Pros: Insulated, Spacious, wood chip access, easy to use
Cons: none yet
I bought this recently so I could still smoke during the colder months. My charcoal smoker is good for the summer time but not when there is any breeze. It has no insulation. So for 175 I bought this on Amazon. It arrived and i seasoned it up exactly as directed. MAN did it smell AMAZING!!!! I haven't smelled anything great like this in months. So right after seasoning I cleaned it up and set in some Canadian Bacon I had curing. MMMM Came out WAY better than my charcoal smoker. AND the best part is, it was like 5 degrees outside and it smoked like a champ. I watched it the whole time and it ticked right up and just worked. I love it!
Now on a side note. I do plan on buying the cold smoke kit for bacon. I also plan on doing the AMNPS for long night time smokes and I plan on a remote thermometer setup.
Just because it is much more efficient for me to be smoking and getting the info on a side device. I can wrench on my jeep while this guy smokes nice and slow without me doing anything other than enjoying it when it is done!!!!!
