my Cajun electric smoker finally died after a dozen or more repairs and ten long years of hard use and more all nighter's then i can count or remember , it has gone to the great smoker heaven BUT the wife let me buy another one , Master built Sportsman Elite 30'' Electric Smoker , maybe because she got tired of me asking or maybe because she misses the food ?? I thought about the 40" but during the cold months i don't really do alot of smoking just brisket and ribs for new years . I do have a propane smoker and a wood burner smoker but the electric is the easiest to use during the winter months. Now all i have to do is put it together and do some Mods and season it and be ready to go for Thanksgiving ! i just hope it lasts as long as my other did !! Happy Smoking !
