Masterbuilt 4 Rack Digital Electric Smoker w/Remote, Cover & Window
Yummo! Only smoke with the best!
Finally unpacked and assembled my purchase due to the persistent cold and snow, I was procrastinating. Geez, should of opened and used way before! Assembly was easy and there was a three hour "seasoning" time with no food. Ribs, briskets, pork roast, etc. have never tasted so good. I can use the remote easily from my kitchen window while the smoker is on the back patio.
My only negative "issue" I can say was that the back piece of sheet metal arrived "dented" but doesn't affect cooking or flavoring.
This is a great addition to any cook's tools! Can be used year round and makes your meats melt in your mouth. If you have been hesitating like I was, please take the plunge. You won't regret it!
LOVE, LOVE It
Got my smoker week before Thanksgiving. Smoked a ham and turkey great hit everyone loved the smoked taste and so juicy not dry.Love, love, love it.
I purchased this smoker for my parents for Christmas, but we couldn't wait that long to use it!! So far my dad has smoked a couple of turkey breasts, brats, burgers and a pork loin and they all turned out wonderful!
They absolutely love it! My dad has a few friends who have smokers and they have traded recipes and for those of you looking for "how to's" look no further than you tube! There are tons of people who have posted videos about using this smoker. It's a great buy!!
Cannot wait for this one!
I already have a Masterbuilt 3 rack, and I've owned it for almost 10 years. I leave it outside, sometimes covered. I've used it with icicles hanging off of it. I've used it when it's 107 degrees in the shade. It does not have all the bells and whistles of this one. I LOVE IT! We have used and abused it a million times and it keeps coming back for more. Every single thing we've smoked has been delicious. I just had a baby shower for my daughter and did 3 pork butts and 2 briskets without a blink of the eye. Immediately after that, we did a whole turkey (because I was tired of pork and brisket!) I don't have one bad thing to say - it is everything I could have asked for. I'm not one to stand around babying the food while everyone else has fun. Cook it, serve it, and move on! I cannot wait to get this one as it has the light, the probe, the wheels, and the remote. Anything else and it won't even need ME!! I kid you not, every time we bring out the smoker, the neighbors are on the way with a chicken, turkey, sausage, or roast for us to throw on for them. And just to clarify - I HATE smoked meat! Go figure... it's because this smoker does not OVER saturate the meat with smoke, it's a subtle flavor of your choice. And don't limit yourself to just meat - the first thing I did was the mac and cheese and people STILL talk about it. I've moved on to beans, corn on the cob, zucchini, potatoes, etc. Get it and get it now!
haven't used this yet. No recipes of any kind with purchase. Doesn't say if you use soaked wood chips or dry. When I find out I will use it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Masterbuilt 4 Rack Digital Electric Smoker w/Remot
I am not happy with IT. First the light no longer works. You cannot leave the unit outside even with the cover. It cannot get wet and states in directions do not leave OUTSIDE. There are no directions for time and temperate for the meats. I have never purchased anything like this. On their web there are recipes, but no time and temperate for cooking. I DO NOT A RECIPE.
HOW DO YOU MAKE A OUTDOOR SMOKER YOU CANNOT LEAVE OUTDOORS. I HATE IT.
Ordered this unit for my husband. It arrived promptly and was easily put together. The cover was not shipped and one email to QVC and they are going to ship one. We have used this twice-once for a pork shoulder for pulled pork and once for ribs, both beef and pork, mac & cheese, and bacon wrapped oysters. Everything is simply delicious when it is done! Smoky and tender, cooked to perfection. My husband loves the tray on the side to add more wood chips without opening the door and losing the smoke. The unit stays cool to the touch which is a plus with small persons and animals in the vicinity The smoker is a great buy and the service from QVC is beyond reproach. We look forward to many more "smoe-fests" with this unit.
Got the smoker Went to put it together Found wires on top of unit to plug into control missing. Called master built talked to a guy named Nick He said to take plates from back of unit and cut off the plug Sent it all in marked ATT.Nick Have yet to be contacted Have the unit and can t use it Very disappointed Frank Bodnar
impressive low cost smoker
I purchased this 30" electric smoker after a friend of mine purchased the 40" model from Sams Club. He has been very impressed with the performance and ease of use. I thought the 30" was a better fit for me. The smoker arrived today via ups in great condition. It was very easy to put together with very easy to follow instructions. . .even two extra screws. Speaking of screws . . .every screw needed to put this unit together is exactly the same size. All I needed for the complete assembly was a phillips screw driver. Seems like good quality. Tomorrow I will follow the seasoning process for the required 3hrs incl a 45 min smoke to finish. I'll post how the first cooking/smoking went later. . .so far very impressed with this unit for the price.
Easy and awesome
I am not great cook. Since I bought this smoker I have smoked so many things and all of them have turned out FANTASTIC!! I get so many compliments. Not used to that. It is so easy and makes great tasting food. Highly recommend this especially if you want something that you cannot screw up.
Heating Element Does Not Last!
Two years ago, I would have given this 5 stars. It is an awesome smoker and we have had many great meals made in it! That was before the heating element broke. In reading about this smoker on line, I have found this is a common problem. I have also found out that the part may not be replaceable. I will be calling Masterbuilt to find out. However, I believe I will have to replace the whole smoker as others have had to do. The smoker lasted 22 months. That makes it too expensive in my book!
Husband loves this!
Bought this for hubby's Christmas present. We love the food, roast, turkey, ribs, fall of the bone tender! We made entire Christmas dinner in this smoker and the food was full of flavor! Best of all, it is easy to use and easy clean up. We are very happy with this purchase!
