Deluxe Offset BBQ Smoker is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from smoke, cook for a crowd. I bought this grill a year ago, am I glad I did. I/we cook for 12 every day at our house, no not on the grill every day. When we entertain we equal about 20 to 24 people, this grill can handle all of us. Best I've used.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good smoker/grill I bought this grill a year ago and it's an OK grill.The offset smokebox however is a different story. The first time I used it after seasoning the fire box lost all the paint on the outside and started to rust, eventually rusting all the way through the bottom. So much for using it as a smoker...now all I have is an expensive grill.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not built to last I bought this a year ago for my husband for fathers day. I will have to say he was so proud of it. After seasoning it & putting it together he would use it almost every weekend. We also bought a really nice cover for when not in use & used it religiously. We live in IN so during the cold winter we stored it in the garage. Now 1 year later I'm having to buy another one due to paint coming off & rusting. This grill is wonderful if you know how to use it to smoke the foods you cook on it. The only draw back is the quality of the metal. :( So very sad & disappointed. To Char-Broil I have not opened a service ticket, not sure what that would do for me. I'm sure you won't replace it but even if you give me credit for a new one the ones that I have looked at are still the same thin metal that will do the same. Sorry I do have a gas grill from you that I love & have had for 3 years now & is very durable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wouldn't mind paying more for better quality I have had the offset smoker for amount 2 months now and seasoned it according to the instructions. I enjoy using it and all my guests have commented on how much better the food tastes over a gas grill. While the entire grill leaks like crazy when you are smoking, my results so far have been good. As others have said, the paint is peeling off from heat. The other problem I am experiencing is the charcoal grate and pan when using the unit as a regular BBQ. The first grate and pan warped badly due to heat. Char-Broil replaced both pieces without question. However, on the Fourth of July I had about 30 people over for BBQ. When I went to clean the BBQ the next morning, I found the brand new charcoal grate warped again after a single use. It is being replaced again and I was now told to try using less charcoal. We shall see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smoker & Grill I bought one a couple years ago and have really enjoyed it. I think its reasonable priced compared to other Smoker & Grills. One of the things that attracted me to it was all-in-one Smoker & Grill. I would recommend this grill! Very nice!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good gift Got one for birthday.It is a great grill except for the temperature gauge which needs to be numerical and not just words. It makes is alittle harder to smoke anything on without knowing the actual temp inside.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I bought this grill about two months ago.... The paint on the smoker box basically peeled off from the heat... And the actual grill it has so many gaps... I had to come with ways for it to hold the heat.... It's just a lot of work for smoke meat..... Yes it is a project...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from never again This smoker was a gift from my wife a little over a year ago. It has been properly seasoned and always under a cover when not in use. All the paint on the smoke box is completely gone and the interior is starting to flake of in big pieces. After the 4th use the grate in the smoke box started to deteriorate. As of today it is completely gone. I had to make a new one out of expansion metal. This may be an ok grill for the occasional use but anything beyond that I wouldn't recommend it.

I purchased an offset smoker. I built a small charcoal Fire and in five minutes the smoker had lost all of its paint and looked 10 years old. Complete piece of garbage!
