Masterbuilt 4 Rack Digital Electric Smoker w/Remote, Cover & Window
So easy to use
I have had this unit since June 2014. I've done 5 pork butts, 3 briskets and several racks of ribs so far. I agree with a lot of the reviewers that it would be nice if they gave you a recipe for each of the main proteins that people smoke but if you have a computer you can find thousands of recipes for rubs, smoke types, sauces and tips. Do I get the same quality product as my friend with the huge wood burning offset smoker? No, but that's OK because it produces a darn fine finished product (have had a few friends accuse me of buying pulled pork from the BBQ joint down the road and passing it off as my own) and it's so easy. He has to stay close by and monitor the temp and adjust the airflow, I go to my daughters softball game while my food cooks. It's as easy as a crock pot.

Only worked once. My husband was so excited to cook in it again a week later, but it wouldn't turn on. Sent it back and did not replace.
We love it!
I ordered this smoker for my husband almost one year ago. We love it! It is so easy to use and the food is awesome!
Do Not Waste Your Money
Sorry, but I bought this for a Christmas present for my husband and it doesn't smoke or stay on. I am about to put it on the curb for the next trash pickup day. Very disappointing. We have a gas one from a different manufacturer that works beautifully.
This is my first electric smoker. Very easy to use. Great for a first smoker takes most of the work out of the process. I have a charcoal smoker and it takes a lot more attention. Remote works great, gonna make things real nice when it gets cold out. Also arrived earlier then expected...received it in only 3 days.
This product stopped heating after two hours of use. I had used it on many times before. When I tried to restart the system the display went blank and then began beeping. I called Masterbuilt and asked for replacement parts. The company was very good at sending the parts. I replaced the motherboard, and this weekend tried again. I preheated the unit to 250F. I put ribs on and lowered temperature to 235F for smoking. My wife and I went shopping for two hours. When we returned I checked the unit. The system was off and the temperature was 174F. I tried to restart. No good. Same blank screen and beeping.
Do not buy this unit. Poor electronics in the system.
QVC Easy Pay + Smoker = Happy
This was my first QVC purchase. I had been saving for a similar Masterbuilt Electric smoker and came across this one on QVC by accident. The price was great, came with more features than the one I was saving for, and came bundled with a cover. Because of the Easy Pay I was able to get it sooner and start enjoying it months earlier than planned.
The product is great. Fantastic temp control, which is so important with smokers. Easy cleanup afterward. Made ribs and cornish hens and they were awesome. Discovered that if you load 50% soaked chips with dry chips you only need to load chips every hour. Unit arrived earlier than estimated delivery. Very happy with my first QVC purchase.
Broke the second time I used it. Call master built at least 4 times (waiting at least a week in between calls).
The last time I was told the order was on hold because I did not show proof of purchase.
I told them on the last phone call they requested it and I emailed it to them.
Asked for a supervisor and they found where I had sent it in.
I would not recommend this because the remote and digital stopped working after the second time used.
Absolutely Love It!!!!!!
Have had this since August 2013, and truly enjoy using this. We have 2 charcoal grills (1 with attached smoker), and 1 gas grill. I can count on 1 hand with fingers to spare how many times we've used those since receiving this. Absolute ease of use. Remote control (Good Idea). I really enjoyed using it through this past brutal winter we had. I've always liked grilling in winter months here in Mid-West. Just love to tease the neighborhood with the smell of summer in the middle of winter. Easy to clean if you clean after each use. But if you forget or just let it go a few times, oven cleaner does the trick nicely. Even on the window. Just be sure to properly wipe all residue out, so no strange smells to get into food on next use. Hope you enjoy yours as much as we do. HIGHLY RECOMMEND !!!!!
Well cut both my legs off and call me shortly this smoker does everything it said it would absolutely the best purchase I've ever made it does all the work a phenomenal product
A FATHER"S DAY GIFT TO MY HUSBAND!
I purchased this for my husband's Father Day Gift. It was easy for him too put together. We cooked turkey wings for first use. The skin was a little tough, but the meat was tender and good. Got too figure how to make them more tender. Next we tried chicken, hot dogs, hamburgers, shrimp and pork. Meats very very tasty and tender. Best hot dog I have tasted in a long time. The cover is good Will store in shed during winter season, but will use year around.. My husband is very pleased with it. 5 STARS PLUS!
