Of course price is an issue, as with anything. I was trying to decide between the Smokette Original Model SM009-2 Electric Smoker or the Smokette Elite Model SM025 Electric Smoker. The 14 X 14 size on the original would be a problem. because I cook a lot of ribs and don't like to cut the rack. Any tips about buying one of these would be welcome. Any incite would be great.
