Ok, the electric smoker was AMAZING. I was concerned about how much smoke flavor the meat would actually take. I slightly over-smoked the meat! The ribs also finished an hour and a half under schedule. It was hard for me to judge how to do them when I'd only done them on a normal smoker that fluctuates a little bit. This thing is like a rock-solid beast. I put 10 lbs of country ribs in it at 250F, apple juice in the pan, hickory in the box and they were done in 3 hrs flat. I'm speechless really. They were GREAT!
In short. This electric smoker has an LCD readout of your current temp and time left. You set both parameters and it keeps it till time runs out up to 275F. You feed the wood chips from a hatch in the side. Amazing.
