Having used this type of grill in the past I was familiar and a fan of these "Chicken Flipper" type grills. The Tri-Flame 60 however is a different beast altogether. Never before have I been able to turn the grates with the lid closed and this the Tri-Flame 60 handles this task well. I purchased 2 of these, one patio model and one trailer. The patio model is easy enough for 1 person to get it around and the trailer model is also easy to get around and tows flawlessly. The biggest bonus on the Tri-Flame compared to the competitor's product I used is it's versatility. I've made some of the best ribs using the rib rack option I purchased and also over direct flame using the sandwich grates both with excellent results. I also did do some indirect cooking using the drip pan which came out great and temps held rock steady once I dialed it in. I used wood chunks in the cooking process with some bags of Lump and I just love the flavor profile. We are planning a whole hog in a few weeks which we plan on using the heat deflector/drip pan and I'm confident based on my experience so far that the Tri-Flame 60 will knock it out of the park. Overall, build quality, cooking ability and versatility make this one of my favorite cookers in my fleet of smokers. I love cooking on it and it puts out A LOT of delicious food. Highly recommended. Also want to give a shout out to Dwayne who gave us first rate treatment before, during and after the sale. I look forward to doing more business with the Wellspring team soon.
