All I have ever smoked with is electric and propane. Lately I am getting an urge to smoke with "natural fire" and have been going to the stores and looking at what is all available. I notice quite a few of SMF members use this grill and my local Menard's has the grill on sale for a $100 and the firebox for $50, this seems to be a fairly good deal. I would like to hear other memberâ€™s opinions on them, likes and dislikes, would you purchase one again or is there another model I should be looking at? I like the cast iron grates, and the barrel of it seems to be constructed well. Another question I have on this and I have been doing SMF and Google searches but can't find much, is this grill with firebox added just for using charcoal or can it be a stick burner also? I canâ€™t even find the manufacturers websiteâ€¦.. Are the frames of these pretty solid, the one on display seemed wobbly but the stores help may not have assembled it correctly or just not tightened everything right? If this ends up being what I choose to try I will be reading up on all the modification current SMF members have made and doing most of them prior to using it. Thanks in advance for everyone's input and sorry for the 150 questions !!!
