Default Electric Smoker recommendation?

I am retiring the rusted out 55 GL smoker. I want to replace with an Electric. Looking at the Bradleys and the Masterbuilts. What do you guys use and like? Looking for simple and quality. Digital? Thanks!

Doughnut,
I have zero experience with the bradley's. I bought an electric masterbuilt primarily for sausage making as it will smoke down to 110 degree's. That being said, I find myself using it for just about everything from chicken to pork butts. Pretty much set and forget. maybe add some wood chunks/chips on occasion. The Electric smokers by Cookshack are probably better constructed, but you pay more as well. Check cabela's for sales on occasion on the masterbuilts. I've had positive experience with their customer service as well. One thing that turned me off about the bradley's is their proprietary "biscuits" that you have to buy for smoke.

I picked up the Masterbuilt electric smoker this past year, I had used an old Brinkman electric for many years.

So far I really like the Masterbuilt and price was decent too

I looked at the Cookshack and Bradley, only thing that worried me about the Bradley is if they ever went out of business where to get the little disks that create the smoke plus I would have to order online to keep a stock of them

I have the Bradley smoker. Would I purchase another, NO? The pucks are getting very expensive and the auto puck advance is broken. It worked okay for about a year and after that....well you know the rest.
