Hello. My name is William from the eastern shore of Maryland. Been lurking on site and have really learned a lot. I am new at this slow smoking. I do not have CS yet but I do have a Brinkman Electric.This does a good job for me on cooking beef, turkey, chicken and ham. Also have a Smokey Mountain Outdoors which I have converted to electric with a 1500W.heating element. I think this does a excellent job.I really thank all for info I have received, especially from Smoking & Tom.
