I purchased this unit yesterday because I needed a smoke cabinet that I could modify to use a variety of heat sources. This is intended to be used with charcoal, but I placed a 1500 watt brinkmann heating element in the bottom. I ran the cord out the vent, then set my hickory wood in the bowl above the heat element. I filled the space below the element with lava rock. I also have a gas burner that will fit nicely if I decide to use propane. I seasoned the smoker for about an hour before use. I cooked a 15 lb brisket all night last night. Using a digital thermometer I was able to check the accuracy of the guage in the unit door. It was pretty accurate to about 15-20 degrees from what I could tell. The unit maintained a temp of about 240 degrees all night with an outside temp in the forties. I'm sure charcoal would work just as well. With 4 adjustable vents, temp regulation should be easy. The unit was undamaged and packed well. Assembly was a cinch, as my 8 year old son was able to do most of it. He enjoys helping. The only addition that I plan to make is some high temp felt gasket for the doors, as some smoke does tend to escape there. The brisket turned out amazing. This is nothing fancy, but it is well made, affordable, and makes a perfect smoking chamber. I'll add some images to this review.

I just got this smoker over the weekend and smoked 2 beer Butt chickens with ease and an 8lb pork shoulder the next day. After sifting through the reviews I realized something had to be done about the Charcoal pan so I took my drill to it and put around 30 holes all over the pan on the sides and the bottom to help with air flow and diminish ash build up. I had no problem reaching 300 degrees and maintaining it best chicken I have ever had. This little guy works great and has plenty of room to smoke several things at once. The water pan is a must use even if you don’t put water in it put it in when you cook to help break up some of the heat, ash, and flames. Its real light so it’s easy to take in and out of the garage. This will not let you down for the price.

I feel like people who rate this lower are people who are rating this smoker against higher end smokers. The problem is, this CLEARLY isn't a higher end smoker because of the price. Anyone who does a little due diligence and research can easily find out what they're getting with this smoker, and for the price in comparison with smokers in it's class-range this thing is AWESOME! Yes, the metal is thin and you have to perform a few modifications to it, but you knew that going in. And the mods are easy and cost an additional $20-30 extra. You will not find a better beginner smoker for the price, and it allows for easy mods and room for upgrades (adding more racks, etc). I highly recommend this for a first smoker or as something for the "casual" smoker. I am a novice to veteran griller/smoker and I have turned out GREAT food with this thing. There is a bit of a learning curve, but there's one for anything you buy: you have to learn how it performs and its nuisances. Again, great smoker.

Very nice smoker for the price. I use it every wknd. Piece of advice though....buy the standard size Weber vegetable tray for ur charcoal. The bowl provided with the smoker has NO holes for ventilation at all. Thats using a smoker with charcoal 101 in my opinion. The Weber tray is an EXACT fit in this smoker.......beautiful! Just to warn everybody, the metal on this smoker is thin but it still holds the heat pretty well. Overall, I will put this smoker 2 wrk 4 a long time. Oh yeah, and it holds a ton of meat on two separate adjustable height racks. Later!

I bought this smoker 2 weeks ago. The first week I smoked two racks of ribs. Came out delicious but the arm to water pan holder (rack) broke at the weld. I figured oh well freak event. The second week I smoked an 18lb turkey. Took a little longer than expected but delicious. However the slide you put the food rack on broke at the weld also. Now, I know what you get what you pay for but this is a crazy manufacturing problem Welds should not break after two weeks of normal use. It cooked the food well but now I wonder what is going to happen after the third use. I know the racks and sliders are approximately $20 to replace but if something breaks again I could have just bought the next smoker in quality up. It works well but I can't recommend something of inferior quality.

  • A. Putting charcoal in a pan (without ventilation) will not work, I bought a weber round charcoal grill grate for $9 and placed it on top of the charcoal pan, works great and fits great. Use lump charcoal and wood chunks and you can get all the heat you need.

  • A. Needs more air intake to get hotter fire. I drilled some extra holes in fire pan, about 12 1/4" holes. Works better.

  • A. It sounds to me like you're not using your vents correctly: You probably think that you have to keep the vents closed to keep the heat in, but it's the OPPOSITE. You have to open your vents to provide more oxygen to your coals/wood so they burn higher and hotter. You'll have to experiment by first keeping all of the vents OPEN. Watch your thermometer, and if you get too high, close one of the vents. If both vents are open and you're not getting above 225, you're not using enough coal/wood! But my guess is it's your vent control which is screwing you up. Also, and of course, resist the temptation to open your main lid/cover to "peek in" when you don't have to. You'll lose a lot of heat in the chamber this way, but with small units like this, it doesn't take all that long to bring it back up to optimum temperature again. Good luck, and have fun!
