It's straight pimpin. It has a built in meat thermometer and a freakin remote. "Oh I wonder what my internal temp is out there in the smoker... Oh.. Hold on. Lemme check the remote".

Do it.

Trust me.
SOmething like this?

That's not necessarily out of the budget. The side-box ones are maybe a hundred bucks less, but I can justify the $100 difference if I can set it up and not have to futz with it while I'm working on the house or doing whatever all day.

Don't talk bad about the electric. I'm throwing a 17 pound brisket in mine tonight before I go to bed. Won't have to worry about it one lick overnight. Set it and forget it. 225*F for 11 hours. I'll put it on at midnight then foil it at 5 when I get up to fire Bertha for the Hawg. Scrumpdiddlyiscious.

If I have time, I'll try and rig up something with screens. I "assume" I'd want to put the smoke in the bottom and let it rise up through?

Regarding food, is there a big difference in flavor/texture/moisture between hot smoking and cold smoking?



And, if anyone needs any brewing ingredients, I am planning on being at the S. Weymouth homebrew emporium tomorrow at 10AM in order to get whole hops for the beer. I'm most likely going to be at PTN's first, but I'll be happy to pick up anything that anyone else may need. you can PM me for my contact info, or just look for pictures in any post office.

I do have a birthday coming up fairly soon. Pretty sure I won't get too much resistance, once I explain the "homemade bacon" part.

Looks like I could get one without the remote (c'mon... that's a *little* frivolous) and without a glass door for only $190.

http://www.amazon.com/Masterbuilt-20070910-30-Inch-Electric-Smokehouse/dp/B00104WRCY/ref=sr_1_1?s=lawn-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1348856411&sr=1-1&keywords=masterbuilt+smoker



Think it'd probably be worth it to have the glass door, though, so I can keep an eye on it without having to open the door (and lose heat/smoke).
