There is a Google search box near the bottom of the page that will search just this site. Several members have recently bought Assassin smokers and have posted quite a bit about them.

Here are some threads to get you started...

As far as where to buy, I think the only option is direct from Assassin. I e-mailed them and received a response the same day. Shipping is reasonable.

Check out the Deal that Superior Smokers is running for this winter. They have 3 sizes to choose from and come with Guru and slam latch for the holidays.

Kevin's a great guy to deal with, and always willing to answer any questions!

Ron took care of the link I was gonna post, the smoker has been awesome. Jeff and Robin are hard to beat on personal connection and backing up their brand. Take care of you like family, good look if you need anything shoot me a pm.

Jeff and Robin aren't the only ones that stand behind their product. I personally stand behind every single cooker I sell. I am happy to answer questions about using it, as well. I cook on mine very often and compete regularly, ask anyone that has bought a cooker from me about the level of support they get and I think you will find that my customer service is second to none and I am happy to answer any and all questions. My number one goal is customer satisfaction.

I own 3 Superior SS-2s and use the 2 that are trailer mounted in competition. I love them and wouldn't use anything else.

I can only speak from experience but since the Assasin is fabricated by the same people as Superior, I can speak to how much I love my SS-1. I picked up my Superior SS-1 late Sunday night and I've cooked on it everyday since then and loved it. I was planning on keeping my BWS Fatboy as a backup cooker, but after using the SS-1 I don't think I want or need it.

And Kevin is super helpful- I didn't even buy my cooker from him (bought it used from one of his teammates) and he has made a point to get me up to speed on the cooker.

As I understand it, the Assassin, Rebel and SS are all made by the same people. So what's the difference in them?
