  1. hello all hope everyone had a merry christmas and a happy new year.... am al most ffinished building my smoker... it is an electric unit modled from the rather expensive smoking tec 1400. i have a good wood burning smoker but i was inpressed with the ability not to have to babysit the electric smoker that will come in very handy at times. not to mention the small electric unit will be handy to take to the firestation when im on duty.
    this is the first of the units i built and so im trying a lot of new things. like which size element to use, i first bought the brinksman 1500 watt conversion unit for 35.00$ at bass pro but after calling smoking tec i got the 700 watt comact unit for 24.00$ and it looks like the best way to go.... i will send pictures real soon...

    Welcome to the site. As for which element to use it depends on the size of your smoker and weather its insulated or not and such. I am using a 100w in my little cheif that I modded. Lots of info in the electric smoker section on here.
