It's like a midi UDS available at Tractor Supply? Lemme go look... Yes, Tractor Suppy. Similar but inferior design to a 18.5" WSM. Probably needs mods for long cooks.

For $29.00, it would be a good option for the "hobbyist" who doesn't mind spending a few hours and a few bucks on extras to mod the heck out of it.

Edit: Ignore the two 1 star reviews on the site, they both were expecting the cooker to do all the work for them. "No instructions on what temps and how long to cook different cuts of meat to so I gave it 1 star" /ignore. Other review was complaining about the lower rack that rests on top of the low resting water pan. Yes that's a bad design, but nothing 15 minutes a few small pieces of hardare and some creative thinking could fix. So in reality, there hasn't been a review posted by anyone who knows how to operate this type of cooker. Think of it as a hybrid wsm/uds of the 18" variety, and modding accordingly.
Rescued 22.5" OTS. SJS Mini-WSM. HEB briqs (rebranded Royal Oak). Pecan/Hickory/Cherry/Apple/Peach woods.
