Pros: Modestly priced
Cons: Impossible to clean, elements burn out quickly
I do a lot of Smoking and BBQing and own expensive to moderately priced equipment. I am about to throw my 2 year old Meco in the dumpster. It is the worst piece of BBQ equipment I have ever purchased. It is impossible to clean and in two years, I have replaced a burned out electrical heating element twice. Never again. What is worse is, I hardly used the grill as I have others I use more often. The Meco was only used a few times each of two years when wanting to do simple grilling for only one or two people. I wrote Meco an e-mail telling them of my feelings and how dissappointed I was with their product. I got a reply saying thanks for my input. It's too bad, as they are an American company making the product in the US which I highly favor. It is just too bad they make such a poorly designed and manufactured product. I would never again buy another one of their products. Do yourself a favor and buy anything but one of these.
