I bought one about a 2 weeks ago after seeing it a couple times at Menards. I looked high and low on the web for info and finally found this thread.
Assembly was pretty easy but the fit was not very tight between the ash pan and Kamado bottom. It latched tight but I could still see a small amount light coming in, maybe my ash pan is warped?
I started it up anyway and got it extra hot to burn it in for about an hour and then tried to damper it down with the vents but they had little effect on reducing the temp. I was hoping that it would be like my Weber Smokey Mountain and quickly respond to any damper changes, nope. Now its back to winter in SD so I have not had another chance to use it. The top vent needs to be tighter as it blows around in the slightest breeze, I will ad a washer to fix that.
So the jury is still out for mine.
