I just bought one on Saturday. I have been reading about them, talking to people about them, and also seeing comments about them. I was first introduced to them from the founder of this web site. I was new to smoking, and my wife bought me a propane one. I have since gotten other smokers and I love them all. I have 4 smokers, not to mention the other grills I have that I use smoke boxes in to add flavor. I love it. I got the 4-Rack one. I enjoy the features that it offers and the freedom that it allows. Like previous comments, with the holidays coming up, I want to set it and forget it. Go make memories and visit. You will love it, but be warned.....You have started down a dark and slippery path my friend, you will never go back.....smoking is a way life.....but every one around you gets to enjoy it..LOL Best wishes and have fun!! Great purchase.
