With 5 Amazon stars and over 100 reviews, there is no doubt this product has brought great food to many homes, neighborhood parties, family get-togethers. S. Imes in South Carolina recently reviewed this smoker on Amazon and he said, "I bought this smoker after extensive research. I have always been the "grill master" in my family, but never invested in a smoker. After using the Weber website and a few other websites dedicated to smoker cooking, I was able to successfully smoke 2 whole chickens the first time! The chickens were moist and had the most delicious, delicate, smoky favor!I was so confident in my skills that a few weeks later ( and after much research) I had a BBQ at my house and smoked 15 lbs of chicken, 4 slabs of ribs, and 2 pork shoulders! I had to stay awake most of the night before (off & on), but the thermometer and the ease of use in adding charcoal made it very easy... I received rave reviews for my meat at the BBQ the next day!If you're in the market for a smoker- this is it! It's great for everyone- experienced or newbie- it's worth the money 2x over!!!P.S.- I didn't bother with a lot of the extras but the following items were invaluable. I used paraffin cubes that worked wonders!!! (non-toxic/no taste- found at Lowes) Also, If you're planning on ribs- invest $15 in a standing rib rack- you can stand 4 slabs up at a time- conserving space while not compromising on taste...Happy Smoking!

      I don't have a Weber cooker, but if I did I'd be smoking turkey and ribs on a regular basis!

      We used to have a Cooker a long time ago but not sure it was a Weber. We need to get one of these and get back in the habit of using one. They cooked the best hams, pork roast, and more.
