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!!

High expectations but low qualityI bought this grill after much anticipation. First few grills I had problems with the fire box welds bowing causing about a 1/2 inch gap in the lid of the fire box. This has led to horrible temperature control and has not resolved into my second season of use. The door for ash removal is now rusted so bad the weld on it is breaking. Very disappointed considering how much this grill cost. I'm having to throw in the towel and purchase a different brand at this point after less than a year of use.

Excellent SmokerI researched this smoker for 7 months before I bought it. If you are looking to get this grill a little cheaper wait until the winter months as it was on sale in December of 2015 for $499.
Now to the smoker. Quality wise this smoker is solid and looks to be pretty durable. I have cooked on it several times and each time the ribs, chicken, and pork loins turned out great. If you are an amateur this smoker will make you look like a pro.
Before I cooked on this smoker I seasoned it with Safflower Oil. Pour the oil in a bowl, using a new clean paint brush spread the oil all around the inside off the smoker including grates, inside the chimney, and hinges. Next fill your charcoal chimney full of charcoal and dump it in the firebox. Then fill the charcoal chimney halfway and light it, wait to the coals are white and then dump it on top of the unlit coals in the firebox. Leave the top to the firebox open, open the smoke stacks, and the side fire box door for about 10 minutes. The coals will have fire and at this point spread the coals around evenly and place two pieces of hickory or pecan wood on top and allow for the would to catch fire. Once the would has caught fire close the lid but leave the side fire box open for another 5 minutes. Close the lid on the smoker side and watch the temperature rise, adjust vents accordingly. For seasoning the smoker I kept my temp at 350 for two hours and then let it back of from there, the process lasted about 5 hours. Also cut an onion in half and rub it across your grates then leave the onions in there for a little added flavor!
I use the same method every time to light my smoker except for I only use one piece of would at a time to keep my temp around 225-250 to smoke and then when I go higher in temp I use two pieces of would for grilling. It should take about thirty to 40 minutes to get the smoke and the temp right before you cook, so please manage your time wisely especially if you want to have your meat done at a specific time.
LEARN your smoker and it will produce great results. You have to be patient when it comes to smoking meat and really learn to control your temperature so that you get the same great BBQ every time.

Great design!!!I was in the market for a new offset smoker, and had decided on the Old Country Pecos. Then I saw this bad boy at the store. I went home and started reading up on it, and seeing how people on the BBQ forums rated it. I was sold! I've only done a few cooks so far, but it really does cook evenly. When this model first came out, it seems they had some quality issues with welding, but it seems those have been addressed. I would recommend looking it over carefully at the store in any case. Mine didn't have any flaws, but when heated has a minor issue of the firebox door pinching a little bit when opened fully (i.e. resting on the stop). Not a big deal at all. The welds, hinges and rods should be straight, and doors should close flush - at the store.
Also, there's several ways to control air flow through the smoker - the ash door, 3 sliding vents to the firebox, the firebox door, and the two smoke stacks. This will be different than any smoker you've used, so I recommend keeping a log of your first few cooks - logging the smoker and meat temps, positions of the vents, etc every 15-20 minutes, and what adjustments you make to maintain your desired temp.

Is this a wood smoker
Asked by: Sarty 35
Yes, you should use wood. You can always use charcoal, but wood will give better flavor.

I just purchased my over under cooker 2 months ago. I know it might sounds crazy but how do I clean this thing. I'm just getting in to smoking

How you clean the smoker will depend on how dirty the smoker is and what kind of build up you have in the smoker. We would recommend searching google for some information on how to clean and upkeep your smoker. This can be a great resource and there is plenty of information that should help you.

How many grates does the smoker come with? I understand it should have two level grates in the cooking chamber and one in the firebox for grilling.
