This is the best BBQ i've ever owned and i've owned a few.
Good heat, very good at searing on the hotplate
I use it also for low and slow cooking with a smoker box, regulates temperature great.
Good hood and thermometer.
You can fit a lot of food on this and the 50/50 hot plate and griddle is really good.
Super easy to put together.
Super fast heat up.
I would highly recommend. I wouldn't trust the sear a steak test as it is heavily biased to smaller surface area BBQ's and those that use hood down cooking (cough outdoor oven, not a BBQ - Weber)
As with all these types of BBQ's their are cold spots. Though it only takes a little bit of cooking ability and the patience to heat up the BBQ with the hood down to aid in this.
I find it very minor for me.
Relatively pricey, but I do think the product is worth it.
Yes, I recommend this product.
