Model 3.5
« on: January 30, 2017, 01:28:42 PM »
I saw a Facebook post about a new Model 3.5.

It's supposed to bridge the gap between the 3 and 4.

Tony, how long has this one been on your patio? ;)

In August of last year, this was posted on the main site. Besides the 3.5 look for a model 5 in the future.

Very interesting. Lots of money, though. If I am going to spend that much, I think I'd just go with the 4D.

But, I can see where this one will appeal to a large enough audience to make it a decent seller.

Someone needs to mention to the webmaster that the 3.5D description is incorrectly the same as the 3D...

I read the same stats as Larry. Its the 42 pounds of meat. The dimensions appear to be correct but for an average viewer it would be confusing.
My tools currently include the SI #2 with an Auber, Grill Dome, Solaire 27", Holland Grill (Companion) & Weber (Smokey Joe). The Companion & SJ are primarily used for tailgating. David from Roswell,GA -Happy smoking!

Might require some explanation on how one could buy a whole additional 3 for the price of the extra .5.

And you cant put on a cart as per the site.   Good point on almost double price for analog vs digital 3.5

Sorry about the confusion on the short description.  I fixed the issue now.  Also since the casters and posts are different than the rest of the models, it won't fit on the Smokin-It carts and stands.

Thanks

Might require some explanation on how one could buy a whole additional 3 for the price of the extra .5.

This is a great point.

I am not sure I would be willing to pay an extra $465 over a #3D for just 8" more of height, when for $1,065 more than a #3D I could have almost 4" more of width and 15" more of height with a #4D.

Some more stats:

VOLUME
#3D - 6,600
#3.5D - 9,240
#4D - 14,341

STEEL - I don't know a whole lot about the different grades of steel, but noticed this as a difference
#3D & #3.5D - 18 gauge, 201 stainless steel
#4D - 18 gauge, 304 stainless steel

I am guessing that there are going to be some people who this size is just perfect for. But, I do agree that it seems like a pretty steep price increase over the #3D and even more when you compare against the analog #3 at $534.99.

Regardless it is great to see Steve pushing the envelope and bringing new products to the market.
