    Pros - Cheap, small, and did I say cheap?
    Cons - Needs just a couple of mods to make it work well (Still under $100)
    I got this smoker to get started smoking on the cheap.  To be honest you really need to do two things to this smoker (at a minimum) to make it a decent smoker.  

    1. get a grate for the charcoal and elevate it from the bottom of the charcoal pan.  
    I used the charcoal grate from my Weber "Smokey Joe" it fit perfectly, I added three
    equal sized rocks to keep it about 4 inches from the bottom of the pan and "Wow' the
    fire burns much better.

    2. Add a thermometer to the lid, $8 at Lowes or Home Depot, the built-in temperature

    "Gage" is pretty useless.
     

    That's it and I've had many successful runs of TriTip, I did do a six hour pork shoulder

    smoke and it was labor intensive trying to keep the temperature constant, which is near

    impossible to do.  This is not a "Set it and forget it" smoker, it requires frequent observation.

    But for the money it's a sweet way to get into meat smoking.

    Pros - Easy to assemble, cooks great brisket
    Cons - wind sensitive
    I have been using one of these for over 25 years. It is my go to smoker for many occasions. I learned a long time ago that the wind plays into cooking with any outdoor cooker. The area of Texas where I live seems to have wind almost constantly and when it gets to about 15-20 mph it would suck the heat and smoke out the bottom of this smoker. I acquired a 55 gallon drum and cut it right at one of the rings around the side and removed the top. Now when it gets windy I just sit the drum ring around the smoker. It fits perfectly and stops any problems from the wind. I have run a constant temp of 225 for better than 10 hours.

    Pros - Price & Good to learn on.
    Cons - Takes some work & Mods before its usable
    Great entry level smoker. Takes some practice to keep the temps right. Works great after the Mods suggested on line. I like it, but will upgrade to a Weber in future.

    what is the easiest this to start with on a smoker? It will be my first time using a smoker. Would love to do Ribs or chicken...any easy recipes out there? And about how long do I need to plan for the smoking process to last (having company for dinner tomorrow)
    Any help is appreciated - thanks!
