how do you get the temp down to 200 degree's if its at the lowest setting and running at 270?

Asked by: glc
Try turning the temp control clockwise to almost the off position. Watch the flame, it will get smaller and smaller just before it is off. I think it's a problem with the valve it just doesn't go low enough when turning it all the way counter clockwise. I was able to keep it at 200 pretty consistently.

Asked by: tomtom
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we do not recommend that you deviate from the propane set up that is included with the unit and only use propane with the unit. Any alteration or change in fuel type will void your warranty and can also create safety and fire hazards due to using the unit in a way that it is not designed to be used. We hope you will find the unit is terrific just as it is! Please let us know if you have any further questions! Thank you for choosing Masterbuilt!

CookMaster Propane Gas Smoker is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Smoker I've had this a couple weeks now. I've found that it is very difficult to do things at low temperatures with this. The lowest temperature possible seems to be about 220F with the dampers fully open and the gas on the lowest setting. I'm hoping that once the outdoor temperature drops it will be easier to control the temp (it was about 22C when I used it). Even with the elevated temperatures and the dampers open, I was still able to smoke trout and it turned out amazing. For the price, I think this is a pretty good machine. I don't imagine it will last more than a few years as the metal is fairly thin, however it will get me smoking!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent smoker, great price Purchased this smoker a few weeks back. Setup was pretty simple. I followed the manufacturer's recommended procedures for seasoning the smoker before using it the first time. I cooked 2 racks of ribs this past weekend. I found the temperature hovered around 350 degrees (Dial @ medium). Temperature gauge seems to be reading way hotter than what my Oven gauge was reading. I was able to maintain around 225 - 275 using that gauge. I found I had to add water several times during the cooking process (ran dry). With no water in the pan, the temps went quite high, but dropped as soon as I added water again. Here's how I cooked my ribs (if it helps anyone else): I used my favourite rub, applied generously on ribs (remember to remove membrane). Let the ribs rest for 2 hours at room temperature. Heat the smoker to 225 degrees. Fill smoke pan with chips and water pan with water. Place ribs on upper-most rack. Leave them for 1 hour. Just remember to check your water levels, and add wood chips (if you prefer). At the 1 hour mark, go and remove the ribs (leave smoker on) and place ribs in heavy tinfoil, meat side up. Loosely fold tinfoil closed, create a tent like structure. Place ribs back in the smoker (top rack) at same temperature. Cook for 1 hour. You can chose to spritz the ribs with apple-cider, etc. (I did not). At the 1 hour mark, go and remove ribs from tinfoil and, again, place ribs on top rack (meat up). Mop with your favourite BBQ sauce. Cook for 20 minutes (let sauce caramelise.) Remove. Let ribs rest for 10 minutes and serve! **Note: While my ribs did come out tender, they were NOT fall of the bone. They were more like a simple tug the meat away from the bone when I bit into them. They were not tough. If you leave the ribs in the tinfoil for longer (add 1 hour to cook time) they should come out falling off the bone. If that is what you prefer. This was my first round at cooking and I was not disappointed (nor was my family!!) Pros: Price point. Uses very little propane, even at high temperature. Cons: Light metal. Seems hard to maintain LOW temperature setting (225 degrees) Overall I am very, very happy with this smoker. I recommend it to anyone who is just starting out and maybe doesn't want to spend a small fortune on a propane smoker.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value for the price The smoker was easy to assemble. I have only used it once, I smoked ribs, but I was very pleased with how it worked. The temperature gauge is way off and it was hard to keep the temperature low, but with a little effort it worked out. Not the best quality, but excellent for the price. I suggest not using wood chips but get the wood chunks instead. The chips burned up way too fast. I think it was because being a gas smoker and having the chip dish sitting right over the flame that it got hot very quickly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE IT!! The biggest issue was that it was dented during shipment. Just a cosmetic thing. Big concern is that you can't adjust the flame cool enough... it wants to run over 275 degrees... at the low setting. It is nice that the racks fit in the dishwasher for quick clean up. Have always wanted a smoker, and this is a great entry level one to start out with.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does the job but it's horrible This smoker, don't get me wrong will do the job it needs to do. However, it is a horribly built product. I've used mine a number of times and one of the major issues is temperature control. When I'm smoking ribs I like the temp at 250°. This smoker on the lowest flame setting and with vent wide open I was only able to get the temp to drop to 275°. 275° is also a workable temp for smoking ribs. So I sat there for 15 min watching to see if it maintains the 275° degrees and it did so. So I left it, came back 45 min later and now the temp was up to 375°!! Makes no sense and now I've been cooking at a much higher temp than what you should. I'm already on the lowest flame setting and vent full open! So what do you do?? I had to open the bottom door where the burner and water pan is to drop the temp. After playing with the door adjustment to how far I wanted it cracked open and leaving it open. I was able to maintain a 250° temp for my last 3hrs of smoking. You should absolutely not have to leave one of these doors open to get the temp to drop. The smoker door does not create a complete seal either as the smoke seeps through the door. There are seals you can buy to put around the door yourself though.
