I watched that a few weeks ago . It's a good video . Interesting enough to watch the whole thing . He steps right over the " grease fire issue " for sure . At this point I have no worries about any of it . I use a drip tray in all my cookers , except my Genesis 310 , or when I grill on the 22 . If you don't keep the Genesis clean you will have a fire . I've had the 22 " kettle catch drippings on fire also . Not a worry on the kettle really , but the gas or pellet grill where you are still feeding the fire can be a disaster . No question about that .Best of luck with the new Toy. The following is a Gen 2 review after a disappointing test of the Gen1. I questioned the guy about addressing every fix but the Grease Fire issue. He replied that Weber fixed that as well. Looking forward to your thoughts...JJ
Seems simple . No words really . None you can say here anyway . I thought for sure they would be metric . Good for a change . I have a full tap and die set .I've read of several instances of different threading. Makes no sense.
That's not a bug ChopSaw, that's a feature--self-locking threads!...They aren't wrong , just bad...
All went well . I will admit , I had to refer to the directions a couple times .the key is not to wake up on the garage floor
Heck if you like that , you might like this too .a person with their own tap and die set.
No, they are legit blazing fires at 225. I have had a Gen 1 EX 4 since last July. I had issues with the auger and that was replaced with the new version. No issues from that in a while now. However, I have always used drip pans and had no problems until recently. Now embers from the firepot fly into the drip pan and start a fire. The last one took about 30 minutes to finally go out. There was so much smoke, my neighbor came by to ask if something was on fire. I am going to try using drip pans with lids and cut a slit into them to see if that stops the issue. I really want to love this grill because when the cook goes smoothly, the food is amazing.I think some people are calling flareups during high temp grilling a grease fire.
I am just repeating what Harry said in his video. They are doing something right because Harry said the SmokeFire gave him the best result from any pellet smoker.I think if it were that easy no one would use a chimney.
