The top-rated, uber-popular MB20071117 from Masterbuilt is always the bestselling electric smoker on the market.

Also known as the MES 130|B, this smoker gives you everything you need for great electric smoked results at a killer price.

It’s got full body insulation for excellent heat retention and improved performance in cooler conditions, an appropriately sized heating element for the space, and, a simple to use, digital control panel for precise control.

Inside, you’ve got 711 square inches of cooking space, spread over 4 removable racks. That’s enough to smoke 4 chickens, pork butts or rib racks at once. You can even do a turkey or two by removing a couple of racks.

But, one of the best things about the newer Masterbuilts including this one, is the side-loading wood chip port. Use it to add more smoke without opening the front door and letting all the heat out. But, if you’re after a more set and forget solution than adding more chips every hour or so, there’s the Slow Smoker Attachment that hooks up to this side port and automatically feeds wood chips in for up to 6 hours straight.

The Slow Smoker Attachment is also what you need for cold smoking on the MB20071117 too. It’s a handy add-on to what’s such an affordable, great performing electric smoker.

Bradley BS611 Digital Electric Smoker - Best Set and Forget

Creating an appropriately smoky environment inside an electric smoker can be tricky and take a bit of practice. But, Bradley have made the whole process simple and healthier with their range of self-feeding electric smokers.

The BS611 works a bit differently to regular electric smokers. Instead of sitting a tray of wood chips over the heating element, there’s a separate smoke box that’s powered by it’s own heating element. Doing it this way gives more control over the cooking temperature and smoke levels while creating the cleanest, most consistent smoke for better flavor and reliable performance.

Like all Bradley Smokers, the BS611 burns their Natural Wood Smoking Bisquettes. Plug the smoker into the power, set the cooking temperature and load the bisquettes into the smoking box and you’re good to go for up to 9 hours. It really is set and forget smoking, especially if you’re using it with a wireless meat thermometer to monitor exactly how your cook is going from inside your house.

The BS611 is also fully insulated for great performance when the weather’s not so good. And, it’s stainless steel inside for better durability.

  • You need to buy the Bradley Bisquettes which are more expensive than regular wood chips. But, you can actually turn the smoking element off after a couple of hours (when the most smoke is absorbed) to reduce costs
  • The maximum temperature is lower than a lot of other electric smokers. It’s high enough to low and smoke well but if you’re planning on cranking it right up, this Bradley won’t do it

Masterbuilt MB20070210 Analog Electric Smoker - Best Analog

Simple, effective, easy to use, and, one of the cheapest models out there, the Masterbuilt MES 35B is our favorite for analog electric smoking.

Analog electric smokers have a simple temperature dial which means, unlike digital versions, there’s no fancy digital panels and extra components to break. Simply turn the dial to set the temperature, load it up and get on with your life while your meat smokes sweetly away.

The MES 35B is great for beginners. But, it’s equally as good for anyone who likes to do things well without the fuss.

Inside, there’s 3 cooking grates totaling 536 square inches of space. That’s enough to cook 3 large cuts of meat at once (think whole chickens, Boston butts or racks of ribs). You’ll also get a water pan to keep the meat moist and a wood chip tray for flavor. Both of these are removable to make loading and cleaning easy. There’s also a handy front access drip tray that sits outside the unit making it easy to whip off, clean out and replace when needed.

In terms of power, Masterbuilt haven’t gone budget. The MES 35B has a large, 1,500 watt heating element which is more than enough to create an even smoking environment.

Char-Broil Analog Electric Smoker - Best Basic

With three chrome-plated grates, you can vary the capacity of the Char Broil Analog Electric Smoker depending on the crowd you’re cooking for, up to a maximum of 544 square inches. But, we also love that the unit is also small enough to pop in the trunk and bring to a friend’s garden for an impromptu cookout.

Char-Broil promise the unit is built to last, thanks to sturdy construction and good quality materials. But, as a more entry level electric smoker, we don’t think it’s realistic to get more than a few of seasons out of it with regular use.
