    Click on the word "Forum" at the top of the page, scroll down till you see "Roll Call" click on that, then start a new thread. That is the place we have new folks create a post telling us about themselves and what type of smoker, grill, ect. they got. Further down the "Forum" page you will see several links dedicated to the various types of smokers, divided up by fuel source. I suggest you take some time to poke around there and ask questions from other folks using the same fuel source you are interested in.

    Welcome aboard and just remember aint no such thing as a dumb question, we will do our best to help you off to a success full and happy smoking carreer!

    I own it and its pretty good.  Its like a knock off of the Smokin-Tex.  I have the smaller size, it works well, holds a constant temperature and is very heavy/well insulated.

    Yes, it is a knockoff of the Smokin Tex, which is itself a knockoff of the Cookshack smoker. Each one gets cheaper as you get farther from the original.

    Welcome to the SMF. Glad to have you here. Lots of good folks, great recipes and knowledge. Looking forward to  your first qview. [​IMG]
  11. I own one and love it.  It is a hands off kind of thing since the electric element does the work.  I have made everything from baby backs, spares, beer can chickens, pork shoulder and beef brisket in it.  I can fit two good sized beer can birds in it.  Very well insulated and super efficient since the element is only 350 watts as opposed to some that use upwards of 1000 watts.  And it holds temp spot on.  

    I especially like it because we have a 5 year old who keeps us super busy so tending to a fire (albeit fun and part of the Q experience) is really not an option for me right now.  From the time I bring it out of the garage to actually having smoke is about 30 minutes.  I line the bottom with heavy duty alum foil and cover the wood box with it also...makes cleanup a snap.  Just make sure to poke a hole in the foil to the drain hole so everything can drain into a pan below.

    I follow general timing and temp rules with it and it works very nicely.  Also, I would recommend buying the chip insert for the wood box, allows you to use chips instead of chunks.  Just provides more flexibility for you.  I will be trying a fattie this weekend in there, cannot wait!

    No have not heard of that one I purchased a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker price was good and easy to operate
  13. This is the most helpful internet forum I've seen.  Kudos to everyone involved.  You old folks, er, I mean senior folks, er, I mean more experienced, er, well, you know...You folks take great pride in helping everyone out.  I've been able to pass along so much (useful) knowledge because.

    I'm building another electric smoker, pictures and Qviews to follow.

    You guys rock.

    Cheaper in price...but not cheaper in quality.

    I can tell you from ownership of the similar sized Cookshack units - these from Smokin' it and Smokin' Tex are absolutely as well built - maybe heavier than Cookshack. 
  18. I don't know how to give you a thumbs up but good catch.Thanks

  19. Never heard of that smoker.....welcome to our group.............[​IMG]
  20. Looks just like a Smokin Tex

    I have one and like it but have since moved to a Big Green Egg. The price seems very attractive on this unit.
