I finally broke down and for amazen smoker. After reading all the positive reviews I had to pull the trigger and get one. Got it started and going to test it out on some chicken. Will post some progress pics later with a hopefully finished product not to long after that. Also thanks Todd. Excellent customer service. I ordered it and it was shipped same day. It was on my door step in south Louisiana in less than a week! You won't find better customer service.
