I love my grill.. I really do. I also have a propane "box" style Smoker that I used to start out. It was a good learning smoker because it was easy to maintain the temperature, but I found myself wondering what else was out there.
Ultimately, I made the transition when my 3rd gas grill started shooting flames out of the bottom of the grill towards the propane tank. It wasn't like I was buying a cheap gas grill. Each of the three were at least $200.00.. Anyways, I decided the make the switch to Charcoal.
I do love the Chargriller.. It's a great grill, and a wonderful smoker.
