My MES died in the middle of smoking 15 pounds of pork for the family memorial weekend. So now I have to decide if its worth trying to fix the smoker or just buy a new smoker. So far all I know is the heating element is not heating. I am guessing it's possibly the theromastat. I am thinking I may just upgrade to a better smoker.
So here is where I need advice:
Is this a common or easy fix on my MES?
I like the electric smokers and the digital theromastat, so what is a good unit to go with?
Am I making a mistake going with an electric smoker? I am not a pro and want the ease of the electric models.
Thanks in advance
