I was the first one to receive a Sherman Cooker on the books other than demo ones over the years. Let me tell you something. This thing is awesome. I am one of the most hardest / Abusive and roughest guy on things I own. This cooker is built like a tank. I used the cooker if not every weekend, every other weekend while racing this summer. Between bouncing around in the bed of my truck for 10,000 miles all summer, or leaving it outside during rain storms Or getting it bright red full of charcoal to warm up at night camping. I CAN’T BREAK IT! Never mind the amount of food we have cooked on it. People in the pits always know they are welcome to use it once it’s going, 100’s and 100’s of pounds of meat has been cooked on it and always taste better than any gas grille. I can’t recommend this Sherman cooker enough to anyone that camps, wants a controlled fire pit for their house or wants to cook tasty food on it. It’s simple, Maintenance free, durable and also has a lifetime warranty! If you don’t have one you don’t know what you’re missing!
