Cons: Heat control. Wants to run hot.
I am new to smoking but I find this unit is very east to use. The only draw back is that the unit wants to run to the hot side. I used it on a really windy day and produced some exellent pulled pork. Used it on a windy rainy day to smoke some baby backs....outstanding! The unit was well packed. It was easy to assemble. I like the rotary starter. Just purchased an internal digital thermometer because the external thermometer is not reliable.
