Deluxe BBQ Smoker Grill 1280 is rated 2.8333333333333335 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes a licking, keeps on ticking I've had this Char-broil smoker for 10 years. It has lived in pretty rough conditions (uncovered and unprotected for about half of those 10 years in Texas heat and rain) and is still in good working order. I did have to replace the thermometer a few years ago, but after countless rain storms, I think that's just to be expected. It has a nice sized firebox that can fit up to medium sized logs. This is a great smoker for pork ribs, turkey, chicken, sausage, etc. Maybe not ideal for a brisket, but works fine and I've done it on several occasions. As it is a wood smoker, general good practice I've found is to check the temperature roughly every 30-45 minutes. If you make adjustments (especially if you stoke the firebox with more wood), watch it closely for a few minutes to make sure your temperature doesn't spike too high. Bottom line: for an entry level smoker, this is a reliable and durable product. This took me from a barbecue neophyte into a reasonably experienced cooker. Thumbs up from this Texan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flavor/$ : THE BEST I have had mine for 17 years, no lie. Bought the grill first and soon graduated to the firebox. Cannot begin to count the number of successful backyard meat & veggie preps: two, sometimes three times a week in the summer. Smoked turkeys around Thanksgiving, hot- or cold-smoked salmon, you name it. Yes, the interior coal tray is FINALLY beginning to rust through, but after 18 years, in our Northwest climate?!? Yes, it leaks smoke -- but just add a stick of wet alder (or cherry, or apple...): such a sweet smell, and plenty of heat. Would I try commercial cooking with the unit? No, it requires attention -- but who cares? That's part of backyard bbq for me. I will be in the market for another, soon.
