Answer: 
Make sure the regulator on the smoker is turned off on the smoker before opening the tank valve. If not the sudden rush of gas and through off the OPD and limit gas flow.

Answer: 
This is not normal. When smoking food the temp range can be as high as you prefer although most of the time you want to go low and slow with temp and time. My issue has been keeping the temp low enough when using propane.

Answer: 
If you do not put any water in the water pan, then you can get it to well over 400. That is part of the "Pre-season Instructions" on page 16 of your manual.

Answer: 
Now I'm confused. The Master Built tech answered this question by saying you need to run it at 225 to 250 to produce smoke, but in the operations manual, the smoking chart uses 200 degrees as the temperature for smoking all meats.
Which one is it?

To begin with, use chips not chunks. Secondly, try soaking you chips in water for 30 minutes and then let the chips drain for 30 minutes before you put them in the bowl.

I'm not a fan of charcoal so I was wondering if I can use wood instead.

Answer: 
you can certainly use wood, but you will use a lot more wood than charcoal. wood will burn quicker than charcoal. charcoal actually smolders. I also find that charcoal gives an offensive taste

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 137 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good The grill is great and what I expected. I received the package damaged and there were a few scratches on the grill. There was no damage that prevented the grill from working. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This thing rocks! I received this as a gift for my birthday, I wanted one so it was perfectt. Fired it up for the initial burn off empty with no water and when the temp soared I was bummed because it was on low. Since then I have learned that with food and a full water tray low is about 240-200 depending on the wind and your damper settings. April 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Best food without the hassle I checked this unit out in store then ordered it online as HD was offering free shipping. My thought was to avoid the hassle of fitting it in my car. Shipped from CA to NY, took ~ week. Easy to assemble, instructions and labeling were good. Unit did have damage, the front door has two dents / creases across it and the handle on one damper is broken. I kept it as it is cosmetic damage and I didn't want to wait for replacement parts / exchange. Buy yours in store. Do not follow the recipes in the instruction manual. Cook temps should be higher unless you like brisket as tough as leather. DON'T TRUST THE THERMOMETER, get a digital one I rubbed the unit down with oil and broke it in, bringing temperatures over 400F for about 20 minutes. First cook I made a 10lb Pork Butt and 2 full racks of Spare Ribs. The foot print / size is small so you have to cut the ribs into smaller lengths to get them to fit. The cook took ~10 hours (ribs took only 5 hrs). Temperature stayed at 270 +/- 15F of what I wanted using med-low setting on Propane with a couple pieces of charcoal in the pan. Temperatures outside were around 40F with no wind. Soak you woodchips! I used hickory and tried unsoaked/ soaked and also tried foil 'bombs' (wood chips in a foil ball with a hole at the top) to keep the flames off of them. The foil bombs worked good. Water pan is small so you need to fill it ~every 45 to 60 minutes. I added wood chips at this same interval but only for the first 4 to 5 hours. Also, add a foil pan to the lowest rack while cooking to help minimize the mess and catch the drippings. The cook went flawless, the food was maybe the best I've ever had. Fall of the bone ribs and the pork could have been shredded using a plastic spoon. Really nice, dark bark and deep smoke ring. That said the butt went into the smoker after only 15 minutes of rest after coming out of the fridge. I cooked chicken quarters and made some chipotle peppers in my last cook. I've become more confident with the unit and it's behavior. Med-Low temp is the sweet spot for ~270F. Again, the water pan needs to be filled every 45 to 60 minutes. Wood chips need to be added every 45 to 60 minutes. Beyond that you can walk away. Key features are that it is propane gas fueled and that there is a second, small door for you to add woodchips. Look for this in any unit. The food is better than an electric smoker and there is way, way less hassle than using an offset smoker. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best smoker I have ever owned I bought this smoker when it went on sale for fathers day. I used it for the first time on 4th of July to make ribs. I was amazed on how it held a temperature of 225 degrees for 6 hours straight. When you first fire it up the temperature would fluctuate until i found the sweet spot, which is fairly easy thanks to the flame control knob. Don't bother looking at more expensive smokers, this one is awesome. The only downside is that you have to cut the ribs down to 14 inches so they can fit. That wasn't a big deal for me. July 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product and service The smoker is an excellent replacement for the one which died. The Home Depot service rep made sure that everything was done well because this was a part of multiple purchases. At first it appeared that I was going to have to take the smoker home in a box and assemble it myself, but the customer rep made sure that I had one put together before I left. I've already used it once and it was great. The water bowl is a little small and has to be checked frequently. July 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great gift I bought this for my husband for Father's Day and he loves it. We've already smoked 3 chickens and 9 pound pork shoulder and it was all delicious. It is very good at maintaining temperature and he doesn't have to hover over it trying to regulate the temp. I had Home Depot assemble it for me and they did a great job. Excellent product at a reasonable price. July 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good and Bad I've had this D/F Smoker for exactly 2 months and the propane regulator took a dump. The thermometer that came with the smoker was a piece of junk and the temperature was off by about 35 degrees. You can't get good results if your temperature is that far off. So, the Masterbuilt will cost you about another $75 on top of the purchase price one way or another. Now then, it is difficult to regulate the temperature inside this uninsulated box so you can forget any notion of setting it & forgetting it. If you're thinking about making jerky with this contraption, you can do it, but if the ambient air temp is above 60*, you'll have to regulate the burner flame by turning the control knob up past high and getting a lower flame by taking it closer and closer to the flame off position. You'll also need some way to generate cold smoke. I bought a vortex pellet smoker. If you use wood chunks or chips, they will both affect the temperature in a big way such that you will be coking the jerky instead of drying it. For smoking pork or beef, again, I've resorted to using the cold smoker. The other methods cause a spike in temps and you don't want that. You will need some aluminum throw away pans for water to hold moisture in the smoker because the tiny water pan that comes with the unit doesn't last long at all, and the large water pan will help regulate temps somewhat. There's a lot to be said for the electric digital smokers that control temperatures and also for the offset smokers. If I had it to do over again I'm not certain I'd buy a propane model. July 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handy Smoker Easy to set and maintains heat well. Smoke cycle is a little short but lower door makes it easy to add chips. This smoker is and does everything I hoped it would. July 12, 2016
