    Got this as a Father’s Day gift first smoker but love it I’ve done pork shoulder brisket whole chickens so far only thing I would chang is the thermometer


    This is the ultimate beginner smoker rig! I began on a kettle charcoal grill and quickly outgrew it. And this smoker fits all my BBQ needs! I find a vertical smoker to be so useful when cooking multiple meats or even larger volume of the same meat. What is key about this unit though, is the firebox. I have browsed a lot of smokers and when if comes to efficient/easy-to-use; this one takes the cake. It comes with a charcoal box, this helps charcoal burn effectively over time. And below the charcoal box is an ash tray. This is a great setup because it separates the old ash from the new ready to burn charcoal. This smoker also has dual dampers for the firebox and this allows more air to fuel your fire; making it easier to maintain heat by adjusting one or both bottom dampers. Which all of Dyna-Glo’s smokers offer the same setup it appears and this teaches you the proper way to fuel a smoker. To top it off as well, this rig has a wood chip box that hangs over the charcoal box. This is where you get to add more flavors to your cook! Want to change up the taste? Add some apple, cheery, or pecan chips to the woodchip box!

    I have used this smoker for 1-1/2 yrs. The smoker itself is Fun, Somewhat easy and The food is awesome! GNGR’s review is correct it is built well, lots of room inside. The charcoal box is designed perfectly. Easy to move. Take’s up little room in the garage. The cover keeps the dust and dirt off (Nice bonus). Two added tip’s about this smoker- Remove the bottom screws on one handle and temp probes will slid right in,(I still carry it with the screws out). I have found it’s better to use charcoal brickette’s rather than lump charcoal. (Easier to control temp). I did a lot of research on smoker’s, I brought this one and I would buy this smoker again!
