Sorry it took so long to reply, I have used this little thing twice now and so far I would have to say its surprisingly very good for the price.
The first smoke was last Friday in Colorado Springs, CO. Smoked a 10+ lbs pork butt and a pan of Dutches Wicked Good Baked Beans.
I started at 6:45 am, the temp outside was 16F, smoker got right up to 300F, filled the water pan and chip tray with Apple and Maple wood pellets.
At 10 am I added the pan of beans and temp of the smoker was staying pretty steady at 275F. The weather outside had turned snowy and windy, had to
move the truck around to help block the wind but it was chugging right along. I pulled the pork butt a little sooner than I really wanted it had an IT of 192F, at 12:45. But I was hungry and still had to drive back home. The pork pulled a little harder but tasted great. All 10lbs of pork and the pan of beans got demolished and no left overs at all.
Today I smoked to racks of baby back ribs. Started at 8:00 am and ran the temp of the smoker at 250- 275 and pulled the ribs at noon.
Again the ribs tasted great and had a nice smoke ring. I am now in Salt Lake City Utah and the temps outside during todays smoke was 35 at start and 57 at noon. The smoker maintained a steady temp all through the cook. I had I flare up at the start, but put some foil over the bottom rack to catch the drippings, and had no more issues.
I did have to cut the ribs in 1/2 to get them on the smoker, but was able to get 1 rack of ribs on each shelf in the smoker.
The photos are of the first smoke, did not even think of photos today. I will be here with work for about a month and will use this smoker quit a bit so I will try to get more photos and add more of a review later.
