This controller allows you to manage the food temperature via the probe without having to be standing in front of the smoker. Reaching 300 degrees, this unit benefits greatly from the efficiency of the heating and the window in the front. You can insert wood chips from the outside.

The electric elements consumes 800 Watts, to maintain a consistent smoke in the wood chip chamber. Side and top dampers allow you to dial in the airflow as well as the internal smoke density. The foam insulated internal walls also help maximize heat retention for added efficiency.

What reviewers didn't like

The window isn’t cleaned quite as easily as many other parts of smokers, so if you don’t like cleaning this might become troublesome as time goes on and you use it more and more. Some people have been concerned about the low wattage of the heating element.
-
There really isn’t enough horizontal space to accommodate a large brisket. You might even struggle to fit a large rack of pork ribs. The grill grates themselves can be a little sticky and might need some extra elbow grease when you scrape them down. Inferior warranty. Small water pan.
The only problem I found in this smoker is when I place it in my patio, it doesn't fit properly.
The heating element breaks in a few uses. The temperature probe cannot be removed when cleaning the smoker. The remote doesn’t sync well with the smoker. It’s not easy to clean.
