Smoke Hollow 30162E 30-inch Electric Smoker

If you don’t like the digital procedure much, then this old school smoker might be a good match for your liking. Unlike other electric smokers, it only has a little to do with anything digital. It has a cord for plugging, but that’s about all as far as digitalization goes. It doesn’t have any Bluetooth temperature controller or any kind of remote system. But you will have plenty of ways for conventional temperature controlling.

This smoker is made for outdoor cooking, so you can place it in your backyard or any place that you deem fit.

Hands down, this is the best for beginners as far as electric smokers go. With this one, you won’t have to worry about breaking anything because everything can be assembled easily and at home. The smoker comes with replaceable parts, so you can change any parts any time you would like. You can play with this traditional smoker as much as you like. And there are many options for cooking food as well.

This model doesn’t have any wheels to move it around. Fortunately, two side handles make it quite easy to carry the electric smoker around. It also comes in different sizes, so there shouldn’t be much worried about the moving bit.

This smoker might not be convenient for you if you want to keep an eye on the food all the time. Because there is no transparent door to see the inside of it. The wood chip box and the water pan both are inside the main compartment so whenever you need to add wood chips or water, you have to open the door. That means the smoke will escape whenever you open the door.

Insulation is a big deal when you are dealing with electric smokers. Good thing is, the insulating system is wonderful in this smoker, allowing the cooking perfect and consistent with lots of smoke.
