I am thinking about getting one, possibly the digital one. Does anyone have pros and cons to them like how it heats and anything else?

I have read that they don't have an even heat and sometimes don't get hot enough. Anyone else have that problem?

I have been using the standard model for years and they work great. The Briquettes are a little pricey. If you want to use as a cold smoker you need to build a seperate box for the heating element and channel the smoke in to the smoker with a 4 inch tube.

I have the 6 rack digital... I think it works great..

With the six rack you have room to hang sticks...

Jjoe I think you posted that earlier this year. That's the reason I started to look at them. I am still keeping my other ones, but want to try an electric.

I can't say anything about the Bradly other than I don't have one based on the fact I don't like having to use the biskits I also fear a lack of availability that is why I got a master built it allows me the ability to use what I want chips chunks saw dust Hickory bark even grape vines.
BUT with all that out of the way Smokeing w/ Electric + Digital = LOVE [kiss] Oh yeah what everyone else said about digial for both time and temp is right on the $$$ and fact is for most things you only need from 1 to 3 charges of what ever smoking medium because you can actually make some things bitter with too much smoke no matter how long you need to cook things.

Jakesbeard does the master built got hot enough. I read the reviews on cabelas and they say that the bradley doesn't get as hot as it should. I am not set on bradley, but I am looking for a digital electric smoker that I can mess around with and try new things.

2Barrel is there any plans to do that?
Bradley has a website with a forum. Go there. The plans are there. Its real easy. If you plan to cold smoke. Thats keeping the smoke below 70 Deg. The seperate smoke chamber is a must. To get it below 70 deg. It must be 70 Deg. or below outside of course. I make the best Nova Lox and bacon this way.
