Good smoker after a few modifications. Not really insulated, but double wall steel. Design mostly for hot smoking.To get smoke at temps below 180 I use dry sawdust in pan put directly on heat coil. Box is also under vented causing moisture and creosote dripping so I drilled a 1 1/2 inch vent with damper in upper right corner. Problem solved ! For cold smoke I use Amaz. smoke gen on bottom rack.
Analog numbers have changed and quite a few diff models but mine is over 3 years old, covered and stored outside when not in use and no problems with electronics yet. When you can get a box this cheap you can't be afraid to fiddle with it to get it up to your specs, because you couldn't build one out of a trash can for $99.
