Hello The price for all this high tech smoker is worth every penny! A great value and the quality is there for a long lasting machine! After the quick setup and running thru the start cycle we set the smart phone app for 450 and sizzled 2 Delmonico Steaks with cattle drive sauce and 6 Italian sausages at the same time. For home use of this nice portable a small wooden table did the trick. The good size GMG mat really protects the newly painted deck from any grease spills.
