Seriously late to this party, but I was Googling this brand for a buddy and stumbled upon this thread. I called the factory to get the straight answer prior to reading this thread, yes all China produced. :(

I have heard that that may change. Possibly Mexico.

Love our American made Primo Grills!

Firebox cracking is possible with any ceramic smoker, but I've had my hands on several of the Chinese-made brands (including the Bayou Classic) while they had a fire burning and the build quality just wasn't there. For my money there are better ways to spend your hard-earned dollars.

Took mine back to Lowes. Broken firebowls are expected, but there is broken and there is disintegrating.

The more I read about these things, the more glad I am I got a Bubba Keg. I've had my first Keg for almost a year and so far so good. I've never cooked on a ceramic before, but I hear they are pretty much the same.

I purchased a Bayou Classic Cypress Ceramic Grill and used it some 25 times at low temps before the ceramic cracked completely through, during a use at well below its rated temperature. I contacted Bayou Classic about a replacement which they immediately denied. Their version of product support seems to be to provide a very limited warranty and to deny replacement claims based on whatever condition they can discover in order to do the minimum to support their obviously substandard product. They market their $800 ceramic grill as a less expensive version of the Big Green Egg, but neglect to address that their $800 product is of poor quality, with a very limited warranty, and marginal support from the manufacturer, while the BGE, at nearly twice the cost has a lifetime warranty with excellent product support. If you want something cheap, buy a cheap tin smoker and replace it every year. If you want something of quality buy a Big Green Egg or a Primo ceramic grill. The Bayou Classic ceramic grill seems to be the worst of both, it's both expensive and poor quality.
