I bought this smoker at Lowes a couple months ago. I have only smoked two things so far so wings and some mild Italian sausage. The wings came out rubbery and sticky, used a liquid marinade and should have finished them off on my gas grill. The sausage came out perfectly, smokey and still moist on the inside. The only issue I have is the uneven smoke output. I only see smoke for the first 3-5 minutes after adding chips, then it tails off. Still learning I guess.
