Editor Review

The Meco 5030 Electric Grill and Smoker is a great little smoker for someone who doesn’t want all the fuss of monitoring the coals of a traditional smoker.  This Meco smoker has longer cook times, less tending to and more control over smoking than traditional smokers found in the marketplace.  This smoker is perfect for fish, chicken and other kinds of meat due to the two step process of using both boiling water (steam) to keep the meat moist and burning wood chips to smoke the meat at the same time. The thermostat has three settings; low, medium and high which helps you control the temperature within the smoker, this type of temperature isn’t found in traditional charcoal smokers.

An added feature of the Meco 5030 is that it doubles as a standard electric grill because it plugs right into a standard electrical outlet.  Due to the large 15.5 inch cooking grids within the smoker, you’ve got a large 351 square inch smoking surface which means you can cook up to 50 pounds of meat at any given time.  The Meco also has a large pan with porcelain glazing to hold 5.5 quarts of water which should last up to 5 hours to really extend your smoking time with less human interaction.  It also has easy access doors with slide open to make adding more water if needed if your cooking for an extended period of time. This is a big plus for this smoker, having these sliding doors with convenient access for both water and wood chips means that there will be little heat loss.  When comparing this to standard smokers which must be accessed through the top lid, the difference could have an effect on your meats tenderness and costs due to the loss in temperature.  Another plus of this smoker is the ample 1,500 watt heating element which is powerful enough to heat the whole smoker so you don’t have problems with the lower grid smoking the meat properly while the top grid not having enough heat to adequately do the job.

All in all, this is a nice grill/smoker combo for anyone who’s interested in learning to smoke or the seasoned pro with tons of experience.
