The only three issues I ran into were.
1. Lid handle design... Had to change half way through the build.
2. CG issue with the smoker (too light on the front), going to beef up and lengthen tongue.
3. Basket is too tall making charcoal hard to load.
I gave smoked with it once and held temp great pretty much on its own.
Feel free to ask questions or ask for any pics to help your build.
