Default Opinions about this Grill

I was looking at this gril/smoker I saw at Sears. Does anyone have any feedback?

In all honesty, the metal is thin, the finish won't hold up and it will rust out. They also leak a lot of air making it hard to control temps for indirect/bbq cooking. For $150 you can crank out amazing Q on a Weber one touch gold or watch Crsigslist for a clean used Weber Performer for the same $$.

I have a Masterbuilt grill, it no longer gets used as was said above it leaks! I had to put foil along the back just to stop heat getting out (still could not regulate well enough) ended up parking it and getting a Weber 22" (ok more than one)

Two Weber OTS 22s will give you more grill space for less money.

Default Thanks For The Feedback

I figured it might be too cheap - you get what you pay for. I think I will stick with the WSM
