Smokin-It Model #2 Electric Smoker Review
Unfortunately, it doesn’t have any of the digital specifications you should see in a lot of other smokers at this price, and I can’t really recommend it for home use.
For serious use, this smoker is the business. It’s made of restaurant grade materials all the way through and it’s solid as a wrecking ball. The heating element is a really powerful 800W, and even better, they’re incredibly cheap to replace and just clip in and out if it ever needs replacing.
There’s a massive amount of internal space across 4 racks. The manufacturers say this should hold around 35lbs of meat with ease, and it’s not hard to see why.
Considering the build quality and fact that this beast will keep on cooking all day every day, it’s an excellent pick for anyone who sees serious use out of their smoker. If you’ve got an operation going that needs a smoker this size, this is a great pickup, and if you’ve got a major event coming and need to make sure your smoker will handle it, this definitely will.
Unfortunately, for the home market, it’s hard to recommend. Unlike everything else at this range, this smoker has no digital controls and no automation. If I was dropping this much on a smoker for casual use, I’d want it to do as much of the work as possible.
In short, if you’re semi-pro at smoking meat or above, this smoker performs great. If you’re looking for something to stick on the deck and cook great tasting meat for family and friends, this is too much. Grab the Masterbuilt or even the Smokin-it model 1 instead.
