I stumbled in here while looking for a new smoker. Currently I mainly use a Masterbuilt 7-in-1 propoane model but I've been through several others including electric and charcoal. I like many aspects of the propane but often it won't burn cool enough without blowing out for my taste and the Masterbuilt is not set up well for hanging sausage links. Since I just harvested a deer a few days ago that I plan to use for sausage, I need something that is front-loading and that will hold a decent quantity of meat. I'm open to electric or propane (since my neighbor has a charcoal smoker I can use I don't want to go that route) although since I already have a propane one I'm leaning for electric. The Bradley looks decent although buying the pucks isn't too convenient because I live in a rural area (I wonder if I can make my own pucks?). Masterbuilt seems to have several that look good and I've looked at a few others too. So I will be interested to see what everyone here has to say. I mostly smoke with alder, cherry and apple because they are abundant where I live but I'ved used and enjoyed many different woods.
