We have been cooking many, many years on the professional circuit. We had attended the American Royal several years (6-7 year) prior to using a Gateway Drum Smoker and never received a meat call. The first year we cooked on a Gateway, boom 3 meat calls and we ended up Grand Champion of the invitational. I mean it just doesn't get any easier than that.

I came across Shake 'n Bake BBQ and that was the first time I'd saw a Gateway Drum Smoker. This was right when he had started out. They looked so cool and I just had to have one for myself. So I ordered one, picked it up,  and the next contest I took it to we ended up winning the whole thing. Needless to say I ordered a couple more immediately.
