If you are looking for an entry level smoker, this unit can't be beat. Just picked up from Walmart Site to Store an set up this weekend.
Check your box for damage! Minor sheetmetal dents from shipping, 2minutes, block of wood and a hammer fixed that. Surprisingly well made, although thinner sheet metal, had no problem with assembly, all holes lined up, and all parts, including needed bolts & nuts, were individually packed which was nice.
This unit holds temperatures well, from below 200 to above 350, but is affected very much by the wind, so set up in a calm area or make a portable wind break, it will definitely help in maintaining temps that you want.
BUY A DRIP PAN! A metal one from the auto parts store set me back $10, but catches all the grease that WILL run out.
This is not a giant smoker, it has 4 supplied racks, 12" x 14" with room for 5 total, but you should be able to cook just about anything with some creative stacking.
All in all, very pleased with this unit, especially since it is under $100!.
