I just got my new smoker from Costco. It was a snap to assemble and I'm seasoning it now. I'm planning on my first smoke being a whole chicken tomorrow.

I adjusted the temperature gauge with some boiling water before assembly. It was easy to maintain 225 to 250 degrees during the 2 hour seasoning and a box full of oak Jack Daniels bourbon barrel chips lasted the whole 2 hours. At the end I set it on high and got it up to 350 degrees, I think I can crisp the shin on the chicken right in the smoker.

So far, so good...I'm happy with my first smoker purchase.

Congrats on the new smoker. Personally I smoke poultry at 325 or so the whole smoke
