I have tried two smokes two days in a row. The temperature reaches desired setting for a few minutes then starts falling. I’m very disappointed in the quality of this Weber Smoker. Not what I expected for this price. I would recommend that anyone thinking about this purchase would wait until all the bugs are worked out. I thought better of Weber on this release but they are no better than any other commercial company. All about the dollar. I think I am going to dispute the AMEX charge at this point. I can’t even get in contact with customer service.
