I have tried several method to smoke foods. Indirect on my Weber grill seems ok. I have had some luck with a Brinkman Gourmet Smoker, but have an impossible time keepind an even temperature. I decided to try a Brinkman Gourmet Electric Smoker and am completely disappointed with the results. I can hardly taste the smoke and no smoke ring. I am ready to put the Brinkman's on Craigs List. I have to ask people's opinions. I want to smoke with minimum babysitting of the smoker. That is why I tried electric. What are opinions on the Traeger Grills? They seem to require little attention while smoking and use wood to cook like a pit.
