Hey everyone I'm incridably new to smoking so I have a few questions. The first how to start? My wife wants a smoker that looks well appealing I was leaning to the Masterbuilt ES but I see on these forums active users seem to have issues with it all the time. Will it achieve that smoky taste will I have to babysit it, and will it get that great tasting bark on the meat. Or do I go with the smoky mountain lot of draw backs a lot to set up which makes me wonder if I'll use it as much. Open coals what if someone hing goes wrong while I'm asleep and the house is burning down because some animal knocked it over oh and it's not exactly appealing to look at. But I hear it's the best for taste cook bark and all the things you think of when you think smoker.
