Is there much difference? I found this Mustang version on E-bay for only $149. http://search.ebay.com/electric-smokers_W0QQsofocusZbsQQsbrftogZ1QQfromZR10QQsacatZ-1QQcatrefZC6QQsargnZ-1QQsaslcZ2QQftrtZ1QQftrvZ1QQsadisZ200QQfposZQ5AIPQ2FPostalQQfsopZ1QQfsooZ1

Personally, I like my electric smoker. It makes it very easy to keep a constant temperature.

A large majority of the flavor comes from the wood anyway. Charcoal might add a bit, but I doubt enough to be noticeable, or missed.

I noticed that there is a big difference in price though. This Mustang looks the same as the rest but is WAY cheaper. 20 pound capacity, insulated. Is there something I am missing here?

You usually get what you pay for. I dunno.

Oh. You meant difference from one smoker and another. Can't help you there, I'm still using a Brinkmann.

FWIW, 20 lbs is nothing. My old Brinkmann box smoker had a 45 lbs capacity and it was too small. Obviously, I wasn't smoking 45 lbs each time out, but I consistently filled the thing.
