    Bradley's are nice for ease of use but some of the parts tend to wear out. For a very sturdy built one check out the Smokin-it line of smokers. I have one on order right now. It got very good reviews.

    For many years I had a smoker that I built myself, rigged from an old freezer shell & electric hotplates. One day it shorted out, and started an electrical fire in my shed. Thank goodness my homeowner's was paid that month. After that fiasco, I bought a Smokin Tex, works great, had it 5 years. A buddy has a Smokin It smoker, which is basically a rip-off of Smokin Tex, and his works fine. The only thing is it holds the moisture in (no dampers), so I bought their drying fan for making jerky, comes out great. I don't keep it in the shed anymore, I keep it on the back porch (covered awning).

    Here's the place to ask. Forums Got my 20lb elec from the sausagemaker.com but I believe Lem has them cheaper. Masterbuilt is great from what I've read.

    I have a Masterbuilt electric smoker. I have had it for about 3 years. I have no complaints. Use it about once a month on average. Sometimes more often.

    It is nice to just set the temperature dial and not have to worry about it getting too hot or not hot enough. If and when it stops working I will probably by another Masterbuilt.

    I have a buddy that bought the Bradley automated smoker. The thing worked great for the first year then he started having issues with it. After two years he is shopping for a new smoker.
