    Diverter changed again....

    Just a friendly FYI for the group, especially if you are planning on getting a WSCG: Apparently, Weber has changed the Diverter Plate again. The new one are being reported as slightly smaller, with NO holes. I guess the R&D people are still trying to get this perfected. So if you got the Original, you got hinged plate. If you got the Kamado version, you got the Holes, and if you got a recent Kamado, you could get the new solid plate.

    EDIT: Weber Customer Service was called, and one of the people that got the Solid Plate was told that they were shipped the *wrong* plate, and are now getting one with Holes in it.

    That one probably works better than the one with holes...and is cheaper to produce.
    Even if it isn’t better, it’s probably cheaper to produce.

    FWIW, I have the original hinged type.


      I don’t know what to think on this. I kinda suspect they’ve sold more Kamados than expected and started throwing in the Master-Touch diffuser plates because they are there?


        Weber says the solid plate is for their Master Touch Premium model. Where did you get the above image of the solid plate in a Weber Kamado?


          FOLLOW UP: Several members on the FB WSCG forum just received their S6/E6 grills, and they came with that solid plate diverter.
          One of them contacted Weber Support today, and Customer Service, said "No, that is the wrong one. We are sending you one with the Holes in it."

          So for those of you with the plate with holes in it (mine is that way as well) do you wrap it in foil during cooks to keep it clean? if so, do you then punch the holes back out of the foil? I've let mine go au naturale, but can see it getting build up on it over time...

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

        The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
