The Gladiator is Backwoods Smoker's first dry smoker!  Most dry cookers are a headache to use, but the Gladiator has upright design and easy access to the fire box and meat chamber for optimal experience and performance! Not to mention you can use your Gladiator in three different ways: to lay meat flat, to hang meat, or as a grill with the optional Gladiator grill kit.
