Tell the guy to kiss your butt and go ahead and build your smoker!
I used one of mine last night to grill some steaks. It is one that I have the fan control installed. I set the fan to run continuously.
Thing was like a blacksmith's forge! Cooked the meat FAST and then I had to choke everything down before it got red hot. Temp gauge went to 500 !!!!
Worked good but it made my outside paint smell a little.
