abunda_amazon_reviews This is not a grill for a adult. It’s literally 4 feet tall. My 8 year old asked why we bought him a grill. Every aspect of this thing is cheap. This is the saddest excuse for a grill I have ever seen. I don’t even want a refund. Don’t buy this if you actually grill. It’s a embarrassment;;Reviewed in the United States on January 23, 2019;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;Child’s grill;;Joe;;;I like that it’s sturdy enough for us to move around our gravel driveway... from storage to use. WHAT I DONT LIKE :the bottom tray. ( where the coal goes) was rusted and crappy looking after the first use. It looks rusty and burned out ... I feel like it will need to be replaced a few times a season... I’m nervous that the bottom of he grill will begin to look like this soon... I’m really not quite sure why this tray wasn’t coated as well .. we use foil now to cover and prevent further damage ... but buyer be ware;;Reviewed in the United States on June 15, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;It great for beginners!!!!;;Autism Mom;;;Instructions have a lot of misprints and the legs were labeled incorrectly. My husband and I put the whole bottom together before realizing that the holes pointed the wrong way to attach the body. It did stink that we had to re-do that part, but we had a fun afternoon in the sun figuring it out together. Once we realized you need to use the instructions as just a general guide and then just use some common sense, we got it together quickly. Used the large grill area two days in a row and the temperature gauge works fine; it gets the job done and makes some delicious (vegan!) bbq foods. It is not short like another reviewer said; I am 5'9, my husband's 5'11 and there is not an issue with height. It is higher up than my old small Walmart grill, which was also fine. Seems like a fake competitor review. It is, however, cheap for its large size and having the smoker attached. If you expect the grill of a lifetime for $100 you'll be disappointed, but that is also common sense and it's your own fault if you don't have any. My item did not have any dents and I don't think it is 'very cheaply' made. On the contrary, I think it's nice and lightweight, easy to move, easy to empty, quick to heat up and very nice-looking in the yard. It was also affordable; I think it is worth the price I paid and I expect to get at least ten years out of it. I have not used the smoker and really have no intention of doing so for now; I got it for the grill and so that wouldn't factor into my review anyhow.;;Reviewed in the United States on June 3, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Not nearly as bad as everyone says;;Krissy;;;I use this as a smoker only and it's phenomenal for the price. Make sure you do an initial burn at around 350 for at least an hour to set it in first. After that it works like a charm. Took me about 30 to 40 minute to set up, and it's worth it. I use it almost every day now.;;Reviewed in the United States on June 15, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Great Smoker;;Dylan;;;I watched a bunch of YouTube videos on this smoker. For the regular guys needs, this smoker should be more than sufficient. Assembly was a little tricky but not brutal. Once together it seemed very sturdy. It was obvious right from the start that it wasn't going to be an airtight smoker. But for an average type of user like me it really doesn't make much difference. I coated it with olive oil spray on the racks and all over the inside. Then I put about 3 lb or so of charcoal in the offset compartment along with smoke pellets to season the inside for about 4 hours. I actually got the temp up to 400° and even though there were some obvious leaks, it held temperature surprisingly well. I was also able to somewhat control the temperature using the vent on the chimney as well as the pinwheel vent on the offset box. I can see that this unit is really well worth the money. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Do yourself a favor though and make sure to buy or make some kind of cover for it. I'm sure if left in the rain it will probably rust. I am a real Amazon customer. Update: I finally got the chance today to do a full 5-hour cook. It was really windy here. This thing comes up to temperature beautifully fast. Even with the wind howling at over 15 mph I saw very little visible leakage. I was even able to knock down the temperature using the pinwheel vent and the chimney flap. Now that I have it covered and out of the weather I'm hoping that I'll get at least five or more years out of it. This unit way surpasses the old stand up smoker that I used to have. If you're looking for a dependable very economical well-made smoker and Grill this is for you. I promise you won't be disappointed. By the way, the ribs I smoked came out perfect! Update: this thing is still going strong. I've used it three or four dozen times so far and is holding up beautifully. For an economical smoker, I am really surprised at how evenly it holds temperature. I smoked a rack of baby backs today for 4 and 1/2 hours at between 250 and 275 and I swear they were restaurant good. Just thought I'd give an update to reinforce the original review.;;Reviewed in the United States on July 12, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Up in smoke. ;) in a good way! (UPDATE);;MM;;;Do not buy this smoker. I am new to smoking and figured I could get away with a little less expensive smoker to see if it would be a hobby I would enjoy. had I done a little more research id have known this smoker wouldn't work. first off the smoker assembles in many different segments so you have air gaps all over the place. I ran the smoker to season it and couldn't get a steady temp in the chamber due to the smoke pouring out the sides and front and back of the entire smoker. I said to myself I can fix this and went online buying 40 dollars worth of food safe sealer and smoker specific seals Lavalock to be exact thinking this would help...... sealant all over the entire rig and an additional 30 dollars in new thermostat and door clams to hold lid shut (since it is cheap and flimsy). still tried to make it work and had a run this weekend for memorial day, but could never get the smoker past 200 degrees no matter how big the fire was........ All in all, if you are looking for a cheaper option you get what you pay for and could never possibly use this as a real smoker no matter how much you invest modding it up. lesson learned spend money on the smoker and you will reap the rewards of good smoked meats otherwise you'll just be like me and give the dogs a whole brisket cause humans couldn't eat it.;;Reviewed in the United States on May 28, 2019;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;AVOID AVOID AVOID!!!!!!
