Pros: Affordable, Easy to use for beginner, Comes with grill racks for offset to enable grilling when not smoking.
Cons: Leaks a little around the doors of the cooker.
Even though this is a COS living out here on Guam with warm temperature year around it does a good job of holding temp. Able to use charcoal or all sticks. Requires a couple mods for even heat distribution across the cooking chamber. Overall all good value and would recommend for anyone starting out.
