Pros: Do it all grill, great for biginners
Cons: almost too short hose for propane tank
I'm a charcoal guy who wanted to get into smoking. Even though I cook on charcoal I wanted to have a propane grill for small quick cooks like hot dogs. So when I bought a house that had room for a big grill it didn't make sense to spend money on a propane grill, while still always using my Weber, and then spend more money on a big smoker. Plus that's a lot of equipment in the back yard.
This Oklahoma Joe gave me everything I wanted and with great quality too. I can still cook over charcoal, use the propane to cook hot dogs quickly after work, and use the smoker to learn how to smoke. I highly recommend this to someone who wants a do everything grill. If we're talking about smoking: the smoke chamber is smaller than a normal smoker. It did however hold a brisket flat with no problem. For someone who is beginning to smoke, and not planning on feeding more than their family and/or friends, the size won't be an issue. If we're talking about charcoal or propane grilling: there is a very nice cook space on both sides.
I definitely recommend this grill.
