      Yes, in a Star Trekky-sorta way ...

    I have not, but I am very curious about it.

      Interesting. Weber says it doesn’t exist and it’s only for-sale from 2 places I have never heard of. Either vapor ware or brand new.
      I sure do not need or want it but if it allows more people to use and love the Weber Kettle Im all for it.

        I could see it as an alternative for the vortex in hot/fast cooking, but for low and slow, a Slow and Sear or a few fire bricks to bank the coals to one side is the typical method used.

          Yes - I prefer the charcoal off to the side, but I suppose you could put smaller items around the edge. Might be good for ribs?

          For those unfamiliar with it, Abt is a wonderful appliance and other stuff store in Glenview, IL. In my adulthood, they’ve grown from a dinky little storefront to a sprawling campus.

        A Vortex with a deflector plate.

              It could have been bigger. Looks like an 18” cooking grate in there.

            At this point, I'm not too tempted. Can't see the advantage over my vortex and SnS.
