I bought the 40" electric smoker specifically to smoke kielbasa amd other sausage. After about 6 weeks, and 40 pounds of sausage, I'm more than satisfied with the results obtained for what I consider to be a bargain price unit! I use a ThermoWoeks Smoke to monitor internal air temperature amd it is rarely more than a few degrees off the digital readout. My only minor disappointment is not getting smoke below a smoker set point of 185F.
I bought a master built digital 30 inch smoker about three years ago at first I worked well for making flavorful smoked meat, the after a while it produced hardly any smoke . Now the digital temperature gauge isn’t working right , the heat will not go above 71 degrees

We love our new smoker. It is easy to set up and we had no trouble putting together. I ordered the legs for ours and we are very happy with that decision. I think this smoker is the easiest one to use that I have owned.
Easy to use and great flavor for our food, we love
This is my second Masterbuilt. It is very easy to use and I’ve got great results and happy eaters. Ribs, brisket, Tri Tip, Pork Butt and Shoulder, Chicken, Turkey, corn, beans and bread. I like mixing Pecan with apple or Cherry wood.
Smokes well and easy to use. Only issue is that the plastic cover of the digital readout delaminates easily making it difficult to operate. I have replaced mine 2 times already (at $50 a pop) yet really only lasts about a season. There is a design issue here.

Christmas morning... I"LL BE READY!!! :-)
So here comes Black Friday 2020, my wife asks me what I want for Christmas and I was ready! I pull up your website and I show her your Electric Smoker. She tells me "Perfect, go ahead and buy it for yourself!". Me, being as excited as a little kid I go ahead and order it. A few days later it shows up and I'm trilled and I yell "I"M SMOKING TONIGHT" and then disaster strikes. My wife gives me the look and says that I am not receiving anything until Christmas Morning. I am heart broken. But excited for my first electric smoker. My charcoal smoker is too much baby sitting and I'm taking this time of torture to do research and learn new recipes so when that special day comes, on Christmas morning... I"LL BE READY!!! :-)
I just did my first ever smoking of a chicken and it was awesome. I love the temperature probe telling me the meat temperature. It's too bad I can't see the meat temperature on my Masterbuilt app but it is really an awesome smoker. I couldn't be happier.
I bought my smoker several years ago, and have enjoyed it on a regular basis. Had 2 briskets for Thanksgiving. It was perfect. Set the temp, set the timer, put in the chips, and go to sleep, wake up to perfection.
