Default Smoker

I am, again, in search of a new smoker, I bought a Cajun Injector brand 2 door electric smoker on a whim last year, great smoker when it worked, but the controller is going out, the temperature control and the timer won't work. This time I want to do some real research and see what people have and what has worked. What do you have, gas, charcoal, electric, thermostat or just manual control, makes, models, ease of use, what has worked and what was a POS, I trust the folks here a lot more than reviews on websites trying to sell equipment. Thanks in advance.

Love my egg. Can do 16 hour smoke or 600+ degree sear. Won't rot. Got mine several years ago and never looked back...

I have a masterbilt 30 electric smoker. Not as fancy as an egg but does everything I need to do. Digital temp control and timer control. Have had it two years with absolutely no problems. If it were to quit on me today I would get another one. It only goes to 275 degrees but it's a smoker, so I don't need it to go any higher. Smoked a turkey yesterday and everyone said it was the best turkey they had ever had.. course they might have been just trying to be nice..

I like the ease of gas, and I use a Camp Chef Smoke Vault 24".
I can use either propane or hook into the house's natural gas.
Nobody can deny the results I produce with it.

I used an elec Cookout Supply Co smiker for the last 4 years. It has been awesome, hell still works even though its rusting up pretty bad mainly due to my neglect. I too have been looking and deciding, but wife and kids got me a masterbuilt for Christmas, so its fixing to get broke in! Will update in the recipe section in a few days!!

Many people including me think that gas gives you the quality smoke flavor of a stick burner and the consistency and convenience of electric.

An old broken refrigerator with a hotplate and pot for wood of choice cover the pot. Put a vent on top or cut a small chunk out of the top door gasket. Drill a hole in side and stick a meat thermometer in for checking temps. Lasts a lifetime. Hotplate is only thing to replace that can go wrong.
