The mounting bracket is the only drawback I can see, when you alter the bracket to suit your
application, make sure it's a lot thicker, so it lasts a lifetime.
You'll like it, this unit received good reviews.
The Upfold unit is a lot more heavy duty.
Good Luck,

Didn't want to create a new thread, but if I combine a venturi generator running into a pit barrel cooker (small uds) with a temp controlled 1600w electric hotplate I should be ok for small batch hot and cold smoking?

Bumper. I have a Brinkman knock off water smoker (bradly look but coal fired) I have used a 1600w plate and an amazing tube for the past few years and the tube lets me cold smoke (ambient outside temps + 5c). With the burner on full I run at 160f when its 20c outside.
Mine is a Saltan brand.
