Default Pitmaker Smokers

Has anyone had any experience with Pitmaker smokers? I am more so interested in the BBQ Safe. Just trying to get some feedback on different smokers out there. What is the advantages or disadvantages of these over other smokers on the market.

Tagged for following this thread. I am currently hiding money to get a Pitmaker and after looking at both their vertical and offset I am torn. I love the absolute indestructability of the Safe and Vault or the massive grill space and offset style of the Long Rifle Sniper. Either way, those things are built to be "forever" smokers.

Victor and George are great and their cookers are amazing. We had a blast at the Houston Livestock and Rodeo earlier this month. Here's their cooker that won for best pit at HLSR.

While their pits are really nice, Customer service has been non-existent since they got my money.
