Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by wsbnfm Fits perfectly but that is all
The Masterbuilt cover fits perfectly over the 30" smoker. However, that is where perfect ends and a waste of money and unreliability begins. The instructions for the cover states: INSTRUCTIONS
MODELS ESQ30, ESQ40 ELECTRIC SMOKER
THIS PRODUCT IS FOR OUTDOOR USE ONLY. Remember, these instructions are on the front of the cover's instructions not the smoker.
One would think for "outdoor use only" the item would be weather resistant but it is not. I placed the smoker with the cover on and in an area that would not receive direct rain, or snow. I purchased the smoker in early 2013 and secured it for the 2013/14 winter and did so in the early fall of 2013. I uncovered the unit in May 2014 and the outside of the smoker appeared undamaged. When I open the smoker, it was full of rust all over the walls and the bottom pan with mold. The stainless steel water pan was fine. Unfortunately, the smoker is no longer usable. However, it performed so well, during the smoking season, I am purchasing another Masterbuilt 30" smoker but not Mastbuilt's cover. I will cover the smoker, at the end of this year's smoking season, with multiple layers of weather proof material. I learned the hard way and I hope this data helps another consumer not to experience a total loss of their smoker.

It is too short for the smoker, doesn't cover the whole thing.

Well yes it does fit over the smoker, but it's made of very thin plastic and doesn't seem worth $26 to me. Corners are not reinforced, stitching looks quite thin but time will tell. Plus it's too short... it doesn't come down far enough to cover the gas control knob.

The cover fit perfect for my 30" smoker. There is a little extra room but not much. I only gave it 4 stars due to: its not an outside cover. I don't think it would last outside very long. Also wood think moisture would go right thru it. I keep my smoker in the garage next to the grill, both covered to keep the dust and bugs out.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bone Too short, cheap material
Cheap material. Gas knobs and legs are completely exposed. Says it's for indoor use. Who keeps their smoker indoors???

Cover fits the smoker perfectly and makes for a better appearance when not being used. However, it is not waterproof so you still will want to put the smoker out of the elements.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vinney I would give it a 5 but I just purchased it.
The big thing to pass along on the cover that it states on the instructions "FOR INDOOR USE ONLY". Give it some time under the patio and we'll see how the material holds up. I'm not going to store the smoker indoors with a cover on it.

This is a good cover and I am sure that it will do a great job if it fit the smoker that it is recommended for. I purchased the upright dual fuel smoker that is around $199 or so. This was suggested as an additional purchase for that smoker. I thought great idea all in one order get what I need and be done. The cover did not fit so we had to return it and ended up using an old cover that we had from our gas grill. I would suggest buying a different cover or even a tarp for your smoker than buying this cover. Overall great cover, just not for the smoker.
