I saw one at the Sams in Bentonville. Impressed by the heavy duty steel they used, and you have lots of options for raising and lowering the charcoal. Didn't study it alot, but it nice to see manufacturers stepping up the quality. This one looks like it is built to last.

I honestly did not see it being worth the cost they are asking thats for sure. I was not that impressed when I went to see them here in Huntsville.

It's funny I just bought a somewhat similar setup from Sam's. Here's the link to my post and some pics:

http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=165636

It's not exactly the same thing, that one looks to be setup solely for grilling\smoking with lump charcoal where mine has a LP side and an offset smoker.

The biggest difference is price!! Mine was only $349. I can say that I wish the metal was a little thicker. It's not bad but for long term durability I'd prefer a little thicker. And yes it's made in china.

Based on the setup I just bought, and my overall experience with Sam's, I'd say that if you're a somewhat gifted amateur like me, it'd probably work fine for your backyard BBQ but I would look elsewhere for competition. Especially at that price point. If it were $400 cheaper then sure.

I'd really like to see this thing in person before i pass judgement, but if the pictures are a true representation, I'd spend the extra $200 and get the ABS Bar-B-Cube.

It looks more like 1/16, the metal is pretty thin in the pic's. Imho it is a pile of junk.

Just by looking at the lid...I would never pay a 1000 bucks for that thing. That's a lot of cash for some spot welding

I think that spot welded part inside the lid is shield/reflecter and not the lid itself.
but yea, price is to high.
