Smoking and barbequeing go hand in hand. However, smoking food is not child’s play; it requires precision of cooking time and temperature, and it is hard to achieve unless you have a good smoker.
Here is a review of an electric smoker that really impressed us with its precise temperature control and a host of other features that make smoking convenient and fun. We are talking about the masterbuilt electric smoker.Lets have a closer look at the pros and cons of this product.
Masterbuilt electric smokers are appliances that make smoking convenient, easy and pleasurable. You no longer have to be on your toes to see if your meat is getting too much or not enough heat, or worry about getting your food undercooked or overcooked (which happens with most beginners).
It lets you control time, temperature of meat, intensity of smoke, and a whole lot of other operations at the press of a “remote control button.” It takes all the guesswork out of smoking, and gives you perfectly cooked food, rich in flavour.
The Masterbuilt Electric Smoker offers precise temperature control, and lets you control both meat temperature and cooking temperature. The large viewing window and the internal light lets you monitor the progress of cooking without necessarily having to open up the smoker door.

It comes with a front access drip tray and 4 large smoking racks, which offer 900 square inches of cooking space, allowing you to cook for large gatherings. The Masterbuilt Electric Smoker gives you the ability to cook at a wide range of temperatures- from 100 to 275 degrees Fahrenheit. The door of the smoker locks perfectly and has an inner liner, which ensures that the aroma stays intact and you get a perfect smoky flavour.
It weighs around 72.2 pounds (36kgs), and measures 19.3 x 25.6 x 41.3 inches. Although it is a reasonably large sized appliance the built in wheels make it easy to manoeuvre and move around.
People living in condos or small apartments may not be able to fit this electric smoker into their homes because of the large size. Maximum temperature is 275 so if you need more heat you might want to consider another unit. Cleaning the glass window is a bit of a mission if you leave it a while and the catch pan on the bottom of the unit is quite shallow.
Masterbuilt electric smokers make a great choice for people who love smoked food, and want a convenient method of smoking food efficiently.
