OK ,,, I posted about doing summer sausage , that turned out great IMO .
After reading some of the post , and horror stories of this unit , I was wondering if I should just return it .
I decided to do some chicken thighs since my kids had bought me a " secret meat rub " from a shop down on the river front to " use on ur new smoker Dad "
I mean really ...you kidding me ,,, they came out awesome . I do have knowledge of smoking , but new to electric . Had my doubts about this . The rub was awesome , but the bite of the smoke was so good . Yes the temps seemed to be off , but if you have an idea of time ,,, smoke color and flow , and the smell ,,, WOW .
I got my 150 bucks worth already .
