Look. I'm not here to debate you. I was giving my .02 to the OP who now owns an MES which IS electric. He's thinking about a pellet smoker thus the Youtube video. I wanted to give him some good feedback on the smoke level and bark, thus taste, of an offset smoker. At least we agree which is best on taste. Now I'm done with this thread. Moving on.They don't mention electric vs anything. I would never in a thousand years compare an offset smoker to anything else, offset is going to take the cake in flavor every time.
