Portable Electric Smoker

Our first weekend with our Masterbuilt smoker... Yep electric...

FOR ONCE we were "those" people at the camground making everyone hungry

The smoker, travel bag, and chip assortment, about $150. It was a blast. I love me some BBQ.... This was incredible, brisket, chicken, roast corn.... All while feet were propped up and consuming what may or may not have been adult beverages!

i have debated on getting an electric smoker or a propane smoker for off grid trips. I am still trying to decide which one would be better.

I have smoked with wood logs and my smoker for years, that being said, I went to Colorado for 3 weeks. I took my new electric smoker for this adventure. I brined a turkey breast for 2 days in pickling spice. (sound's weird) I smoked at a KOA at the foot heals of the mountain range by La Porte, CO with apple wood chips. I was converted so much that I bring it everywhere we camp now.
Never thought I would like it but it works great!

I was very skeptical... About the electric, however, it is amazing! This one is 15" x 22"x22". My final push was if I didnt like it, i guarantee you 1 of my grown kids would have! The smoker was only $99... At the risk of bragging, as good as any brisket I've ever purchased. I just used a little meat tenderizer and coconut lime seasoning.... Oh my, come on weekend!

Just read a "brine" turkey recipe, will look up pickling spice version. So, be honest, did the foothills view help the flavor?!

I have an Oster Smoker & Roaster. Ordered it from Walmart for about $60. Wood chips go into the little corner baskets. Works great. This is an 8 pound Boston Butt. Have also done a 16 pound turkey.

I use a Master Built electric smoker with a built in temperature probe. If yours don't have the probe, get one. Put the probe in the meat, close the wire up in the door gasket, and lay the indicator on top. You know exactly what the meat is doing without opening the door. I smoked 2 - 15 lb turkeys for Thanksgiving (at the same time). The first time I opened the door was to take them out.
