I would really like to hear from all of you especially with advice on using a Smokin' Tex electric smoker. Now, I'm not sure using an electric smoker qualifies me as a smoker but I do love the taste of smoked meats. One difference I've noted between electric and a traditional smoker is not being able to baste/mop without losing heat and subsequently having to add time to the smoking. How much do you lose by not being able to baste/mop? Anyway, tomorrow I'm trying my first turkey. I have it in a brine right now preparing for an early start in the morning. I'll let you know how it came. Thanks and hope to hear back from you.
