Sorry, the Quickset Charcoal Smoker is a creation of Charbroil. NB
(when it still was made in NB, Texas) never made any such monster.

I don't have any experience with the Quickset Charcoal Smoker but, I
did check it out last year. IMHO, looks very much like two Charbroil
grills (gas) fixed together.

I've only seen it at Wal-Mart which might explain it's origins. I think
it's a less than ideal design for an offset pit. When you open either
section all the heat/smoke looks like it would escape like a grill. At
least with the Silver Smoker you have some of the heat maintained.

The CharBroil Silver Smoker (found @:
http://www.charbroil.com/smokers/index.asp) is like the NBBD but, it's
A LOT more like the NBSS.and (http://www.nbsmoker.com/smokers2.html)

All of these models share a common design but, I can't vouch for what
Charbroil has done to the NB models since closing the plant and moving
production overseas and to Georgia, USA.

Even my model (produced in the Texas factory) shares a lot of
components (grates, wheels, hardware) with the current Silver Smoker.

If I were deciding between the (Char-Broil Quickset Charcoal Smoker or
Silver Smoker), my advice would be to buy the Chabroil Silver Smoker.
