    Pros - Dual temp probes, easy clean up, ability to sear
    Cons - poor seal on the door and major temp swings
    I just got my WW SG24 a week ago. I picked it specifically for the addition of the sear box. I wanted the ability to slow cook a steak to a perfect mid-rare then sear it. My first use was doing just that for a prime strip and it was one of the best steaks I've ever eaten. My issues with the smoker began to show on my next use which was a 15hr smoke on a brisket. I used a thermotemp wireless thermometer to monitor the smokebox temp and found wild swings. Set on 225 gave me temp swings anywhere from 190 to 260. From what I've read, this seems to be normal for this smoker. I am still happy with my purchase and would recommend this but I will likely end up forking out more cash to upgrade the control unit.

    Pros - Work correctly right out of the box. Quality is very good.
    Cons - Screws on end plates that one needs to remove to install the Sear box were too tight from the factory. Impact drill was needed to break loose.
    I called Camp Chef about the too tight screws and they said they hadn't heard that complaint before my call. I was finally able to borrow a neighbors small vise grips that would fit behind the frame. Camp Chef said they would be happy to replace the complete grill, but I had already fully assembled it and really didn't want to break it down for shipping and assemble a new one. I have made about 15 or so cooks with it so far and all have been successful. The Sear Box has been used to sear some sous vide steaks and works perfectly for that. I would not have any problem recommending this brand/model to anybody.

    Pros - First and foremost the sear station and then the dump on the burn pot is the bomb. Also like the ability to easily dump pellets if changing to a different flavor smoke. Lots of stainless and a handy access hole for the temperature probes.
    Cons - Haven't found one yet.
    I absolutely love this thing. Like all pellet smokers, the amount of smoke flavor isn't very bold but I resolve that with the A-Maze-N smoker maze and a combination of pellets and wood chips. Having the ability to score my meat is awesome, we also sear vegetables and have grilled some seafood very successfully. As far as pellet smokers go, I think this one has more bells and whistles. I have no regrets.

    I just ordered a CC Wodwind with the Sidekick and got a free CC cover for it. Should get it by this Monday even though I ordered it only two days ago!! Amazing!
    The grill will be sitting outside through rain and snow and wanted to know the quality of the cover if it's good enough for sitting outside.

    This pellet grill and smoker comes equipped some of the most ingenious controls and dual sensors to help in temperature adjustment and even distribution of heat. This grill is easy to install, it just takes a matter of minutes and it’s up and working.

    The true benefit with a pellet grill is taste. Pellet Grills infuse your food with a smoky, delicious flavor. Low temp, high temp options provide a wide range of cooking options that make Smoke Pro grills versatile out of the box.

    The clean-up affair is exceedingly easy; you don’t have to pull the whole device apart in order to empty the ash cup. It’s trouble-free especially when you want to change the kind of wood that you are using. The grill heats up well and fast, you don’t have to wait too long to start the roasting process.

    I have the SE with a few upgraded parts and all the other accesories will fit the SE. I love my cooker because it makes grilling and smoking so easy. I have cooked everything from 10 minutes biscuits to pulled pork for 17 hours. I have cooked on mine for hours and ran hundreds of pounds of pellets and Absolutely no cons at this point. This cooker will do it all and even do it while you are sleeping or gone to the store.
