Poor Design

Although it was specified that it is made of “heavy duty” steel but the whole thing was found to be weak in structure and not sturdy at all. The racks and hinges were loosely placed that is why it gets broken easily. The metals were also found to be thin and unfinished which results to poor performance of smoking jobs. In terms of identifying its temperature, there were some issues regarding broken gauges and it is poorly attached to the cooker which defeated its purpose.

In other observations, the whole cooker failed to come up with the desired temperature and aside from that there were also leaking issues of smoke resulting to poor cooking and smoking performance.
