Electric smokers

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Hi I have been looking for a while to buy an electric smoker as I do all my smoking on a weber charcoal but with winter coming I struggle holding temps.

Just wondering what people in the UK have, I didn't particularly want one that uses bissquets but if there is no other option then that's what it will have to be.

 

Thanks,

 

Brave.

Hello and "Welcome".  OK!  Before we move on to your question we have to address your statement: "Hi I have been looking for a while to buy an electric smoker as I do all my smoking on a weber charcoal but with winter coming I struggle holding temps."  WAY MORE INFO IS NEEDED!  I smoke in the snow on my Weber Kettle.  So does my friend Wade.  So before you spend money; Let's explore your issues.  We can probably help.  MORE INFORMATION!  :icon_biggrin:  Keep Smokin!

Never used a Weber before, so will bow to those with Experiance in the use of them, but sounds like a welding blanket over the Weber, to help maintain temperatures during cold weather?

MES all the way.

I was looking at electric really so I could hot smoke for say 8 hours and go and do something else while it smoked rather than having to top up with charcoal every few hours.

I had the Bradley counter top. Not bad but they are prone to breaking down from new and I believe they are now discontinued.

I think a couple of the chaps have electric pellet smokers, not sure on the makes though.

Yeah, I have a GMG DB, it's electric control and burns Pellets, Kiska has one also and Wade has its Baby Brother.

Very good, almost set and forget!

I agree with Smokin Monkey GMG Daniel Boone for me, worth the money for set and almost forget LOL!!!

 

Keep the charcoal for fun in the sun with beer!!!!

Do you guys get Masterbuilt in the UK?

post #11 of 14

Nope!! unless we import at silly prices.

 

Amazon UK advertise but they are never available.

Stuff is made in China anyway.  Not sure why Masterbuilt cant import into the UK from China and avoid big tariffs.

I have a Bradley original, and it's great for set and leave, not a big fan of doing big fatty curs in it, as I worry about the fire risk with all that fat flying about.

But great for turkey legs, and I do a lot of fish in it.

Expensive briquettes, there's other options such as a Peetz electric cabinet smoker that are good as well.

Cheers

Marcus

I would agree fully with kiska, I'm in the UK with a weber kettle for summer and GMG DB for all year and the long cooks in summer overnight etc
