A few months ago I ordered my first electric smoker- Cookshack Amerique and I am really enjoying it-So far I make great Prime Rib-chickens etc but I still cannot get my ribs and brisket to turn out was well and with the smoke ring of my old homemade pit. Last week I ordered the Scottsdale from Arizona BBQ Outfitters-it looks to be a really well made Santa Maria style grill with a hood and windbreak that will make it double as a pit I was wondering if anyone here owns one and their thoughts? I biggest question I have here is concerning the paint job- I paid $517 extra for 'Powder Coated Pain" vs the 1200 deg stove pain that is standard with the grill/pit Anyone own a powder coated pit? if so how has it hold up to the temps over the years? I have a great Bayou Classic 700 deep fryer and Amerique smoker- but I have been lacking a good portable grill to cook burgers and steaks on- thinking this Scottsdale will fill the bill and get me back on track with my ribs and briskets Here is a video of the grill on Youtube- I appreciate any input from owners AND anyone with experience with the powder coat finish durability-Thanks!
