hey man!! I have owned a "bullet" brinkman electric since 2007. The reviews are not so good. Me personally? I think the heating element is 1500 watts, not 800. Comes with water pan, and the cost is 80 ?I did ribs on the top shelf last weekend, and had 2 couples come over for taste testing. 3 hours on the smoker, 1 hour @ 200F on the weber gas grill in foil wraps. How good was it????????? Ive been asked to cater a 20-30 person cow branding ina couple weeks. im with chef willie on the flimsy 800 wt electric yer looking at. Now, the gas deal , I cant reply there.
Im gussing, with gas you can adjust the temps and really getta great product on the end. I also hava nuther back up propane tank, in case I run out on the main tank? But its one of the 2 1/2 dinky tanks. I also use that little one for gas stove's
hope this helps amigo. CHEERS !!!!!!!!!!
