I was leery too and didn't pay till I seen it. When I went down and picked it up he had a flat semi truck out of Oklahoma there filled up head back out to sell them. I guess they build 2-3 units a day and a majority of them head out west to sell.
The firebox is a little small and he had only 2 intake vents in it so it was kind of hard to get it up to 250 without the door cracked. I put 2 more intakes and can crank 350 without a problem. When my buddy picked his up HBT,l they now have a larger firebox and another vent.
I still scratch my head every time I cook wondering how this guy makes any money.
