Cookshack is the standard for straight electric smokers. That said, you can get a very good knock off from Smokin' Tex, or Smokin' It, for less. For ultra-obsessive smokers like me, you can purchase an Auber Instruments PID controller to go with it, that will keep your smoker temp within 1° of the setting, avoiding the temperature swings prevalent in most smokers. Of course, they start out small, and get progressively more expensive for ones with a large amount of square inch space.

I stripped out and rebuilt a smoker from a 6'+ commercial fridge along the Cookshack model, using that controller. In this, I have done 60+ lbs of bacon, 6 large turkeys, or 14 turkey breasts.
