weber summit

Postby preacher boy » Mon May 07, 2018 5:37 pm

I am new to this site and not sure how yet to navigate and find old posts. Actually,pretty new to bbq period. I have been looking to purchase a charcoal smoker and have been looking at the weber summit. It seems a bit expensive,but maybe worth the money. Does anyone have experience with this unit ? If so, what are the pros and cons ? Any info on it and other charcoal grills would be appreciated.

Will be smoking mostly brisket, ribs, and turkeys, but at times I would maybe like to do steaks and links etc.

Thanks in advance...

Welcome to the forum. I’m sure somebody will be along shortly to answer some of your questions.

Good luck with your new cooker!

Big Welcome, The Weber Summit is nice but for the same money you can get a nice Weber kettle plus a Weber Smokey Mountain and still have some serious change left over. My two cents.
How bout some more beans Mr.Taggert? I'd say you've had enough!

Thanks for the welcome and the input. So the weber smokey mountain can do pretty much the same as the summit ? I have a master built electric, but it only reaches 275degree and certain things it does not work well. Not that I will be cooking Pizza or anything but would like to reach some higher temps.Also about the weber summit verses smokey mountain,Is the ratio of charcoal usage during a long cook similar ?

I mainly use my WSM for cooking competion chicken at 350. This is achieved by removing the water pan. If you are wanting to grill burgers or steaks at higher temps, I would use a regular kettle at least the 22 model or going a bit bigger to the 26 model. I have a 22 inch kettle and have cooked everything but a brisket on it.The Summitt is nice but I just can't see paying that much for it. I would also look at purchasing a set of grill grates for the kettle to make the best steaks ever. Also look at the weber forumn for additional info.

Jumping off the tracks, but take a look at the PK360 grill. Excellent indirect grilling/smoking and can get up to 400-500 deg easily.
