Pros: price, quality and space
Cons: no temperature gauge
Purchased at Academy in Austin Texas. had some paint chipping on the firebox (very minimal) and was able to get 10% off of the $399.00 price tag. Got some header flame paint (2200 degrees) for $8.00 and presto, problem solved. Drilled a 1" hole with a hole saw and installed a 3" Old Country BBQ at brisket level (where it should be) without any problems. Does have a few areas where smoke exits, like in 2 corners of the cooking chamber and firebox, but again, a good gasket sealer should solve this.
