NEVER GOING BACK.

I can't say enough positive about this drum. I was extremely skeptical and honestly mulled the purchase over for a very long time. Let's face it, these things are not cheap. I finally folded and pulled the trigger on one. I wanted to cook the basics before I wrote a review. I've done a few batches of chicken thighs and quarters, along with sausage. Yesterday I cooked a 9lb pork butt and could not believe the flavor this thing delivered. Just finished eating St Louis style ribs and they were some of the best I've had. I come from rear fired and stick burners. This thing blows both of those out of the water in regards to flavor, in my opinion. Also, it just holds it's temp like a champ. Filled up the basket, got a bed of coals down, tossed in a couple chunks of wood, set the vents and it has yet to stumble. Just sits there and purrs right along. Even my first cook was a breeze. Its almost like cooking on a pellet cooker, but with wood and charcoal. Amazing! I'm very happy with my purchase and I'm thrilled that I don't have to babysit this thing. It will hold a ton of food also. I'd also like to mention its very asthetically pleasing and rock solid. Even the UPS guy had a fit over it. Nothing but positive things to say here. Never going back to my prior methods. I've found my new cooker. Thanks for a wonderful product.

PHENOMENAL

I'll tell you this. There isn't enough stars I can give the gateway drum. Compared to other smokers, it is by far the best to use, and easiest to manage. Not to mention best looking. Look at this beast, huge surface area, lots of functionality, durable. Fast cooker. You don't need to wake up 12 hours earlier for brisket, tops 5 hours for brisket (good competition level brisket) ribs in 2 hours as promised. Also there isn't a better looking drum smoker out there, your friends will be jealous. I know mine are, up here in Canada no body has a charcoal smoker, let alone a drum smoker. This is also easy to lift, at 150 lbs empty one man could lift it, two safely for sure. Shipping packaging is very good as well. The drum should arrive without a scratch on it. High build quality, will rust if you don't follow proper seasoning instructions (lot of those available on Youtube). Thanks gateway, this product is sublime.

Great Grill & Smoker

I was on the fence with buying a can, but after cooking on one, it's going to be a more front shelf cooker! I love my Pellet grill and the ease of setting the temp and watching it on the app, but my new ICP is more rewarding. Not only with a more smoke flavor, but controlling temps is so easy. You can cook low and slow, or hot and fast. Loving it so stop guessing and get one! Thanks #KCGrillingCo for recommending it to me.
