I don’t see many reviews of the smoker I just purchased so I’ll give one in hopes it may help others. This Smokehouse is actually a great smoker build. The indirect heat from th bottom based firebox is a neat design. Almost no chance for char/burn from imcorrect placement of tuning plates used in offsets. The water pan on this thing is huge. It holds 3-4 gallons of water and helps with the heat/smoke flow to the outer edges of cooking chamber. It gets to a rolling boil above 225 and does a great job of regulating temp. Did a brisket and didn’t have to fill it but once. The cooking racks are large and the anti tip tabs are great. I think i can fit 12-18 pork roasts if i needed to. I know i can do 12 decent sized Boston butts after putting this brisket on. The smoking chamber has a good seal. I did see some leakage along the bottom of the door, but, nothing significant. And it was only during low heat heavy smoke applications. Otherwise the only smoke was out of stacks. The fire box is large and holds a ton of ash. I’ll clean the ash out over the weekend but it shouldn’t be difficult. The actual heat tray is just as large as the cooking greats with 5 rows of 3 slits cut in it. I didn’t have any problem producing heat but would’ve preferred a heavier expanded metal grate. It would be impossible to run charcoal on a long smoke. Too much area in that box. I used one split every 45 minutes or so at lower temps <190. For temps >190 more than one split will be required. It eats up wood but is easy regulate temp with dampener. The two stacks are huge. I left both of them fully open the entire time. Not sure how effective they are when closed. When heat gets cranked up the firebox door can be difficult to turn the lock due to metal shrinkage due to high heat but a quarter turn is just as good as a full turn. The casters are nice but full sized wheels with casters would have been better to move around yards to get to backyard for most people. They do work well though. The Smokehouse has a small foot print but is 6’ tall and ways around 400 lbs. Getting it transported and in place took a little effort but it wasn’t too bad.
