I have a Cookshack Smoker (small model). The tag on the back of the smoker said it was manufactured in 1992 and I purchased it in 1993. This has been a very good smoker for me. The smoker cooks very evenly and is easy to keep at the correct temp thoughtout the smoking process. I've never had any problems with it but it is small and I have outgrown the small size of this smoker. I still use it but only for small batches of smoked meat. The Cookshack is an expensive smoker but after having the smoker about 14 years and having no problems with it--you get what you pay for.
I would include a picture but I'm a new member and have not figured that out quite yet.
