Electric Smokers

10 posts in this topic

I'm looking at getting an electric smoker. I've looking at the masterbuilt digital smoker or the Bradley Digital smoker. Does anyone own either of these? Like or dislike them? Problems?

Thanks for any input.

I have a Masterbuilt.Have had it for 4-5 years or so.Works great.I looked at the Bradley also,but decided I didn't want a smoker that only used their wood pucks.The Masterbuilt uses any wood you want.

It is very effecient.I have made all kinds of things in it including ribs,fish,and 100's of pounds of sausage,sticks and jerky

It uses very little wood and is so well insulated that I once was making sausage in Nov. and it snowed while I weas using it.The snow did not melt off the top while the smoker held a 200 degree temp inside.

I have the Masterbuilt as well. Everything Ken said is right. I made jerky just the other day; 40 degrees outside and it worked just fine. The digital thermostat is sweet for controlling temperature...

I've done some checking also and have pretty much decided on the masterbuilt. Looks like a darn good unit for the price too. I just saw one at a large shopping club and it even has a window to watch while you smoke.

Thanks for the info guys, I actually picked up the one with the window on Saturday from one of those shopping clubs. Will be testing it out this weekend.

Good choice! I have had my Masterbuilt for two years and love it.

Can I ask what price you got it from? I was thinking of getting one. Did you get a stainless steel or the black one?

Just under 3 bills before tax for the stainless steel version, I believe it's a little bigger than the one carried at cabelas.

    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one.
