Anyone familiar with these guys? Their prices seem very good and the rigs look very nice, but not sure about the quality. Anyone here know somebody who can speak to these?

That's a lot of diamond plate

Interesting, "sling n steel" is slang for spearfishing.

I checked them out but thought the diamond plate made them look...ugh!

Holy fark those are cheap smokers. A 60x30 trailer with a warmer is only $2900! Too bad they're so dang ugly. And EVERYTHING is diamond plate? Seriously? I can only imagine how easy it is to clean grease and food off that diamond plate shelf right i front of the cook chamber :doh:

I have seen them on Facebook a lot but have not heard from anyone who has one. Seems like a good price for the cooking capacity.

They show up on the St Louis Craigslist page a lot, for new ones.

Wtf..... hard to clean, flaking paint.... not for me

I can't speak to them personally.. But as someone who is also in the market for a stick burner I have done a lot of research on many brands of cookers. If you look at some of the pics of these cookers and zoom in on various parts you will see the fit and finish is lacking compared to others out there.

I'm sure they will work in the end. It just depends on what you are looking for in your cooker. Do you possibly want to sacrifice some quality over price and size or would you rather pay a bit more and get a work of art that will last a lifetime?
