Reply to "Discontinuing some models"

Before purchasing, what I believe is the perfect smoker for me (SM020), I read this thread. I later found a SM020 offered at Cabelas.com for sale. I assumed it was old stock and I was fortunate enough to get my hands on one before they were all gone. However, I was surprised to find a manfactured date of Aug 2010 on my smoker when it arrived in Sep 2010. This leads me to believe that Cookshack has an exclusive agreement with Cabelas to provide this model. I for one am very thankful that this unit is still being built and sold. It represents a fantastic value for a full featured quality smoker. You can not find a smoker with near this quality, 18" width racks, and digital controls for this price. Since there are cheap knockoffs which TRY to compete with the Cookshack name, it surprises me that Cookshack doesn't continue to offer this model for sale themselves, or at least provide a link to the Cabelas site to notify people of this offering. I would have prefered buying this unit through Cookshack if it would have been for sale. However, I guess Cookshack still benefits with their units being sold by other vendors. I almost didn't find this deal, and for a very brief moment almost considered going to the darkside and buying a cheap clone. Whoa, I am so glad that I didn't make that mistake. Thanks again Cookshack for making a wonderful product that is made in the good ole USA!!!
