Okay, so here's another 1 post guy praising the Orion!
Like the gentleman above me, I also bought one off Woot. I've been eyeing these since they hit the market but couldn't justify the cost. I have a nice full size grill for grilling and I built my own smoker for smoking so I just couldn't bring myself to spend the 100-150 bucks.
Once I saw it on woot I finally pulled the trigger. Boy am I glad I did!
I've not done my own ribs before so I thought that'd be a nice way to break the girl in.
I followed the manual's instructions and cooked for 1 hour 10 minutes. Everyone who tried them said they were absolutely fantastic with a few folks saying they were the best they had ever had (I'm chalking that up to being polite though.)
The only problem I had was that they all broke and fell which I think could be fixed by me stabbing the hangers in farther down on the rib. It wasn't really a problem though as they were fully cooked and really all it did was make those parts nicely braised.
I will say that cleanup was a bit of a pain. Not the end of the world but not as easy as just scraping the down grill grates. Cleanup took maybe 10 minutes or so.
I posted a full series of pictures along with the recipes I used on my flickr page at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bingo2/sets/72157613212994125/
Here are a couple small sized photos. All the pics on my flickr page are full resolution (Click above the pic where it says "All sizes" to see the big ones if you want.

And the results!
I just wanted to drop by and toss in my report on the Orion. As someone else said, it won't replace a full on Super Smoker Rig but it darn well did a great job for us in an hour.
