The insulated electric oven smokers have a downside
here. They tend to have lower total airflow, which equates
to a higher humidity in the chamber. When smoking sausage,
which I do a lot of, I solve this by leaving the door open
for part of the cook.
Didn't think of that. Then again I smoke mainly ribs.
With the Cookshack (and many similar units in this
class such as SmokinTex) this problem is complicated
by the fact that the airflow is also 100% fixed. No
adjustable vents. Not a showstopper of a problem but
prospective buyers should be aware of this.
I'll add one more thing. If you have arthritis or are
"getting older" latching and unlatching the cookshack can be
difficult. I'd probably weld a larger handle to it. :)
We're moving beyond "Lazy-q" into "Ultra-lazy-q" here,
I think :)
