    I've learned over the years about what I call "training appliances"  My first real understanding of it was in BBQ's.  I went with the cheaper models until I finally got my Weber.  That is outlasting everything I've ever bought.  My Mom and Wife got me a Masterbuilt 30" from QVC because I wanted to get into smoking meat.  Great little unit.  Cleaning is a pain though, the seal started coming off after a year, the capacity was too small for the department q I wanted to do, etc.   So after a ton of research I plunked down 2K for this smoker and cart, cold-smoke baffle and a nice cover.  Now, people may say using a full electric is cheating, but I'm not one to tend a fire all night long.  I've gotten cold smoked cheese down just as well as pastrami, brisket and ribs.  It always comes out good.  4-5 ounces of wood gives me about 4 good hours of smoke, then about another two of faint tbs.  This holds temp like a champ, the probe works great for setting for temperature, and even goes into a hold mode.  I love it, and can easily do four 12lb briskets or about 40 lbs of tuna.
