Bought this last Christmas and use it almost every weekend since. From chicken to pork to beef it all comes out delicious. Very easy to use and maintain. The neighbors think it's great too!
This is my second Masterbuilt electric smoker. The first on lasted about 4 years. They start to rust and build up corrosion after time. The new one came with a water pan, this helps catch most of the drippings from going all over the unit. I also bought the top broiler pan for doing wings. There is a top burner as well as a lower burner. Have not used the top one yet. Make Jerkey with flank steak frequently. Also made ribs and chicken wings.
I've had a version smoker for over 15 years . With all the time generated by the covid. I was really able to focus on my bbq this summer. Turning out super quality product s pork beef chicken . You name it. This is great way to get into bbq and smoking and then perfect your style. 2 thumbs up . Last smoke the old girls element gave up but after 15 years it was time. Replacement came from masterbuilt with the quality cook and products I've produced I couldn't bare to let'er go.
My smoker is great and we really like it. Unfortunately, the digital controller failed and the part number is no longer available. Customer service informed me that there were no replacements. After much research, I found, a Masterbuilt controller with the same form, fit and function that works nicely. The difference is that this has the added function of Bluetooth. Customer service did not recognize the possibility for using the upgraded controller. Unfortunately after what seems to be a very short life, repair parts are not maintained to support products.
I absolutely love my smoker. I have used it for a variety of family events. The flavor it products and tenderness of the meats I use. Also, it’s a simple user friendly product. Thanks, Masterbuilt.
