Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bonk Terrible box, terrible customer service
I have a gas grill. I followed the instruction exactly. It produced no smoke. I waited double the time to see if smoke would come... and no smoke. I called customer service. He stated that this is a universal model and should work by putting it on the top grate of grill. It does not work that way though. I tried placing it on the grate in multiple places, various times. The guy was being arrogant and saying it does work and oh well. He said take it back to the store. I asked him so you guys are not at fault for selling a product that doesn't work what so ever. He said I don't know what to tell you. I'm no longer buying Weber products.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tucker Poor quality
I expected this smoker box to be of better quality than the lesser priced alternatives, but it wasn't. The box warped after the first use. It performs the task that it is supposed to, but the quality has a lot to be desired.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TAS Bad rivets
When I first got the smoker, the rivet was already broken before it was pulled out of the box. I had to buy a screw and nut to fix the problem. Too bad this box was made in China out of cheap materials. It would have been better made in the USA

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by David Not Satisfied So Far
I just bought this smoker box, and echo the comments of some other commentators:
1. Odd rivet / spindles with a lot of extra play in them attaches lid to the box. I guess they build in this much play to avoid warping & binding up during heating.
(I cooked a pork tenderloin low & slow at about 240-250℉. My grill is a Weber Genesis Gold Model C from 2004, with three side-to-side burners. I just used one of the two grates and placed the smoke boxes directly on top of the Flavorizer Bars. If the grate is slid back and forth on its tracks, the smoke boxes both fit neatly under the grate while resting on the Flavorizer Bars. The applewood chips caught on fire, even though I had only one burner (the front one) turned on. The chips had only been soaked a small amount of time, perhaps a half hour.)
2. Despite #1., above, the box / lid warped, I guess because it is (thinner) stainless steel, as opposed to my Brinkmann cast iron smoker box. So I had a difficult time opening up the warped lid of the HOT Weber smoke box to add more chips to replace the ones that caught on fire, while the chips in the Brinkmann smoke box, soaked the same amount of time, hardly smoked at all! The Brinkmann cast iron box was positioned with its length over front burner, while the Weber stainless steel box was positioned with its short side over the front burner, in order to avoid the chips catching on fire and keep the box from getting too hot.
3. It was an odd, frustrating smoking experience. I am not without barbecue skills, and I smoked this pork tenderloin two days ago, and haven't been back to the grill to inspect the Weber box now and see if it has returned to its original shape and can be filled easily with more wood chips.
Summary: This box may get too hot too easily. It calls for well-soaked chips, several hours or overnight. And you may not be able to refill the box conveniently once you've started cooking.
Would not recommend this product yet.

Turn any LP grill into a smoker with this nifty Weber Accessory. Works as you would expect a product from Weber to work.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AZDUB1 Good, but could be better
Surprised that after first use, it already got discolored. Also, I used a bunch of wood chips and soaked them for more than 30 mins, but despite that, didn't really achieve a 'smokey' flavor on our ribs. Not sure why or how.
