We are sure there is a smaller smoker out there.. but were not so sure that there is one that is as cool as this one!! This little guy is packed with 250 watts of power and is one of those smokers that you can pack in your travel trailer or motor home. All the coolness of the bigger smokers.. but compact and efficient. Yep... This unit is usually shipped out factory direct but if you want to save on shipping costs stop on by!!!
