Medina River Outdoors 66 Backyard Large Smoker/Grill Combo Reviews

RocknBBQ

Thicker metal than Typical COS. Easy to assemble. Requires mods typical of Horizon, OK Joe.

Posted

Pros: Once the mods are in place, it is very consistent and heavier steel likes to hold the temp. Can make fine adjustments with FB and stack vents.

Cons: Required mods: fire basket, Horizon tuning plate, lowered stack to grill, shielded cook chamber from firebox, gaskets on smoker and firebox.

It makes great food. Once the mods are in place, easy to run. Based on what I have read on the forum, this unit is very similar to the OK Joe, or Horizon Offset Horizontal Smokers. Onlyn had it a month, but 36x16 is already too small. When looking at larger COS. I would probably just up the spend to the $1000 range and get one of the professional models. Don't get me wrong, I am having a blast! Money well spent. I am sure the UDS is cheaper and more efficient, the webers are better quality, the ceramics hold great temps, and electric, pellet etc. are set it and forget it. I still think the coolest smokers are the Horizontal Offsets. Just screams smoking meat to me.
