Guys should my dome be getting that shiney black? I figured it would be matte black? Is that normal?

Have a Weber Genesis and a WSM (Berger82, after seeing your post I'm sorry to admit it's been a few months since I used it)

That said, itching for a pellet smoker - set it and forget it. I'm in SE PA and cook outdoors year round. So.. Pros/Cons, brand recommendations. I was looking forward to the Weber Smokefire but disappointed by the stumble out of the gate even though Harry Soo has been doing damage control. Roughly 1K budget, maybe a bit more but not Yoder $$ territory.

Dont worry your dome will get all kinds of gross over time.

Splatter, ash, soot

Its an Egg enjoy!!!. If something gets too weird, just do a high temp burn and that will kill off any bad stuff. I dont think even @JoyfulNoise knows any bacteria that will survive a 900 degree high temp burn.

You can always use a crumped up ball of aluminum foil like a brush up there.

Can't comment on the smokefire but I have the Rec Tec RT-340 and so loving it for smoking. My Neighbor has the RT-700 and uses his about 4 times a week:cheers:

Check out Grilla Grills. They have a few different options for Pellet grills. The things are made like tanks and customer service is top notch. Hopefully you'd never need it, but with electronics on a grill it's inevitable something will come up. No wifi yet, but it's supposed to be available in the fall and they'll have a deal on just the controller to replace the current ones at that time.

I'm rooting for RecTec grills since they're made here in Evans, Georgia..about 5 minutes away from me. Lots of teaching online withthem, and BBQ weekend classes. 🥩🍔🍗🍤🌭

Thanks for all the suggestions! Now to binge YouTube reviews (some of which are so dull and/or self promoting - don't forget to click that Subscribe button🤯) oh and dragging the baggy sleeves of their sweatshirts through the food 🤣

Heck, I don’t care if you cook it over a shopping cart, anything BBQ’d outdoors tastes better -

View attachment 151432

..... at least they took the kid out of the shopping cart before cooking the steaks :rolleyes:
That’s a friggin IKEA carriage!!! I hate those carriages. You need to see a chiropractor when you get home cause all 4 wheels turn!! :pth:
