The Brinkmann Smoke N Grill Electric Smoker is a nice little smoker for just over a hundred bucks!
It gets great reviews from customers who like that is doubles not only as a smoker, but also as an electric grill.
“I’m very happy with my new Brinkmann Smoke ‘N Grill Electric Smoker and Grill. It was easy to put together with a screwdriver and a pair of pliers, and we’ve now enjoyed two great dinners, one featuring chicken and sausages and the other consisting of sirloin tip roast. The smoker dismantles easily for cleaning, though the parts are a bit large and unwieldy for the kitchen sink. It’s exactly what I was expecting, though, and I feel it’s a fine product.”

Replacement heating elements are available for about $33, which is one of my major criteria for choosing an electric smoker. It holds about 50 pounds of meat total on 2 smoking racks.
There are some down sides to the Brinkmann Smoke N Grill though. It is NOT insulated, so cooking in cold weather could pose a problem. It does have wooden handles, but the rest of the unit could get hot, so be careful with it around pets and children. Also, be sure to put meat that will cook faster on the top rack, as it would be inconvenient to get to the lower rack through the top of the unit while trying to maintain cooking temperature.
Not a bad smoker for the price. The low price on the Brinkmann actually makes me rate it higher than I normally would.
