It arrived today, and it makes my old burned-out Masterbuilt look like R2D2 standing alongside Jabba the Hut. The serial number? 1. Pretty easy to remember. I already seasoned it, and it went from 0-250 and started putting out smoke in about 15 minutes. Smoke poured out of that little hole in the top like a choo-choo train. That 1500 watt element doesn't let no grass grow under its feet. Now I'm going out to find a whole steer to put in it.
