You may need an extension cord and not any cord will do. Read this article to calculate the size and capacity of the cord you will need.

A 750 watt element burns about half a kilowatt every hour if it is running constantly, which it doesn’t because the thermostat cycles it on and off. At the time of this writing, a kilowatt runs about 8 to 15¢ depending on where you live. That’s a lot cheaper than charcoal, and if you rent an apartment and your lease includes electricity, then running an electric smoker is free!

If it needs less heat, simply open the cabinet and let some of the heat out. If it needs more heat, turn up the temperature.
