New addition to the weber 2012 range. Despite that web site advertising it as in stock I'm advised it won't be available til April/May

Nice, is it built around a new style kettle or is the hinged lid part of the Pizza Oven accessory? Checked with Weber and my contact wasn't too keen on commenting, wouldn't even comment if it was their's

Yes it is theirs. I've seen pictures of it on Facebook at use at the Grill Academy so don't know why your contact is being so coy. The whole unit sits on top of a standard 57cm kettle.

That's good then, sure it won't be cheap though!! Who knows why they were coy, probably my dodgy description!!

Found this short video, which shows it in action:



Although I'm not entirely sure what the advantage of this would be over simply placing a pizza stone in the kettle, which is how I've cooked dozens of decent pizzas in the past. The lid is very shallow - presumably that it deliberate. to concentrate the heat?

Think I have just asnwered my own question. Not obvious from the pictures or video, but the lid doesn't meet the body at the front, it is shaped to provided a slot to slide pizzas in and out on a peel. This now makes sense, as you won't lose the heat every time you place or remove a pizza. However, it does mean that the video - showing the woman tending to the pizza with the lid up - is pants.

Having said that, I am sure it is going to cost lots of money (and Weber will also try to sell you a peel to go with it!), so I think I will stick to my method.

Yeah I've assumed the advantage was the shallow lid directing more heat onto the pizza. I've got one of these on order but am told they won't be available over here til July
