After having so many problems with my Brinkman vertical (my first smoker) and then the Master Forge vertical door latch broke. I tried to search for replacement parts but it seems both companies are out of business (I know Brinkman is) or something because there was nothing out there. So I came here and read reviews on the Dyna Glow. I wanted a vertical that was going to hold more meat then the other two because we have a large family and friends cookout . I looked at the vertical without the offset because I didn't think I had the room for the offset, but you all convinced me that the offset was the way to go. I found a great deal on it on Walmart.com and bit the bullet along with the cover. It arrived last Wednesday and it didn't take long for me and hubby to put it together along with the mods I read from owners on the forum. My plan was to season it and try it out today but the rain put a damper on that, so hopefully tomorrow. Qviews when I get her fired up.
