I have had mine for 18 months,30" digital; use with AMPS, we like the pellets. I have smoked cheese, salmon, butts, ribs, CRS, loins, briskets, beef roasts, steaks ,chicken, turkeys (whole and parts). All have turned out great.. 99% of time I use Jeffs rub.
I keep mine in the garage, I have put it on a cart, idea I got from the forums. MES Mods.
