Having only ever had cheaper simpler open and kettle BBQ's, its noticeably more pleasant to be able to cook in an oven, with the ability to add fuel without having to remove a grill full of meat! Having a flue means you don't get a face full of smoke when the wind changes. For the money its reasonably well made, all the parts lined up and screwed together fine, and the unit does fix to the base, I assume this must have been modified since the other persons review,
Its not the biggest BBQ in the world, but having said that, I had a large pork shoulder, 8 sausages and 4 burgers on at once. My only other criticism is that it could do with being a little higher, as I had to sit it on a platform to get it at a comfortable working height when standing. Maybe its designed to be used from a sitting position? You can see this from the product photo.
