    For those that have much more experience with Q than I, is there a difference in taste between smoking in a MES and smoking in a pellet cooker (or a traditional stick burner or charcoal smoker for that matter)?

    I'm looking to either get an infrared grill for searing briskets (among other things) before smoking (or crisping afterwards) and cooking steaks or perhaps the new FE Cookshack pellet grill that's due any month now.

    Dunno...never used electric at all. But, as far as searing... flames are pretty much required I believe. A hot coal bed, and let the fat catch is the way I have had the best luck. A'la SmokeyOkie.
