I think it's very interesting and looks to be well built. I'm not sure if I'm feelin' pulling out the racks every time I want to tend to something in the cooker. Those racks are gonna be hot as chit, loaded with meat and heavy. If I still drank I know exactly how that would end up. It'd be nice to be able to pull them out and let them hang, but with that orientation I don't think that's really feasible - at least with my non-existent design abilities.
I could see it for specialized uses for someone who has a precise knowledge of what they're doing i.e. x amount of meat will definitely be done in x amount of time with no peeking. There would probably be a more pressurized environment inside the cooker, which is great.
I really do like the thinking and building going on there, just not sure about the rack situation. I'm also wondering if a split door would be something to try, but that would kinda go against the concept of a well sealed cooker. It'll be very interesting to see how she cooks. I'll echo colonel00 and say I too like the creativity and craftsmanship - thanks for posting & I look forward to more.
