I also want the thicker gauge walls because I need the heat retention when smoking in the winter.
I live in Michigan and bought this on Super Bowl Sunday. I have used it in the snow and it works real well. I have pics of it with snow piled around it and running at 275 burning 1 stick every 30-45 mins or so.
But I sure would like a nicer one. Just cant justify it with how well mine works.
I wish Lang was closer to me, I really like the 36 patio. it would be perfect for me.
