Check out this real review from a real dad for a Masterbuilt Electric Digital Smoker!
“Loving this smoker so far. I just got into smoking and the Masterbuilt is helping me look like a pro. Temperature gauge is reading accurately – tested it out with another thermometer and both were in tune. Sturdy overall and not that heavy to carry. I think it would be better if there was even a small handle to help move the smoker around when needed, like storing it inside than leaving it outside with a cover. Box that the package came in was a little beat up, but the smoker itself was wrapped well inside – same with the grill grates, pans, etc,. I’ve used it twice last week and I’ve already improved my cooking “skills” with making fall of the bone baby back ribs.
As for cleaning – I did take the recommendation of other reviewers and did not leave any additional grates that were not needed in the smoker. Also, would recommend lining the water pan as well as the drip pan with aluminum foil as this would save yourself from a lot of scrubbing.
I’m liking this smoker a lot but a part of me feels like I should have just paid a little more to get the one with the glass door as it would let me see how the bark on the meat is coming along as well as wow factor for guests. Only reason I got this one without the glass door is that I’ve read the temperature holds better in this model. Who knows, I might give this used one down the road as a gift and get the glass door one for myself once I get better at smoking meats!”
