abunda_amazon_reviews Bought my first one locally in the spring of 2011. I estimate we've used it 3 times a month in the six and a half years we've had it, which comes out to roughly 225 uses, and it's finally beginning to show some deterioration where the smoke chamber attaches to the charcoal trough (stainless steel is corrosion resistant, not corrosion proof, and the resistance depends on the grade of stainless steel). I'm ordering another one so there's no downtime when my current one bites the bullet. It's hard to convey how well this smoker performs; chicken, beef, fish, and pork all come out moist with a great smoked flavor. Following the simple guidelines provided, we've never had anything not cooked to perfection. As the instructions suggest, resist the temptation to check on your meat during cooking; you will just let out steam and smoke and delay the cooking process. Set the timer on your phone and go back when it's done. As Ron Popeil says, just "set it and forget it".

My dream is to have a backyard like that, but currently I have two smokers, a grill, a griddle and the Orion, which is in a class all by itself. The Orion Cooker is a fancier and better version of an upside down trash can bbq (google it for some fun videos). It's a metal chamber with up to three levels for food. You add charcoal to the ring around the cooker and to the top- this makes for some concentric heat waves that cook the food quickly..and because it's contained, the food is juicy as well. This Orion is my "go to" when I need to make ribs in a hurry- i've fit as many as 6 slabs of ribs and they are ready (and falling off the bone tender) in a little over an hour. I gave one to my oldest friend as a wedding present and he makes his Thankgiving turkey in it every year. It is somewhat of a pain to clean- I recommend easy off oven cleaner and some steel wool (of course, watch for loose wool threads). Also, the cylinder that holds the food is sealed, with the heat on the outside- so it's tricky to get a smokey flavor, if that's what you're after. (btw, there is a way to do- you put smallish wood chips on the inner edge of the cylinder and rely on the overall heat to burn them). Overall, though, it's fun to cook with and is especially great for cooking ribs. When you start it up, you have a ring of flames around the Orion- almost a spectacle at my parties.

I originally had it at 4. Like I said below, pork butts came out OK, but not great. I have had no luck with ribs. If you're used to the texture and flavor of ribs cooked low and slow over wood or charcoal, this cooker is not for you. The ribs come out moist, but the meat is sort of grey and not very tender. The flavorful crust or bark you get with low and slow cooking does not happen. I don't see keeping this--I'll likely sell it. Previous review: I got the cooker in short order via Amazon. It is very sturdy, built from stainless steel. Assembly was easy. I decided to cook a pork butt for my first try on the Orion. I prepped it like I usually do. I brined it for 12 hours and covered it with my own rub prior to cooking. I used some apple wood pellets I had lying around as the source of smoke. Starting the cooker was easy using the matchlight charcoal as suggested. I waited the 3 1/2 hours and pulled the roast. Internal temp was 197 F. I wrapped the pork butt in foil and old towels and let it rest in a cooler for about an hour. The results were pretty good for a first attempt. The meat had a nice smokey flavor, but not overpowering. Much of the meat fell apart as you would expect from a long session in my WSM. Some of the meat deep inside was flavorful and tender, but not quite as tender as on a longer cooking session on the WSM. I was very pleased with the overall result in only 3 1/2 hours of cooking as opposed to 10+ hours on my other smoker, but I can't say it will replace the WSM. I can't wait to try in on chicken and ribs next. Lesson learned: My rub has a good bit of brown sugar in it, and it think the temperature of the Orion is a bit high for this. Some places on the top of the butt had a bit of a bitter flavor from over-carmelization of the rub, but the bottom that was basted by the fat/juices flowing down did not. I'll simply leave the rub off or use one without brown sugar.;;Reviewed in the United States on September 16, 2018;;2.0 out of 5 stars;;Update: not so impressed.;;Gary Toups
