Hi everyone! Here's probably the start of a million questions.......maybe I'll be able to answer one some day! I have a simple home made stainless smoker. Basically a box with a drip tray and food shelf. Smoked some salmon....really nice but it's a bit of a pain to get to the chips etc. I really need something better. What I know I want: - Pretty much sure I want an electric set up to avoid having to master charcoal on long cook times. - Having said that I like the option of being able to remove the electric bits and use some charcoal sometimes. This isn't absolutely necessary though. - I don't want to be restricted to any pre-formed bisquettes (right spelling?!) - I plan to try both hot and cold smoking. I could keep my current smoker for cold smoking but would rather sell it. - I want to be able to smoke larger items as well as small i.e. joints, briskets, full sides of salmon etc. No whole hogs though! - I don't want to spend a fortune but not planning to buy junk either. I want it to last. I'll be an occasional smoker really but that might increase! The big question is.........what smoker to get?! Importantly, I'm in Scotland so I can't access the same range available in the US and Canada. I've seen smokers like this. http://www.gardengiftshop.co.uk/acatalog/Electric-Fish---Meat-Smoker.html It's just a single skin, not stainless, with a simple electric element. Not sure if it's a good buy or not. Any thoughts? Any steer on this or any smoker is welcome!
