Its been awhile since Iv been on here and honestly its been awhile since I have used my smoker for various reasons but Im back now and with the weather improving Iv decided its time to invest in a new smoker. Had an electric smoker like the brinkman but my dog chewed through the power cord and I cant find a replacement cord and after soldering it back together its just not getting up to temp. So that leads me to my question. Whats the best electric smoker that I can get for around $300-$350? I was leaning towards an mes40 but I know the gen 2 mes smokers have had issues when they first came out but have those issues been addressed and fixed by the company? What about the Cajun Injector XL? Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
