I am new to the smoker scene and wanted a good starter smoker. I've heard electric smokers are the way to go because you can control the temperature with ease (I know a true professional would not recommend an electric smoker) . With that said, I decided to pull the trigger on this guy and was not disappointed! The item was delivered a day ahead of schedule and the smoker itself was pretty light when I had to carry it to my back-yard. The only negative thing I will say about this product is the sticker on the front window is a pretty big pain to peel off(took almost an hour!!!) After that, everything was a breeze. The setup was pretty self explanatory and after a few minutes it was ready to go. This product also included a wireless remote that lets you monitor\control the smoker (Lights\Temp\Meat Prob\Timer,) This was a very awesome surprise as it was not called out in the item description on Best Buy's website. I was able to sit back and relax and watch football while monitoring the wireless remote. I started off with a basic rub\BBQ sauce for my first time and it turned out excellent. My friends\family couldn't believe this was my first time using a smoker.
