So is the dusty moose better in any way than the Weber Smokey mountain?? I’m trying to understand why the Weber is almost 3 x more expensive?
Do you mean 'is the Weber Smokey Mountain any better than the Dusty Moose?'
Weber has been around for ages, they designed the product which has since been widely copied. They use top notch materials to make a high quality product. If you get the chance to touch and feel a Weber product, then do the same with a 'copy' version, you'll see that there's a vast difference in the quality and feel. The lower the price of the copy, the bigger that difference will be.
Weber Australia also has one of the most outstanding customer service reputations that I've ever heard of. A search of this, or any other Aus BBQ forum, will show a lot of glowing reviews of their after sales service. That level of services is not cheap to maintain though.
At the end of the day, they will both do the same job and turn out great food in the right hands. The difference in price would certainly get you a lot of accessories and ingredients for a great BBQ experience.
Good luck with your decision and welcome aboard.
