So here's my conundrum....
I have $200 worth of Home Depot gift certificates to use on a smoker. I've been smoking on my Brinkmann electric for four years now, but alas, it is no longer. I really liked the ease of working with an electric smoker, mostly for the fact that I could get it going overnight and only have to get up once or twice to check it. It was also perfect for the deck of my townhouse which is overcrowded to start with. I will however be moving into a full-sized house at some point in the next year or two. So basically I'm looking for a decent unit to tide me over until I have enough room to build/buy a bigger smoker.
I'm looking for some thoughts on the following electric smokers. I have read the reviews, but I wondered what would be said about comparing them. Are any of these worth my time? Or should I just stay with what I know and save the extra cash for my next project? Thanks in advance for all your input.
