    Default Smokin-it Electric Smokers

    Has anybody had any experience with Smokin-it electric smokers? They look good on the web-site and some reviews compare them to Cookshack. I'm considering the Model 3. Any feedback would be appreciated. Link to website is below:

    Thanks!

    I guess it depends on what you are going to use it for.
    a rheostat for temperature control from 100 to 250 degrees
    I have a MFES-40 from Lowes. Made by Masterbuilt. I've had it for about a month and love it. Great for sausage and bacon, the main reason that I bought it.
    I've cold smoked cheese, salt, sugar and boiled eggs in it using the AMNTS. I've also cooked a tri tip and 2 whole chickens (halved) for pulled chicken sammies. It's not quite hot enough to do quality chicken skin, IMHO. Buckboard, Canadian and Belly Bacon coming soon, so stay tuned to that forum.
    Temp range of 100-275F
    It's Digital and is $279. Use their 10% discount if you are a veteran and can prove it.

    Check it out.









    I'll do a complete review on it later in a different thread.
    Sorry bout the HiJack.

    It should work great for that, with the exception of the poultry skin.
    Then it's either broiler or grill to crisp it up.
    Good luck and keep us posted.

    If yoou are goign to buy a serious electric smoker, why not just by the original and teh industry standard, Cookshack?


    You will not find a better built unit and you will not find a company that stands behind their product any better. I know these people personally and can attest to how they do business.

    Thanks for the reply! I would love to get a Cookshack, but it looks to be about twice the money. Don't know if you remember me, I'm a friend of your brother-in-law's and had BBQ with you at Sweet Baby Ray's in Chicago last summer!
