Pros: Large cooking surface, holds temp well
Cons: Medium-Thin metal, charcoal grate too low, wheels fall off
The wife and daughter bought me this smoker as a gift for father's day.
My model has the full split top with swinging extra rack as opposed to the model shown in the image.
Out of the box it had a couple easily fixed problems.
- Tires fall off when moving occasionally
- Charcoal grate is too low, needs lifting to prevent ash choking
- being the split top model, smoke leaked out the door when closed due to rotisserie holes
after fixing the above issues, I do not have a complaint about this smoker. If you follow thru with all the mods in the "Horizontal Offset Smoker Mods" post on SMF you will have a great home smoker.
