Hope you're all going to have a great summer! I'm a personal chef in the Chicago area and I was at the NRA show this last weekend and met the owner/CEO of Cookshack Stuart Powell and struck a great deal on a SM 160 that he was using at the show. The greatest thing about having the NRA show in Chicago is that vender's will strike a deal so they don't have to ship product back home. I have been using the the Masterbuilt 40" for about 5 years and the thing is being held together with tape and bubblegum but it still works. I have built a reputation for my ribs and pulled pork and made the move on this unit because I wanted a commercial smoker. After I saw the SM066 that was what I was going to get but the cost was $1800 and Stuart and I worked out a deal for the SM160 with the cold smoke kit, rib rack, seafood rack and shipping. So this is my first post with this forum and the smoker is coming this week and I thought that I would start a thread on it and post my experiences.
