I have used a Brinkmann Kettle style for several years for smoking salmon. It has worked great for me. Eventually I would like to get a "Front loader" sytle smoker as it would be easier to get the racks in and out:

I have a master forge front loader from lowes. It's a gasser instead of an electric. But I absolutely love it! And so does everyone else eating the food from it.

The Alton Brown-style flowerpot smoker does an excellent job, and it only costs maybe $55 bucks for all the material. But it is a bit of a pain to change the chips.

I have a Cookshack SM025 and that thing is great, holds temperature really well (I use it year round in an unheated 3 seasons type room) and get a great smoke flavor. It's the only electric smoker I've ever cleaned and that can sometimes be a little work, but I've always ended up with great meat out of there. It sure is convenient!

I was just talking to a guy here at work. He swears by the Smokin' Tex Electric Smoker. His brisket and pork are excellent. He has been smoking for many years, and started out with smaller units like the Brinks and other charcoal smokers. I am considering getting the Thanksgiving Special Package as a combined birthday and Christmas gift to myself... and, er.... others, too. haha.

He says his favorites are cherry or apple wood. Only takes 8 oz or so of the wood per smoke. He also throws in a charcoal briquet for more flavor. It keeps a constant temperature. Stainless Steel. Panels that get dirty are dishwasher safe. I'm telling you, his smoked meat is great.

Now, I just have to justify the expense....
