Only complaint is it's difficult to get food done in a timely manner when it's really windy and you risk the fire blowing out. Our 17-18 pound turkey came out golden brown on top, crispy, and very moist/juicy. Eating the skin was a little greasy. I thought I got way more meat off my turkey since no part of the turkey "sat" in basting juices to cook. Performance No complaints except the wind blew out our fire the first time we used this. Our first turkey took double the amount of cooking time it was supposed to on the windy day and despite us using the mesh covering. However, other, smaller turkeys and chickens we've done since have had times that went more along the book guidelines for how long they took to get done. Ease of Use Seasoning prior to each use is a bit messy because of the big seasoning chamber. Ease of Cleaning It has big parts that can be difficult to clean but you can burn most things off that would need to be cleaned. Cleaning the basket is really the big hassle. Durability We haven't used this a ton but it seems durable.
