Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by James LOVE IT!! Use it every weekend at the lake!
Great and easy to use. I have a wood fired smoker and have always had difficulty keeping the heat just right. this is simple to use and just set the heat and leave it alone and let it do its thing. I've had it just a short while but after cooking brisket on it last weekend my neighbor ordered on as well. Cooked 4 racks of ribs and a brisket all at once. Smoked brisket for 6 hours, wrapped it up in foil and cooked it another 6 while I took the family on the lake. it was perfectly tender, juicy and delicious when we got back to the lake house. Ribs I smoked for 3 hours, wrapped in foil and cooked another 2 hours. took them off the heat and let them slowly cool while we were out and they were fantastic as well.

great smoker. Love the electric. Do not have to deal with fuel. Working great in all outdoor temperatures. Food came out very nice. Family and friends commented a lot on the quality of the food.

I received this smoker as a gift several years ago. At first I was disappointed it was not a propane model like I had hinted that I wanted. After a couple of uses I was glad it was electric. No propane tank issues like running out of lp in the middle of a smoke, etc. I have used and abused this smoker and it keeps smoking away. I had the heating element go out after two years. I called the company and they shipped one right out with no hesitation. Very easy to regulate temperature high and low.
If you are thinking of a smoker, you can't go wrong with this one.

I had to buy a smoker because I live in an apt. and I could no longer have a charcoal smoker on my patio so I looked at some electric smoker. While researching I did not want the fancy ones with the windows, the digital thermometers. I just wanted a smoker that was simple and worked. This was easy to put together. And I just put wood chips in,turned it on and like the other guy said I didn't put any water in.I had chicken breast on the bottom, a slab of ribs in the middle, and a half a brisket on top. Everything was great. Especially the chicken breast, juicy

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ronald It sure beats the old round one.
Just a suggestion, start the smoker on HIGH not 200-220 until the wood chips start to smolder, then re-adjust your temperature. Very easy to add water too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Easy to assemble, great entry level smoker, holds heat very well, good bang for the buck!
Overall, I am very happy with this smoker. I have used it a number of times now with excellent results. I would recommend that a digital remote thermometer (available at Home Depot) be purchased with the smoker because the attached thermometer understandably lacks accuracy. You will also want to monitor the internal temperature of what you are smoking. Because the smoker is electric, I no longer have the hassle of running out of gas or the mess of charcoal.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Flyfisher This item is NOT a smoke house
This is called a smoke house but it is not a smoke house in the common sense of the word. It does not smoke under 300 degrees. The chip pan is too far from the element to fire the chips. Even when I prestarted the chips on a hot plate, this smoker would not keep the chips smoking when set at 275 degrees. What this should be called is a hot-smoke or barbeque oven. You cannot cold-smoke fish or make jerky, all you can do with this oven is to use it as a barbeque. Also, the bottom racks are permanently mounted, making it nearly impossible to clean properly. Apparently OSHA required them to make the racks permanent so kids couldn't crawl inside. I had to drill out the rivets holding the racks and replace them with removable racks so that I could decently load and unload product from them. I could then also remove the racks for cleaning. I would have returned mine if I hadn't modified it.
