As far as smoking, it did great. I put some garlic and water in the water pan, a mix of apple and mesquite in the wood chip bin, and put the smoker on low. As long as I had the vent wide open it stayed at 175 F. If I closed the vent the temp got up to 200 F.
The whole chicken I cooked was great. After four hours of smoking on my back patio, the chicken was moist and had a delicious hint of BBQ. It was smoking pretty good for a couple of hours. My wife had doubts about me buying a smoker. Now she has a BBQ menu planned for next week.
All in all I would recommend this to a friend. It is easy to use and keeping the heat consistent throughout the smoking is very easy with the propane controls and the vent.
No information on how to adjust the vent to make it run cooler or hotter. Do not think it should matter w/ gas. It might just regulate the amount of smoke. I leave mine 1/2 open.
Runs to hot for a smoker when set as the instructions recommended, gas valve 1.5 turns open. I have mine less than 1/3 of a turn open to achieve 225deg. It took some trial and error to figure out how to get the temp low but once you figure it out the gas smoker works great.
Would have been 5 stars if knob on the smoker was able to adjust the temp low enough. I keep mine pegged on low.
It assembles easily and is quite attractive on my patio. I just purchased a cover to keep it protected from the sweltering Texas climate. R.F.O'Hara
I did noticed that the smoker runs fairly hot even at the lowest settings. I was able to get mine around 200 steady opening the propane tank just a quarter twist and then setting the damper most of the way open and dial between Med and Low. I would probably recommend the wider version of this smoker as it would probably fit a whole rack of ribs. I had to cut mine in half...see pics:
I have used it to make everything from smoked cheese or shrimp (about 15-20 min,) to pulled pork (8-12 hours) and this cooker maintains a constsnt temp. Wind can affect the flame, but I've never had a big problem with that, and I've been using mine for 2 years now.
Absolutely one of the best culinary investments I've made.
I bought one for friend as a housewarming present and they are thrilled with it.
A wheeled cart to place the cooker and the propane tank is something to be considered, otherwise it is a little awkward to move around. I very easily made one from 2x3's, plywood, and swivel casters.
