Bought smoker in November of 2015 and after four months of usage, smoker started experiencing problems starting and shutting off for no apparent reason. Called Masterbuilt to inquire about replacement parts because I thought my warranty had expired. Customer Service indicated that warranty is 1 year instead of the 90 days stated in manual. Masterbuilt shipped me a replacement smoker which I received in less that 3 days after sending them photos showing that existing smoker had been ... decommissioned. Needless to say, I am extremely satisfied with my purchase and the outstanding warranty support received from masterbuilt.
I have an offset smoker also but due to time constants (2 days off per month) I have no time to tend a stick burner and stay caught up with my other chores. I have had my smoker for four years now and love it. I have had excellent results every time.. This smoker makes killer Brisket and Ribs....This smoker alows us to smoke year round with no effort at all
Finally pulled the trigger after using a gas smoker for about 1.5 years. After reading reviews and the advice of my dad, I decided onthe the Old Country Pecos smoker and couldn't be happier. While there is a definitely a learning curve with using an offset smoker, this thing has put a smile on my face all three times I have used it. There are definitely mods that need done such as tuning plates and sealing, but I love this thing already. The only issue I have had is the firebox door didnt ... want to close after my first smoke, but that was nothing a few smacks with the hammer couldn't fix. This bad boy is awesome for the $$ spent!!
I came all of the way from Chicago to look at this smoker and I finally got a chance to see it in Gulfport, MS and believe me I was not disappointed and I just had to have this smoker - I have looked at several smokers in this price range and believe me you can't beat the Old Country line of smokers for the money and quality - I am looking forward to using it soon as the weather breaks in my area.
I have owned this smoker for about a month. I had been using a smoker box on my propane grill, but decided I was not getting that great smoke flavor. This smoker is the perfect size, has great features, and easy to use. The remote allows easy monitoring of box temperature, time and meat probe. I would recommend this smoker highly!!!
I have had one for a year and just bought one for my parents as well. After purchase, you will align all events in your life as either pre or post smoker. Ovens, stoves and grills all hide their faces in shame in the presence of this awesome machine. Vegans and vegetarians renounce their sinful ways with one scent of glorious mesquite or hickory. Thought bacon couldnt get any better? Clearly you have not smoked it over apple wood with a water pan full of your favorite beer. Purchase if you dare...
I got this smoker as a gift and it works better than I expected. When I smoked a pork butt it had to be cut into three pieces to fit in the smoker. This product is great for the beginner and for experienced at smoking meats. I would recommend this product!
Had mine a little over 2 months, they do decent but the temp doesn't get where it needs to be. I believe it's due to the smaller heating element. The doors don't seal very tight so heat is lost there, I even tried charcoal in combination with the wood chips and temps still don't reach 200 degrees. Very frustrating, going to look into sealing it up tighter and see if that helps but I will probably have to go to a gas smoker. If you're looking to smoke a link of sausage or one rack of ribs, it'll ... work for you. But if you want to load it full of ribs.. Good luck. Every time to crack the door to add chips or water the temps falls off and takes a good 45 minutes or more to even get remotely close to 200 and no where near 225-230. Over all It's decent for the price. But for slightly more much better smokers can be had.
We have owned our grill for almost 2 years. My husband loves it. The capacity is phenomenal. We have experienced no issue with the distance between the fire box and the smoker. The only problem we had was trying to find a cover to protect it from the weather. We ended up having to get a tarp and wrap it. It's not pretty but it works. We also had an issue with one of the thermometers however Academy Sports replaced it at no cost. We are extremely pleased with our purchase and look forward to ... having the grill for many years to come.
