I'm looking to buy an electric unit. I have found temperature control to be a bigger issue on my charcoal smoker as well as limited to time to monitor the unit.
I'm looking for recommendations.
I've owned a Masterbuilt 30" electric digital smoker for over 3 years. I only use wood pellets in the A-MAZE-N Pellet Smoker which was designed for the Generation 1 model. Very happy with my setup.I'll put the "Q" that comes out of my smoker up against any chain BBQ restaurant and I bet mine comes out on top.
Congrats and enjoy. When I had my electric I found out that the hickory can be a lot stronger than when using with charcoal. I would go light with hickory and add apple. Apply wood about every 30-40 min for no more than 2 1/2 hrs or they will be too tasting.
Just bought the model 2D, it arrived today. Very impressed with the build quality and I can't wait to get started smoking with it.
I am really enjoying my MES. My daughter graduated from high school and we had a family barbeque for her. Smoked pork burgers with sausages on the grill with tater salad. I think i may have "sold" one MES as one family member very impressed.
I've done both pork and beef ribs, burgers, brisket and pork chops.
