You don't get an offset smoker for under $100.00 and think that it is going to be the best of the best, or even the best for that matter. What you should expect is a small smoker/grill that you can cook enough food for about 4-8 people. If you are using it for a smoker, understand that this isn't a gas smoker or electric smoker, and that it isn't the biggest smoker. You aren't going to smoke an entire pig on here. It takes time and attention to smoke slowly.
Downsides...the paint comes off. Not really a big deal because all you will need to do is buy some spray paint. And it isn't like it just peels completely off of the grill. It chips in some places. More cosmetic than anything.
Clean up isn't as easy as it could be. You will want a small dust pan or hand broom to get the coals.
Up side...for the price, this is a perfect smoker! It retains heat as well as any side smoker will. It is sturdy and will stand up to whatever you can fit in the pit. The side table is perfect for the few items you will need out like a mop, bbq tools, and sause.
Overall, I love this smoker. It is perfect for me and my and the few friends we have over.
After following the instructions, I used 20 pre-fueled briquettes to start the fire. I recommend using a blow torch to light any coal - it's much safer and less toxic than burning newspaper or cardboard to star t a fire, but I digress. After around 15 minutes, I started another small fire in the smoker box using pre-fueled briquettes.
The grill maintained a temperature of 250 degrees with the butterfly and smoker valves open one quarter. I added 3 pieces of oak chunks to the main part of the grill on top of the 20 coals; then one chunk of mesquite on top of the 4 coals in the smoker box.
The marinated chicken came out great and took around 45 minutes to reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees.
I'm not sure why other reviewers seemed to have problems with controlling or maintaining temperature.
When I was done cooking, I opened both the butterfly and smoker valves to full and the grill temperature jumped to just over 400 degrees. The next morning when I swept out the coals, everything was DUST. I've never seen this happen with any of my charcoal grills in the past because there are usually 3-4 large chunks of unburned coals or wood.
This is an incredibly efficient grill with a decent amount of surface area for smoking or grilling.
I smoked a bird (5lb chicken) in less than 4 hours. I had smoked two Boston Butts (Combined weight of around 14lbs), in less than 6 hours. A Pernil of about 5 lbs in about 4 hours. All of the meat had got to the desired and recommended temperatures. And all of the meat is fall-off-the-bone delicious!
I also use it to grill burgers, dogs, wings, and oh yes...fish. But, all of my fellow Grill Chefs, Beware! The barrel is a lot shallower than that of a regular charcoal grill. That can make the heat, burn the meat. I used it on wings one evening, and almost lost the whole bunch, because of the fire. I had to take them off and adjust the coals to where they were more dispersed and choke the flames.
Heck, other than that and the metal gauge being thinner than expected, I give this product two thumbs up.
Have fun, and hurry up....Summer is half over!
The instructions recommend lighting an initial fire to clean off toxins and chemicals from interior cooking area. I appreciated the reccomendation to coat everything with olive oil first.
All greased up and shiny I built the initial fire in the firebox. I stayed close and monitored the fire and temp.
The chemical odor and smoke that came off was horrific. I am really thankful to take the extra step before throwing my food in there. Very toxic smelling.
But the finish on the firebox blistered and melted after 40 mins. For a $200 smoker my expectations weren't high to begin with. I was definitely expecting some shortcomings. But this really caught me by surprise. It looks absolutely ridiculous now.
