this one. It's electric. I know that is not the most self sufficient meat smoker I could have but ...
1. I don't know a lot about meat smoking yet and want to start with something easy...and
2. I am pretty sure that I am way too busy (lazy) to want to have one where I have to keep a fire going or keep tending all day.
This one I just add chips to every 45 minutes to and hour. I think I can do that. There also seems to be a device you can buy to lengthen the time and make it work better. I have yet to check into all that.
I have found an amazing forum on meat smoking (sorry I had to delete the forum link since they insisted on deleting the link to my blog on said forum-I never have understood this competition thing that some forums do--to me it is all about sharing good information--not making money so any links are welcome on my forum but I sure will not promote their site when they can't even leave up my link when I just posted it on the "get to know you" part of my forum so they could get to damn know me). I am sure it is going to help me out a lot. If you are thinking of learning to smoke meat, they also have a free little e-course that sends you a chapter a day and they have some really great newsletters.
