Horrible!!!!!!I've had this smoker for 2 and 1/2 years. The smoker will not hold a decent temperature to cook with. The fire box is rusted already. The charcoal door has broke and rusted out. Stay away from any model this brand provides. I cant believe this pit cost this amount of money and falls apart so quickly. Stay away! Spend the money on a Pits and Spitts or Gator Pit backyard model.

Good bang for the buckI've had mine for over 2 years now, and I love it. I got it for 500 and have cooked on it about 200 times. I like it for the large amount of grill space in the fire box, that you would not have in an offset smoker. It smokes really well, 5 degree temp difference from side to side and about 15 to 20 from front to back. My only complaints would be the craftsmanship. My handle to move it, fell off after about a year. I have a welder so I didn't really care. Easy fix. The hinges on the fire box lid are way too tight, which caused the door to aways stay open about a 1/2 inch. A quick hit with a Dremel tool on the hinge that was binding fixed that. Aside from those 2 things and a few cans of high temp paint about once a year. It has been awesome for the money.

Build toughPurchased 2 from the Palm Bay Store, and couldn't be happier. Heavy all welded construction,
After seasoning ( 3 coatings of safflower oil), put them to work the next day. After getting to know the ins and outs of this over and over design, I couldn't live without it now. The briskets, ribs, Boston Butt, came out to perfection. Well worth the money!!!

Great smoker.I bought this smoker a month ago. Good design. Works great. The temps are pretty even across the grate which makes it easy to cook a lot of food evenly. My only real issue is build quality and consistency. Some of the welds aren't that good. One of the channels that supports the grate broke loose before I ever put food in it. Definitely take your time and compare all of the ones at the store before you buy it. You'll immediately see variations in quality. Otherwise, this is a great smoker with a surprising amount of capacity for those large bbq cooks yet capable of handling a single piece of meat.

I got one of the good ones!I researched several brands when I was looking to upgrade to a larger cooker, some of which were double the price of this one. I visited several Academy locations in the process, because I noticed there was a LOT of variation in the quality of workmanship even within the same store. Quality control is nonexistent with this brand, but the design is fantastic. I finally located one with only minor flaws that I could live with or easily fix, and I have been very happy with the job it has done on multiple Boston butts and ribs. My suggestion is to really check the welds, etc. and don't just grab the first one you see or even necessarily lean toward the ones displayed inside the store. The one with a little rust outside might just be better overall. And about that rust... these are made from solid steel, and will rust without some basic maintenance if left in the elements year round. Overall, I couldn't be more satisfied with the product for the money I paid

Just a few issues with the weldingI just got my new smoker home and noticed one of the guides for the grates was not welded in place and the grate had some spots where the welds did not hold. It only took me about ten minutes to weld it back together, but for the price I paid, I should not have had to deal with this. Also, if someone else that could not weld had purchased this, they would have had to take it back. In the end, I am still glad I purchased this, just a bit let down on the welding not being done well in some spots.

Best smoker I have ever owned!!!!!!I purchased this smoker after doing my homework for a couple of months and I made the right choice. It is a very heavy smoker which is good for smoking because it will hold heat better then lighter models. I also love the fact that I can take a rack out and put in in the firebox and also use it as a grill. Last weekend I was smoking butts and ribs and at the same time grilled steaks and wings on the same rig. I would recommend this product to anyone that is tired of cheaper smoker that rust out and doesn't hold heat well. Great product! And also great customer service at my local Academy helping me getting it loaded up! Thank you!!
Delivered with a slightly bent bottom shelf that affected one wagon wheel (I will fix). It has a third stay cool handle on the right side. It opens a door to the firebox. On the ones at Academy the door is welded shut. Why the difference?

what is the side handle that mover a flap inside the smoker for?
Asked by: Booh
The handle opens a inside flap to the firebox (not speaking about the side door to the firebox). The flap is welded shut with no handle on the models in the store. Purchased one on-line and it had the third stainless steel handle. It might be to increase the heat in the cooking chamber, however the handle does not stay in the open position.

Is this a wood smoker
Asked by: Sarty 35
Hello Sarty 35,
The Old Country BBQ Pits Over and Under Smoker fuel type is coal and wood which should be used in the firebox to heat the cooking chamber. The amount of each that you will need will vary depending on various factors (weather, size / lbs. of item being cooked, etc.).
