I don't understand why they don't just put a smaller burner in the unit. That way they can keep the PSI up high enough where they don't have to worry about the wind blowing the flame out. On the other hand, I haven't heard any complaints of this happening even with the new regulator so it might not be an issue anyway. Perhaps they just erred too much on the side of caution.
Can you tell me if your unit came with a cover? I recieved a Walmart GOSM for Christmas and there's a small amount of damage on it. Probably not enough to make me return it, however, both the water pan and the smoker box are puny. I'm afraid I'd have to keep refilling the unit every 45 minutes or so, and since when you include a bigger water pan, a bigger smoker box, and a cover, I think it's worth the extra cost. That, and the Smoke Hollow is heavier and should be a little more efficient. I think I'll just check the unit out before making a decision though.
