I'm an old "stick burner" from way back. I'm not saying it's better than gas, electric, biscuits, pellets, or anything else out there. But, I feel there's a lot to be said for tradition and doing things as they've been done for generations. And I take a lot of pride in doing it that way. It's just my opinion. That being said, I want to try something new. I'm a DIY'r. Not just with cooking, but everything. I am wanting to try my hand at smoking sausage, bacon, etc... I can regulate my little smoker at 225-250 pretty good and can maintain it as long as my wood lasts. However, when trying to run below 225, I have a terrible time regulating temp. Im thinking of crossing over to electric or gas. It will just be for sausage and bacon and a few other things. I think temp regulation and everything (especially for cold smoking) will be a lot easier to maintain. So, I would like some suggestions. First, gas vs electricp. More along the lines of pros and cons of both. Secondly, specific smoker recommendations. I don't need anything big, and want to keep it under $200-$300. I know to get a good product, you don't need a fancy, expensive set up. My wood smoker is a $149 TSC Red Rock special. I don't want a big argument on here, but rather maybe somethings I may not think about or consider when going with electric or propane. I know I'll get some great input. Thanks in advance, guys.
