I have had a combo charcoal/propane/electric bullet smoker for about 4 years and have done salmon, jerky, pork shoulder, and ribs. Most things have turned out OK and definitely eatable. I will be getting a new Masterbuilt electric smokehouse tomorrow. I know it is not a manly wood burning smoker but it should be good for what I want to do...easily control the temp and make some hassle free good eats.

Hey Elkhorn, I am sure you will be happy
You probably already have, but check out the forum for electric smokers. The bottom line is you're happy and the food is awesome


Be sure and share your experiences after you break in the new rig

We just smoke food it doesn't matter what we smoke it in. You don't have to make excuses for what you cook in. It's not the smoker that make good BBQ it's the chef in front of it!

cheech - this is the new model with the air damper and door lock so I should be good to go. I also got this smoker for free with my cabelas points so that was a bonsus.

I'm in the middle of my first smoke with the new smoker...3 fatties and 2 racks of st. Louis ribs. Did JD reg, hot, and sage. Just ate them and everyone like dhte hot and sage best...No rub on the fatties.

I put water, apple juice and some rub in the water pan. Ribs still have about an hour...Can't wait to open up the foil.

Got some Cabela points myself and now that I got my new Brinkman not sure what I am going to buy with them. Yet an other smoker may not be out of the question.

Carhart??? Cabelas points are 1% toward cabelas purchases from everything you buy on your credit card. The scary thing is to get $200 means I spent $20,000 on my credit card over the last year and a half! I just charge everything I can and pay it off each month. The credit card company probably hates people like me.

If you know how to use the system ans stick to it there's all kinds of free stuff to be had. Most people don't stick to the plan and get in over their heads - they love that!
