Avoid Camp Chef. Recently got a Camp Chef XXL for vertical hang smoking sausages. The smoke is poor compared to a stick burner offset. The auger feeds from the center and the hopper geometry leaves pellets on the sides so even if you think there are pellets in there, it can cause flame outs. I've got about 10 cooks on it and the paint is already bubbling and peeling off. Their app is unreliable at best also. My brother has a Recteq and doesn't have any of these issues and has much better smoke. Still not an offset level smoke but better. Another neighbor has a regular hortizontal camp chef and has the paint and auger issues as well. I'll keep the camp chef for now but will only be using it for hanging sausage smokes.
