    Welcome to the forum, nothing wrong with electric smokers, I have 2 of them, the one on the right smoked a brisket while I was sleeping over night, you can also see the Traeger and the smokestack from the fridge conversion in the back ground

    Tammi, welcome to the SMF. Using an electric smoker is not cheating, just ask anyone who owns a MES. It's all about the end result, if it taste good to you, then you've done the job. Many different ways to smoke a meal. It's all good my friend.

    Welcome to the SMF Tammi! As stated, there are plenty of us here with electric smokers and there's just nothing wrong with them after some practice! Feel free to jump right in and ask all the questions you want. Remember, there are no dumb questions, just dumb people who ask questions. No...wait, I have that wrong...[​IMG] You know what we mean!

    Seriously, welcome aboard and enjoy the ride!

    Hi Tammi and welcome to the SMF. But I've got to be honest with you. Log out now and don't come back for a while. As a single mom and a full-time student you do not have the time to handle the addiction that will come with smoking meats and joining this forum.

    Awww, I'm just teasing. Congratulations on pulling off your first smoke. Sounds like the kids loved it, which is the greatest compliment you can get.

    All great people aroound here who really want to help you get the results you desire. Just ask a question in the proper room and usually within a couple of minutes you'll get several replys. Great place this is.

    Tammi, welcome to the SMF family. Your electric smoker will work just fine for you and will put out some great food. A number of fine folk on here use an electric smoker including me-sometimes the Lang 60 is a bit big for smoking 1 chicken. [​IMG]

    Enjoy the new addiction!
