Can you leave the temperature probe in meat while smoking and then smoke until the probe reaches ...

Asked by Mork May 26, 2020
1
Answer

Hi Mork, you can leave the meat probe in the meat the entire time you are smoking. However, the unit will not turn off once a set temperature on the meat probe is reached. You will have to monitor the internal temperature of your meat during the cook.

How do you PRE-SEASON

Asked by twoodsy3 May 17, 2020
1
Answer

1. Set temperature to 300ºF and run the smoker for 3 hours. Note: Water tray should be empty. To set temperature and time: •Press the temperature button. Use the up and down arrows to set the temperature to 300ºF. •Press the temperature button once more. The temperature is now set. •Press the time button. Use the up and down arrows to set the cook time for 3 hours. •Press the time button again. Set the minutes to 00. • Press the time button once more. The cook time is now set. 2. Once pre-seasoning is complete, press the on/off button. • Do not unplug the smoker at this time. • The smoker is off, but the fan will continue to run for 5 minutes. This will prevent any burn back in the auger. • Once the fan has automatically shut off, unplug smoker.

The smoker turns off after two hours and losses all heat

(What's this)
I was soooooo happy when I came home to see the large box being delivered in my driveway, just knew it was my new smoker! I didn’t have much time that day but at least I got out my boxcutter to remove the heavy-duty outer shipping box, now I had to wait for next weekend to dive in even further. The outer shipping cardboard container was very sturdy, the inner cardboard display container was a bit less sturdy but within that, there was plenty of inner supports and plastic wrapping to keep my new prize safe. Seriously, it took about 20 minutes to extract the smoker and parts, so I could put it together :) Instructions come in English, French, and Spanish so if you read any of those languages, I thought it would be a breeze to follow. Oh boy, was I wrong! The large instruction book hardly has any wording for installation instructions but CAD drawings to depict how to do it. My daughter and I had to assemble and disassemble the legs and supports 3 times before we got everything lined up correctly. Not my favorite part, but we had some fun bonding time doing it! The instruction manual had letter and number designations for each part but we searched the actual parts repeatedly and could not find any corresponding letter or number designations. *NOTE TO MANUFACTURER* It will be helpful to add stamps or stickers to the parts that correspond to the manual. All the screws and nuts were labeled this way but not the actual parts. After the legs were assembled, the rest of the smoker was pretty easy and understandable to build. With one exception... There are multiple drip pans but the one at the front bottom of the grill does not work as the instructions state (Diagram 16, Part #34). There is a brace on the front and back that show to be assembled with the opening at the front. When you get to the end steps and attach the drip pan, it doesn't work. My suggestion, the front brace between the legs should be assembled at the back of grill. This means the drip pan needs to be removed from the back, but at least it can be installed this way. *NOTE TO MANUFACTURER* This appears to be a design flaw in Diagram 5, Part #19, it installs the wrong way. Either that or we can’t figure out how to get the drip pan to attach that I explained in the previous paragraph. 3 weeks later, I was finally ready to spend a day seasoning the grill and then smoking some whole chickens. This does take quite a while to do right so make sure you have plenty of time. Using the smoker’s electronic controls is pretty straight forward. Something to watch for, if no pellets are being fed to the crucible to burn and smoke, the smoker seems to shut itself off, even if you have time remaining on the timer. Lesson learned for me, be sure the hopper has adequate pellets and that they aren’t sticking to the side :) For my first smoke I used mesquite pellets that I bought at the Home Depot. Filling the hopper completely gave me about a 4 hour smoke at 275 degrees Fahrenheit. I am happy with the way this smoker worked and the available room it has. The meat probe showed a temperature, but my other three meat probes showed it was off by about 10 degrees. For instance, the integrated meat probe showed a temp of 168 F but all 3 of my hand-held probes showed a temp of 158 F. Something to keep in mind and experiment with when smoking your own food. And in case you’re wondering, I did insert the meat probes in the same spot to measure.

(What's this)
I was so excited to get this Masterbuilt 340B Pellet Smoker because it is electric and I wouldn't need to deal with charcoal, propane or wood chips.  I was also thrilled to be able to set the temperature and cooking time, the smoking time and the quantity of smoke I want on a digital panel instead of having to babysit the smoking process all day.   Several other very convenient and helpful features include:  4 large racks that remain stable when pulled out, a large hopper that holds about 12 pounds of pellets which is enough for 10-12 hrs, a water tray to add moisture and/or flavor and a handle and sturdy wheels to make moving the smoker easy.  Two of the wheels are locking to keep it in place as well. The smoker was packed well and arrived in perfect shape.  It did take a while to put together, but there were no missing parts and instructions were adequate.  We decided to pre-season the 340B a couple of days before we were going to use it so it would be all ready to go on smoking day.    However, it would not heat up.  After 2 hours of trying and checking all the connections, we called Customer Service for advice.  It turned out that the problem was that we had not primed the auger.  We had assumed that because we were not smoking, only pre-seasoning, that we did not need pellets going into the hopper.  Customer Service was very knowledgable, patient and helpful in letting us know that the auger must be primed every time the unit will be used, even if you're not smoking.  One lesson learned!  The inside temperature of the cabinet while pre-seasoning fluctuated between 275° and 350° even though it was set to 350°.  We thought that was strange, but just gave it another half hour to make up for the lower temps. Smoking day arrived and we prepped an 8 lb pork butt, set the temperature, the smoking time, total cooking time, left the smoke program at the default SP 4 and inserted the meat probe..   We witnessed  the steady, thin flow of blue smoke and the smoker reached our set temp of 210°.    We went out to check on it several times that morning and found the temperature displayed on the panel was not in the +/- 15° range.  It was, at times, a +/-25° - 40° difference.   We  hung a separate thermometer inside the cabinet to see if we could get a better idea of a true temperature.  And again, the displayed panel temperature and the inside temperature were never within the +/- 15° zone.   We also used a instant-read meat thermometer to compare with the probe thermometer and got readings that were between 8° and 12° different.   That is a huge difference, when determining the doneness of meat.  We decided to rely on our personal thermometers (not the display panel or the probe) for the remainder of the cooking / smoking.   Another thing that puzzled us was that most of the ash was all over the bottom of the smoker and very little ash in the ash tray, making it hard to clean. After a total of 11 hrs of smoking and cooking,  a lot of stress, and uncertainty, we were rewarded with the best pulled pork we have ever had!  It was incredibly juicy, perfectly smoked and melt-in-your-mouth delicious! I am hoping as we smoke more, we will become more familiar with and more knowledgable about this smoker.  In other words, I hope there's  just a learning curve before we become comfortable and proficient.  I am disappointed that we cannot depend on the display panel temperature setting or readout for the cabinet or probe and, as a result, will need to check it every hour or so.  I thought that since there was a "set temperature function", that we could expect the smoker to stay within a closer range to what we set.  All in all, this 340B Masterbuilt Pellet Smoker is very well-built, sturdy and smokes a "mean" piece of meat!

Three years and still smoking
I got this in the spring of 2018. It's now well into its third season and it's working great! Cooking three whole chickens today. I don't always super clean it between uses, but I do winterize it in the late fall. It still starts on the dime, get's to temperature in about 20 minutes, and can cook all night. I find the filled hopper will run about 7 to 8 hours at 250 degrees. It's big from a tall standard but it's not super wide so I can't fit a large brisket without cutting it into two. However, the final meat is just amazing. Love this smoker. It's my second dedicated smoker (the first is a fire chief and it's still going). So user friendly!

We used the smoker for the first time over the weekend and we received an error code which forced us to reset. We also had issues with the probe reading the correct temperature. We had to double check with our own probe
