Todd from Houston, TX. Never smoked before, bought a MES #20070111. Seems no one has this model yet. Found it at Sears for $100 shipped. Im hoping since im in Houston where it can practically be as hot as a smoker outside, that this uninsulated model will work for me. I notice people tend to buy the insulated models. I know 0 about smoking. I just learned a little about the mailbox mod and the pellets. The pellets for cold smoking, I will wait to do that later. Waiting for the unit to arrive and will season it. Will see what this smoking culture is all about. All I know is everyone who comments about owning a smoker says it was the best thing they ever bought. Heard this way too many times!

Welcome aboard Todd, and welcome to a very satisfying pastime. Congratulations on your new smoker. I am not personally familiar with electric smokers, but my 18 inch Weber WSM is uninsulated and I haven't had trouble with it not being insulated. I do use it in the barn, though, and that will make a difference.
