Good afternoon. I'm fairly new to smoking. Last yr I bought a wood smoker, I have smoked chicken and pork butt a couple times. Smoked ribs and brisket once. Everything turned out. Some better than others. I enjoy the wood smoker but the time it takes makes it difficult to find time to use. I constantly have to maintain the fire to keep temps even. So I just purchased an electric smoker/wood chips. Trying it today for first time. Not sure if it will have the same flavor as the wood smoker but the ease of use hopefully will encourage me to smoke more.
