I have a Cookshack Smokette, had it for about 12 years and love it but not enough temp for my kind of chicken and would like to have more room to cook. Also have a Gas unit that needs some tweeking and an old brinkman barrel. Looking at either a Smokin It #4 for the electric or the Rec Tec for the pellet. Any advice on pros or cons and opinions of owners. I know the electric will still only go to 250, but I figure with a 1500W element one could get a new thermostat or controller and modify it a bit, because that seems to be what we do we adjust things to our liking to fit our needs. So any advice? Oh also may need to do a little convincing on the girlfriend end, she thinks I am nuts now with the stuff I have and taking pictures of food and such.
