     Centro smoker for 50.00 bucks is it worth the

    potential  probs to acquire this piece

  2. The Centro looks identical to the MES. It's a very popular smoker on this site. For 50.00$, I'd jump on it right away. It would look cool next to my WSM. Also check out the AMNS as an addon for it.

  4. well fer better or worse i bought it

    tested it yesterday set to 235 f.

     timer 2 hours

    it maintained 235f. within the advertised + or - 10 f.

    opened the door and cooled it down

    within 10seconds it started heating again

    and maintained that temp.till it shut down on the timer

     next week we do it with ribs
  5. You're gonna love it, especially come winter! These are very well insulated and make cold weather smoking a breeze!  I've used mine at -30c and the only bad part is running out to check on it / add chips but that is not going to be a problem this winter as I now have an AMNS and just ordered an AMNPS.
