Camp Chef Smoke Vault 18" is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value The Smoke Vault 18 was easy to assemble. Parts were easy to identify. Instructions did a great job of walking me through all the way to smoking my first piece of meat. This was my first time smoking anything and the pork loin came out great using a recipe from the website. Next I did ribs and they came out great. Beer can chicken got great reviews as well. The unit holds temperature very well, it is not a gas hog and fairly easy to clean considering whats going on inside there. The unit is all of what Camp Chef says it is. A very nice unit for beginners. I will definitely buy another Camp Chef product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great smoker/great value I received this smoker as a Christmas gift probably 4-5 years ago and use it often. This smoker has been through a lot! Getting blown over several times in our back yard wind tunnel, left uncovered several times and rained on, cover blew off during a wicked winter storm and left for days buried half way up with snow and it still keeps on producing delicious meat! The only thing we've replaced was the cover in all these years. It still fires right up and seems to just sip on propane, a 20lb bottle seems to last us well over a year and we use it probably 5-10 times a season. Cant say any bad about this smoker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Smoker I have owned this for almost 2 years now. I have never had a bad meal while using it. I have smoked just about every kind of meat on it and it comes out tasting better than my favorite barbecue restaurant. I converted mine to natural gas so the convenience of not getting propane tanks. You can literally set this smoker and forget about it. You will only need to add water to the water pan in about 3-4 hours.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great smoker I have had mine about a year. Easy to assemble and easy to use. Grest for smoking deer and I made the best turkey I have ever cooked.(including frying one) Only issue was the thermometer. It was off by several degrees. Had to get a dual thermometer. Once I figured out how to adjust the controls, it does a great job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Smoker I received this as a corporate gift (great company!) and have used it several times with fantastic results - pork butts, brisket, oysters, pork belly. I never used a smoker until I got the Smoke Vault 18" and found it really easy to set up and use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Out door cooking at it's best! One in awhile I would like the 24" model but I am extremely pleased with the 18" one. I smoke salmon about three times a month, ribs every three to six weeks. Chickens (two at a time) once a month. Turkeys occasionally and goose once a year. Brisket a couple times a year Cheese when the smoke starts to billow out. Black cod is a favorite. I have not tried steaks but have done extra thick pork chops. Everything is so much better with the smoke flavor. Fun using different smoke chips and rubs. I have had this for about four years and am still learning. No problem at all getting people to share the out put._x000D_ I made a wind screen to make winter smoking easier and keeping the sun off makes temperature control easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great smoker and oven I have had it 1 year and it is fantastic. I use it to smoke, bake ham, chicken, roasts, pies, muffins, bread, and I can go on. One of the most versatile outdoor cooking systems I have. I use this except for the winter when it is just too cold for me to cook with this outside. I have no issues with the entire system, and it has worked very well and very efficient on propane. It is used weekly and some times several times per week.
