Hello everyone. I am brand new to this site and forum and wanted to get your advice. I currently have a charcoal Char Broil smoker and it works great for some things but I do not like that I am unable to control the temperature very well. I also had a Brinkman charcoal smoker before that as well and while I like the flavor of charcoal, it was tough to keep the temperature constant and it was difficult to check the meat when you had multiple trays. It takes constant supervision and I would much rather have a more even cooking temperature and time so I feel like an electric smoker is for me. (Would rather not deal with propane)
A friend of mine has a Smoke Hollow 30" smoker and I like it so far but it does not have as much room as I would like. I would like to be able to fit 5-6 butts or a few racks of ribs without having to cut them in half. I am looking for an electric smoker under $200 that has plenty of room for these items. I havent been able to find a site that strictly recommends/reviews/compares smokers so I found this site and wanted to know your recommendations.
What smokers do you currently use and what do you like about them? Also what did you pay for it?
Thank you in advance for the advice! I will definitely be using this site more often!
