Which Smoker to Buy?????
 
Hello everyone, I am looking to purchase a smoker to smoke fish and different cuts of meats. I have looked at the bradley which uses pucks of wood and automatic feeds them in, but I am not complete sold on having to purchase the pucks every time. I want it to be electric. I am wondering which one you would recommend.

Last fall I bought a green mountain and it is awesome. It is similar to a treager but more technology for less money. The advantages it has is higher temp 500°, digital temp control at 5° increments and internal meat probe that is integrated into the digital display. It isn't cheap but is very well built and should last a very long tine.

I'm a new owner of a Bradley (about a month, been smoking every weekend). The pucks don't seem that expensive, and it is very, very troublefree and hands off, if that's what you want.

I may not be a purist when it comes to smokers, but I sure like the idea of not having to tend to it for four or six hours. I'm a fan so far.

I have a Bradley

you dont have to use pucks.

I use pellets, and pucks, chips, and chunks.

I only use the pucks when I am leaving it unattended for a while, like a 17 hr brisket smoke.

I will not tell you which is best. I can only say that I have had the Traeger Jr for three years now and am really enjoying it! I have not even started the propane grill in over a year. However, the idea of never checking might be a problem as the pellet supply does need tending.

I have a Cook Shack Smokette, have had it for 3 year could not be happier with the results with this smoker. [url]http://www.cookshack.com/[/url]

I bought a GMG (green mountain grills)smoker this spring and LOVE IT. Got a real nice stainless gas grill last year and haven't even fired it up this year. Kinda sad. You would not be disappointed in a GMG, after you stomach the price tag.

We had a Cookshack Smokette, which I really liked but it was destroyed when it a strong wind blew it off my 2nd story deck. When I was looking for a replacement I came across a smoker that mimicked the Cookshack but at a much lower cost; which you can see @ [URL]http://www.smokin-it.com/category_s/5.htm[/URL]

We bought the Model #2 and found it to be built like a brick (you get the idea) and can highly recommend it to anyone who’s looking for an electric smoker that should last forever and a day.

We also purchased their stainless steel cart, which elevates the smoker and makes it a breeze to get thing in and out of the smoker; which you can see @ [URL]http://www.smokin-it.com/Smoker_Cart_p/smkrcart.htm[/URL]
