A cheapo versatile bullet that is best when cooking with gas, but can be adapted to cook with charcoal, and can be used as a smoker, brazier, or deep fryer. This was my first smoker, and it lasted several years although the base eventually rusted out and the aluminum firebox corroded. The thermometer is cheap. Adding water is awkward because it must be poured from the top and can easily get on the food or the lava rocks. Adding wood is downright dangerous because the whole upper unit must be slid partially aside. The newer Masterbuilt 7-in-One (below) is modeled on this unit, only a lot better for little more money. List price is about $180. For discount pricing and direct ordering from Amazon.com, click here.
