Cons: cheap quality. Has some major defects that affect it's overall performance.
I purchased this smoker and was extremely disappointed with it. I could not even get it fully put together before I decided that it had to go back to HEB. The first issue I had when putting it together was that the bottom shelf would not line up with the holes in the legs. I got three out four bolts in, but there was no way to put the last one in. OK, I can possibly live with that. The next issue was the deal breaker. The firebox lid had a one inch gap on the right hand side of the opening. I looked for a way to possibly fix it but could not find one.
This is a very heavy piece, it weighs about 260 pounds. It will take two men to lift into or onto a truck or flat bed.
Bottom line up front: Steer clear of this smoker. You will very frustrated with the poor quality and defects you will find in it.
