The top does not go on tightly without a lot of manipulation. The temperature dial is a cheap "Warm - Hot" gauge. The body is not round. Thin metal As with so many things I buy in Amazon, I try to check the ratings and only purchase 4 to 5-star items. I didn't this time, much to my regret. I do NOT recommend this expensive piece of junk.

I smoked my first rack of ribs today on my electric water smoker. Read the directions as they have some very good suggestions. I followed the directions exactly, and my ribs turned out nearly perfect. They would have perhaps been a little better if I had taken them off an hour sooner, but were still very good. I was skeptical that 2-3 chunks of wood wood be enough to add a nice smoky flavor to the meat, but it was plenty. I started with 3 chunks, and added two more 1 1/2 hours later. I added water and 1 cup of apple juice to the water pan, and the ribs were moist and fell off the bone. I was also surprised that the ribs had a nice dark bark to them as well, since I read that this wouldn't happen with an electric smoker. So far I am very pleased with my purchase, and look forward to serving many more smoked meats to friends and family this summer!

It was pretty clear this was a return item as it was not in its original packaging. That said, it all seemed fine. However, I have used it 4 times now. The worst part it the way the top fits. When you fit it inside the main section, it is very very difficult to remove. since it is good to check on the progress of the cooking, and things are hot by then, it is a little dangerous prying the top off to see inside. I have an older Mecco, better made, but to old to replace the heating element. I never had a problem with removing the top, and yet is sealed well keeping the smoke in. Otherwise, for the 4 times I have used this newer unit, it seems to do what it is supposed to do.

This smoker was defective right out of the box. Before use I had to drill holes and search for bolts that were never installed at the factory. However, it will smoke pretty well after some painful assembly.

This is the second unit we ordered as a gift. We held it unopened for a birthday party which was beyond the acceptable return period (30) Days) We could not return it. As it turned out, there were no nuts to complete the assembly and our birthday girl had to call Meco for assistance to send the missing parts. In addition,there were no wood chunks as a starter as advertised. The package looked like it might have been sold to another customer and returned.
My absolute worst Amazon experience.

The lid does not fit inside the base section. There are even stops build to support the lid. I DID get the lid inside the base, but it took all my strength to get it off again. Definitely would not work if food was in it. The inside diameter of the base and the outside of the lid measured exactly the same.

I had to drill my own holes to finish install, the lid is so tight that you have to pull hard. I got burned from it and burned on this purchase. I purchased over the winter and obviouslly can't return now. Only used once. Its a horrible design also. Has no proper air flow

I received this smoker today, that I ordered last weekend. I purchased one that had been repackaged for $149.99 from Amazon Warehouse Sales.

This is the second electric water smoker I've purchased - the first was an orange enameled one as a gift for my youngest son back in 2008. This one was easier to assemble and all of the parts fit nicely together. I read a couple of reviews that complained about excess smoke loss around the doors - the reality is, this smoker may be too well sealed for smoke ... You want to keep fresh smoke flowing so that the smoke doesn't get stale and affect the flavor of the smokee!! It took me all of about an hour to assemble - partly because I washed the sticky oil off the brackets and legs in hot, soapy water before installing them!!

I wanted SS for the longevity of life, and this smoker did NOT disappoint at all!! The only parts that a aren't SS are the wood handles, heating element and electrical controls and wire!!

The way this is designed, the floor pan rests on the legs and will not hold water if left out in the rain!! All of the parts and brackets fit as they should for easy assembly and the body seam was perfect - they even designed it so that two of the hanger brackets and one leg fasted at the seam, camouflaging their presence with the side rivets - VERY well designed!! At first glance, it looked as if the body was bent like a teardrop on the bottom end - the leg that attaches on the seam, actually results in pulling the bottom end round!!

One thing that surprised me - this smoker has a heat control, which is something I was going to add as a modification because I hadn't seen anything about it having an adjustable heat control.

The list price on the smoker is something like $285, but it can easily be found for $199.99, and with the fit, finish, design, style, ease of assembly and temp control, this is a high end smoker and worth the price of admission!! I highly recommend THIS smoker in stainless steel at least, as a first class smoker!!

One word of warning though - if you buy one, DO NOT connect it to an extension cord that IS NOT at least of the same gauge cord as the cord on the smoker - using a light weight extension (as most people usually do) WILL CAUSE overheating of the temp control unit - and that will cause it to melt or otherwise malfunction!!!!
