Pros: Size, Cost and Ease of Use
Cons: Crappy Thermometer on Door, Leaks Smoke (not a serious issue) Light weight metal constuction.
I'm going into my third season of use with the Big Block. Great smoker for the price. Pretty easy to use. Does require some tweaking to get the temp set just right. Love the HUGH cast iron chip box. Love the four racks with five position in the smoker. Lends itself well to optional improvements (see the section on propane smokers from the forum for an endless list of potential projects and mods) but works just fine without any modifications.
As long as your willing to use digital thermometers to monitor the internal and meat temps you can't go wrong with this smoker as a choice for a propane powered unit. Get the BIG BLOCK and never look back! The best deal for under $200.00 you can find.
