  1. I've been wanting to buy a smoker for a couple of years now. My neighbor has a Bradley and is always bragging about the food he smokes. I finally decided that now is the time. Cabelas has the Masterbuilt Electric Smoker on sale which I see as a sign to buy! I have heard good things about both the Bradley and Masterbuilt but I don't want to seem like a copycat so decided to go with the Masterbuilt. Hope to pick it up today or early tomorrow, get it home, set it up, season it, and throw on some spareribs and a chicken on Sunday.

    Wish me luck!

    Welcome to SMF, Larry! This is a great place to hang out if you're just getting started doing Q. The folks here are always ready to help out and there's a lot of knowledge and experience around here. Make yourself at home and look around. We're glad you joined us.

    Oh... and make sure you season that smoker before you put meat in it. You don't want an residue from the factory making fumes to flavor your food.

    Welcome to the Forum.

    You have made a couple of good choices. The first was joining SMF. The second was the Smoker. Quite a popular unit. Several members have that one and can help you if need be. And, if you scroll down, you will see that there is a forum dedicated to electric Smokers.

    If yo do have questions, just go to the appropriate forum and ask away. You will have help in no time.

    Once again, welcome to SMF.

    Welcome to SMF from a fellow smoker to the west of you !!!
    I just got done reading the Cabela's flyer and $149.99 is a heck of a good price; for an electric smoker the Masterbuilt is tough to beat at it's regular price.
