    I have a Bradley smoker but I have to say this thing just sucks.. the wood feeder keeps jaming, the heat will never go over 200-210, its quit flimsy anyhow, 'm looking for a good relaible smoker. Preferably digital , with gas or electric. Please let me know your reccomendations.

    I run a verticle gasser so have no first hand knowledge of digital smokers but I do know most on here are quite fond of the Mes 40, stainless steel model with window. You could probably type in 'MES reviews' in the search bar above and get some info from guys that are actually using the unit for honest input.

    I like Electric but it has its flaws but for me less hassel. Mine is a old one that I put a Hot Plate in with a stainless steel bowl that I put my wood chips in. You can try the Hot Plate if you are not ready to buy a new smoker. My temp will go very near 400*..Nothing fancy...I also kill my deer with my truck...at least thats what Bear says...[​IMG]

    If you want an electric, most of the guys here will recommend a MES. I had one & it's a great smoker. I don't know about the gas models.
