This thing is rock solid, everything is a great fit. The stainless components are 304 stainless not the cheaper 430. It maintains its temp within 2 degrees , even with 40 degree ambient temp swings. IMHO it's the best pellet smoker you can get for even more money. They have the best customer service I've ever come across. When it comes to the food it cooks, its been my best ever & I cook a lot, 3 to 4 times a week. I did a ton of research when looking for a bigger pellet grill, my research kept coming back to Rec Tec. For me, I feel I made a very good decision on my purchase, I have no complaints.
