The Cuisinart COS-244 is a vertical smoker that runs on propane. It has a cooking area of 784 square inches, making it large enough to accommodate a fair amount of food. The smoker is also relatively lightweight at just 40 pounds, and comes with two handles for easy transport. Additionally, the unit comes with a 3-year warranty. One of the best features of the Cuisinart COS-244 is the fact that it comes with its own propane hose and regulator. This means that you won't have to go out and purchase these items separately, which can be a hassle (and an additional expense). The smoker also has porcelain enamel coated components, which helps to protect against rust and wear.
