A little background first. I have been using an electric smoker since 2004. At this point, I think I've gone about as far with electric as I can go. Honestly, the last few briskets I have done have been excellent and I have even been able to pick up some paying customers. A couple of friends and I are talking about trying to sell our BBQ at some local Farmer's Markets and other such events.
This being said, my family and I had dinner with some friends the other night. The husband smoked a couple of pork shoulders with his offset charcoal smoker. There was a noticeable difference. As much as people have complimented me on my BBQ, I am just not sure I can get to the level of professional excellence with electric.
So, here is what I will need. I really need something that can handle at least 3-4 full briskets at a time. Preferably something that holds temperature reasonably well. Sure, I do understand that adjustments will be needed, but you know what I mean. I live in Fort Worth, Texas, so I don't have to contend with crazy cold winters like other parts of the country. Also, I would prefer something that doesn't rust out within a couple of years.
Do you have any smokers you would recommend? Something that has worked well for you? Suggestions are welcome and appreciated. Thanks!
