Norco,

Did you happen to get a price on those smokers?

I'd like to see one in person to see the quality.

Wow, if they work well, that small cooker seems like a real bargain. I'd really like to take a look at them up close.

Looking at the pictures, what I can gather is the heat and smoke enter the cooking chamber from one opening at the bottom of the cooking chamber and exit out the top. If that is the case, some of the design flaws I see is there is no nature convection and no grease diversion plate. With a fire going and the grease landing at the bottom of the cooker, that surface is going to get mighty hot, which is a recipe for a grease fire. I let my Backwoods run dry once, and with the accumulation of the grease in the bottom of the pan, when I opened the door, instantaneous fireball. Now I'm only forming this opinion based on the photos, but that's the way it looks to me.

I wonder if they have ever used a chardcoal basket in one and how long of a burn they would get?

I'm tempted to plop down some tax refund money on the small one, but without hearing some experiences from actual users it's kinda hard to be the guinea pig. This looks much bigger than a Backwoods Chubby for the same amount of money, so it's definitely intriguing.

I have a Backwoods Chubby, and the big difference between these cookers that I can see is the heat and smoke of the Chubby travel up the side/back walls, then enter the cooker from the top. The heat and smoke then exhaust at the bottom of the cooking chamber, which creates a natural convection. The chubby also has a full water pan so the grease doesn't pool at the bottom of the heated metal of the firebox, which can make for a foul smell, or grease fire.

Default testing

I had the guy drop the smaller model off at my house yesterday. Plan to test it this weekend. If anybody wants to come by and see it during the week, or this weekend, let me know. I actually did a meatloaf on it last night and it held temps steady at 250 for 4 hours, then I went to bed, so will need to do it longer this weekend. I used my charcoal basket from one of my UDS'. Also did not use the water pan. PM me and I will give you my cell.

Definately would like to see the results, especially for a longer cook time.
