Asked by Mark June 24, 2020

My unit seems to cook fine, the gauge gives me around 150 degrees at level 1 and maxes out at 225 at highest level. If that’s what you’re experiencing, that might just be the unit doesn’t get any hotter than that. I cooked 2 slabs of spare ribs for about 4 hours at max temp at it was well-cooked, which is what I would have expected at 225. So gauge seems to be pretty accurate.

What is max temperature setting?

Asked by Azjoe May 31, 2020

Really nice product. Love the results so far! One thing that is needed is a general cookbook with estimated times and applications for cooking. That would have been nice! For now I rely on the internet for help. Love the fact I don't have to worry about keeping charcoal at the right temperature.

Very impressed
We really love this smoker so far Set up and assembly was fast and simple and I went from box to plugged in pretty quickly even without a helper. We really like the multiple shelves and decent capacity as well and gave it the first real test this past Holiday weekend. This smoker is very well made and constructed with quality materials. I do believe what I have loved about this smoker so far is the ease and simplicity of operation when I compare it to the charcoal and wood smokers I have used for years. You just st set everything up for your batch, set the temperature and let it do its thing. Much less fussing and tending required than the other types of smokers. This ones a real winner.

100 Percent Awesome!
I love the electric smoker and here is why. This smoker keeps the temperature constant which is important when you smoke. The thermometer on the door keeps the guesswork out of if you have the right temp. The insulated interior keeps the heat in and closes tightly. Inside the smoker there is plenty of space to cook a lot of food. The removable racks can be cleaned in the dishwasher. There is a side door to slide slide wood chips in while cooking but I just open the door. If you are quick about it there is no need to worry about keeping your temperature. If you are new to smoking and want good results buy a probe thermometer and cook to meat temp not to times. Also always remember to preheat the smoker up to temp. With this electric smoker the only part you need to worry about is the prep. Once you get it going in the smoker you are all set.

Love it
I've wanted an electric smoker for some time now due to the extra range of items that you can smoke when you have more control over your temperatures. The fun of smoking with charcoal is great, but it is very very difficult to maintain a super low smoking temperature for say if you wanted to smoke salmon. The analog temperature control would be preferable if it were digital in my opinion, but this smoker does an excellent job nonetheless. I highly recommend whatever smoker you use, that you get yourself a bluetooth meat thermometer to monitor your food constantly.

A Lot for the Money
Dyna-Glo's 30" Analog Electric Smoker is a Great Smoker to get you Smoking. All Parts assemble easily and fit Great. It took me about 30 minutes to assemble.The Door lifts right of the hinge pins. Chrome racks that are easy to clean. The Element is Powerful with 1650 Watts. On High (setting 3) it got up to 325 degrees Quickly. 275 on setting 2 and 225 on setting 1. Professional Gauge on Door. Cured it with Hickory for a hour. Ready to start Smokin. P.S Legs make it the Perfect Height.

Third one I've owned. Cooks low and slow year round too. The temperature will go higher but I like 225 to 250 for Boston butts turkeys and brisket.

Door was not aligned allowing smoke to escape. Also, the electrical connection (dial)_ which is used to determine temperature never got above 220 degrees, although the thermometer shows a maximum of 450 degrees. Overall, disappointed I could not smoke the brisket based on these faults.
