I couldn't get temp past 210, is this normal?

Propane control knob was in high, still only 200 degrees.

How is it DUAL fuel?

Asked by: Guy
Don't even bother using it with charcoal. Pan doesn't hold nearly enough to keep from feeding it all too frequently and yo-yoing the temp when more is added. Other problem is that the pan is slotted, and where does the pan sit? Correct: directly over the propane burner. Burnt coals=ash=acid=falling into the burner=clogging and corroding the burner. Use this only as a propane smoker, or you'll be replacing it in short order.

Does this smoker includ a water pan.

Asked by: Eggy
Yes, the smoker came with a water pan but it just wasn’t sufficient. I like a bigger pan that can add humidity and catch all the drippings. I like a 12 to 14 hour smoke on a brisket and that has a lot of drippings. I actually went to a restaurant supply store and bought what they call a stainless steel half pan. They use it in food serving lines and their not very expensive, aluminum pans wear out to quickly and their too flimsy. You’ll only need to buy one, they last forever. The pan covers most of the bottom grill, holds plenty of water and catches the majority of drips. It’s also fairly easy to clean, and you can just store it in the bottom of the smoker.

What is the LOWEST temp. you can have this set at AND still get wood to smoke? I tried smoking some salmon between 190 - 210 but wood never smoked.

Asked by: joe
2 chunks (not chips, and certainly not soaked) not touching in a cast iron skillet will produce all the TBS you need. You don't need billowing smoke--that's a sure-fire signal that something's wrong, and you sure don't want to soak the wood. Soaked wood=creosote. Ask any competition cooker or barbecue restaurant owner if they soak their wood prior to using. They'll likely fall on the ground in hilarious laughter....

Customer Reviews

Charcoal and Propane Dual Fuel Smoker is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 765.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool for First time smoker Got this for Christmas and have been smoking so much I wonder when the fire department will swing by. I am brand new to smoking and slow cooking, but now have come to look forward to cruising through the meat section at the grocery store, looking for more things to cook with it. The only downside I've found is that I think the thermometer on the door is not accurate (about 20-30 deg. cooler) when comparing to my digital thermometer. Have read this is common, but still I want to do a better comparison test for both. If you are like me and have always loved slow smoked ribs, pulled pork, fish, jerky and whatever you can think of, but are a little unsure of pulling it off, then just try it out and you'll be amazed at your new skills. And I had no idea that there is a huge 'smoker's culture' out there to hang on the coat tails for help and great ideas . A friend has an expensive electric smoker that all you have to do is basically set it and forget it, but where is the fun in that. This is a great start with this unit, and you won't be disappointed for the value.

I haven't used and don't plan to use the propane but I use the charcoal pan extensively. I started out a newbie but I've used it over a dozen times and learned a bit more each time. Let me start with this is a fantastic smoker and for the $99 she spent, it has definitely been worth it. It isn't the best built smoker around, but again for $99 you won't beat it. I have smoked beef, chicken, pork ribs, sausages, etc and even use it as a jerky maker with an electric hot plate instead of the charcoal pan. Here's some things you'll want to be aware of though. 1) The built-in thermostat is utter junk. Do. Not. Trust. It. PERIOD. Invest in a meat thermometer. We bought a wireless model and can check the temp from the living room. 2) The doors don't have a seal so you'll get some smoke (and lost heat) at the doors. Invest in some food safe rtv or a fabric strip sealer. You'll use less fuel and maintain your heat more easily. 3) DO NOT TRUST THE BUILT IN THERMOSTAT! I state this twice and in caps because if you do you'll seriously over temp the smoker and ruin it. There is a review from someone who I think trusted the thermostat and well, if you read his review you'll see the results. 4) Your first few smokings will be missing that taste bud busting smoke-house flavor. It just needs to be seasoned with that nice coating of flavorful fat. Stick with it, keep smoking, and soon enough this baby will be seasoned and you'll be churning out some tasty viddles.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Has issues I've spent years smoking off of a kettle grill and decided it would be worth upgrading to a more hands off approach. Unfortunately that has not been the case. To start the thermometer is broken. I'm talking hundreds of degrees off.The door seems to seep quite a bit of smoke. This is even after adjusting to make it tighter. Last and possibly the worst issue is it has proven to be near impossible to fine tune the temperature. The tiniest nudges on the gas send it in 50 degree jumps - 175, 225, 275. This is all on the low end of the spectrum well before I hit the "medium" heat.What I thought was going to give me a more hands off approach compared to a kettle grill turned into a more hands on approach trying to find and maintain a steady temperature.I submitted an online request for a new temperature gauge to masterbuilt, but have not received a response yet. I can live with buying a new temp gauge and the door seepage, but the temperature control almost renders this useless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value I was relatively new to smoking, so I wanted an entry-level model to reduce my financial exposure in case I didn't use it that much. Now I use it all the time. The smoker is easy to assemble and works well. Along with the adjustable gas valve, there are three air vents that allow you to keep the heat level where you need it. The door closures are also adjustable, allowing you to keep the doors closed tightly or loosely as you please. The slid-out racks are a handy feature, but they are not large enough to accommodate a full rack of ribs or a whole brisket. Great for pork and beef roasts. Once you get the hang of it, you can leave it to smoke on it's own for three or four hours - or as long as your chips or pellets will last. The only complaint I have is after a day of smoking, the upper door tends to warp causing smoke (and heat) to escape through the gap that is created at the upper part of the door. Once it cools though, it's easy to bend it back into shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, LOVE this smoker! I have been dabbling in smoking food for a few years now. I have used my charcoal bbq and my propane bbq for this purpose and have met with mild success and a few notable failures. I received the Masterbuilt smoker for my birthday in late July and it has truly upped the ante in my circle of friends. My first meal was a large Grade A prime rib rubbed in Montreal Steak Spice and slow-smoked with hickory. It was truly amazing. Since then I have smoked my ribs, a whole chicken brined for 5 hours then smoked with wild cherry. At the last Rider game, my friend used my smoker to cook his chicken wings which were without a doubt the best I have ever had. I read a review that commented about how the seals leak smoke and I totally agree. It is no secret in the neighbourhood when I am smoking meat haha. I will work on sealing it better but to be honest, I find myself putting my face in the smoke because the smell is absolutely unreal. I highly recommend this smoker and for the price you really cannot go wrong. I will attach some pics that I think show the deep mahogany colour you can achieve using it.

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 best smoker for the monies no doubt. i was debating on this grill as i was looking into electric smokers as well. a couple of reasons i went with this unit. one, i like to go camping and if i decide i want to smoke meats, i wont tie up an electrical outlet by using propane or charcoal. i do not use charcoal to smoke and i took out the charcoal pan and put in a small cast grate i had and a 8'' or 9'' cast iron skillet to put my wood chunks in. reason? flame from the burner will eventually ignite the wood in the factory tray and the little mod keeps chunks from flaming. works perfect as i smoked 3 racks of ribs (after seasoning of course) and these were the best ribs i have ever made. keep in mind, this unit will get to 400 degrees easy and that was another reason i picked this as electric cant touch that. after preheating, i set the knob on low. kept 225 all day

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.
