I knew it was almost gone but thought it might make it through one more cook. This morning when I put wood in the cast iron skillet that goes on top of the trivet and slid it in over the fire, the bottom fell out. It was a good little propane/wood chunks cooker but it's time to go back to pellet cooking I think. Years ago I had a USA made Traeger but I had to leave it in Georgia when we moved to Idaho. I think I'll get a Silverbac Alpha. Looks like a lot for the money.
