-coverage heat baffles with its classic Weber Flavorizer Bars, it designed a pellet grill that, while capable of holding steady smoking temperatures, could also cook with high heat like a more traditional grill. Our original testing pushed the first-generation Weber SmokeFire to its rational limits — cooking immense amounts of meat within its full range of temperature capability while scrutinizing its ash output and grease management.

To speak delicately, the original run had its issues. Weber has tried to address them both publicly and through internal research and development. That’s why we put our very own Chef Tony on the case — while fading natural light and a spinning clock above our expert’s scrutiny of user forums doesn’t exactly make for exciting video footage, our expert spent countless hours researching user experiences and taking notes. Armed with those expectations, he ran this pellet grill through a new round of rigorous examination to stress-test its predecessor’s weakest links. His findings? The Weber SmokeFire Gen 2 made a worthy follow-up.

Quality:

Without any sacrifices in solid construction at this price point, Weber SmokeFire II blew through all our safety testing.

As far as aesthetically pleasing and well-designed pellet grills go, Weber SmokeFire II is a serious contender. We set the mad chef loose with a pair of calipers and an XRF gun — the lid handle, accent trim pieces, side shelves, and Weber Flavorizer Bars all proved to remain constructed from genuine 304 stainless steel. Weber retained aluminized steel in other components; the fire pot’s heat baffle and the interior paneling of the side walls come to mind. Galvanized steel-plating still comprises the cooking grids.

  • Those calipers measured thickness for the Weber SmokeFire’s cooking grids at 6mm (a perfectly fine thickness for a pellet grill), the porcelainized fire box at 16-gauge steel, the porcelainized enamel lid at 12-gauge, and those trademark Flavorizer Bars at 17-gauge. By design, an air gap in the double side walls provides enough insulation to hold those temperatures steady — there were some scattered complaints with air flow apparently getting into the ash system, but we didn’t find any reasonable concerns in that area.

  • Chef Tony measures the cooking grates of the Weber SmokeFire Gen 2 Pellet Grill

On that note, it’s time to address the elephant in the room: the grease management system. Though it’s fantastic that a pellet grill would even offer a pull-out, full-width grease and ash drawer, there were some unfortunate design choices that presented problems with the original model. Chef Tony did not experience these problems with the Weber SmokeFire II’s grease management system. From his extensive testing, the grease management system worked like a dream — he personally witnessed no evidence of sparking, flares, or fires.

Performance:

Following up its already impressive performance, Weber SmokeFire II maintains an eyepopping temperature range while rethinking power and pellet management.

To say Weber SmokeFire II performed admirably here is putting it mildly. While there are some impossibilities in the physics of a thermocouple test on a pellet grill — recall that, by nature, they operate by completely different thermodynamic principles than standard gas and charcoal grills — Chef Tony’s findings fell in line with what he expects to see in this type of cooking environment. At its worst, he saw a disparity of 85 degrees Fahrenheit in one tiny spot; this was on the top-tier, screaming hot searing point of 600 degrees, which is a temperature point nearly unheard of on most pellet grills. (Thanks to the open body design, large air vents, and powerful variable-speed fans, he repeated hit that mark in 20 minutes.) In real-world usage, that sort of disparity isn’t just expected; it’s perfectly acceptable.

  • Speaking of real-world testing, Chef Tony bombarded the grill with wave upon wave of brisket, burgers, steaks, chickens, and enough meat to satisfy an entourage of medieval Vikings. On our test models, here’s what he found as a stand-out: whoever you want fed first, cook their entrees on the right-front quadrant of Weber SmokeFire II. That section of the grill runs hotter than the rest by a noticeable margin. While we won’t call that a feature per se, a little planning ahead can make it one.

