    "Makes some amazing smoked food"
    Pros - Easy to use, thermometer accurate, smokes well at low 150 deg temp, nice handles to carry, door handles stays cool
    Cons - cumbersome to carry, drip pan comes out too easily and located on bottom of unit, temp adjustments take time
    I've owned two smokers. This one does a GREAT JOB for a lower end priced electric smoker. I've created some amazing smoked food in this smoker. I would recommend getting this smoker if you want to spend under $150. Great smoker for starting out and experimenting. I like mine a lot.

    Pros - Went together easily. Seems well built. Got it for a great price.
    My review will have to be added to as I figure out how to use it. Just bought this smoker at my local Grocery Outlet. I found it sitting under a table hidden away and priced at only $80. I looked it up and they seem to sell usually for right around $150, so I figured I might as well try it out. For that price, how far wrong can you go?

    I was very easy to put together. I liked the idea of the legs on it right off since it saves the back and makes it easier to look inside for how things are going. I am about to light it up to do the seasoning suggested before I try it out for the first time.

    I've never owned a smoke, but have borrowed a friend's 'Lil Chief to smoke some King salmon I caught last summer. So I am excited to try it out with my own smoker this year.

    Update: August 24, 2011--I'm following a salmon recipe found on this website. Setting the temp on my smoker at about 150 degrees, I have noted that the wood chips are not smoking. I did soak them. So I am concerned about this issue right now. The chips did fine when I smoked a leg of lamb at 250 degrees last week.

    Pros - very cheap to operate, easy to clean, easy on the wallet, makes great food
    Cons - wish I would have gotten the 40" for more cooking area
    [​IMG]Bought this at Bass Pro Shop and I love it.  I have already smoked 4 chuck roasts for pulled beef, whole chickens and chicken quarters and spare ribs.  Everything has come out very delicious.  The only reason I would want the 40" model, would be so I dont have to bend the ribs. (they wont lay flat).

    This is so much easier than a charcoal smoker, and so much cheaper to operate than a propane or charcoal smoker it isn't even funny.  The only problem here is all the money you save in operation costs, get spent on more meat to smoke.  [​IMG]

    I see this is an older post, but was wondering if anybody has come across that the liquid in the waterbowl doesnt seem to evaporate maybe its just me but was curious. I also was wondering if anyones chips just burn and not turn into ash? Thanks guys keep on smoking brothers

    Awesome and informative post!!!! Helped me a lot. I've just ordered an A-Maze-N pellet smoker & pellets and will order the PID soon.  Thanks for ALL of the info!

    Thanks for the great review and recommendation of the auber PID. I knew there must have been something like that to add. My AMAZEN Pellet smoker is in the mail and I will probably get that PID.

    I picked up the floor model of this at Home Depot for $129, I had a $50 giftcard so it was a no brainer.

    "How does the smoke exit if there is no vent? Or is there a vent that I can't see?"
    There is a vent on the back top right of the unit. It's a small hole.
    I recently got this unit as a gift and have smoked 2 pork shoulders and overall I'm happy with it, but I'm still looking at upgrading in a year or two.
