I considered buying the King Kooker, but bought a Meco 5031 which I really like. The reason I didn't buy the king Kooker is I purchased one of there turkey fryers several years ago. The stand was poorly designed and half the screws were missing. I called them and they sent out the wrong ones. After another call and 2 weeks later I had the screw to put there poorly designed stand together.
So... when it was time to get a smoker I just remembered how poor there customer service was. That was 4 or 5 yrs. ago. Maybe things have changed....maybe not.
Good luck with your decision and let us know what you purchased.
Lookn' forward to some q-vue.
