Right now, it is in prototype but is very close. I am cooking on one of the G2 Fatboy Pellet prototypes and so far I love it.......I have been anti-pellet for a long time but I'm here to tell you, if you like the pellet model, this is worth waiting a few more weeks for.
Not saying I don't believe that, but I have spent THOUSANDS on pellet smokers(Still have my PG500 which is only used as a grill now), and those things just dont produce the smoke flavoring, even when they are pouring out smoke.
The only thing to date that I can taste a nice smoke flavoring from is my Big Steel Keg, which of course uses lump charcoal and wood chunks.
I might shoot you a call about that smoker tomorrow.
