I have been smoking for 5 years or so, but just deer sausage. I currently own a MES. I have used this smoker for 2 years, and about 500lbs of sausage (plus one turkey). Well it was full of ring bolonga, and the element went out. Master built says that the electric element is non-replaceable, and that I have to buy a whole new cabinet. Well I am now thinking that I don't want to have electric smoker because in my price range the MES is the only smoker that I have found that is well liked, and I want to start doing other types of meat and can't have that element broke all the time. So my question is with a gas smoker will the sausage turn out ok at the temps that a gas smoker will stay at (200-225 from what I have been told)? If so does anyone have expierence with smoke hollow smokers at smoker would come highly rated? Also how do gas smokers work when it is windy? Any info is welcome. Thanks in advance.

Welcome aboard! I am pretty new to smoking but from peoples suggestions here I bought a gosm and am very happy with it. You can order them online from walmart. They sell 2 models one for $99 and one for $157. Definately get the $157 dollar one.

Welcome to the forum. Yes, you will be fine with a gas smoker. I do quite a bit of sausage in mine without problems. Just make sure you get the larger size (ie. 24" wide). I can do 15 pounds of Polish sausage at one time in my Smoke Vault.

Hello Folks,

Just purchased MasterBuilt Digital Smokehouse Model # 20070508 from my local Sam’s Club.

Been smoking for a couple of years – previously using Brinkman Smokers (Charcoal, Electric, and Gas), which I never was satisfied with because I found myself always having to make temperature adjustments and could never obtain consistent results.

One of my neighbors has a 30-inch MasterBuilt Digital Smokehouse and I was impressed with his results – he just sets the temperature/time and never had to be constantly making adjustments to obtain excellent results.

That’s what influenced in purchasing the MasterBuilt Digital Smokehouse Model # 20070508.

Welcome aboard! Could you just get an electric hot and stick in it if you like the smoker?
