Thats a nice looking rig. I seriously considered one but im right on the bay and if it isnt stainless it wont last long outside.
Is there a burn in on it? My Smokin Tex came with "burn in" wood. You ran it for 8 hours with no meat to burn off all the oils and stuff from the manufacturing, and to provide some initial smoke seasoning.
Can't wait to see what in turns out.
