Has anyone purchased the add on smoker for a Weber gas grill. I am interested in it, but don't know if it is worth the money. Currently I just use a foil pouch.

The Weber smoker add-on does a very good job -- much better than you'll get from a foil pouch. It's definitely worth the money.

Thanks, it will probably be my next investment. Do you use it like you would with a pouch, preheating very high until you see smoke, then turning it down? I guess my main concern is that it doesn't have it's own burner, but am guessing by the previous post it doesn't affect the smoking.

I have one of these on my Genisis Silver and it works very well, The unit sits over the crossover burners that are always on even when the center and rear burners are off. the instructions don't say to soak the chips but to leave them dry, I've done it both ways and both work well. Theyb also make a steam & Smoker, might be only for the Summit. The smoker works great for rotisserie chicken it generates a lot of smoke. Still not like charcoal & chips or chunks.

Do you get a long time for smoke or do your chips eventually catch fire? I have a fire problem, although I read one guy uses the smoker box but still puts foil over it and punches 4 holes to good effect. He felt the slots were still too much air in the box.

I use the little 6X9 pans and put the chips in, thus a smoker... Sorta! :D
