Saw this at Lowe’s today

Fornetto Basso 18” vertical smoker. Looks well built with heavy looking legs, tight locking clamps and high temp moulded seals on access doors. Each section has probe ports and folding handles. Was not able to access the grates and pan or lift the lid as it was displayed up high. Price was $199. On sale now $179.

Interesting how this little smoker pops up every few years. Folks seem to like it, but it is painted, not a ceramic finish. Dings and scratches will rust if not addressed quickly.

Hmm, I'm hitting up Lowe's today after work I might give the ol onceover. Honestly, it's got a lot of the quality of life features that some of the WSM users have done mod's for. Price isn't bad either, and according to their website they have a 22" model. It also says on their site that you can "Add or remove sections to quickly transform into a larger capacity smoker or a convenient charcoal brazier." Kind of makes me wonder if they offer extra sections for sale to increase your capacity. Having a manufacturer part for this option is nice compared to WSM where you have to hunt for a custom provider. Not difficult to find, but an actual branded one is interesting.

If I was in the need for a second vertical style, which I might be in the next 4/5 months, I think I'd definitely take a strong look at this in the 22" model.
