I hope that you spend some time at GWW with me!!!  I will pout if you don't...

As for smokers, I have the charcoal type and Etienne had an electric one, when we
smoked ducks for the Viking banquet.  We did all the ducks in the two smokers. Several 
batches. The electric one needed less tending, but didn't smoke nearly as much as the
charcoal one, even though we used exactly the same amount of wood chips.  But the
charcoal needed replenishing during the smoking.  All we had to do was chuck in 
more charcoal, through the door.  Both needed to have more chips added from time to time.
And the water in the electric one boiled away faster, even though they both were at the
same temperature...  From the amount of smoke that came out of mine, I would say that 
the charcoal was the better smoker, but the electric one probably was cheaper, because 
you didn't have to buy charcoal.  And you didn't have to check to make sure there was 
still enough heat. I haven't used a propane smoker, so I don't know about them.
