The main problem I have, in building a smoker, is that propane has more than doubled in price over the last 2 years, so it is ridiculously expensive. Electric smoker is the way I am leaning. However, out power here is extremely unreliable and is very often off for days at a time.
The temperature rarely, if ever, drops below 50 degrees and is rarely over 85 degrees. We live in a high mountain jungle, 60-85% humidity consistently and up to 100% at times. We get 300+ inches of rain a year.
So those are some of my parameters. I will be reading the forums looking for a good vertical wooden cabinet smoker. If anybody has any advice or ideas please chime in!
