Been checking out the Masterbuilt 30 inch electric smoker. Is anyone currently using this smoker and are you happy with it?

Or is there a better option in the price range ~$200 before I pull the trigger.

My brother in law has one and I've used it a few times. Extremely easy to use and produces a good finished product every time. I like it but it is almost too easy to use. I prefer an old school smoker that requires me to sit next to it and constantly monitor temperature so there is no other choice but to drink beer and smoke cigars.

I love upright smokers. I have a cast iron skillet that I use in it to make beans and other stuff. you should try it. I payed around $150 for mine at Lowes. pretty good right out of the box.

I have the 30" digital version.
Only had it a month or so but loving it.
Real simple to use and the remote is a great feature.

Can't offer advise on any electric version because I prefer the totally charcoal type. Plenty of threads here on recommendations and the Weber Smoky Mountain gets a lot of good press. I have two and love them. They have 18 and 22 inch versions; the 18 is close to your price range. Very tight, great smoker and I just love it.
