    Pros - Unit intact with no shipping damage, good fit and finish, easy assembly of parts.
    Cons - Wheels would be nice.
    I have not seasoned this unit yet so this review is only my first impressions at unboxing and assembly. I found this unit on Craiglist for $100 and it was new and still packed in the box, so for $100 I gave it a high mark for value. The box had a small hole in one side (about 1") but there was no apparent damage to the smoker body at all. Unboxing was tedious due to everything being wrapped and secured with MANY cable ties which prohibited damage so I'm not complaining. All parts assembled with relative ease and all hardware was present and accounted for in the packaging. All parts that were mounted permanently with screws aligned up with mounting holes without having to insert the screws at wild angles to get them started. This unit is gen 2 so I will follow up with another review once I've had opportunity to season then cook with it. I also plan on purchasing the Masterbuilt Cold Smoke Generator and will review it once I've used it as well. I suppose my greatest concern is how the electronics are going to hold up once in use, I base this concern on research done prior to my purchase. I've read good things about Masterbuilt's Customer Service but I hope not to have to include that in any future reviews.
