Ah, good to know. Like I said I was just repeating what other people had said. Thx for the info.

What's weird is a HUGE percentage of people who I've met that own them say they are the best built cookers ever but when I ask follow up questions, I find out they never really use them that often. It's really weird. I'm guessing they must be a little like offsets. Fun to use but not typically a "daily driver." I could be wrong though. They sure look sweet.
I’ve been cooking on a HB pretty much every week for the last 20+ years. They are great grills but do have limitations. As far as grilling goes it’s great, but for smoking it’s certainly limited.
