The Good-One Marshall is a big combo grill and smoker recommended for hunting clubs, tailgating, competitions, or light commercial use. This cleverly designed charcoal unit uses the same concepts of an offset BBQ smoker, but it works better. There is a rear firebox and grill that has two air intakes and a damper that runs the entire length of the firebox that controls smoke and heat to the smokebox. The wide damper provides much more even heat from left to right that an offset barrel smoker that positions the fire offset to one side. There are also two exhaust dampers at the top of the smokebox. The "spinner" design of the intake and exhaust vents is very clever. The smoke and heat enter the rear of the smoke box along the entire length and circulate around the meat. The large firebox has a 29" x 16.25 grill grate for high heat cooking and four slide out racks in the upper smoker box. Crisp meats and sauce over high heat after you've smoked. You can even grill and smoke at the same time. A model with adjustable charcoal grate is available for better heat control when grilling. Made from 11 and 14 gauge steel, it has two large wheels, two locking casters, a removable ash pan, drip pan and a fold up front work table.

Looked Closely At It
We have seen this product up close and we have also gathered info from the manufacturer, owners, and other reliable sources.
The Good-One Smoker/Grill was founded in 1988 by father and son entrepreneurs, Ron and Larry Goodwin. In March of 2007, Ace of Hearts BBQ Specialties purchased The Good-One product line and partnered with Goodwin Industries, the manufacturer of The Good-One to expand the brand nationally. In 2013 The Good-One was bought by Landmark Manufacturing. Landmark has established a subdivision named Good-One Manufacturing to manufacture and distribute the smokers, charcoal, and flavored woods. Landmark will be manufacturing all models at their factory in Gallatin Missouri where modern fabrication processes have enabled them to reduce the cost of The Good-One while improving quality!
