I haven't posted in a while because I have been waiting for my new smoker to arrive. I knew it was backordered, but worth the wait. I got excited yesterday when my new smoker arrived via FedEx from Bass Pro. Once I looked at the box and the shipping label, I found out it was the wrong one. Bummer.....I ordered the Brinkmann Deluxe Cimarron and they shipped the Brinkmann regular Cimarron. The Deluxe is basically the same smoker with a propane burner on the right side and a propane log lighter in the firebox. I contacted Bass Pro and after an eternity trying to make them understand what happened, they agreed to ship me another smoker (hopefully the right one) and I will have to return this one. The regular Cimarron is a good smoker, but I expect to get what I paid for and what I chose from their web page. Now I still have to wait before I can try my "expertise" at preparing some good food. Sorry, just venting a little.
