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.
The smoker is well built. Mine had accurate temp sensors. Good insulation, no smoke leaks. Love the remote control, a necessity when using in bright daylight as onboard readouts are near impossible to see. Advice: Get the AMNPS! It works great for long smokes overnight. Built in chip device lasts only abouit an hour and would need a refill or two. My 18hr overnight brisket was fantastic. Be sure to line drip tray and water pan with foil for easy clean up. Leave vent open, not closed as some manuals say.
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.
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 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 ordered the item, and it arrived on time. It was easy to put together! I bought this a few weeks back for a yearly cookout we have. Normally I am cooking or grilling all during the day and can not spend time visiting with friends! I practiced smoking ribs one weekend day, and a chicken the next day w/potatoes! By the following weekend I felt pretty good about smoking a pork shoulder! All of it has come out great! Moist & tender and very juicy. All was perfect! I love the remote! The ... unit keeps the desired temp very well! You do have to be quick about opening the door as the heat will escape pretty quickly.
I bought this smoker about a month ago, I have already used it several times. The double doors make it nice adding and removing the food, glass doors are handy, don't have to open it up to inspect what's cooking, (no lose of heat or smoke). There are only a couple of things that I don't care for and that is the doors don't make a complete seal and the vent on top doesn't close as much as I would like. Good overall smoker
I bought the smoker the day before Christmas noticed that the overlaying door had a gap. The magnet on the overlying door has six shim washers if you remove the Sim washers the door Seal will lay flush on the frame after that it was a pretty nice seal.
I have had several smokers and I currently have a larger propane one I mostly use. I bought this one because it was small and I could take it with me. For the size and price I am very happy with it. Other reviews complained about the magnetic door latch always opening. Mine has a metal latch and it works great. Others said smoke leaked around the door. Mine does leak some, but I don't care. The temperature stayed a constant 225. I verified the thermometer in the door with another one and ... it was right on. Makes a great warming oven too.
I've had this for a month i have been cooking in it every weekend. At first I tried pork ribs cooked them too long made them tough to eat. Since then I have been cooking whole chickens and turkey breasts. The meat comes out juicy and flavorful every time. The only drawback i have found is in order to put more chips in the pan you have to open the door so you lose the heat and with the bottom rack installed it's a little difficult to get the chips in the box.
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 bought this Saturday after my firebox on my cheap smoker had rusted out. I was very impressed for the first go around, and felt like it contained heat extremely well and was very easy to operate. Performed great on a pork butt, chicken wings, and ribs. Going to do a brisket next, now that its seasoned. Easily kept it at 215-230 for the first 7 hours and started tinkering with ventilation after adding too many pieces of wood and had a flare up due to user error. It quickly choked back down ... to a comfortable temperature range.
This is one well made smoker like the thought of a stand up one but never would have guessed I would be this impressed. 1st it built really well it doesn't leak much from the door which is really surprising, 2nd the fire box is big enough and so easy to operate and once again tight seal I didn't even see and smoke come from it
I wanted to give this grill a 5 rating because of its versatility except for one thing. I have used both the gas and charcoal grill/smoker for about 4 years now and the inside of the gas grill has rusted out. The burner covers have crumbled and while easy to replace, the metal ledges holding the covers in place have disintegrated. Also, the gas line and burners are either clogged or worn out such that very little gas comes through. Again, something that could be replaced but spending more money ... on this grill is not worth it.
I've only had the grill for a month but I can tell I'm going to use it a lot. The gas burners are very hot and reliable. I used the side burner to boil a giant pot and it was very quick. The smoker side is new to me and possibly just a little lacking. The side door has a slight opening that will never shut down air flow all the way, so your lump is always going to burn down at the end. I don't like that. Possibly I got a fluke but maybe they are all the same. Either way I personally will ... have to fix this design flaw if I want to shut it down when I'm done cooking.
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 got this 40 in smoker in june of 16. I wasn't expecting a whole lot. But this smoker turned out good. I only cooker once but the food came out with a great smoking flavor and moist. Easy to cook on. It hold heat really good. I had to open the door to bring the heat down cause it was taking to long. It is great if you don't want to fire up the big smoker. Just wish you could add water and wood chips without opening the door.
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 got this for fathers day and have used it every weekend since. It's the third smoker I have had and pleased beyond expectation. For the money and for somene who usually only cook for 2-15 this is plenty enough of an offer smoker for someone new to the art or a seasoned veteran.
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.
Just finished first session on this smoker, 10 hours for a 14.5 lb brisket. Has all the essentials. Very little smoke leakage. Easy to maintain temp. Easy to assemble and move. Great offset smoker. You may need to buy additional hooks if you want to really load up the hanger. To safely hang my large brisket I used 3 hooks.
