Recent purchase but I’ve already cooked Ribs (3, 2, 1 method), cured, slow smoked pork belly / sliced & griddled bacon, hamburgers, jalapeño hot dogs. I purchased the optional rotisserie and will be making a nice pork **** soon. Steak, chicken and more to follow but I have no doubt it will all turn out great! The quality of the Masterbuilt is really good and everything made using the 800 thus far has been excellent. I’ve had numerous grills, smokers (& griddles too) over the years. This is the best ever. Just be aware that your neighbors may demand you make extra based on smell alone!
I've had the grill for almost 4 months now. I cook on it at least twice a week. This thing is so versatile. Low slow, hot and fast, reverse sear, NO PROBLEM! I really enjoy cooking dinner now. Experimenting with different kinds of charcoal and different kinds of wood for different flavors is gratifying. After discovering reverse sear, I'll never cook a steak another way again. Since I got this grill I haven't even fired up my gas grill. I may just go ahead and sell it.
I bought my 560 gravity series 7 months ago and I love it. I had a small hiccup with the door/lid switches (easy fix) but that doesn’t compare to my on going grilling results! I have 2 other grills (pellet smoker and offset smoker) that I have start to neglect a bit. Add my coals and or wood to the hooper, light my fire start and wait 2-3 min, set my temp and throw some meat on and start my Masterbuilt app! Simple and easy for grillers who love charcoal flavor with a digital advantage for ease! And for a good start price at $499. I told my wife this was my last grill but I soon confessed that I will be buying the 1050 when we get more space. Thanks for a great smoker/grill Masterbuilt!
If I could improve this grill I would add a light because I mainly grill outside at night and need to use a flashlight to see what I’m doing. It wound be nice to flip a switch and get instant light on the inside of the grill. It would also be nice to have some sort of window where I can see the current level of of charcoal I have left in the hopper. Other than these minor suggestions the grill is great!
I bought the Masterbuilt Gravity Series 560 Digital Charcoal Grill + Smoker a few months ago and it has changed my life for the better! Gone are the days of my traditional gas grill where I would occasionally cook burgers or dogs. Now are the days of Pork Butt, Ribs, Ribs, Ribs (did I say Ribs?) & Brisket! We're talkin' TRUE BBQ!!!! I've also smoked several whole chickens and even Spatchcocked this year's Christmas Turkey!!!! (I didn't even know I could DO that!) Don't waste time with pellets, this thing burns your choice of charcoal. The charcoal makes the difference. I get compliments whenever I fire up the Masterbuilt...when I hadn't even put the meat on yet!!!
