Rated 3 out of 5 by Gary from Decent quality but did expect more from Cuisart 1. It takes longer than 15 minutes to assemble. 2. You need some type of wrench to tighten screws. 3. Assembly instructions are not clear regarding charcoal parts, for example coal grate and pan. Regarding the pan, the vent cut out leads one to believe that that piece should be turned and exposed to air. 4. The fire ring is flimsy and will deform and likely rust and break before the end of the smokers life. 5. The tabs holding the grates are too long resulting in having to spill the water basing making a mess. 6. The assembly latches are misaligned, do not compress tight, and when carrying the assembly it falls apart. I happened to have had the assembly fall apart over a wood floor and the sharp sided legs gouged the floor. 7. The video is cheesy and more a sales pitch rather than a helpful tool that explains how to load, start coals, adjust temperature. Right now I have no clue how the bottom venting system is supposed to work. Also the video and instruction sheet shows a charcoal starter being used and of course that does not come with the smoker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lizsexton from Yummy! We have really enjoyed the Cuisinart Vertical 18" Smoker. The setup was a bit complex for newbies who have never smoked anything before, but we used some You Tube videos and were able to figure it out. We have made a few chickens and a brisket and the meat is just unlike anything you have ever made at home! It is delicious!!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by Amy W from Amazing smoker! I have really enjoyed learning to use the Cuisinart smoker. As a novice, I found the unit extremely easy to setup and get started. I found the units size to be perfect for my small back porch. It fits nicely in one corner and the height doesn't require me to constantly bend over when using. Within the first week, I smoked two briskets and an amazing rack of pork ribs. I highly recommend starting small with a chicken or ribs - a brisket takes a long time and can be tricky until you get the hang of it. The only issues I had include: 1) one of the clips that secures the bottom of the unit did not line up and therefore could not be latched 2) the lid of the smoker is often difficult to secure once the unit heats up 3) the built-in thermometer doesn't seem very accurate and it's hard to gauge the temperature on the lower rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLS13 from Awesome smoker for 1st time user I was extremely excited for this smoker to arrive. I've been wanting to start smoking meat during the summer and with upcoming nice weather, I thought this would be a perfect smoker to begin with. This is a simple smoker with what seems to be the essentials to smoking great meat. It does not have all the bells and whistles but does carry a better price tag for a beginner. It has a thermometer on the outside, easy access vents and a manual to help you start. Of course this is a charcoal smoker but the ability to be able to put wood chips along with it is great. It really does add another element of flavor to the meat. It is a perfect size for just me and my husband. We are able to fit plenty of meat to entertain. I suppose the only bad thing is having to wake up so early so that the meat has enough time to properly cook. But it is so worth it! We have not cleaned it yet because we read it is good to get a patina on it before it's first wash. But I think a good hose down will do the trick. We really love our new smoker!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Huedom from Great Smoker! This is a great size smoker! It is our first and I had a bit of difficulty getting it put together but my husband stepped in and got it set up with no problem. We were able to get a chicken cooked using some tips we found online. We foresee using it many weekends to come! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
