... to the smoker family. Received it Friday night but I was away for the weekend and so it had to wait until tonight to come out of the box. First impression is that I like the way it is made. All the parts fit as they should and it's very sturdy. I'm one who likes things to work out of the box and it was nice that all the bolts and holes lines up as they should. It will certainly be a learning curve using charcoal, but one I think I will enjoy. I will have to get use to the smaller size, but the upside is I will finally get to use my rib rack. Plan is to season it tomorrow and if I have time to do a small smoke to test it out: turkey breast, meatloaf, stuffed peppers and some veggies. Qview to follow, hopefully tomorrow.
