Full Review – Old Smokey Electric Smoker

Old Smokey has been making smokers since the 1930's and have been one of the most popular brands in and around Texas. This electric version is heavily tested unit and has proven to be highly durable and easy to use. The simple design makes it easy to use and lets you produce great barbecue without a lot of fuel or effort and at a little over $150USD this is one of the least expensive smokers on the market.

This unit is little more than a large stock pot in design with a 1250 watt heat element in the base. Above the element is a smoke plate for your wood chips to produce smoke. Above that is a drip pan. This is not a vertical water smoker and there is no need for a water pan. The drip pan simple makes clean up easier. Above this drip pan are two cooking grates that will hold plenty of food (cooking grates are about 15 inches in diameter). The lid fits tight on the top and holds in heat and smoke.
