In the market for an Electric Smoker. Need advice for newbie smoker.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I've recently become intrigued by the new electric smokers.  I have absolutely no smoking experience.

 

I have a few questions:

 

1.  Is electric smoking legite?  Or is it simply an outdoor oven?

 

2.  I am familiar with the MES 30 digital and the MES 40 digital/window (been looking at it -- never have seen one in action)

 

3.  would like to consider options/brands that offer great results, with easy cleaning for the beginner.

 

Thank you for any info.

Why would it not be legit?  You can't use electric in a competition, but you're not competing

Lots of post on SMF about the MES 30 & 40

CookShack & Smokin Tex make good units as does Bradley and Masterbuilt.  For the money($299 at SAMS Club), it's tough to beat the Masterbuilt 40"

 

Thank you for any info.

There are many MES users on this forum including myself. I've seen some impressive smokes posted here that are done with an MES and have done a few that have turned out awesome as well. Use the search tool and look up MES and see some of the smokes people do. Also check out the ECB(el cheapo brinkman) or master forge the Lowes sells. I haven't used either but I've seen many good smokes on here from an ECB.

I would suggest you spend some time reading all the different forums and the WIKIs.

Ask questions and use the handy dandy search tool for specific interests!!

Take the awesome free E-Course!!!

Have a great day!!!

As Todd said the MES at Sam's is hard to beat.

 

I just picked one up yesterday myself.
