    Smokers ?'s

    Ok so there is no place for this to have a discussion. Maybe we need a food section or something. I am looking to buy a electric smoker. This one:

    https://www.amazon.com/Masterbuilt-2...=pd_sbs_86_18?
    _encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=JFC1FHRX5N34KDJ65AG8

    Not interested in the pellets or charcoal versions. It seems the heating process is tedious at most and you have to baby sit the thing. I have been looking at the Masterbuilt with the remote RF. Anyone use these or have dealings with them?

    Ok...let me give you some info on these smokers. I had one.....Had.....they work great, but the heat breaks down the wires and connections and they eventually start dying. Mine happened with about 10lbs of Brisket in it....had to finish it in the oven. Now...if you do research, some folks drill the rivets out, re-wire them and put it all back together, but I just couldn't see doing that as nasty as the thing gets once it starts accumulating "smoke'. other than that, it worked great and I smoked for about 2 years i it befor it died. I'll be getting another one this year.......

    It's a little late now, but WalMart put almost all of their smokers on sale at about 1/2 price this fall. I bought a $150 grill for $74. They had some high-dollar electrics at the same mark down.

    So should I be looking into another heat source other than electric? It appears that other than electric the heat is hard to control Maybe I m missing something. it isn't like I will be setting the temp and leaving it alone. Still researching these out. That was why I posted here.

    I like the electric ones for ease of operation. You have to add wood chips about every 15-20 minutes for the first 2 hours..after that, the meat doesn't absorb much more smoke, so at that point, it is set it and forget it...not to sound like Ron Popeil.

    eventually, i'm getting a smoker from Langs.......

    most likely this one..... 48" Deluxe Lang Smoker Cooker

    I have a CookShack smoker and love it. It holds 35lbs but i have smoked 6 pork butts at once about 44lbs. Its electric and ranges anywhere from 140 to 350 degrees. Mine is the Super smoker modle with three shelf inside. I buy the apple wood hunks from them but because its air tight it uses very little wood. Last July 4th i smoked a prime rid. cooked at 220 till internal temp was 140 then lowered smoked temp to 145 and let it run 5 hours and it was better than any resturant. I use Mesquite or Hickory with beef and Apple or Cherry with pork. CookShack makes alot of professional smookers. good Luck and enjoy
