Good afternoon everyone. I have been smoking for about 20 years on a electric water bullet. I have a lot of success with that thing but alas, it died with a couple of racks in that cold, darn metal missile. I have been wanting a smoker I could control a little bit more than not at all. So I did my typical thing and geeked-out on smokers. The SM025 won and I did my first smoke with a whole chicken. Fantastic, everything was as I hoped. Looking forward to my new adventures into proper q...well at least the lazy persons electric style.
