I’ll add some more info later for you all. I’m pretty exhausted at this point from the SF letdown and all the hustle last night get it returned and this home and setup. I got it home and seasoned and that’s it so far. About all I can really say at this point is this sucker is heavy.Tell me more.
The Matador is actually a gas low kind of kettle without a lid.I got an email from Rec Tec about a redesigned Matador coming out although it's not a smoker. Also their 590 and 340 don't have a stack, they have back slots. Need to buy deflectors to use it in the rain.
