edit....i have replaced the crappy magnetic strips and latches with a window lock which i got from HD. cost 2.75 and it works great. provides a nice seal when you close the door. almost no smoke is escaping now. charbroil should replace those crappy magnetic latches with what i am using and you will solve that problem with hardly any cost and cheaper than the magnetic latches. the smoker is performing great and the food....GREAT!
edit....i have also added a small handle to the wood chip box so that i can easily open it and add some more chips quickly without loosing alot of heat. cost was less than 3.00 so by adding the window lock and wood chip handle for 6.00 i now have a pretty good setup for a relative cheap price and producing some great results!
Problem #1 - The electric burner does not get the chip tray hot enough to get the chips to smoke, even when using dry chips.
Problem #2 - The only way to check the chip tray is to open then door, and drop the internal temperature
Problem #3 - An the biggest issue and the reason I returned the smoker is that it could not maintain an even temperature. Even after everything should have stabilized (after an hour), the internal temperature would vary by 40 Deg. With a recording digital thermometer it was easy to see that this smoker can not maintain an even temperature.
The only good thing I can say (and the reason it get's two stars instead of one), is that the phone support people were easy to contact and helpful. They told me that I should expect a 10 deg variation and that I must have a defective burner or control unit. I received replacement components in about a week. Unfortunately, the new parts didn't solve the problem so I had to return the unit.
Pros: great price for simple to use, well-made product, double walled and insulated, built-in temp gauge.
Cons: poor door latch system (a must fix before relying on it during use), needs access for temp probe without running wire through the door (working mod for that).
