Never use a smoker indoors (even electric). Your smoke detectors won't like that. Also pay close attention to clearance requirements provided by the manufacturer - like all smokers, this unit's exterior gets very hot - so best to keep children and pets away while operating.
use dry chips only do not use wet chips, or use a pre-smoker tube (I have 4 smokers and I use a pre smoker in all of then be for I start smoking the meat., I have found out for elect. smokers dry chips work the best, and wet chips work in propane the best. I have been smoking for 22 years and I still learn something new every time I use them, try not to smoke over 250 degrees, the longer you smoke the more smoke flavor) I smoke from 125 to 250 degrees depending on what I am smoking and the smoke flavor I want, remember different woods give different flavor. Hope this helps as you learn you will love it.
The racks are about 14" by 14"
only if you use a pre-smoker tube made for the pellets, this unit is make to use wood chips.

As a consumer, I don't know but if you call Dyna-Glo customer service at 1-877-477-4768 they can probably tell you.
It does have Bluetooth and is pretty easy to connect to the Dyna-Glo app. I did notice that the range is somewhat limited compared to other bt devices I use, however.
