Today I am attempting my very first smoke. I purchased the TMLE from the home Depot and used my 10% military discount. Was pretty straight forward to assemble. Myself and a 10 yr old tossed it together in just over an hour. The only place that seems to leak smoke is from the cooking chamber door. I can live with that. The temp gauge that came with the unit is reading about 265 and my weber digital hovering at 240. This week am hoping to get my tuning plates and fire box. Good this is they will only cost 1 case of soda. Wish me luck yall.
