Received a CS101 cooker for 'free'. The unit did not heat up and the inside looked as if they used it every day, just didn't clean it for a few dozen years. The grease was inches thick.
Since it was a Cookshack, I decided to take a chance and purchase a new heater coil.
The heater coil took 10 minutes to replace, the cleaning took a week.
I had to just sit and smile as I turned on the switch (no dial on mine, just a L M H dial)and the unit began to heat. I guess it means that if I want another unit, I would not hesitate to buy Cookshack. This old unit proves how well these smokers are made. There really is no substitute for "Doing it right the first time"
I think I was rewarded for my faith in Cookshack.
