The reintroduced one has the bottom vent for air similar to the Smokey Joe Silver models vs. the old one which had vents at the top similar to the Smokey Joe Gold. The old one fell out of favor because of air flow problems resulting in lack of heat. I think this is a much better size for tailgating than the current SJ models.
