Hi to all, name is Buddy. I'm from Lexington SC. I never knew there was such a forum. I am so glad I found this place. I have an old electric Brinkman Gourmet and a Smokey Mountain Gas that still serve me well. I have been looking for a new electric smoker and have found lots of valuable information here. I am looking at three models at the moment.... the MES 40... the Bradley w/ 6 shelves .....and the Cajun Injector. Feel free to chime in with Pro's and Con's of any of these cause I'm still on the fence. So far I like parts of each of them I wish I could pull all the good out of each and make my own version. I want to try my hand at cheese and bacon. And the FATTY sounds like like my next favorite. This place has got me excited about smoking all over again.
