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
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 got this smoker about 3 months ago for Father's Day and have been very pleased. Regulating the heat and smoke is a challenge but can be done. I read numerous reviews on this smoker about problems with rust and welds breaking. I haven't had any of these issues with mine. Metal rust and if you don't take care of it I don't care what you pay for it, it's going to rust. I bought the cover for this Pecos Smoker and it really helps keep the inside dry when it rains since mine is exposed to the ... weather. Cleaning out the ashes and brushing down the grates after each use also prevents rust. Don't see any reason why this thing wont last a very long time. For the price you can't beat it. I enjoying smoking and learning how to control the heat and smoke is just part of it. If you want a smoker that's easier to use then try one of those electric smokers or something else.
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 the smoker for two years. If you live in a cold area it will take a least an hour to reach 225 if the temp. is around 30 degrees. The heating component is fairly cheap and I have no idea how long the smoker will last. The one issue I found is if you let your wood chips in for the whole duration (ie. brisket for 8 hours) even though you add additional chips through the tube, the meat has an acrid flavor from the wood. I found that removing the chips every hour for three hours seems to ... solve the problem. I would recommend purchasing the unit on sale as it is an affordable smoker.
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
Left door had a seal leak which caused condensate to get inside the double pane glass. I called customer support which as of right now cannot pull up the smoker with the item # so they can replace the door. Other than that it cooks very well, lots of room, holds temperature perfect. Also I like the fact that it includes all the different cooking racks and a COVER. Cleaning was a little time consuming but expected. I will give another review after I cook a couple of more times and update on ... customer support for the door.
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 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!
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 bought my pit a year ago at the Academy in west Katy (i10@99). Had to rent out a uhaul motorcycle trailer to move it due to its weight. As soon as I got it home I installed the thermometers, lit a fire, and then installed some Tunning plates, pits this size will need Tunning plates you can't get even cooking with pits of this length without them. Within a weeks time I loaded up 4 briskets in the main chamber and 12 racks of St Louis ribs cooked them over night served in the evening for friends ... and family and have loved it ever since. I used it 2-3 times a week, clealing the ash out of the box while I cook and then immediately afterwards, a pit of this quality you need to keep clean. Get a brush and a metal pan keep it clean while you cook and afterwards and it'll last you a very long time. I also purchased a drain ball valve since it's not included. I can't say enough nice things about my pit, I love it and will be looking to purchase another pit soon. Thanks.
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 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.
Before I used the master built electric 40", got tired of replacing them. Went with the XL GAS MB smoker required more effort to watch the temp. Cooked 3 Boston butts and they turned out moist and so tender in 7 hrs really impressed. I'm happier with the gas rather than the elect. And less to go wrong with the unit.
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.
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 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.
Bought this smoker last weekend. Seasoned it up on Saturday. My neighbor and I cooked all day Sunday with it. Holds temp real well. He Smoked 2 - 10lb butts, I Smoked a pork loin and some jalapeno poppers and some homemade sausage. Started with Charcoal and changed to Hickory wood to keep heat going. 6 hrs. total smoking time. Food was amazing. There are a few things that Old Country could do to improve smoker. I have a welder and will attempt to make the repairs myself. But, They could add a ... stem on each of the stack lids so you don't have to reach over the top to adjust, the firebox rack needs a lip on the back so when you pull it out and load it, the charcoal doesn't fall off, and it needs a lip like the bottom shelf so it can balance over halfway out. Why doesn't the top two racks have this as well? Overall, Great smoker. I am no expert just a weekend smoker.
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 have had mine for 3 yrs now and couldn't ask for anything better other than a custom ordered pit. Whether your smoking or cooking on the gas for a quick burger this pit is perfect.
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.
