Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by keys great smoker after alot of mods
I am rating this product a 3 star. If I was not mechanically inclined and did not no how to weld or have a welder this product would be 1 star I would have had to return it. It came with a 9 inch dent on the bottom of the chamber under the door I had to bang out. than the angle iron for the back grill support fell off. multiple gaps in fire box and not much welding that stayed in tack. I welded up the fire box adding some angle iron to seal door and lid better. I also added a piece of 3 inch exhaust pipe to make fire box breath and drain ashes out the bottom into a bucket. I added piece of expanded metal to the fire tray to hold wood better. added a lower longer smoke stack and a piece of sheet metal to kick smoke lower plus a piece of expanded metal between fire box and cooking chamber to keep food from rolling off grill the gauge didn't work so I added 2 one on each side of cooking chamber. after improvements 5 star. so I am rating it in between at a 3.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ryan So far so good!!
I am very happy with my grill, so far I have had no problems with it at all. The only thing I have noticed is that it takes a good amount of charcoal to keep the temps up, but it is a large grill and that is to be expected.

the grill was not assembled properly at the store because the manufacture failed to ship all of the parts. the store was excellent in assisting us with parts until we could get them from the manufacturer. the manager and staff were excellent. I am waiting on the parts so I can finish assembling my smoker

Had Smoker delivered to my local Home Depot. Boxes were in perfect condition. Easy to assemble. Have only used it once but can tell the temperature is maintained inside smoker. Does need a lot of charcoal to get to that point but once there the heat inside is consistent which was what I was looking for. So I am very happy with purchase.

I've had this for a couple of months now and have done a few smokes on it. So far, it does a decent job at maintaining temperature and I have no complaints about the BBQ I've made in it.
It's a great unit for the price. You'd have to get something more than 2x the cost of what HD sells this one for to get anything better.
This thing is HUGE. I can smoke two full briskets in there and still have room left over.
The paint on the firebox will flake off after the first use. Pick up a wire-brush and a can of black high-temp BBQ paint when you get this. After it has cooled off, wire-brush the areas where the paint flaked and give it a couple coats of high-temp paint and you're good-to-go.

I have cooked on the BBQ Circuit for years. Now that I have retired from that it was finally time to find something for the backyard. The Farmer's Grill has not let me down. I have had this for about a month and have cooked on it at least three times a week. We have grilled steaks, pork chops, shrimp, sausages and salmon. We have smoked brisket, ribs, hams, chickens, pork loins, Cornish game hens, salmon, oysters and lamb. I found a good supplier of different woods in my area and now am experimenting with all types of flavors. This grill will not disappoint you. Make sure you cure or season it before the first use and you will enjoy it for year's to come. I think this is a great buy for beginners who want to get involved and the experienced that still like tweaking their cooking styles. I highly recommend!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wizzy Great product for the price.
My wife and I put this together in a very short amount of time the evening it arrived. I haven't had any issue with the welds as I have seen on some of the other reviews. Its a lot nicer and larger than my old Char-Broil grill/smoker combo and the medal is alot thicker than my old smoker/grill. Cooks great so far and is easy to clean after use. The only problem I found was locating a good grill cover to fit "this size" of grill (80" from handle to handle) for a decent price... what I did fine was that my ATV cover made by Classic Accessories for $29.94 from Wal-Mart works great and looks as if it was made for our new smoker/grill. Craftsmanship is by far the best I've use in this price range. I would highly recommend this grill/smoker to anyone who enjoys out door cooking.
The only thing I didn't like at first was it didn't have an easy way to clean out the burned ash's, like an ash catcher, but I solved that problem by using 3 "EZ Foil" casserole pans, 11 3/4" - 9 1/2" under the charcoal racks..... problem solved.
