General condition--obviously

When you first power it up, check the firmware version. U-26 is the current one if I am correct.
If it is lower, you can get new firmware and a "loader" from Yoder. Brings the controller up to date.

Great cooker----I am doing 4 huge Chuckies and a Chicken as we speek.
Could not be happier

Good Luck