  • Cooking burgers on the Weber SmokeFire Gen 2 Pellet Grill

Finally, Weber made a few positive adjustments to the grill’s performance. One recurring concern Chef Tony’s research unearthed was that the previous model allegedly suffered power issues. He intentionally ran every test on the same 40-foot extension cord; from beginning to end, he saw no electrical issues. Furthermore, Weber reworked the angled slope of the pellet hopper. On the higher end at 425–500 degrees, expect 2–2 ½ hours of prime pellet grilling before you have to touch the pellets. On the lower end, he saw that low-and-slow cooks would generally last 8 hours before requiring a pellet check. From his findings, Chef Tony concludes: “I’d say nearly all pellet grillers will be satisfied with these hopper revisions.”

Features:

Weber SmokeFire II keeps its excellent features with quality companion app updates and overall grill redesign.

Weber SmokeFire II still shines in its grilling output with its 22-pound pellet capacity and a rear trap door releases pellets to swap flavors at a whim. This continues to dazzle us. Equally rare for pellet grills is the direct flame access afforded by the main cooking area; with two hanging knobs for accessories and that 304 stainless steel side shelf for prepping food and holding pans, it’s clear Weber had the hands-on multitasker in mind in the design phase. A robust PID controller continues to supervise the DC-powered auger motor and fan (each of which boasting variable speeds). Throw in that pair of leave-in internal temperature probes and an innovative pellet auger design that provides larger cooking fire and higher heat…

In support of the original launch, the Weber Connect companion app released with limited functionality via wireless or Bluetooth connection. Compatible with iOS 12+ and Android 7.0+ and backed with the industry-leading JuneOS, recurring app updates have upped the app’s capabilities — monitor (and now control!) your SmokeFire grill’s temperature remotely, study readings from up to 4 temperature probes, set timers and probe temperature alerts, receive timely and relevant push notifications, and more. Registering a Weber ID provides in-app product and warranty information. Weber plans to roll out in-app recipes, guided cooking programs, and further quality-of-life updates. While we can’t comment on them (SmokeFire didn’t give us these problems), we’ve also heard of firmware algorithm changes to solve aggressive temperature overcorrection.

But we think the feature you’ll love most circles back to the grease management system. Chef Tony put the second-generation Weber SmokeFire through every test available — and his continuous pellet grilling experiences make the apparent faults of the original ash and grease catch a bad dream. While Weber doesn’t run their SmokeFire shipments through us (nor would we ever wish that upon ourselves), the ones we’ve tested proved to have ironed out the kinks from before. Between the assumed redesigns of the power delivery system and full-width pull-out tray, our resident expert Chef Tony expressed confidence in recommending this pellet grill to just about anybody.

When Will My Item Arrive?

Once shipped, items usually arrive within 3–5 business days. If your item or order is large, it may ship via one of our third-party freight carriers, which deliver from semi trucks with lift gates. Freight delivery is much more complicated than standard parcel shipping — you must schedule a drop-off time, be present for the delivery, and move items from the curb to your residence, among other differences. Sound stressful? If you prepare in advance with our guide to freight delivery, it doesn’t have to be.

We strongly encourage reading the entire freight delivery guide, but here’s a quick snapshot of what you need to be ready for when you order a large package:

  • Your freight carrier will call you to schedule a delivery window of about 4–8 hours
  • You’re required to be physically present at the specified delivery location during the scheduled window
  • Freight shipments are carried in semi trucks, which have lift gates to assist with unloading
  • Freight deliveries are dropped off at the curb and no further — not up the driveway, not the porch, not the garage, and most definitely not the backyard — so it’s on you to transport packages to their intended location
  • For an easier time hauling items to your home or backyard, arrange for at least 2 helpers to be on standby during your delivery window
  • You must sign for the shipment to indicate that you’ve accepted the delivery

Again, we recommend reading our entire breakdown of freight delivery so you can become familiar with the process. Trust us when we say that getting caught off guard with the strict requirements of freight delivery can lead to a whole lot of headaches.

Message to our customers: Like all retailers and manufacturers, we’re currently experiencing well-publicized supply-chain issues and steel shortages that have caused some orders to be delayed. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences arising from this situation, and we assure you we’re making every effort to solve these problems with our vendors and logistical partners.

So, why are some orders being affected?
