Pros: Easy to assemble, well made
Cons: Needs some mods to improve usage, racks not too wide
I received this smoker as a gift - it's the 30" model. I read in the forums here about some mods to improve functionality and I did them: installed a base and casters, added some insulation around the exterior, made a windshield for the base to protect the burner, installed a gasket around the door openings, replaced the regulator with one that includes a needle valve, and bought a Maverick 732 remote thermometer. I also added a cast iron skillet to hold the wood chips.
This smoker works quite well. I produces a nice thin blue smoke that yields really tasty smoked food. It holds quite a bit of meat, although it's not sufficiently wide to hold an entire rack of St. Louis ribs unless they are cut up. The four racks are spaced such that I can have a Boston butt or two on each rack with just enough room.
I really like this little smoker, and aside from the width issue, the only other criticism I have is that, even with the needle valve, I have a hard time maintaining a constant 225 degrees temp. My only use of it has been in the winter, though, so it may hold temps more consistently in warmer weather.
Overall, I a very happy with this as an entry level smoker.
