Answer: 
Assuming it is not 25 degrees F outside and breezy, Nope. You should be able to run up over 450 on at least a 40 degree F day without anything in the smoker for cleaning and maintenance (see instruction manual). Turn off valve at tank. Turn on the smoker to let any gas out of the line. Bet you hear a little gas pass thru. Turn off smoker all the way to the right. Then turn on the tank valve. Next, turn Read More
Assuming it is not 25 degrees F outside and breezy, Nope. You should be able to run up over 450 on at least a 40 degree F day without anything in the smoker for cleaning and maintenance (see instruction manual). Turn off valve at tank. Turn on the smoker to let any gas out of the line. Bet you hear a little gas pass thru. Turn off smoker all the way to the right. Then turn on the tank valve. Next, turn on smoker to ignite and push igniter. Should light and you should hear and see a healthy flame underneath the chip pan. If not, and this is a new purchase, call Masterbuilt or take it back to the store. If used, you may need a regulator or the burner is clogged up. Easy to clean out. Most likely there was gas in the line/regulator from turning off the tank and not turning off the smoker before re-lighting. Read Less

It sounds as if your regulator is not functioning correctly. Most people have trouble getting the temperature DOWN to 225 degrees F !!

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.

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.

Dual Fuel Smoker is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 239.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent Smoker This was my first smoker and I'm glad I chose it. It is well made and easy to use. One of the main issues with smoking is temperature control. This unit can stay at 200 degrees for longer smokes and go to 350 degrees if you need it. All with very close control. After using it three times I have a system down that works for me. You need to get into it yourself and see what works for you. This unit covers the bases. Some tips I found online that worked for me. Get the replacement gasket for a large Green Egg and apply it to the cabinet to seal the doors. Both components are metal and did not seal to keep the smoke in. A $12 fix. Also, I replaced the chip pan with a second hand 10" cast iron skillet with three carriage bolts added to act as legs above the burner. It made the chips burn evenly and spread the heat out. I had to cut the handle down to make it fit. A $6 fix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Masterbuilt pro dual fuel smoker It only took about 30 minutes to assemble. I smoked 15+ lbs. of pork shoulders and 2 lbs. of bacon. I didn't pay as close of attention as I should have and over smoked the bacon. Had no problem maintaining the temperature at 200-225 F on a rather cool day and 400 F to season the smoker as per the instructions. You do need to keep an eye on the water pan so it doesn't go dry, every 2-3 hours should be ok. I use chunks of applewood soaked in water for a couple of hours and then wrapped in aluminum foil with slits cut into it for smoking instead of chips in the pan as they instruct.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good price I use the masterbuilt 40 propane single fuel single door...it's HUGE...larger than most backyard enthusiast needs. It works singly well. Ive a friend who has the 30 inch model as described here, which in and of itself is pretty large. The advantage of the 30 inch model...it's two doors allows for chips and water to be added without losing heat...it has dual fuel capability meaning you can use charcoal also...my friend uses the propane burner to ignite the charcoal then turns off the gas...this is a great price on one of the best inexpensive smokers on the market. I highly recommend this smoker.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so god! I had an electric smoker before and this one is so much more "smokier". The bottom door allows you to put more wood in with out loosing heat. Great bang for your buck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good way to smoke pork It is not the easiest thing to assemble but once assembled works great. I like to smoke at low temperatures (225-250 F) but the control dial is very sensitive. I usually spend a lot of time nudging the control dial as it gets too hot or too cold. Of course I had a similar problem with smoking on my grill. But I would not go back to smoking on my grill now that I have this smoker. I can do more meat and I can add water and chips by opening the bottom door without losing a lot of heat in the top where the meat is.

There's plenty of space inside to do several rows of food. You can also remove a rack and do large items like turkey's easily. The width is enough for most applications but the box may be a little snug for full sized large briskets. Great starter smoker for the casual/recreational BBQ enthusiast. I would probably recommend an insulated smoker if you're looking to get into competitive bbq. The only drawback is that the box is non insulated and depending on weather conditions, you may have difficulty controlling your cook temperatures. All in all it's a good little smoker that's great for home use. An important note: Make sure to run the smoker without food at high temp to burn off any manufacturing residue or you'll ruin your first batch of food. This will ensure the smoker is seasoned and ready for actual cooking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rookie smoker I am very happy with my dual fuel. Everything was in good shape when I received it. Nothing damaged. Instructions were easy to follow. I am doing my presmoke seasoning while I am writing this. Its up to 425 degrees no problem. Very nice unit. Not many seems for smoke to escape from either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome propane smoker!! We've used this smoker several times already this summer with awesome results. As long as you are diligent in checking the temp, wood chips, and water pan every 1 1/2-2 hours you'll have success.
