This is one of the best digital electric smokers for sale on the market today. Relatively simple to use, with a digital control panel on top managing the temperature, thermostat and cooking timer. There is also a separate remote control included. It has four internal shelves, as well as an externally-loaded wood chip tray. This smoker will cook up to 4 big racks of ribs, 2 turkeys or 12 chickens- up to 30lbs of meats of your choice. You will have to keep adding wood chips periodically depending on how long you’ll be cooking your food. But I particularly like this model as an “all-rounder” smoker that should suit the needs of any household, big or small.
This unit is an fantastic product that can be used for cooking, smoking, roasting all types of meats and veggies. This new model is highly rated, very reasonably priced and a consistent top-seller on Amazon. It can smoke a wide variety of food and features 548 square inches of interior cooking space spread out over 3 adjustable racks. This unit from the trusted Cuisinart brand comes with a built in water pan and an internal chip smokebox giving you 45-60 mins of delicious smoke before it needs to be recharged. I like this model because its compact, easy to maneuver around and packs a punch for its size.
This is one of the highest rated electric smokers on Amazon right now. A little more pricey, but its large size, stainless steel, fully insulated construction- as well its almost completely automated system makes this a really great model. Internally, there are six racks to hold your meats and an internal thermometer makes sure you know how they’re doing. What I think is really unique about the Bradley line is it’s wood “bisquettes” that are digitally fed by automatic column into the cooker. It can also reach an internal temperature of up to 320 degrees, making it one of the hotter smokers on the market. In contrast to other cheap electric smokers, this one is probably the most hands-off you can find. This is quite a large electric smoker, so if you want to go all out and buy yourself a “Cadillac” model, then be ready to treat yourself.
If want a quality, yet cheap electric smoker, then I think the Old Smokey line is a great buy. Unlike some newer more sophisticated models, Old Smokey is a small electric smoker with vertical build and a flat top lid. Its of aluminum-steel construction, but is smaller and less impressive looking than some of the other smokers out there on the market. Nevertheless, don’t let it’s size and “low-tech” appearance put you off: it will still produce some lick-smacking ribs, chicken and hot links. It has two internal racks and a wood chip pan you a the bottom on top of the heating element. So it doesn’t have all those newfangled, digital doohickeys- for me that’s OK. It’s simplicity of use and low price more than makes up for a lack of modern bells and whistles. Just an outside thermostat and adjustable gauge to set your desired cooking temps.
With it’s magnetic door-latching system, steel construction, internally loaded wood chip tray and outer handles, Smoke Hollow is probably the best lower-priced electric smoker on the market today. An easy to use adjustable dial lets you control your temps and the built in door thermometer gauges how things are going on inside. It has three fully adjustable chrome racks inside and a surprisingly large capacity to accommodate multiple cuts of ribs, fish, turkey etc. It’s pretty powerful too, getting up to 300 degrees. So, for it’s design, ease of use and price, I’d say you’ve found yourself a great budget buy- especially for those who are just getting their feet wet using the types of devices.
