    Want to buy a new smoker, get rid of my stick burner. Can't make witch one l want. Want to be able to set it and forget it. Price is no object thx for any input.

    I would go with an electric over propane, as I think the temps are easier to control especially at a lower temp. I could never get my propane one to stay much under 200° unless it was really cold then I had issues trying to keep it up at 200°

    I really like my cookshack, even if it just a small smoker, it would be better if I had bought a larger one at the time.

    I think it really depends on what you are planning to smoke.  Pork and Beef, I'd go propane.   Fish, I'd go electric.
  4. Use to have propane, got a fast eddie pellet grill (pg500) now and the set and forgot of the pellet grill is much easier even compared to propane. Plus it makes a damn good grill.

    No experience with electric
