It's a cool little cooker though...
This one guy on another bbq forum smoked a fatty in one for close to 8 hours using just one handful of briquettes.

I just pulled the trigger on a silver one. One day deal at Woot....$69 ....until they're gone. Amazon sells the same unit for $120.

That's a heckuva deal, Roadie. I bet it will be fun to play around with.
I'd love to get one just to have a mini smoker, but I see no way to control temps. Those things don't have vents you can damper, do they?

I thought about that too, and I'm sure I can modify it slightly by adding a controllable vent.

In tandem with this Woot deal Cobb USA is offering 50% off on all accessories so I jumped on that deal too and ordered 3 essential items for the grill.
The Cobb USA discount code is "wootdeal23".

Cobb's discount makes it more appealing, as a few of the reviews I just read says there are a couple must have items. It should be fun.

Congrats on your new gadget.

I just received my Cobb Grill dome extender. Now I can use my small chicken roasting stand without it hitting the top of the dome and preventing it from seating closed. I'm pretty sure a full sized roaster stand wouldn't fit, even with the dome extender. I can use the roasting rack for full sized chickens.

Two quick tips: EZ OFF Fume Free oven cleaner makes clean up a snap with no elbow grease. I used ajax and other cleaners that wouldn't even phase the baked on brown haze. EZ OFF cleaned it in minutes.

The roasting rack can be easily secured to the grilling plate. Once it's seated on the grill plate, cut up 4 wooden skewers and force them into the wire feet that protrude below the plate. Now when you use the prong tool to remove the plate to add coals, the wire roasting rack won't awkwardly lift up also.

Don't forget that Cobb will be getting in more Lokkii charcoal disks soon.
There's a box of 48 on eBay right now for $65 free shipping. A good deal if they are still relatively fresh stock ($1.50 ea).

I suppose you could just stuff some dome holes with aluminum foil, however I would think the existing upward airflow probably needs to be maintained for maximum heat and efficiency, by design.
Also, some people drill out more holes on the grill plate for more direct heat. I might do the same.

I ordered the dome extender, the fenced roasting rack, and the fry pan.

I also saw that video on U Tube where the guy drilled out the diffuser pan. I think he was doing a whole rack of ribs. The drippings will hit the coals but some like it that way, in addition to the direct heat.

I think you can even cook corn on the Cobb....:)

I'm pretty sure I'm going to have fun with my new gadget...:)))

I gave that Cobb on Woot! the ol' hairy eyeball for awhile but didn't pull the trigger. Dang, not I wish I would have! I didn't realize that's about 1/2 price. Woot! has a lot of good deals. And I have at least 50 Woot! shirts!

I received my new toy I ordered from Woot yesterday. The accessories for the cooker which I had ordered separately from Cobb USA came in yesterday as well.
Now I need to decide what I'm going to cook in it this weekend...))))
