It has some design problems...    Exhaust stack is too small diameter....   the opening between the Fire Box and Cook Chamber appears to be too small...  that is evident from the leakage around the door on the Fire Box....   I can't see what openings are on the FB for temp and smoke control...

Be prepared for several modifications to make the smoker work "properly"...   

1...   Changing the exhaust

2...   Raising up the Fire Box to get better air flow in the smoker...

3...   Maybe adding proper air inlets to the FB...

Does it have proper tuning plates in the Cook Chamber...
Thanks for the feedback. For the price, seems like too many mods. Looking into a different one around the same price. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
