I was down at the surplus and take-backs store on Monday, they had one of the Masterbuilt 30" smokers for sale, not the digital kind, the old-fashioned job with a dial thermometer in the door. I am a sucker for a bargain, even if I don't need one I am tempted. By Tuesday morning I had convinced myself that I needed it so I paid the $80 and took it home. Since then I bought some mesquite chips and dry rub and have been cleaning out the freezers. I am having a ball with this thing, pork steaks and ribs are great!! If you find a bargain on an electric smoker don't pass it up.
