I have owned this smoker for several years now. (Been a Weber grill fan for over 30 years)
Anyway, it is very well made and easy to use. My only recommendation is that you MUST use a meat thermometer and monitor your meat closely, while smoking.
I have had problems, over cooking meat with this smoker, so beware, it may not take as long to cook/smoke your meet as the recipe book advises.
