When it is making smoke it works great. The wood chamber clogs up. You have to tend to moving the chips around so it feeds to the bottom. I called their customer service line and was told yes it clogs up and it needs to be watched. They make it sound like you fill it up and do not need to do anything further. I might suggest a small fan or air pump to help the draw to the smoking box. Redesign the chip box to lessen the clog up. Between stirring the chip box it does make smoke..Hope they find a fix.

Easy to put together. Does a great job. Now a complete smoked cheese addict!!!!
Easy to connect to the Masterbuilt Smoker, IF you have small hands.
Suggestion. An optional funnel for loading chips into the slow smoker. Once again, small hands have it much easier.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tom Great smoker!
Have used it several times and it works great. I am not a huge fan of the manual chip loader so I bought the cold smoker attachment that hooks in where the manual handle goes and allows you to add chips and smoke unattended for many hours. works great! Once the cold smoker attachment is installed the actual smoker cover will not fit so be aware of that. Both the smoker and the cold smoker require AC so that is two plugs required. the build in timer, temp control, and thermometer seem to work great. So does the remote control. If you had AC available you could easily take it places. its not super heavy and actually has little wheels on it so you can kind of roll it around. so far so good but its relatively new.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by highflyer great addition to the masterbuilt smoker
now this cold smoker works fantastic. I'm very impressed on how much SMOKE this thing puts out. I won't be putting wood chip in the main smoker anymore unless I want to do some lite smoking. now as far as smoking cheese it gets a little to hot for that this cold smoker heated up the main smoker to 117F I did add some ice in the water pan and added a 12'' piece of stove pipe and put it between the main smoker and the cold smoker and was able to get the temp down to 78 F. this smoker seems to be made well and heats up pretty fast it also holds quite a few wood chips. I'm very pleased on how well this works and would recommend it to my friends.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trippw88 This smoker works great!!!
I have been smoking fish and meat for over 25 years and This cold smoker works great!!! I built several cold smoke generators in the past few years and they never worked as good as this one.. The smoke is a little less than the ones i built but, the mastercraft will smoke for 5-6 hours!! I bought it and adapted it to my gas smoker for smoking cheese and it worked good but i had no thermostat so i did go and buy a mastercraft smoker now, And wow, smoking has never been so easy, smoked some venison jerky today and just really love the whole set up!! Great value this set up will last for years....Oh yea, you can use this with any smoker if you want it has its own heating element...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LR696 Works as advertised
The unit was easy to assemble. Trying to get the J bolt hooked up was a little tight for my big hands, but not impossible. Gave out good smoke, was easy to fill. All you have to do is shake the wood chip tower every couple hours to make sure the wood falls to the bottom and keep it full. I smoked 3 racks of baby backs the first time and they had wonderful smoke flavor, tender as could be. I love it. I wish i would had bought it when i bought the smoker unit to start with.
