Yes, I have ate several different cuts and types of meat from one of these and it is great. Ribs turn out great, the meat falls off the bone and this Thanksgiving my brother in law made a Turkey that was better than any cooked or deep fried Turkey I have ever had. They are easy to use and the cook times are right on...unless the temp is below 50 or if it is very windy. However a lot of people say that this isn't smoking b/c it is actually a convection oven. Put if you have tried the food cook on one of these you will not be disappointed. You put wood in the bottom and the wood will produce smoke so you still get a good smoke flavor and a smoke ring. Me and my brother in law both own one and we use them more than our traditional smokers.
