The controls of this unit are not quite as "intuitive" as the manual would suggest. First thing you need to know is that you MUST set either a time or a target meat temperature in order to run this machine - you can't just set the temp and walk away. This isn't really a big deal, but because I didn't realize this my first cook in this machine ended up getting delayed because I didn't realize for almost an hour that it wasn't actually on. This problem is compounded by the display which is both illegible in daylight and somewhat confusing - I had thought it would display current temp and target temp, and sometimes it did but other times it did not. I might need to play with it a bit more to really understand how to get the information I need, but either way it's not a big deal; once you get the hang of it, it's pretty straight forward.
The remote that comes with the deluxe model is yet another problematic control. My biggest problem with it is that the connection is intermittent - sometimes I get three "bars" sometimes none, and I'm only maybe 10 feet away with a wall in between. If the remote can't connect over these relatively short distances, it's pretty much worthless, since the point of a remote is to monitor from somewhere other than standing next to the smoker itself. My unit might be defective though so I'm going to contact CB to see if this can be resolved. The other problem with the remote is again the lack of intuitive controls - the remote "on" button is the same button that is used to actually turn on and off the smoker, so at least once while trying to get the remote to "connect" I ended up turning off the smoker itself. Luckily I realized this quickly and the cook was not interrupted, but it's something to watch out for. Finally, sometimes the remote would just display gibberish (see pic) probably because of a bad connection, but either way it's not helpful.
The meat thermometer is one of the most surprising upsides to this machine. I've had mixed experiences with thermometers that are actually in the oven, so I tend to "spot read" temps instead. This one however stayed accurate throughout the cook and could be trusted to be read either on the remote or on the machine, though AFAIK the temp of the meat can only be seen when using the temp-cook mode, not the timer mode, unless you have the remote. In other words, if you're doing a timed-cook, the unit itself does not display the temperature of the meat inside, only the temperature of the oven, even if you have the meat-probe inserted. If you have the remote though, this will display the meat-probe temperature even on a timed-cook, so that's one advantage of the remote. If you can get it to connect.
There are four racks that come with this cooker, and each one measures 15" wide x 12.5" deep. It turns out this is the perfect size for a brisket of 6.5 lbs (see pic) or smaller, so theoretically it's possible to smoke about 25lbs of meat at a time, which is probably more than even I need on my biggest day of cooking (the 4th of July, of course). I'd estimate that it's possible to cook two good sized pork butts and probably 6-8 slabs of baby back, and 3-4 slabs of spare ribs, though I think the average length of a slab is a little longer than 15" so you'd probably have to cut them up a bit. For fish, obviously it depends on the type, but we're probably talking up to 8 2lb filets of something like salmon. TL:DR - you can fit a lot of food in this smoker.
One note about the "deluxe" version vs the regular version; the glass window does give off heat, and while it's nice to be able to see what's being cooked (even at night with the internal light) I'm not sure it's worth the trade-off. In particular it's worth noting that the front glass gets hot enough to burn, which makes it particularly unsafe when kids are around. Not that anyone should allow kids to play around a smoker in the first place, but it's something to think about when purchasing this unit.
So how well does it work? Well I've just done one cook of a brisket so the jury is still out, but so far I'm relatively impressed, with some caveats; the brisket I made turned out great, largely because of the consistent temperature of the unit. The meat flavor wasn't as smoky as my previous smoker (a basic Weber) but I think this could be corrected by refilling the wood chip box once during the cook (which they don't recommend, but I think might be needed). The real upside to this unit is the ease of use and cleanup - it's so easy to get food in and out, to add water if needed, or add wood that it makes it much more approachable. The fact that it can cook longer with less refills also makes this a more every-day (well, every-weekend) device. And the cleanup is much better than with my previous smoker, since all of the components can be fit in the dishwasher. My previous smoker was so difficult to clean that I often didn't use it just because I didn't want to bother with the cleanup. So in short I think this is going to encourage me to smoke more often, give me the capability to cook in larger quantities when needed, and most importantly, control the heat and smoke more carefully to produce a better tasting result. Overall a good purchase at a pretty reasonable price, though in hindsight I might opt for the regular rather than the deluxe version since the remote is not as useful as I had hoped, and the glass door is both non-insulating and possibly a danger to children.
There are two basic ways to cook using this smoker: By time, or by temperature probe. When cooking by time, you set the cooking temperature, set the cook time, and when it's done, the cooker reverts to a 120º "keep warm" temp until you remove the finished food. When cooking by temperature probe, the process is similar; you set the cooking temperature and the desired food internal temp, push the included temperature probe into the uncooked meat, and the cooker runs until the meat reaches its desired temperature. At that point (like the "cook by time" approach), the smoker enters the "keep warm" mode until you remove the food. Well...that's how it's supposed to work. And therein lies the problem I experienced.
My first cook was a pork shoulder for pulled pork. I set the desired cooking temperature of 225º, the desired final meat temperature of 205º, and sat back, looking forward to the finished product, due in about 8 hours. But I kept an eye on the cooker, and after about an hour, it had entered "keep warm" mode, and my food was no longer cooking. So I started it again, assumed it was a glitch or that I had made an error, and again kept an eye on it. And sure enough, it ran for about an hour, with the meat getting nowhere near it's 205º final temperature, and entered the 120º keep warm mode.
So I assumed I was doing something wrong, studied the manual, and started over. An hour later, same result. And an hour later, same result. I called customer support, and gave them the details of the problem at great length. The first respond I got was "that's normal", which seemed obviously incorrect. So I called, and gave the info to a customer-service rep who confessed that this model was brand new, and that they hadn't seen one yet. He promised m that someone would get back to me and help me resolve it.
Tick...tock...tick...tock...no response. A week later, I got an email that said that the behavior I'd seen is normal, and that my support request was being closed. So I called, explained the issue to another customer-service representative, and she promised me that she would reopen my case and call me back the same day. That was 9/7/15; today is 9/20/15 and I have never heard from Char-Broil again.
This smoker has lots of potential. It's extraordinarily well built, solidly constructed, and will cook A LOT of food at once. My advice to you would be to wait until the kinks are ironed out, because as of September 2015, Char-Broil's people care not prepared to support this model, and the electronics are glitchy at best.
Edit: After 18 months or so I've given up on this smoker. Everything I wrote above is true, but when it gets down to it, even in manual mode this smoker is far more of an electric oven than a smoker. The basic flaw seems to be that at temperatures at which one might want to cook something long and slow, like a brisket, the smoker doesn't produce enough heat to generate smoke effectively. And at the temperatures at which it smokes more effectively, you're cooking a lot hotter than you'd want to.
I'm moving on to something better.
My major complaint is that the temperature probe is not easily plugged in and in my case once the ambient temperature inside of the cabinet reaches the set cooking temperature the probe shuts down the unit. However the food is no where close to being done and thus I am forced into guesstimating the cooking time. The probe was one of the features that prompted me to purchase the Char Broil unit.
The unit does maintain efficiently maintain the set temperature inside the cabinet and is easy to clean if you stay on top of it.
I have been smoking for over 30 years and have used electric (Little and Big Chief), charcoal (Brinkman and Big Green Egg) and propane (Masterbuilt). In addition to this unit I also use The Big Green Egg.
