Pros: Hours & Hours & hours of smoke without any bother
Cons: Can't think of any
This thing is so easy to use, and works perfectly. I had other smoke generators, and all of them stop smoking or smoke too much, without constantly having to babysit them. One even said I might have to tap it now & then. It was more like tap it every 10 or 15 minutes, or jam a screwdriver in it to get it going again.
This little A-MAZE-N-SMOKER really is amazing! You just fill it with wood dust, light it, put it in your smoker, and then you can go worry about other things, because this thing will burn for hours, and hours, and hours all by itself. You don't even need a smoker. You could smoke meat with this thing in a cardboard box !
Also as far as cleaning goes, when it cools off, I just tap it against the inside of a bucket to empty it. Then a quick brushing with a little bristle brush (less than 1 minute), or you can throw it in the Dishwasher!
