The Centro looks identical to the MES. It's a very popular smoker on this site. For 50.00$, I'd jump on it right away. It would look cool next to my WSM. Also check out the AMNS as an addon for it.

You're gonna love it, especially come winter! These are very well insulated and make cold weather smoking a breeze!  I've used mine at -30c and the only bad part is running out to check on it / add chips but that is not going to be a problem this winter as I now have an AMNS and just ordered an AMNPS.
