I was hoping for other features like a hanging rack, portability, pull-out fire tray and grilling capability.
This product has that excellent design and all those features at a very low price point.
The drawback to this unit (and the only way to offer at this low price point) is the thin steel construction. My first concern is how long it will last. Since the firebox tray or other parts are replaceable, and, even if I have to buy a new unit every few years, its still cheaper than buying a 1/4" steel version that will last a couple of decades.
The larger issue with the thin steel construction is heat retention. If you add wood to bring the heat up, the temperature will quickly spike, and as the wood burns down, the unit will lose heat just as fast. That makes it tricky to maintain a steady temperature. I found that using fist-sized pieces of quality wood on a short refresh rate (every 15 to 45 minutes), I can maintain a temperature of +/- 25 degrees with blue smoke. And, for a neophyte like myself, I think that is pretty good.
Assembly notes: I needed three tools for the assembly - fat-head Phillips screwdriver, Crescent wrench and (for two screws placed in a weird spot) and ratchet with a fat-head Phillips screwdriver head. I put LockTite on all the screws (I don't know if that is necessary, but its what my dad taught me years ago and I don't want him giving me a hard-time). It took about 2 hours to go from completely boxed to starting the fire.
I put on high-temp sealant tape on the smoker door and I might add it to the firebox door as well if I get really picky. Finally, I've been told to not trust the cheap temp gauges included with smokers, so I replaced it with a high-end gauge (Tel-Tru) and added a second one at the lower part of the door (drilled a hole for it) to monitor temperature from bottom to top.
Overall, there are better smokers on the market with higher quality materials. But, for the money, I thought this was the best value available with a great design. With a little extra assembly work and careful temperature management, I've been able to produce some pretty fantastic BBQ. So, it gets 5 stars.
