first impression

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...

Easier than I thought

Pros: Simple to use, Easy to clean, Easy to place food, Stainless Racks

Cons: Cast Iron Smoke Box, Sticky Door, Access to Water Pan & Smoke Box

Well I never thought I would writting a review being such a new smoker but I guess our opinion matters as well.   I purchased this unit because I wanted a smoker but didnt want to deal with tending to a wood fire. I also didnt want to spend to much to start.   Pro's -The unit is very easy to start and the burner provides more than enough heat to get you up and running in no time at all. I found that during the smoking time I barely had the dial turned from the lowest setting. -The unit is large enough that I was able to do 12 slabs of ribs that were fairly large. 3per Rack -Stainless racks make it very easy to clean. -Construction is solid no flimsy parts. -Large Smoke...

Great Smoker

Pros: Easy to use. Easy to control heat. Lots of room.

Cons: Door is prone to sticking, making it difficult to open

I was able to purchase my GrillPro Smoker at Menards in Grand Forks, North Dakota at what I consider a great price.  Although this is my first smoker, it is easy to use and have had considerable success in the short time I have owned this product.   The heat is easy to control and the smoker contains a great deal of room for your favorite cuts of meat etc. I look forward to a long and productive relationship with my new smoker.

Well worth the money. Easy to use.

Pros: Good value. Very simple to use.

Cons: Door doesn't work very well.

I used a Brinkman Smoke-n-Grill for 20 years. I haven't used the GrillPro very much yet, but I liked the idea of opening a door and having everything right there. The door is a bit sticky, the unit needs to be sitting just right to square the door opening. The heat control works good. There seems to be plenty of capacity for producing heat. I like the multilevel racks. Good smoker/cooker all around, IMHO.
