Pros: accurate thermometer, relatively easy to use, fairly easy to clean
Cons: a little tricky to put the ash catcher on for assembly, thermometer doesnt allow for cold smoking
i recently bought a weber to use as a smoker as well as a grill, and i was not disappointed!! unlike the previous grill i got from Wal mart, this one is of much sturdier design and was packaged well for shipping. it came out undamaged and spotless with an extra part for when i messed up (i skipped a step in the instructions, and had to destroy the part to fix the issue) so even though i had an accident with it, it is a very stable platform that will perform almost whatever task you could use a grill for.
