Hi Everyone, My name is Dennis and I live in Long Beach, CA. I currently own a CharBroil Big Easy Smoker/Roaster/Grill and have been on the hunt for an electric smoker but just haven't pulled the trigger yet. I've come across a Cookshack SM009 for sale that the owner says he bought in 2003 and has only used about 10 times. My question is, does anyone know what the lifespan of these usually are and/or what other issues/items I need to take into consideration? Thanks in advance!
