Pros: Temp. Control, Loading, Digital Controls
Cons: No smoke ring
Started years and years ago with a $50 water smoker, then had a Bradley Smoker and now a Cookshack. I just don't know how you can smoke your favorite meats any easier than with these units.
The digital thermometer is right on the money and a 90 degree day or a windy, snowy 20 degree doesn't make it any difference, due to the outstanding insulation.
If you have used other smokers, you will be tempted to use to many wood chunks with the Cookshack. Follow the guide about ounces of wood, per pounds of meat before you make any adjustments based on what you think it will take.
Bottom Line: I love it.
