Pros: well built, easy to use
Cons: instructions to put together are quite lacking! Door shuts very hard also.
I am hopeful that this will be a smoker I can use for years to come and that I will learn how to use it correctly. On setting Low (being the lowest flame you can get from the burner) The temp seemed to stay around 225 pretty consistently on about a 65 degree day with little to no wind. Once deciphering of pictures to complete construction was complete (some frustration with poor instructions, they seemed to put so much care into the manual overall but really could have made the process so much simpler) I was happy with the overall look and feel of completed smoker. Not sure if I trust the temp gauge in the door as I have to push so hard to close it, I think it may have knocked the temp gauge out of commission.