I have been researching these (in Texas, we have lots of options) for the past year and finally settled on this one. The design of it is top notch. I really like the way the fire box is laid out, including the ability to grill inside it. While I was burning it in, I took the time to tune the main chamber. I used three probes to check it and had a 70-100 temperature variation while I was running it depending on how hot I had it. I used three 4 inch wide tuning plates and got the entire ... chamber within 5-10 across it. I read some reviews that "complained" about the smoke tower not being at the same temp as the main chamber, I am sure that you could add more tuning plates to solve this but I do not know why you would want to. When I have the main chamber at 325 the tower is at 225. I had brined chickens in the main chamber while I had ribs and sausage in the tower. Bottom line for me is that I can cook at different temps at the same time. As to temperature regulation, I opened up both smoke stacks and just opened or closed off the fire box damper and easily controlled the temperature. This smoker was worth every penny, I looked at other ones that did not seal as well and the square smoke tower holds a lot more than the round ones that are available.
I have had this unit for 4 years and it held up ok. The unit was easy to use and great value, however 3 months in the built in thermo.. broke.. 1 year in the wood tray started to rust away... 2 years in the ignighter section fell apart.... 3 years in the knob broke for the temp and finally it decided to go up in a blaze of glory today when the regulator decided to fail open full. Never smoke with this unit unattended.
I bought it a couple days before the Super Bowl. I am brand new to smoking. I did a brisket, a pork butt, and a whole lot of chicken drums. The food that was produced was comparable to the top notch BBQ places around Austin!! Truly impressed as were all my guests. The only draw back was the chip pan. IT is a horrible design. I put my wood chunks, not chips, in a cast iron skillet and sat that on top of the chip pan that came with unit, worked perfectly!!
I bought this smoker as a gift for my husband for Christmas. He had a smoker a couple of years ago but got rid of it because he could never get it to maintain a proper temperature. This Masterbuilt smoker is perfect because it has two separate compartments - one for the food and another for the wood chips, which helps to maintain the cooking temperature because you don't have to let the heat out when adding more wood chips. My husband used it to smoke chicken quarters, venison, a beef roast and ... some baby back ribs. Everything turned out excellent - it was perfectly cooked, very tender and tasted wonderful. He used hickory wood chips with the first try. For the beef roast I think it would be better to use wood chips that have a stronger smoked flavor because while it was good, there wasn't muck smokiness to it. The smoker also comes with some good instructions on smoking temperatures and what types of chips to use with what foods. Very pleased!!
Bought this smoker for Memorial Day Weekend I am new to smoking meats I have used it 2 times and everything turned out great, smoked pork and beef ribs and turkey legs. Great smoke taste. Excellent product and very good price from Academy Sports
Im so glad i got this model. Perfect size!! Easy to transport.
Picked up this smoker fully assembled 3 days ago & seasoned the smoker the next day. Loaded up some char-broil lump charcoal into the firebox and smoked some ribs & chicken the next day. Temperatures remained constant at 225 degrees for well over 3 hours and all sides of my meat took in the pecan smoke flavor. Not that heavy either to load into the back of my pickup also. My meat came out very juicy but with am amazing outside bark from the smoke.
Really good smoker. Only problem, ribs and brisket need to be cut to fit inside the tube. Cooks, and holds temp. well.
Absolutely love this smoker. Assembly was easy, took about 45 minutes. Listened to the suggestions others had on their reviews like using a larger cast iron pan and using wood chunks instead of chips. Glass on the door a plus to monitor the meat. Temperature gauge fairly accurate. Smoker is so simple to use, monitor, and food turns out great!
I bought this for a Christmas present and it is the best present and smoke we have ever had. With a large family, this smokes perfectly no matter what is inside, ribs, salmon, cheese, beans, roasts, even hot dogs and sausages. I with there was a way to add chips without burning fingers but otherwise, best smoker, yet!
I bought this 6 months ago and its been great but every time I smoke meat in it the meat starts to scream like its been brought back to life. Please fix
I have had this grill for over a year and it is the best grill I have ever owned. The smoker works great. It takes a few times to figure out the correct combo of charcoal and wood to keep the temperature where you want it. The gas grill keeps even temperatures. Just make sure you clean the grill plates(not grates) after each cookout to prevent flame ups. Definitely buy the grill cover. I have no rust at all.
This smoker/grill is very durable! Bought it half a year ago and paint still stands up to heat. Gas grill part cook perfectly, doesn't burn or catch flame like my Weber gas grill.
