Couple more notes on the NEGATIVE side I have discovered so far:
A couple people here mentioned the outside of their cookers graying after use. I didn't notice any of that until today. I believe the bottom ash pan is not as insulated as the rest of the smoker body and dome. I noticed some smoke coming from somewhere during my high heat pizza cook tonight and I looked at the bottom and noticed that some of the paint on the bottom of the ash pan may have been smoking. I'll have to take the pan off and look at it closer a little later. I think the smoke coming up around the sides of the smoker from the bottom may have cause a little graying of the surface. A damp cloth seems to have cleaned it up.
