Likes: appearence,

Dislikes: hard to load,wood has to be very small,air control knob gets very hot,damper control not very good has a couple holes in it compared to the old styles which had none,4-5 hours load time is very weak,ash pan small,not very air tight,burner on the top gets in the way when loading and is easy to burn yourself,this top re burners makes the area to load wood very small and hard to load,can only load a max. of 2 small pieces of wood.
