    Just joined this forum a couple of days ago because I was impressed with the amount of good advice from friendly members here.

    I am located just north of Toronto and have used a "Centro" electric smoker since 9 month. This smoker is identical to the "Masterbuilt" sold in the USA. So far I mainly hot-smoked trout, mackerel and salmon with great success. Now I'm aiming to do some cold-smoking of salmon which will need some modifications to be done to my smoker.

    I am of 38 vintage (translation: 70 years old) but eager to learn more all the time. After all, what we learn after we know it all is what really counts.

    Hi bb53Chefpro,

    I really like the Centro and it performs very well and better than I expected from some of the older reviews that I read. Those reviews were mainly on the older model that did not have the latch for the door and which did not have the adjustable vent on top. I am not soaking the wood chips and only use a handfull at a time. That usually lasts for 3/4 hrs of smoke generation.

    I considered the Bradley smoker originally but was reluctant to commit to using only their proprietary biscuits for smoking. I also thought that the price was rather high. I'm glad that I chose the Centro.

    I will make some modification to use an external smoke generator to allow me to do some "cold smoking" which should be done at a temperature not higher than 80 F.

    Regards, Hassy

    Well hello and welcome to the SMF, a fun place to be. With all the fish that you've smoked, are you a fisherman? If you are/or rnot... read around the forums, there is a lot of great advise to help you along the smokin' road.
