One thing about a Jambo is the inlet from the firebox is level/slightly above grate level. Therefore the heat/smoke rolls over the top of the food grate as opposed to rising from beneath. Personally I love my Jambo but I think all offsets are wonderful in their own way.....just depends on what you want, what you can afford, or in my case what was available used at an affordable price....just got lucky because of a good brethren.
