    I like the electric ones that allow you to set the temp and walk away

    I have had charcoal, propane & now electric as pentail said set the temp ad chips a few times with charcoal you have to pay attention smoking involves drinking beer I do beef briskets for 12 hours at 215 and can`t drink that much beer anymore ;)

    I've heard that the propane dry out the meat a little compared to electric, but you can take propane backwoods camping with you :)

    Propane, because I take it wherever I want and do not need electricity. Huntingtrips, fishing trips, tailgating etc.
