Just a thought,

I have one and like it for what it does well and that's grilling. But it is pretty much a one trick pony. No way to do indirect. I'm not sure how well it would work in cold or windy weather unless you provide some other way to block wind.

The seasoning burns off the first time you use it and it gets pretty rusty looking fast. Either get used to that look or season it each time you use it. (I do season the grate but not the rest.)

They provided a nice bail to lift it but did not bother to balance it. When you lift it, it tips forward, the door flops open and coals spill out. They obviously didn't test the design before they manufactured it.

The nice thing about it is the cast iron grate, but you can get that for a regular Weber and have a much more versatile piece of cooking equipment.
