Pros - affordable,versitile good design well made
Cons - could use a larger wood chip box.
got this as a fathers day gift and am amazed at how well you can just use this with fantastic results on your first try. the model in the picture , is the electric version. I have the propane model. highly recommend this grill
Pros - great slow cooker
Cons - bad smoker
great slow cooker and roaster.Icooked pulled pork on this turned out great.ITS ALMOST impossible to get smoke flavor from this cooker tho smoke box is to high.The box is above the meat so hardly no smoke flavor gets to the meat.the only other draw back is the basket.These are the only big flaws with this cooker.
Pros - well made, multi function - best cooking tool on my deck!
Cons - takes a bit of practice to smoke adequately
This is a home run product!
Extremely versatile - it's first and most obvious use is to be a "turkey cooker" as it comes with a basket and it has the overall shape of a turkey fryer..( But that description alone omits it's other talents.)
This thing will give you the best , cleanest, safest - nearly "deep fried" turkey you ever had! It will handle a turkey up to 25 lbs. So - capacity is great. It uses infra-red to cook so the heat distribution is excellent, and the skin will get nice and brown - like a fried turkey. But - NO OIL to have to deal with, buy, clean up after - or dispose of.
It has an on board ignition, via twist knob, and temp adjustment as well. On high - this thing will cook a 6 lb. roasting hen in 45 minutes! On low - you can cook your ribs until they are fall of the bone tender - then lay them on the stainless grill plate - which come swith the SRG - for glazing or finishing.
Ribs, chicken, wings, vegatables.....even breads can be baked in it.!
This is the most multi-talented item I have in my arsenal of outdoor cooking gear. GREAT value!
