Welcome DandDdad!

To be truthful, I have never owned one, but It looks like the one my former neighbor had, and his had a serial number tag on it as well.  Dunno for certain, but he told me the Chinese ones didn't have a serial number plate on it.

His was pretty rugged, and took a lot of cooking!

Lots of friendly folks here at SMF, vast amounts of expertise and help if needed.

Good luck!
Good afternoon and welcome from East Texas, great to have you here, After you get it ready to go, post some pictures, if you need help just ask. Looking forward to seeing your first smoke.
