Years back I used to have an electric water smoker. I loved making smoked chicken. Easy to make and then freeze and keep on hand. Ultimately the one I had rusted out and I have never replaced it. I'm getting a yearning for some smoked chicken. I'd like to buy one that's sturdier and good at low temperatures. I've seen the Brinkman Online but now I've also read a little about the Masterbuilt and the Cookshack models. Rather than barrel looking smokers, they resemble refrigerators. Has anyone had experience with these or other electric smokers? What are your thoughts, recommendations, ideas? Can they stay outside on a deck? (I live in NYC so the winters can be harsh.)
Thanks for your advice!
