Electric Smoker looking for a new one

Recommended Posts

Hi I am new to the forum and looking for feedback and experience of electric smokers. I had a Bradley - poorly built in China, bisquettes are expensive in long term use and the smoke generator unit failed - all in all not a happy experience. I have been looking at outdoor cook, Masterbuilt, Thuros, CharBroil, Klarstein etc - would love to hear about the experiences of others here and any recommendations - all seem to have mixed reviews so difficult to decide

Hi Vintage, once again, welcome to the Forum.

I would not recommend the Bradley to anyone.

I have a Borniak Electric Smoker


These are OK, but run on a type Saw Dust, but it is about 2-3mm in size, and expensive to buy. I use it with an Smoke Generator.


A lot of people use a WSM  with a similar generator as above, that way you have a good Pit and also be able to Cold Smoke with it.

Electric smoker are easy to use. So I’ll choose ellectric smoker.

Here’s some details on both:

Gas Smoker

The gas smoker is also called propane smoker. It is designed to allow the smoking of heat in a controlled environment. It is powered by natural gas or propane as the primary source of heat. Heating element generates the heat. And it is used to produce smoke that is essential for smoking.

Electric Smoker

Electric smokers are relatively a new type of smoker. They use electricity, rather than fuel gas. That means, the smoker can’t be used where electricity isn’t available.

Electrical smoker is very easy to use. You just need to plug the smoker, set the temperature and start cooking. They provide ample cooking space for a wide range of foods.

Hope this helps.
