Hey all! OK after even a cursory look around, it appears that the Masterbuilt Electric smoker, either 30 or 40, is the most common and probably most recommended. Right? So Ace Hardware has the MES 30 Digital for $129 (listed at 149, but includes a $20 discount for the black Friday sale), which seems to be a great deal. Link to deal: http://m.acehardware.com//product/index.jsp?productId=68307136

The other option is to be one of the first 600 people at 5am at a Cabelas and get a free Bradley's Original Smoker.

My husband is leaning towards going to Cabelas at 3am (after we finish our starts-at-midnight outlet mall shopping) and seeing how we do because free is free. Thoughts? What are the pros/cons between them? Which would you do?

Thanks! Kathy

I'd go for the free one, if you don't like it you can always pick up something else.

The only bad thing about a Bradley is you have to use their pucks for the smoke.

Double check that info on that the first 600 get a Bradly smoker free, the TV ad I saw this am mentioned the first 600 in line get a gift that may include a Bradly smoker.

Fill the MES up with concrete and use it for an anchor.

Stand in line and maybe get a Bradley original then use it for a cold smoker, then go to The Sausage Maker site and buy a real electric smoker.

Everyone has their favorite, generally what they use.
