Pros: Lots of room for smoking. Even heat,
Cons: Front table is weak. Handles fall apart
All in all, I could not be much happier with my Silver Smoker. I replaced the handles with some solid pear wood about the same diameter as the originals. I replaced the front table with a piece of Corian I had laying around. I put a dutch oven into the opening of the firebox/grill area and it dissipates the heat and spreads the moisture nicely. I have smoked many turkeys, pork butts, cheese, chickens, etc. with this unit. It sits out on my patio year around and has lost some paint but not much. Fathers day, I cooked steaks and burgers. They were perfect! The only thing I would change is the firebox and entrance into the grill area. It would be nice if there were no lip so I could just pull all the ash out the firebox door. I have put a second thermometer in the lid on the other end and there is only 10 degrees difference when the dutch oven is in place otherwise it is more like 25 degrees.
