Hello Everyone! My name is Donnie. I am new to the site and am looking for some of your expertise for guidance. I am a bit of a novice when it comes to smoking. I have a Charbroil Smoke'N Grill that works decently but it has no vent to control air flow besides the fact there is not a good seal around where the lid meets the base and the side door leaks quite a bit of smoke. The location of the charcoal pan is poor and makes adding more charcoal challenging. I am looking into a vertical electric smoker by Masterbuilt. Leaning more towards the 40" than the 30". In your opinion is there another smoker in the $250-300 range that would be a better investment. It seems that there have been good and bad reviews of the Masterbuilt Electric Smoker. I would definitely be investing in the A-maze-N Pellet Smoker to compliment the amount of smoke. Your help will greatly be appreciated!
