Pros: well made, multi function - best cooking tool on my deck!
Cons: takes a bit of practice to smoke adequately
This is a home run product!
Extremely versatile - it's first and most obvious use is to be a "turkey cooker" as it comes with a basket and it has the overall shape of a turkey fryer..( But that description alone omits it's other talents.)
This thing will give you the best , cleanest, safest - nearly "deep fried" turkey you ever had! It will handle a turkey up to 25 lbs. So - capacity is great. It uses infra-red to cook so the heat distribution is excellent, and the skin will get nice and brown - like a fried turkey. But - NO OIL to have to deal with, buy, clean up after - or dispose of.
It has an on board ignition, via twist knob, and temp adjustment as well. On high - this thing will cook a 6 lb. roasting hen in 45 minutes! On low - you can cook your ribs until they are fall of the bone tender - then lay them on the stainless grill plate - which come swith the SRG - for glazing or finishing.
Ribs, chicken, wings, vegatables.....even breads can be baked in it.!
This is the most multi-talented item I have in my arsenal of outdoor cooking gear. GREAT value!
