Masterbuilt 4 Rack Digital Stainless Steel Electric Smoker w/ Rib Rack
I got this for my husband for Father's Day... he seems to like it... I hate the taste of food from it... I try to like it but ....I think the price is too high....
Quit working after 6 months
The smoker worked very well when it worked. We have contacted the company and they have sent 3 parts out and the problem still isn't fixed and the smoker doesn't work. They are going to send the body out next, which is made in China and is on back order until mid August. Appears to be low quality, think they need to start making them again in their backyard in Georgia instead of China. Very disappointed with it not lasting longer. The customer service employees have been very nice on the phone.
Don't Hesitate.... Buy This Smoker!!!
I have used this smoker 5 times and everything turns out perfect!!! My favorite thing in it is pork chops. Omg soooo delicious! Would highly recommend buying. You won't regret it!
This arrived as I was headed out of town for a few days. My sister seasoned it and on the day I got back, she had the best ribs ever ready for dinner. We have used it at least 5 times in 10 days. Going to be great for the 4th of July!!!!
MasterBuilt is THE BEST!
This was an early Father's Day gift for my hubby this year. We already had a MasterBuilt smoker, but when he saw this digital version, he wanted that one. We have already used it several times, and every single time the food was awesome. Hubby is now designing a rolling cart with drawers to put this on. I'm pretty sure this is the last smoker we will ever need. Like all other MasterBuilt products, this is the best!!
Got this for my husbands birthday! We went to use it the next day, plugged it in and POOF just like that it all went dead...nothing worked...really? For this expense..really? I read the reviews and was a little hesitant but thought no"..........mine wouldn't break...wrong , so disappointed! I guess one bright light in this mess is we received the replacement part quickly from Masterbuilt so let's see if this works......fingers crossed QVC!
Awesome cooker so far !!! No problems yet. Im hoping nothing breaks like the other reviewers...
We smoked a ham this weekend and it was delicious and it was our first time using it! The reason I gave it four stars is because needed instructions on using it. Like how often do you need to put wood chips in, should they be soaked or dry wood chips, should you put water in the bowl, open or close the vent. Just a few hints would of helped. I also bought the gloves and extra rib rack too! Looking forward to using it this weekend for a prime rib.
I bought mine 3 yrs ago, not in stainless. I absolutely love it. I make jerky, smoke my bbq sauce( i make my own), and just tday i smoked my baked beans, ribs and a mole' pork butt roast. It works great for fish too. I have used it inside, but didn't use any wood chips. When using chips, soak them 20 minutes before adding. I haven't had any problems with my smoker and would definitely recommend it for those like me who couldn't start a fire with gas!! Lol
Did not last long
We purchased this model, or one very similar, a while back. It took us a while before we used it....but....we were so excited the first time out. The meat was great...second time...the meat was great. BUT..the third time, the unit would not heat up. It is my understanding that the digital unit on the top had burned out or something. We had a HUGE boston butt that we were going to smoke, but it wasn't happening then. Luckily, I fixed a kind of smoker in my large Nesco roaster. It worked ok, but the meat wasn't as good. We thought about purchasing another one, but I am not sure we will. This problem seems to be a common thing with this type smoker. We tried Masterbuilt customer service, but got absolutely nowhere. Really was looking forward to a smoked turkey breast....it was just not to be.
Ribs unbelievably good!!!
I bought this for my husband last year. He was a bit intimidated at first, but once he did, IT WAS AWESOME!! Now everybody begs him to make his famous ribs. I was not a rib fan...too much work/mess for what meat you get out of them. Now, I am one that bugs him to make them too. To the customer that wanted it other than electric, this is way better as you seriously just set it and forget it. You don't have to babysit it at all.
The only reason I'm giving it "4 stars", I believe for the money spent, we should've received a substantial recipe book with it.
Love our smoker. Should have bought it sooner. Can't wait to try other things in it. Where can I find a cover for it?
