I am looking for a good electric smoker to start. I've done indirect grilling on our kettle Weber charcoal grille. But I want an electric smoker for ease of use. I would like to spend at most 300-350. I may spend a little additional for other accessories. I live in NC and we have some good BBQ and I want to make more at home. I've thought about Masterbuilt as I see them in many stores around here but from reviews and posts they don't seem to last or regularly need parts replaced. I understand generation 1 or 2.5 are the Masterbuilt to get. Is charbroil any good or smoke hollow? I see smoking it and they are pricy but look well built! And have a 3yr warranty. Thought? I'd be cooking for my wife and my son most of the time but want to have space to cook a number of items. Maybe eventually try cold smoking cheese and such.
