Cons:Loss of power interruption.
I received the smoker in April of 2007 as a gift. I was a little concerned with the "Electric" smoker because I have always heard bad things about them.
After reading the manual and some review on the web, I was convinced it was worth taking the chance.
I have used it for Boston Butts, Ribs, Link Sausage, Chicken and probably a few other experiments.
I absolutely love it.
It allows hands off smoking with terrific results.
Easy to clean up racks and pan. Easy access to everything. Easy and safe method for adding chips without opening door.
The only problem I have had is one day the power cycled to the house in the morning while I was at work. (I know the lawyers probably say not to leave it unattended.) After the power loss, the unit does not come back on. When I came home at lunch to add chips and check on it...it was at 100 degrees and cooling down.
