Thread Starter 

I'm Norm, living in Tijuana, Mexico, where we have a childrens home and bible institute. I have been using charcoal for smoking for years, but recently my wife bought me a Cajun Injector electric, and so far have used it once for ribs and a tri-tip, with good results. I have heard a number of complaints about short element life since receiving the smoker, but have also read one review that said his problem wasn't the element, but the connector. Also, most reviews said they could not find the replacement part, but I have found a listing for the element at as for Masterbuilt 30"). Hope I don't need them. Am enjoying reading entries on the forum.

Newbie with the Cajun Electric here as well.


Did your smoker heat up to 225F and stop when doing the initial curing? I've been through two of them today that have went super hot without stopping.


Thanks Baja!

No, mine seemed to do okay- I just had trouble reading the readouts, as the sun was shining and the readout isn't real bright for outdoors.

Hello Norm and welcome to SMF! Congrats on the Cajun Injector...I have an MES 40 and love it!

Thanks for the info on the parts, that's a great help.


Sounds like you might need to provide a shade umbrella for the display!
