    Pros - Size, controller, multiple setting, temp probe*, clean outs!!!
    Cons - Hopper guard, probe cable.
    Loving the extra room on the LUX.   (Bought as Cabela's Magnum)

    Smoked 3 turkeys (at once) for thanksgiving and for SuperBowl did a 14lb brisket and 8 chicken quarters at the same time. 

    I mostly use the hi-smoke setting (220 deg) and 350 for cooks, but it is nice to have more set points.

    It love that the COVER, side-shelf, bottom shelf, upper cook rack and temp probe are all included in the box. Others make you buy those separately. 

    I added a DLX 24" front folding wire shelf, led light and analog temp gauge in the lid.   (CC needs to start making a 36" shelf.)

    Hopper dumps are getting common, but no one else has ash cleanout.  VERY HANDY!!!

    CONS:  

    Got tired of using the silly little rake so I pulled the hopper guard. ( I hope I am smart enough not to stick my fingers into a running auger. If not, it is only turning at .5 RPM so I should be OK.  )

      The probe cord kinks and breaks easily. Be very careful running it through the small feed hole. Any kinks and it is gone. 

       CC was very nice and replaced my first one at no charge.

    Photos:

     Thanksgiving'16:  3 turkeys, Spatchcocked for maximum rub and smoke intake.  

     Thanksgiving'16: 3 small turkeys stuffed with cornbread dressing roasted and rested to perfection.


    2 hrs  Hi-smoke, 2 hours at 350 stuffed, 1 hour rest.  So moist, clear juice ran out on every bite.   

    SB51: 14 lb brisket  finishing while 8 chicken quarters take us to kickoff.


    6 quarts of TX Smoked Chili ( yes, it won men's chili cook-off at church)

    "Totally worth it!"
    Pros - Ease of use, Temperature control, Cooking space
    Cons - needs access to electrical outlet, needs a means to secure plug when not in use
    Forgive me if I write a lot of drivel, bu this is my first review of a product on this forum:

    I had gotten a 12" A-maze-n tube and used it to smoke cheese last year (on my old grill), and absolutely fell in love with wood pellets.  My neighbors begged me for whatever I was smoking. It was through this that I decided to get a pellet grill.

    I picked this up in May of 2016, and have never been happier with a cooking device.  

    So nice to be able to control the temperature on a grill.  I was sick to death of the awful "hot spots" on my old propane grill. No worries on this one! Very even heating. Did I mention that I love the temperature control?  

    It has so much space I made two racks of ribs, some chicken sausage and 4 ears of corn, with about 1/2 the available space.  

    It's easy to clean out the residual waste from the burnt pellets

    I can empty the hopper and auger without having to burn anything

    It's also really easy to clean and keep clean.

    Using this grill I've made some amazing chicken and steaks, and for the first time, I made ribs that weren't completely burnt on the outside and raw near the bone.  

    Bonus point: My wife loves waking up from a weekend nap to the smell of grill working. Happy wife - Happy life.

    Drawbacks:

    It's an electrical device, and because the cord isn't too long, I need to have a really good extension cord available when I use it.

    I live in an area with extreme weather, so covering it when not in use is important for me.

    The plug is a bit awkward. I need to find a way to secure it when not in use.

    OK, more bragging.   7lb Corned beef point for St Patrick's day.
     
     I smoked a 7 lb point at 350 with Mesquite and Oak for 4 hours before covering 

    Started with 1 can beef broth and 1 beer.   At 2 hours the pan was dry so I added 2 cans chicken broth and 1 more beer
    At 4:00 hours, I added 5 lbs of par boiled fingerling and red potatoes and covered.  
    At 5:00  hours,  added garlic salt, butter, carrots and 8 cabbage quarters.
    At 6:00 hour, pulled and rested.   
    Deeeelish...

    I need an extension cord to operate the grill, so I have it plugged-in to the extension cord and wrap them up together and store them on top of the hopper.  It works.

    I wrap the cord around the chimney or hopper before putting the cover on.

    I wrap the cord in small circles and place it around the smoke stack.
    Love my Camp Chef!!!
