Pros: Heavier duty than a Char Griller
Cons: Not a 'life time' smoker. It will wear out.
Smoked for the first time on this smoker this weekend. Held heat well for what it is, and was able to bring to temp and keep it there fairly quickly. The gauge of metal is a bit thin, and the doors don't seal very good, but with a few tweaks, I can see this as worth the $$ spent. As with any smoker like this, I seasoned it and wiped it down with oil before actually cooking on it.
