Masterbuilt 4 Rack Digital Electric Smoker w/Remote, Cover & Window
Smoker Did Not Make It Thru A Season
Poor quality, used 6 times cost of meat as well as unit is a big loss started clicking then would not heat up
Best item I ever purchased!!!
Brought this for Father's day for my husband and I have been using it at least 3 times a week. Absolutely love this smoker. Was very easy to put together. Took 5 minutes. I have made pulled pork, ribs, brisket, smoked beans, corn and more. I can't wait till the weekend to cook more. Easy clean up. I put most of the inside in the dishwasher. I wipe the inside with warm water. So easy to use and clean. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the REMOTE. Thank you QVC for one of the best products I have ever purchased.
This is the best smoker I have ever had. I love it. When my husband cooked on it he was like David he was doing the happy dance to. He looked just like david doing the happy dance. Thanks for a great smoker . The best money ever spend on a smoker. The other one's you buy the heat and the smoke comes out every where. Just buy one you will love it.
WE GOT A DUD
Ordered in May - now it is July and we are still installing
parts that will supposedly fix issues.
Would not hold temperature - new control panel sent
Would not heat - had to install a new heating element and
not as easy as they said - could not cook anything
as the second control panel goes on and off.
that quality control on this product is totally lacking.
We are doing company's quality control by having to
install parts - that don't work.
Will try to work with manufacturer one more time
otherwise it gets put out in trash and will get refund.
We were prepared for the heating element issue
as that problem is all over the internet but were
not prepared for all the other malfunctions.
We were looking forward to cooking - not
installing defective parts.
I love this thing
I bought this smoker, going by the ad put on by QVC. Thinking "THE GRAND DADDY OF THEM ALL" would of been the 40" smoker, which is what I was really wanting. But this is the 30" version, but still a good smoker. But as of right now I am smoking a brisket. Yes the window gets dirty, but a rag and some water it comes off pretty easy. This smoker will be used pretty much every weekend. So if any issues come up I will let it be known
I wanted to use this smoker for Father's Day and put it together and plugged
it in and it wouldn't power up so called Masterbuilt and they sent a new part
and tried to use it this past weekend and still wouldn't power up.
So now I have to email proof of purchase to Masterbuilt and then take the plate
off with serial # etc on it and cut off the end of the power cord and send that
to Masterbuilt and they will send me the shell of the unit which I have to
put the inside parts of my nonworking unit inside. What a pain....
I am very pleased with our new smoker. It was a breeze to unpack and put together. Be sure and read the manual and "season" your grill before your first use. After my first all day smoke, I thought it was going to be very difficult to clean..I could not have been more wrong! It was really easy to clean, I did it the next morning. My results were fantastic as far as the actually smoking. I did a pork picnic, a chicken, baked beans and mac and cheese. Smoked meals are not to be rushed so plan your smoking for days you will be around all day. I found all my information on line for recipes and use tips. I would suggest that you do purchase the silicone gloves, rib rack, and mats package, it is a really good value and will be very useful.
First of all no recipes or times for smoking foods. Takes much longer than my old propane smoker, even using the same temperatures. Glass door is a booger to clean and seems like a waste of time, since eventually you will not be able to see through it. Door seals beautifully and the racks are easy to clean. The wood tray is difficult to remove to empty the ashes. After the first use the burner warped downward and is touching the wood tray all the time. Could use some more quality assurance. Overall it works okay. Wish I had not bought the one with the window and saved some money. Next time I will buy one with RECIPES.
I LIKE THIS THING
I used this smoker for the first time yesterday. I smoked 2 boston butts & 1 ham and they turned out with a great smoked flavor and most of all moist !! I also read a review that the parts can"t be changed B. S. everything like the burner thermostat are held in by screws Masterbuit supplies a complete parts lists. I would certainly recommend this smoker to anyone. I used to be a charcoal man but NO MORE !!
Purchased this item ! year ago
I purchased this item from QVC about a year ago and it works ok but the door gasket does not seal good and the water pan developed a hole and is currently not usable.
The finished product (ribs, chicken salmon) were all tasty and good.
The smoker appears to be defective.
It randomly shuts off, so it requires someone to be constantly station by the unit to restart it. This defeats the purpose of using a slow cooking device.
Masterbuilt Customer service refuses to send new unit and is sending a control unit instead. (For me to install)
Lets wait and see.
Easy to use.
Easy to use. Hubby smoked an 8 pd chicken. (Yes a big chicken). It was juicy and tender. Used apple wood. He also just smoked a 6pd pork butt. He brined overnight with herbs and a touch of light soy sauce added to the brine. rinsed,patted dry and used a rub. Wrapped in foil last two hours. So good. Used apple wood.
