This is REALLY DANGEROUS and a FIRE HAZARD!!!
Imagine sitting in your backyard relaxing and then you look over and your meat smoker is a ball of orange flames and the paint is burning off in THICK BLACK TOXIC SMOKE
Well...it happened to us on the EIGHTH TIME of using this smoker it CAUGHT ON FIRE. At least I was sitting there to stop the fire.
It seems that the sheetmetal floor of the unit gets hot and buckles down and then the pipe connection between the propane valve and the burner opens and leaks propane and the propane catches the unit on fire.
THIS IS A HORRIBLE DESIGN AND A SAFETY HAZARD and thankfully my children did not get burned.
Of course the unit is out of their weak 90 day warranty.
