Review: Masterbuilt Electric Smoker 40 inch

The Masterbuilt range of electric smokers are among the most popular electric smokers among BBQ enthusiasts. The fans of the Masterbuilt electric smokers range from BBQ newbies who have just started getting into smoking as well as more experience smokers who move on from charcoal and gas smokers to the Masterbuilt electric smokers for the pure convenience. Masterbuilt’s latest electric smoker is the new Masterbuilt Electric Smoker 40 inch with window. This is a cabinet-style smoker that looks pretty much like a small refrigerator or a wine cooler at about 40 inches high. Masterbuilt also has a slightly smaller version, the Masterbuilt Electric Smoker 30 inch. If you only plan to cook for small groups, the 30 inch version is a good choice as well. We picked the Masterbuilt Electric Smoker 40 inch with Window as one of our top 3 electric smoker picks because it is an amazing how many features that Masterbuilt managed to pack into the smoker for the price. Masterbuilt has put a lot of thought into the features that have been added. These features have not been added just to add another bullet point on the box or brochure. All these features add together to make smoking a simple task that anyone can do while producing great tasting food. Please take note that our featured model is the older version of the 40 inch Masterbuilt Electric Smoker that has a smaller window and the controller is located at the back of the unit. The newer version has a larger window and the controller is located at the front edge right above the front door. Other than the 2 main differences above, both versions of the 40″ Masterbuilt Electric Smoker are about the same. However, the newer version have numerous issues including a potential fire hazard issue caused by the design of the wood chip tray. Because of this, we do not recommend getting the newer version. However, Masterbuilt is releasing a newer version of the 40″ Masterbuilt Electric Smoker that is expected to be made available on 30 June 2015. We will review this newer version in due time.   ModelMasterbuilt Electric Smokehouse Smoker 40 Inch Image Cooking capacity (lbs)Approximately 35 Cooking space (square inches)900 Adjustable racks (nos)4 Temperature Controller TypeThermostat, digital Cooking Temp Range (°F)100 to 275 Heating Element Power Rating (W)1200 TimerYes, digital External Dimensions (in)19.6(W) x 25.7(D) x 40(H) Other featuresRF remote control for smoker temperature, timer, internal light, and meat temperatures Built-in meat temperature probe Side wood chip loader Front access drip pan Built in wheels and handle Viewing window and internal light Front mounted LED display for internal light, temperatures, and timer Warranty...
