I received the ad for Bass Pro Shops Black Friday sale and they have a Masterbuilt 30" electric smoker in there for $179. That's $150 off the normal price. I read some reviews and the old one was very poor, but the updated model for 2012 seemed to fix those issues. So then I read a bit more on some Bradley models and those seemed to get better reviews all the way around. But they also cost 4-500 dollars.
So my question here is 2 fold as I will not use this much.
1. Does anyone use an electric smoker? What brand? Recommendations?
2. Is it worth spending more money on one that is not on sale for very occasional use?
Here is a link to the one that will be on sale for $179 over Thanksgiving.
